Our Team

Our Wellness Program practitioners offer exercise instruction and ergonomic coaching to complement each chair massage session. With every visit, they are committed to your ongoing, long-term health. The Practitioner’s approach is simple: providing tools for self-care, and wellness through massage. We believe everyone needs an advocate for their health and well-being, and that’s who they are for you!
