Kate is available for Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, sports and seated massage treatments.

"I spent years working in Special Education. Students seemed to truly appreciate and look forward to time that they spent with their nurses and physical therapists. Touch is an important part of healing. I decided to study to become a massage therapist because not only is it my mission to help others; I also find anatomy fascinating. Through massage I am offered an opportunity to assist people as well as learn something new every day."



Kevin is available for Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, sports and seated massage, as well as all eastern modalities and craniosacral therapy.

"I love seeing positive changes that result from massage therapy, such as helping an elderly client get relief from sciatic nerve pain after three years in order to live pain-free. Or seeing how happy a teacher is when relief from headaches allows her to get back to work. By combining Western and Eastern massage philosophies, I believe it is best to treat the body, mind, and spirit of each person and address all areas in which stress affect us."



LaChanda is available for pretatal massage, Reiki, Swedish, deep tissue, sports and seated massage.

"I have spent more than a decade exploring healing arts from around the globe. I am deeply passionate about creating a sacred space where all who enter can experience a healing of the body, mind and spirit. After training for yoga, I continued my studies to become a licensed massage therapist. Through my work, I find great peace and inspiration by helping others."



Phil is available for Swedish, deep tissue massage and reflexology, as well as eastern modalities and craniosacral therapy.

"I became interested in bodywork and healing through 25 years of involvement in Asian martial arts. I specialize in Chinese tui na, with cupping and gua sha, Japanese shiatsu, kiatsu, and Thai massage. I am also an instructor for the COD Massage Therapy program and teach tai chi and baguazhang here at COD."


Mesha is available for Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, sports and seated massage treatments.

"I have a passion for therapeutic bodywork. I graduated from SpaVargas and hold licenses in both massage therapy and esthetics. Having worked in corporate America in the financial services industry, I can really relate to the ongoing pressures of deadlines, client relations and managing life-work balance. If you would like a mini escape from your everyday demands, see me for a massage!"
