Carole Suzanne Jackson, BS, MA, LMT, CMMP, Board Certified
Carole Suzanne was first drawn to massage therapy when her own back pain defied help from chiropractors and physicians. After trigger point therapy provided relief in 1989, she began an apprenticeship with her massage therapist. Discovering her own extraordinary palpation skills, Carole honed-in on muscle hypertension and trigger points with precision. Her clients often exclaim, “How did you find that spot! I didn’t know it was there.”
Her clients consistently achieve stable healing results resolving tension and pain. She customizes a variety of clinically tested medical massage protocols to address each client’s problem areas.
Lifestyle changes help maintain the relief. Carole's clients enjoy high success making healthy lifestyle changes as she coaches them in how to work the necessary changes into the demands common to everyday life. "It's my job to tell you what you need, it's your job to decide if you want to implement it. If so, I will give you all the support necessary to make it happen. If one way doesn't work for you, we'll find another way," Carole reassures her clients.
Carole Suzanne's experience as a former dancer, certified functional fitness instructor, and college studies in exercise science serve her clients well. It's no wonder they are consistently achieving their goals.
"Scoliosis is my favorite condition to treat. When eligible clients follow the full protocol, their changes are so dramatic. It's a great joy to bring relief to people who have suffered for so many years,” says Ms. Jackson. "According to Dr. Ross, orthopedic surgeon, chiropractor, and expert in clinically tested medical massage techniques, medical massage is the number one non-invasive treatment protocol yielding the best results. When combined with chiropractic spinal adjustments, it’s the perfect marriage for optimal results."
Another condition with few effective treatment options is migraines. Medical massage protocols will completely resolve 80% of all migraine type headaches and greatly improve the remaining

Foot Pain Relieved at Conference On-site
Your therapeutic massage took me from level 9 pain at start of session to level 2 by the end. The next day I worked with no thought of foot pain. I can hardly wait to get your advanced medical massage package. I’m ready to resolve this foot pain completely. ~ Trish Carr, Co-founder WomensProsperityNetwork.com
Old Injuries Relieved -- back, neck, hand
“It’s the gift that keeps on giving. My wife, who is a massage connoisseur, delighted in her massage Christmas gift when back and neck pain she had had longer than 25 years remains gone for going on a year since her treatment. She also regained range of motion in her fingers although the injury was over 10 years old. In addition, many people from our chamber have received relief from chronic pain beyond all expectations.” ~ Mark Goldstein, Central Florida Christian Chamber President, cfchristianchamber.com
Migraine Type Headache & CMPS Relieved
"Before receiving massage, I hurt from head to toe in many places. Carole Suzanne explained that I had trigger points in all four of the major quadrants of my body. Unless the key areas in each quadrant were treated, it could exacerbate the problem and or render the treated areas unable to hold the treatments. That required a two-hour massage with trigger point release techniques. I also needed weekly follow-up one-hour sessions for a couple months or so. Scheduling late-night massages helped me work them into my busy schedule. She also taught me good self-care techniques. Now I’m pain-free for a month or two between treatments. Continuing regular massage every month or so helps me manage long hours working at the computer that is so hard on my body.” ~ Cheri Cowell, freelance writer and speaker, chericowell.com
Plantar Fasciitis Relieved
During my first treatment for plantar fasciitis, I could tolerate light touch only. Carole Suzanne managed trigger point releases at my comfort level. I felt instant relief. By the second treatment, I could receive three times the pressure. I'm amazed that she found trigger points in my calves that affected my feet. I’ve remained free from plantar fasciitis pain since that treatment about a year ago. It’s been incredibly restorative." ~ Charlene Davis, business writer
"I have used massage therapy for years, not only for my fibromyalgia but also for lower back and hip problems. I have used therapists who know what they are doing and those who, when it comes to FM, don't. I can honestly say that Carole Suzanne Jackson's technique did more to help my FM than the others. What amazed me most was not just how good I felt when I left the appointment, but also how much better I felt the following day. When I implemented stretching, as Ms. Jackson suggested, my joints and muscles did wonderful things! I'm not even sure I can explain it. I can only tell you that it felt soooo gooood! And, I've noticed that with her technique, my body stays pain-free longer. I highly recommend Restored by Touch for anyone who has suffered from fibromyalgia."

Drop Foot Relieved
“I’m getting better results from my sessions with you than I did with acupuncture or chiropractic adjustments. My foot was dragging when I walked; it now feels almost normal [after two sessions].
I'm doing the self-care you recommended; that's helping also.”
~ NG, photographer
Severe Headache Relieved

We primarily use clinically tested medical massage protocols advocated by the Science of Massage Institute. This treats all levels of soft tissue such as skin, fascia, muscle, periosteum. It is a very targeted treatment getting to the origin of the pain rather than treating the symptoms alone. Clinicians proficient in this advanced medical massage rank in the top 2 percentile of massage therapists in the United States.
Some of the more commonly known modalities include Swedish, "deep tissue," myofascial release, trigger point therapy, post-isometric relaxation (PIR) stretching, and active isolated stretching. With customized massages, Carole may also incorporate some craniosacral therapy, and/or reflexology. She has advanced training under Aaron Mattes.
