About Gretchen

My name is Gretchen Sumpter Irwin. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Bodyworker in Joplin, Missouri.

My career began in 1991 after completing massage training at Harbin Hot Springs School of Shiatsu and Massage in Middleton, California. My most recent completed course of study was a six hundred hour course at Orler School of Massage Therapy Technology in Joplin, Missouri in 2009.

I am a member of the National Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworkers, as well as a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. My Missouri license number is 2010001768.

I am certified in Swedish Esalen Massage, Deep Tissue, Prenatal Massage, Geriatric Massage, Infant Massage, Sports Massage, Reflexology and Chair Massage.

My sense of adventure and love of nature landed me in Alaska, where I resided until 2005. I returned to the Joplin area in 2006 to be closer to family after surviving breast cancer. My life experiences have enriched my well being and my sense of compassion.

I strongly believe in the benefits of massage therapy and bodywork. It is my intention to provide you with a restoring experience that will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated allowing you to feel better in body, mind and spirit.
