Andrew Picklesimer, LMT

A graduate of Columbus State Community College, Andrew likes to teeter the line between relaxation and therapeutic massage. He specializes in trigger point massage; playing detective, each knot another clue to the source of your pain. Andrew can also help you prepare for or recover from an athletic event with his training in sports massage and has been known to help with chronic headaches as well.

Client quote: “His hands are like magic! I have had massages before for headaches & muscle tension in my neck & shoulders but none like the way he does it. The areas where he applies pressure & holds and then massages out is amazing. I feel so free of tension and stiffness for several days after. The amount of pressure he uses is great and always will ask if it’s good or should he use more/less. ”
