Courtney J. Huell


Massage & Bodywork Therapist

FOCUS: Acute and Chronic Pain • Myofascial Adhesions • Relaxation and Stress Management

Courtney is the owner of Route Wellness, LLC and has been a licensed massage and bodywork therapist since 2006. Her work is rooted in clinical neuromuscular therapy which is based on the identification of muscular imbalances and postural distortions. These are often sources of chronic pain and overstimulation of the nervous system and when corrected through manual therapy can help a person release tension and regain function. Over many years of practice, Courtney’s work has become an integration of a variety of massage modalities including myofascial release, Swedish massage, and deep tissue techniques to create a personalized experience for each client that is both therapeutic and deeply relaxing. She has advanced training in oncology massage and is proficient in traditional Thai massage, prenatal massage, and massage for burn scars. While she understands the benefits of massage therapy, Courtney also recognizes its limitations and is a strong advocate for an integrative approach to care.

Several years after completing her B.A. degree in History and Sociology, Courtney began cultivating her interest in integrative and holistic health. She attended a residential fitness training program on Maui in the summer of 2001 where she was introduced to concepts of mindfulness, holistic healing, and somatics. Curiosity about manual therapy led her to study massage at Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy. She has since earned two master’s degrees, one in Public Health and the other in Holistic Nutrition, and has become a certified integrative nutrition health coach. She has plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine.

Outside of massage therapy Courtney enjoys making handcrafted skincare products and cooking. She has a large collection of recipes, is not afraid to experiment with new or tried and true ingredients, and will happily cook for people who like to eat.
