Tye Burrell, BSN, RN, LMT
Originally from Boston, Tye wandered into the world of alternative medicine when after her first year as a nurse, she sustained a back injury. Little did she know, this would be the beginning of her journey into the world of massage therapy and alternative medicine.
Receiving regular massages became one of the most significant treatments that helped her get back on her feet. Not only did the massages assist with stress reduction, but they also helped alleviate muscle stiffness and back pain. It greatly reduced the healing time and provided her with a sense of harmony within.
Tye's personal experience with massage therapy made such an impact on her life that the gift of touch was something she wanted to share with others.
Following her dream, Tye enrolled at the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork in Salem, Massachusetts. She soon realized that energy work also captivated her and found herself being drawn to energy modalities that she had never heard of before, like Reiki and Polarity. Since graduating, Tye has incorporated these modalities into her massage sessions.
Tye continues to work as a Registered Nurse, and when time allows incorporates massage and energy work into the daily care of her patients. In doing so, she has directly witnessed the benefits they provide in regards to pain management, stress reduction and giving people a general sense of well being. The positive feedback from her patients has been overwhelming and gives her instant gratification.
