About Us

Tim Hackett, LMBT, NC License #3012

Mr. Hackett is a Certified Massage Therapist specializing in NeuroMuscular Reprogramming, a comprehensive technique predicated on specific muscle testing. The NMR protocol allows him to identify muscles that are either weak or inhibited by other muscles or groups that cause imbalance, impairment, restricted motion and often chronic pain. Drawing on 6 years of private practice, Tim is able to correct these imbalances through extensive work with Sports Massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point and Swedish all with the primary focus on increasing healthy and pain-free movement in the affected area. His private practice includes many local athletes from fun runners to competitive ultra marathoners and tri-athletes. In addition, Tim has worked at the Duke Diet and Fitness Center for nearly 3 years. Tim is also a Certified Personal Trainer where he focuses on increasing not only strength in his clients, but flexibility, full range of motion and a life long love of exercise. SPECIALTIES: Integrative Bodywork and Neuromuscular Reprogramming, Trigger Point Therapy

Since graduating from Medical Arts Massage School in 2002, Tim has been owner and sole proprietor of Healing Hands Massage Therapy. After 6 months in a chiropractor’s office, Tim moved his business to Gold’s Gym, which became Beyond Fitness then Peak Fitness, on Creedmoor Road in North Raleigh. After 4 and ½ years in that gym, Tim moved the business to his new home off of Leesville Road in North West Raleigh. Healing Hands Massage Therapy is a successful business because of Tim's continued and creative marketing and the development of professional relationships with the medical and alternative health community, including chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths and yoga instructors.
