Introduction to Infinite Touch - Part 1: Who We Are

Welcome to Infinite Touch Integrative Therapies, LLC!

Infinite Touch is a manual therapy office at the Lake of the Ozarks, specializing in CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, SomatoEmotional Release, Massage Therapy, and more. In this preliminary blog post, we are excited to introduce you to ourselves and our business. In our next post, we will continue the introduction by discussing the work that we do.

Who We Are

Infinite Touch Integrative Therapies, LLC is co-owned by my husband, Darin Puppel, and me, Bailey Puppel. Darin has been practicing bodywork for several years and has been the primary therapist at Infinite Touch since we opened our doors in February of 2017. I recently made a career switch so that I could dedicate my time to helping grow our new family business. 

Darin Puppel

Darin Puppel, BCTMB, CST
Founder & Therapist
Darin is a Board Certified Massage Therapist by the NCBTMB, which is the highest certification for a massage therapist in the U.S. He is also Technique Certified by the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral therapy, and is currently pursuing the higher certification of Diplomate.

Darin graduated with honors from the Massage Therapist & Health Educator program at the National Holistic Institute in Studio City, California. While enrolled in the program, he tutored fellow students, led study groups, and volunteered for a number of local events. He completed an internship at Brooks Therapeutic Massage (awarded "Best Massage in Los Angeles" during the 2008 City Search) and took a full-time position there after graduation. He moved back to Missouri in March of 2011, where he began a private practice based out of the Lime in the Coconut Specialty Compounding Pharmacy. In February of 2017, he opened Infinite Touch Integrative Therapies, LLC.

Darin has been an active member of the American Massage Therapy Association and the International Alliance of Healthcare Practitioners since 2011. He has also been actively involved in continuing education, taking numerous classes since 2011 and serving as an Teaching Assistant for the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators and the Upledger Institute since 2014.

Bailey Puppel

Bailey Puppel
I graduated summa cum laude from William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri, where I earned a B.A. in Communications and a Minor in Theatre. Upon graduating in 2014, I took a full-time position as a Social Media Coordinator at MSW Interactive Designs, LLC and was promoted to Internet Marketing Specialist in my second year with the company. 

I met Darin shortly after he had completed his first continuing education course in CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute. As Darin advanced through the curriculum, I learned a great deal from him about the healing power of this gentle therapy. In my spare time, I began educating myself on various Cranial techniques, and I found myself becoming increasingly drawn to the therapy. In June of 2017, I officially made the career switch to join my husband in our family business. 

I am currently devoting my efforts to marketing, scheduling, and various administrative responsibilities while I train to become a therapist. I should be licensed to take appointments by fall of 2018.

Darin and I live in Lake Ozark, Missouri. Last year, we welcomed our first child into the world: a little boy named Shiloh. (If you follow Infinite Touch on Facebook, you've probably seen several pictures of Shiloh already!) We are an active family - we enjoy traveling, hiking, kayaking, camping, paddle boarding, and anything else that gives us an excuse to be outside. We both have serious soft spots for all animals and run a high risk of having a small menagerie someday, but for now we're limiting ourselves to a spirited tabby cat named Jace and two adorable miniature dachshunds named Carla and Lizzy.

What We Do

Our next blog post will focus in-depth on the different therapies we offer, the various conditions we can help treat, and our overarching healing philosophy. For now, suffice it to say that we believe that the body possesses an innate wisdom with the capacity to self-heal. Each of our manual therapies at the Lake of the Ozarks is centered around this core principle. 

Watch for our next blog post to learn more about our professional services. You can also visit our website at to get a description of the different types of therapies we offer and some examples of useful applications for them.
