Established in 1998.

A few years out of massage school, Peggy had a growing business and was doing well, but 9/11 changed all that. She knew her passion was helping people who were in pain feel better.  She was introduced to a new therapy that combined deep tissue massages and cranial therapy techniques that is still evolving and finding new ways of helping those in severe and chronic pain called Structural Energetic Therapy.  A girlfriend of hers was going through the SET® training and kept encouraging her to try a workshop and experience the work.  After the first weekend of a 2 weekend workshop, she immediately signed up for the 2 year training, which now is only 1 year. Doing the Structural Body Work has completely opened a whole new world to her practice.  Before Structural Body Work, she considered herself a serious therapist.  She had a neuromuscular and sports massage background.  She could help clients with common aliments but the tough cases would come back in pain.
