Mandi Parker, Owner
A transplant from Chicago, IL, Mandi has lived in Franklin, TN since 1985. After graduating from Franklin High School, she studied elementary education at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY, but quickly realized that teaching children was not her life’s passion.
Mandi graduated from the Institute of Therapeutic Massage and Movement (now Mind Body Institute, LLC) in September 2004 and was licensed that December. Since gaining her licensure, she has provided massage in a variety of settings including spas, a chiropractor’s office, private residences, corporations, convention centres and independent massage establishments.
Since learning the basics of chair massage while in school, Mandi has taken various continuing education classes in the subject as well as doing independent study in the form of reading and watching videos about the topic. Since 2012, she has taught an Intro to Chair Massage continuing education for licensed therapists who wish to enhance their understanding of the modality.
After a decade of providing chair massage to companies in the Middle Tennessee area, Mandi founded Tennessee Chair Massage. The company’s focus is to provide relaxation for office workers who may otherwise may not be able to receive massage due to financial or schedule conflicts. The company also strives to hire therapists who live and work in Tennessee.
Mandi lives in Franklin, TN with her husband, Robert, and their two dogs, Brisco and Ash.
