My name is Chris Rader.  I am a  husband, father, artist/ musician, athlete, poet and I love working with my hands.   I care about the well being of others and want to find a way to give back with a “hands on” approach.  I have a genuine compassion for people. Concern for others is what has brought me to massage therapy.  I graduated from Cumberland Institute in Brentwood, Tennessee in 2009, completing a 500-hour program to become a certified Massage Therapist.  I then received  my license to be a  Massage Therapist.

After high school I had a hard time trying to figure out what I wanted to do for a living.  I went to college with an emphasis on Physical Therapy, but it was just too competitive for me to get into the PT program.  I switched my major to criminology to pursue a career in law enforcement, and when I got accepted into the police academy I decided I couldn’t get paid enough to be shot at.  I then got a gig traveling the globe as a bass player for a couple of rock bands.  Playing music was fun, but I just felt that something was missing.

I started thinking about why I first considered Physical Therapy when I started college, and then something came to my mind.  I grew up with a grandparent that was wheelchair bound, and I had seen how crucial Massage Therapy can be for healing.      I think that is what has led me down the road to be a Licensed Massage Therapist.  I have a desire to see people healed emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I want to do something with my life that matters.  I want to touch people’s lives.
