​​Andrea Case, LMBT joined the Inis staff in 2009  after devoting time to raising her three daughters. Her desire to nurture and help others led her to a career in massage therapy.  In 2009 she graduated with honors from Miller Motte College.  In her time at Inis, she has developed a style incorporating aspects of Swedish, deep tissue, therapeutic, acupressure and myofascial work. Andrea is a certified pre-natal practitioner. She is also a practitioner of Sacred Hawaiian Lomi and Table Thai massage. These have become integral parts of her massage style, bringing a deeper reverence to the treatments and the individual.  Tying these techniques together with long rocking strokes, passive stretching and adding customized essential oils, the massage is tailored to each client's individual needs, whether relaxing and light or invigorating and deep. Andrea loves exploring new modalities to integrate into her work.
