Peter Genetti, NCMT

Nationally Certified Massage Therapist


I am a massage therapist at Life Expression Wellness Center. I received my education from Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2002. I am Pennsylvania State Certified and I have been a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist since 2003.

What I enjoy most about massage is the ability to help others achieve better well-being. The experience can be through a relaxation or therapeutic massage.  I believe that no one should have to live with pain brought on by tight muscles.  It is great for someone to experience the results as stress and pains subside.

While I do relaxation massage. My real passion is therapeutic massage. Therapeutic massage is a more specific work done on a specific area (s) of the body, where there is pain, discomfort, & usually a decrease in range of motion.

As every person is different so is every massage session. Each session is attuned to what your body needs.


Why should you get a massage?

Well there are many reasons, for instance massage helps to reduce stress, muscle tension and stiffness as well as promotes deep relaxation. It helps to alleviate headaches, especially stress headaches caused by tight muscles of the neck and shoulders. Massage helps increase circulation, range of motion, relieves muscle soreness and chronic pain. Massage helps with posture through muscle balancing by loosening contracted / shortened muscles and help strengthen weak ones. For athletes, massage can help decrease your recovery time from fatigue and improve endurance. Feeling sluggish, massage helps to increase blood and lymph circulation, which brings oxygen and nutrients to the cells of your body as well as helping rid them of excess toxins. These are but a few reasons why you should get a massage.

So whether you’re stressed, have tightness and pain that just won’t ease up or if you just want a relaxing massage, Please (come in or) call me here at Life Expression Wellness Center and I would be happy to assist you in achieving your goal in any way that I can.

Thank you and have a great day.
