Thomson graduated from Heritage College in 2003 with an AOS in Massage Therapy. Thomson has gained knowledge in a variety of techniques while his relaxed and professional manner effortlessly put his clients at ease, providing a tranquil atmosphere for his clients.

Philosophy: The body is psychologically programmed to be nurtured when it comes in contact with the world. My philosophy is to reconnect with that.

Mind/Body Balance: I feel that taking care of the body coincides with restoring the mind, therefore I partake in yoga, martial arts, extracurricular sports, weekly exercises and healthy eating. When focusing on the mind itself, I spend my time reading anything that educates me on the human body; including oriental medicine, acupuncture, martial arts, anatomy, psychology and nutrition. I also enjoy daily meditation and prayer to exercise the soul.

Favorite Treatment: The treatment that truly captures my passion the most is Prenatal. I was raised by a single mother and was surrounded by such strong women, which instilled in me the value of a woman especially through pregnancy. Mothers are overworked and under stress through the way the body changes through their pregnancy. I feel it is my duty and privilege to care for a mother knowing that their focus and priority is not for themselves.

MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Daniel completed his training in 2012 at Pinnacle Career Institute. He specializes in deep tissue, deep pressure, Swedish massage, sport massage, reflexology and cranial sacral massage. Daniel’s mission is to promote self-healing for mind and body and to give a healthy alternative to pain medication through massage.

Philosophy: Massage to me is about treating the smallest problem/pain quicker, before people reach for the pills. Having the knowledge to help people in need of healing and relaxation is great!

Mind/Body Balance: In my spare time I like to work out, run, walk, learn something new, bend some rules and spend time with my kids. To keep my head clear I also get massages and boxing, I really like to push my body and get my blood flowing to work the toxins out.

Favorite Treatment: Deep tissue, Swedish massage, sport massage, cranial sacral, reflexology and stretching. I really like doing it all at once during the massage.

DOWE YOUNG

TUESDAY | 9AM — 6PM
THURSDAY | 9AM — 1PM
MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Dowe graduated from the US Career Institute in 2011 studying massage therapy. Passionate about natural healing, she went on to get an associate’s degree in Health Sciences and a bachelor’s in Nutrition/Dietetics. Dowe was so fascinated by the body’s ability to heal itself via holistic modalities that she decided to further her education by gaining a master’s degree in Acupuncture from The Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL. Dowe believes that when given the proper tools to heal and function, the body can reach its fullest potential. This is the mindset she takes into the treatment room to tailor a multi-faceted experience for each client.

Philosophy: Touch is a language. Healing touch such as massage makes the world a better and happier place for all.

Mind/Body Balance: Meditation in outdoor settings, Netflix binges, and anything involving good food, great company, and lots of laughter.

Favorite Treatment: Acupressure and Reflexology. Activating acupoints along the body to assist in its natural healing process is my favorite type of massage therapy and I have seen it truly work wonders. Also, what kind of lives would we live without our feet and hands? They’re easily the most overworked and underappreciated parts of our bodies, therefore need more love too. Once the acupoints are activated people have been relieved from issues such as migraines, digestion, insomnia, chronic stress, etc. which is always a joy to witness and an honor to be a part of.

CHARLI FAINTER

MONDAY | 9AM — 4PM
WEDNESDAY | 9AM — 1PM
SUNDAY | 9AM — 4PM
MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Charli graduated from Wellspring School of Allied Health March of 2018 and spent her first year trying to find her niche as a Massage Therapist. She believes in treating the body as a whole unit, finding the initial reason for the tissue’s discomfort and offering various ways to help rebuild and heal the body from the inside out.

Philosophy: I take an integrative approach to wellness, incorporating a variety of modalities to help the body relax and exit the fight or flight response while removing adhesions in the tissue simultaneously. My specialty is deep tissue via neuromuscular retraining, utilizing trigger point work, stretching, myofascial release and Craniosacral Therapy. I am also trained in Oncology Massage allowing me the absolute honor of working with an individual who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer, safely and ethically.

Mind/Body Balance: Everything in life is about balance. You balance your work and home life. Kids, family, deadlines, extracurriculars, meetings. I like to slow things down a bit, literally. I work low and slow to take you away from the hustle and bustle of everything bugging you. I also think I’m super funny, so hopefully I help your heart feel lighter after you get off my table, too.

Favorite Treatment: Hands down, Craniosacral Therapy. The first day I walked into the seminar I was completely addicted to how the tissue just melted under a nickels’ worth of pressure. I carry that method into my other deep tissue work, and it is such a game changer for my client’s post massage recovery time. Also, there’s a connection that you make with your client when you work with them so gently, yet so deeply – I like to call it “unraveling the onion of the body”. We find the spots of concern and just start unraveling the facial tissues until you get to the root cause of the bodily dysfunctions. I always sprinkle a little Cranio work into my regular massage work and find that my clients are grateful for the extra TLC that it gives.

Philosophy: Every session is an opportunity to help achieve the client’s goals, whether it be letting go of pain, optimizing the body to achieve its highest level of performance, relieving chronic pain or reaching the deepest relaxation state to unite the client’s body, mind and spirit. It brings Jason absolute joy to be a part of this process with his clients. 

Mind/Body Balance: Balance is the key to a harmonious, healthy life. Jason balances his mind, body and spirit through regular meditation, yoga, and having a large circle of family and friends to regularly laugh, love and share life with. Jason is an amateur drummer who enjoys live music and sports. He also loves to travel, hike and kayak; from the mountains to the ocean, he loves to explore and experience the outdoors. 

Favorite Treatment: Therapeutic massage and Reflexology. Our issues are stored in our tissues. Jason listens with his hands and heart to find the issues that need healing. Reflexology accesses the entire body through the feet. Healthy roots blossom the greatest tree.

LICENSED ESTHETICIAN

Mandy graduated from Mitsu Sato Hair Academy in Esthetics in 2019. She specializes in results driven treatments with extractions and tailored services for each individual client. She also likes to make sure her clients are relaxed by incorporating aromatherapy, scalp massages as well as neck and shoulder massages.

Philosophy: I believe that maintaining healthy skin can reduce stress and insecurities. Starting prevention early and keeping a good home care routine, as well as getting regular facials, can reduce the amount of time spent correcting.

Mind/Body Balance: In my free time I enjoy working out, walking my dog and cooking new recipes. I also make sure to get regular facials and massages to keep my mind and body in its optimal state.

Favorite Treatment – My favorite treatment to perform and receive is the Collagen Mask. You can feel and see the benefits of it immediately and it is a great add-on to any service. Anti-aging treatments are so important to start early!

LICENSED ESTHETICIAN

Bridget has been a licensed Esthetician since 2016. She attended Clary Sage college in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she completed their Esthetics program with Honors. Bridget has trained with various professionals around the country that has allowed her to incorporate a style that mixes traditional facial massage and pressure points in conjunction with powerful ingredients to give you not only your best version of your skin but also a relaxed state of mind.

Philosophy: I like to focus on education with skin care and keep up to date with the latest ingredients, treatments and machines so I can deliver the best results to my clients. I believe that preserving youth via facial treatments and lifestyle changes is possible and needles are not always needed. I hope that my clients are happy with the progress they achieve after a treatment with me and that they can attain their best skin yet with continued treatments with me but also a customized, expertise driven home treatment, too.

Mind/Body Balance: We are a soul; we have a body. I believe in energy and caring not just for your body via yoga and proper nutrition but caring for your soul and healing from trauma that is not always known to you. I love to meditate, practice yoga and am a firm believer in the power of journaling. I try to spend time outside enjoying nature or wandering art museums to help my creativity come alive.

Favorite Treatment: My favorite treatment is probably the Vitamin C Facial. I love incorporating modalities such as a sonic spatula to help exfoliate the skin and using Gua Sha to aid in massage. Extractions are essential in my services since that can help with pore size and help managing acne. I also love to incorporate essential oils to help aid in relaxation while in service.
