Amato Chiropractic Wellness Center : Massage Therapists

Deborah Stalcup

My name is Deborah Stalcup and I currently enjoy sharing my daily experiences of professional massage therapy with the amazing team at Amato Chiropractic Wellness Center.  This work opportunity has blessed we with numerous occasions to share my diverse massage therapy skills assisting the healing process for many patients.  Helping others feel better in their day to day activities has been and will always be my heart’s desire.

Prior to Amato Chiropractic Wellness Center my massage therapy skills were used in various spa locations as well as self employment opportunities associated with other wellness based businesses in the Statesboro, Georgia and Orlando, Florida area.  Each of these experiences offered knowledge, depth of understanding, and instilled an eagerness to  expand my wisdom of the healing abilities of the body.  In the 13 years beyond my initial training, I have taken advantage of numerous continued education courses affording me the freedom to explore healing techniques and add “tools to my tool belt”.

I am prepared and enjoy working with patients of all ages: from new born to mature age.

Customer service was my career path prior to massage therapy although I see the two very much the same.  It is my goal as a professional to exceed the expectations for each patient while encouraging the healing process of mind, body and spirit.

Jackie Wescott

The healing effects of massage have always fascinated me and I found myself pursuing training in 2012 in Bremerton, WA. I have practiced massage in three states, each giving me different experiences, techniques, and opportunities for growth. I have been a massage therapist in various settings such as spas, therapy centers, and fitness gyms, but therapeutic massage is what I have always been working towards. Continuing to learn and integrate different techniques into my sessions and seeing the progress a patient makes is the most rewarding aspect of my career.

Prior to moving to St. Mary’s, I lived in Connecticut, Washington, and I am originally from Southeastern California. I am a proud wife of a Navy submariner, mother of two wonderfully exhausting children, fitness enthusiast, and outdoor adventurist. I have a love for new adventures and exploring new places.
