Jacob Tucker - Massage Therapist, Leadership Team
When I initially started college, I wanted to be a physical therapist. As I studied, I realized that the aspect of PT that intrigued me the most was the massage. I attended East West College in Portland Oregon, and loved every second of it. Wanting to focus my skills on the therapeutic aspects of massage that attracted me, I have since worked at a hospital and a physical therapy clinic, providing relief to hundreds of patients that normally would not receive massage therapy. I am now excited to bring those same therapeutic goals and skills that I have acquired working in those locations into the relaxing environment that Lefore’s Spa has to offer. LMP#MA00019702
