Licensed massage therapist Kristine Rawski joined the staff at Wabash Chiropractic Center in early September and adding to the facility’s wholesome healthcare services.

Rawski, a Peru native, received her Associate of Applied Science degree in therapeutic massage from the Fort Wayne Ivy Tech Community College in May. In June, she completed her State of Indiana licensing requirements and is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

Before starting her career as a licensed massage therapist, “I was working in a doctor’s office as a receptionist,” Rawski told The Paper of Wabash County, “and over the course of those several years, I saw a need for helping people that I felt, in myself, I had, but I wasn’t sure if registered nurse (career) was something that I wanted to do.

“So when I decided to go back to school, massage therapy was a way for me to do that, to help without needing (to prescribe) medication.”

Through her training, Rawski is trained in techniques including Swedish massage, deep tissue, pregnancy, biomechanics, sports massage and geriatric massage. She is also able to service those with medical conditions, infants and children.

“I also took electives in acupuncture, Shiatsu and aroma therapy and personal fitness,” she said.

Rawski began at the Wabash Chiropractic Center on Monday, Sept. 4, and is excited to add to the facility’s services.

“I graduated May 12 from Ivy Tech and the following week I started at Solutions Salon and Day Spa in Kokomo,” Rawski said. “I liked working there. It was a great salon with great people, but the chiropractic world just seemed to be a better fit for me.

“So when the opportunity presented itself, when Dr. (David) Frischman asked me to join his practice, I was thrilled because I think they go one in the same. Massage is a great complement to chiropractic care. His patients get more out of their adjustments and prolong their results. It’s very beneficial.”
