About Chloe Fetrow Therapy

Chloe Fetrow, CLT, LMT, PTA, CRYT

I am a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Certified Registered Yoga Instructor. I spent most of my life involved in athletics, which fostered my love for anatomy and kinesiology. My passion for helping people combined with being a hands-on learner drew me towards the field of massage therapy and holistic medicine.

I studied massage at the National Massage Therapy Institute in 2006. After giving birth to my daughter 2011, I felt a pull to go back to school and further my knowledge in bodywork. I applied for the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Harcum College, was accepted, and in 2014 became licensed. Since then, I have gained experience rehabilitating and treating patients with orthopedic, neurological and cardiopulmonary disorders, dementia and brain injury, cancer, and post-op recovery following many surgical procedures, etc. This piqued my interest in the lymphatic system. 

I became concerned for the growing number of patients who suffered from disabling edema, secondary to various ailments and surgical treatments who had limited avenues for treatment. The more I researched about lymphedema, the more I realized how many people suffer from compromised lymphatic systems and how underrated and misunderstood it is in the medical profession. This prompted me to attain my CLT credentials to help this significant community of people in need of assistance with this treatable, manageable, and often life-long condition.

After completing my certification, it became clear how vital our lymphatic systems are to our health and how Manual Lymph Drainage, alone, can benefit anyone.  Not only is it beneficial for those who suffer from lymphedema, but this technique can be used for an abundance of ailments as well as those primarily seeking relaxation.

I am certified in Complete Decongestive Therapy, specializing in Manual Lymph Drainage (Vodder technique), Oncology and Integrative Massage, and Myofascial Release. My experience in physical therapy and yoga allows me to customize my treatments and adds unique, individualized, and positive dynamics to the healing process. I like to render my clinical experience in a setting that is therapeutic and relaxing. Healing isn’t just about the body, but the mind as well. I understand how draining physical and emotional pain can be, and believe that utilizing multiple therapeutic approaches in a safe and soothing space, is most beneficial to individual healing.

I suffered a low back injury from a car accident when I was in my early twenties, which led me to my self-taught yoga practice. After living in chronic pain at such a young age, I dedicated my time to stretching and various yoga postures, and was pain-free within weeks. Since then, I have continued my practice as a passionate yoga student and received my 200 hour teacher training certification in 2019. My self-healing recovery made me realize that investing in yourself is the key to healthy living. My other passions include traveling, camping, snowboarding, hiking, playing/watching sports, playing my ukulele and piano, seeing live music, and spending time with my family and friends.​​
