Offering Relaxing or Therapeutic Massage, Pilates & Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Rally Time Wellness, is owned and operated by Deven Reid, LMT, CMLDT.  She is originally from the Virgin Islands so she knows a thing or two about relaxation and has a Communication degree from TCU which she credits for her skill in nonverbal communication with the body.  Deven is trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Prenatal massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD).  After receiving her massage therapy license in 2009, she has gained valuable experience and knowledge from working in a variety of settings that range from high end spa therapy to elite level athletes and alongside healthcare professionals complimenting their treatment plans.  In Fall 2017, Deven was trained in the Vodder Technique (the originator of manual lymphatic drainage) by Erin Maranjian with Klose Training and is now a Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist (CMLDT). Spring of 2023 Deven started her 500 hour training as a BASI (Body Arts and Science International) Pilates Certified Teacher.  

 

Deven’s massage philosophy is to treat the body as a 3D image.  Not only does she treat the site of pain, she also works on the origin and other referred pain sites.  She gains much satisfaction from helping to relieve one’s pain or simply allowing someone to relax through healing touch during a massage or MLD session.  Deven’s broad base of experience has helped her understand the importance of individualized customer service and being aware of the needs and expectations of various clients.
