Who are you?
I am Philomena Herrick, and I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Maine, where I grew up. I very much enjoy working with people to help them reach their highest healing potential through the application of massage.
How long have you worked here?
I started working at South Portland Chiropractic & Massage Center in April of 2016.
What you enjoy most about working here?
I really enjoy how everyone here treats each other with respect, and they treat the clients and patients like family.
What are some of your hobbies? What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
I am a health nerd, and I enjoy reading about holistic health and finding new and improved ways to alternative healing. I also enjoy hiking, working out at the gym, sailing and being with friends and family.
What is your background (education or work\job experience)?
I first began working as a licensed massage therapist in 2004. I have an Associate’s degree and am trained as a Dietetic Technician. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Wellness. I have utilized my education and training by leading seminars and lectures with small businesses. I also work with agencies who support the handicapped.
What kind of symptoms or injuries do you enjoy working with most?
There really isn’t any one particular symptom or injury that I most like working with. I really enjoy the diversity I get when I work with all types of clients. This enhances my learning abilities so that I can be the best I can be with my work.
Why do I think people should come here for treatment? What makes this place special?
There are a couple of answers to this question. First, I feel that Dr. Smart is an excellent chiropractor, and he is very in tune with his patients. Secondly, all the people working at this office treat everyone like family, and they give 100 percent all the time to make our patients feel comfortable and welcomed.
Come and experience your highest healing potential. I don’t think you will be disappointed—we all give our very best.
