Stacy Pickhardt, LMT
Hello and welcome, I am Stacy Pickhardt, your massage therapist for health and wellness. I came to Pinellas County Florida from NJ about 21 years ago. After a bunch of desk jobs (and lots of back aches), I realized I needed something more mobile and creative. Prior to becoming a massage therapist, I worked as a Medical Assistant for all of 5 years and I very much enjoyed helping patients. However, Medical Assisting quickly became a dead end job unless I became an RN and worked in a hospital setting. I highly respect nurses for ALL that they do but I personally didn’t have the composition to take on the daily stress of a nurse’s career. Once I had enough of doctors offices and getting sick, I made my move into Massage Therapy.
Afflicted with chronic neck and headache issues that plagued me my entire life, I got a lot of tests to find out the cause but never arrived at any answers or relief. The chronic pain led me into a massage clinic with a friend one day (first time ever) and my therapist pinpointed ALL the spots that hurt me for so long. I asked a LOT of questions that day and discovered for the first time a way to alleviate my issues. I’ve been in love with massage ever since. I decided to go for my own practice instead of working for someone else so I can expand on my creativity and grow my business the way I want to. I decided to rent a space in Clearwater and I spend most of my time (outside of practicing) growing and learning so that I can be the best massage therapist that I can be. Now that I am a massage therapist, I feel I am where I belong.
This is my calling!
