About Pete Broussard
I am Pete Broussard, a multi-disciplined, Licensed Massage Therapist in Louisiana #4331 since 2008. With two offices for your convenience in Metairie and Slidell. I perform predominantly therapeutic massage, which is effective for restoring function, relieving pain, and increasing mobility. I take my time with you so that we achieve results that translate into relief in your body. I love God and I love people, which is why I love what I do, and the reason why, and how, I do what I do very well. In 2005 I was licensed as an EMT and also started Charity Nursing School, then being redirected by Hurricane Katrina, I found my way to work as a Chiropractic Assistant in Slidell, where I was introduced to massage therapy and decided to go to Delta College in Covington at night while continuing to work at the chiropractor’s office. In 2008, I began working at several massage locations and have been gaining experience and developing techniques along the way. I learn new and intuitively effective techniques from studying and also my clients' unique issues. I like to say thanks and pay it forward, by being generous with the gift God has given to me, I pass that along to my clients and have periodically donated my services to worthy causes.
I have a beautiful wife that I enjoy spending time with! I also have developed a love of gardening. I am into physical fitness and work out every day. I also love playing and listening to live music. I have 5 sons and 5 grandchildren, whom I adore.
I look forward to meeting you and hope to help you very soon.
