For Physicians & Healthcare Professionals: If My Patient is in Pain, Who Can I Refer To?

Issues We Treat



My Patient is in Pain. Who Can I Refer To?


Vital Living has select therapists that have completed an Advanced Certification in Medical Massage Therapy. From increasing ROM, to decreasing pain and improving performance, our therapist’s training has encompassed a wide range of pathologies that can be impacted by soft tissue manipulation—as well as those that are not as responsive to manual techniques, may be contraindicated, or may warrant a referral out to a physician. We strive to collaborate on care for better patient outcomes. If you are interested, please contact owner Janet Carroll, RN by email at, or call (260) 436-8807 for more information.
