Martha Iglehart has had a private massage practice since 2005 after completing training at Austin Community College. A longtime interest in the healing arts led her to study Reiki, an ancient Japanese healing technique. She became a Reiki Master in 2003. Her style of massage includes a blend of Swedish massage and Reiki. She has been a member of the Prayer and Healing Ministry at Unity Church of Austin since 2002, and has been its leader since 2006.
Her interest in Oncology Massage began after her mother died of cancer in January 2014. She attended and completed MD Anderson’s Integrative Oncology Training Conference several months later and decided to devote her massage work to helping people with cancer.
She is a member of Associated Bodywork Massage Professionals, Oncology Massage Alliance (support therapist) and Society of Oncology Massage. She is a published author and accomplished communicator with more than 34 years in the media. She is currently employed by Crista Media’s KFMK-SPiRiT 1059.
She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of North Texas in 1976.
