Salette Schlee has always been fascinated by the mechanics of the human body. Now she’s working as a massage therapist at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village and a salon in Frontenac, and applying all she’s learned to help her patients relieve pain and live life to the fullest.
Salette started her college career at Fort Scott Community College where she played volleyball, received her Associates of Science and enjoyed being an ambassador for the school. She loved Fort Scott and being involved in the community, but she wanted to learn more about the human body and how to improve back functioning.
In 2012, she attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis where she studied towards her Bachelor of Science. Salette received her massage therapy degree from Missouri College where she volunteered at the Siteman Cancer Center. This allowed her to learn more about disease and how it relates to our body movements.
Salette became licensed by the MBLEX (Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination) which is the newest form of testing for massage therapists. It serves the massage therapy and regulatory communities as the national entry level licensure examination. She also is an active member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), which is the largest non-profit, professional association serving massage therapists, massage students and massage schools. It is the most trusted and respected name in massage therapy.
Salette specializes in deep tissue and trigger point release therapy. Other modalities she uses include Swedish, geriatric, myofascial release, reflexology, prenatal, injury rehabilitation, hot stone massage and more.
She founded Knock Out Massage Therapy in 2015, and practices at the Platinum Salon, 521 S. Cayuga, Frontenac. Salette loved Fort Scott and always hoped she might return to this community one day.
When the massage therapy location at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village opened up, she was able to make her dream a reality. The Presbyterian Village location seemed to be the perfect fit, as it is open to the public 24 hours/day, it has great access, it is clean and very comfortable to offer a nice space for people to relax to make the massage more beneficial while in their session. Additionally, it provides Salette with the ability to increase her days and hours as needed to serve her clients in this area.
Currently, Salette takes clients by appointment at the Frontenac location on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and at the Fort Scott location on Wednesdays. Saturdays are by appointment only as clients need at either location.
New clients can take advantage of the introductory full body massage rate and they can also save with the “refer a friend” system, receiving $10 off any service for each friend that names the “friend” on their intake form.
Packages for 30-minute, 60-minute, 90-minute and 2-hour massage therapy sessions are available, as well as gift certificates.
Salette is excited to be back in the Fort Scott community and is looking forward to providing professional massage therapy treatment to the community.
