Sandra Rivera, C.M.M.T.
Sandra graduated from South Carolina Massage Institute in 2005 and went on to become nationally certified. In the early days of her career, Sandra witnessed the therapeutic value of massage. She quickly developed a passion not only for encouraging relaxation, but for finding a therapeutic resolution for the complaints expressed by her patients. After moving to Indiana, she furthered her education and became certified as a Medical Massage Therapist through Indiana College of Sports and Medical Massage.
She is certified in Deep Tissue, Clinical Myofascial Release Therapy, Orthopedic Massage for cervical and thoracic pain (including migraines, frozen shoulder, and carpal tunnel) and manual lymphatic drainage massage.
Convinced of the benefits of massage therapy for relieving many of the common discomforts of pregnancy she pursued a certification in prenatal/postpartum massage through the Claire Marie Miller, Nurturing the MotherTM program, one of the nation’s leaders in prenatal massage therapy. Her additional education, wide-ranging background and extensive experience has made her proficient in the relief of a myriad of pregnancy and postpartum concerns while keeping baby and Mom safe. Sandra continued her focus on helping Mom’s and returned to Clair Marie Miller to receive additional education in fertility massage. This additional training, combined with her prior experience, has allowed Sandra to use her compassion and expertise to help women who are trying naturally as well as those who are going through an IUI or an IVF.
Some additional conditions successfully treated by Sandra are sciatica, lymphedema, pelvic girdle pain (symphysis pubis dysfunction, SPD), lowering blood pressure and helping Mom’s avoid labor induction. When Sandra has free time she enjoys relaxing with her husband and 2 sons.
