Honor Hartzog graduated from the Florida School of Massage, one of the nation’s top-rated massage therapy schools. She is a member of American Massage Therapy Association, Association of Bodywork & Massage Professionals, and Florida State Massage Therapy Association. Honor is visually impaired and feels that her vision loss helps to amplify her sense of touch, enabling her to “read” or “see” into muscles. Honor uses her palpation skills to help access and plan for each session, combining what the client tells her with what she can feel within the tissue. She loves client involvement during sessions and encourages feedback.
