Thank you for visiting our website. I graduated from the National Institute of Massotherapy and have been licensed through the State Medical Board of Ohio as a massage therapist since January 2009. I first started my career as a self-employed therapist and then in 2010 to 2011 worked at Carol Martin Salon Spa here in Tallmadge. I then worked full-time for Summa Hospice from 2012 to 2021 where I helped patients with pain management, relaxation, edema (swelling), anxiety, and also helped increase comfort in their final days/hours. I loved working in hospice care and it was a rewarding position for me; but, it was time to pass the baton to someone else. I also worked with M3 Massotherapy in Tallmadge, Restorative Massage & Wellness Center in Cuyahoga Falls, and Vivify Wellness in Fairlawn before deciding to start my own business.
My goal is to help the community and surrounding areas to have a place where they can come specifically for pain relief and stress reduction without a high cost and to be a place of care. Our 1-hour rate is $90 and we are a non-tipping center. Many businesses have a 1-hour rate of $75 to $125 and accept/expect tipping. Most establishments accept tipping, which may not be affordable for those that need regular massage appointments for pain management or stress reduction. We are all feeling the physical, emotional and financial impact of inflation and therefore, we should try to help each other. Some individuals are taking daily medication for relief that could be provided through a few regular massage therapy appointments. Being a non-tipping center removes the pressure a client feels to afford a tip, puts massage therapy back in the medical realm, and allows the therapists not to feel their value is based on the amount of the tip. A customer can expect to pay the same rate every visit and that is predictable on a budget.
