Overcoming Adversity to Help Others
Cherron Lampkins refers to herself as a “recovered teen mom” who has battled self-esteem and mental health issues. However, the founder and CEO of The Wellness Lab was inspired by her late grandparents to become a licensed massage therapist (LMT) and advocate for massage therapy.
Now celebrating 16 years in practice, Lampkins has provided therapeutic massage to thousands seeking both physical and mental well-being. Her studio is one of the fastest-growing Black-owned wellness centers in the Washington D.C. area.
Promoting Massage Therapy for the Black Community
As a former HBCU athlete, Lampkins feels massage therapy is a “crucial necessity in the Black community.” She sees it as more than a luxury, highlighting its role in stress reduction, mental health, and addressing physical ailments.
Lampkins notes that “systemic stressors persist” for the Black community. Regular massage aids resilience when facing unique challenges, which is part of her whole-person approach to wellness.
Investing in Overall Health and Self-Care
With her expertise, Lampkins encourages seeing massage therapy as preventative healthcare, not just pampering. Her combination of personalized coaching and expert touch promotes clients’ understanding of self-care.
“In a world where the pace of life seems to quicken each day, Cherron underscores the vital role of massage therapy in promoting overall well-being,” both physically and mentally.
Her massage retreats offer physical and mental rejuvenation from demanding lifestyles.
After over 16 years of supporting thousands on their wellness journeys, Lampkins continues empowering people to invest in their health through therapeutic massage.
