Savanna Bell LMT
I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Tennessee since 2008. I own and operate My Massage World, teach a variety of continuing education classes, and maintain an active practice in which I stay booked about one year in advance. Massage therapy is my passion. I love seeing the look of relief, happiness, and of course the “massage drunk” affect when a client walks out of the treatment room. I love seeing and hearing about the improvement in every day activities that clients experience. And I love to see the light bulb go off on a student’s face when a new concept is introduced in class or they finally get it…whatever it may be to them. And finally, I love helping therapists grow their practice and develop into successful business owners. Seeing the transformation from timid, doubtful, worried newbies to confident, successful professionals means the world to me!
I strive to provide therapeutic bodywork to all my clients while maintaining a relaxing, spa-like experience. I believe the two worlds can work well together. There’s no reason you can’t feel like you’re in a spa while you receive some post-surgical rehab or whatever your body needs! Instead of separating out all the different modalities and techniques I’ve learned over the years, I customize treatments to combine a variety of techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Thai Massage, scar tissue reduction, post-surgical massage and mobility, and many others. I also offer a variety of spa services including facial treatments, body scrubs, and wraps.
I am a wife to an amazing, supportive husband (who happens to be a Physical Therapist, which has helped a lot over the years!), and a mother to a wonderful little 2 year old girl. I enjoy reading, learning as much as possible (I’m a total nerd about massage and the human body), and taking hikes in our local state park with the family and our 2 great danes.
Hello – My name is Sabrina. My enthusiasm is the business part of massage. Yes – I know – most people love the giving of massage. I love witnessing customers receiving massages and watching massage therapists feel wonderful as their customer base grows and their income increases. I am a natural born entrepreneur and the best thing to share with anyone – in my opinion is happiness. I believe massage dramatically increases your happiness and self worth. The more you take care of your self, the more you attract others who respect and care for you. Yes massage is wonderful for health reason, but my passion about massage is for emotional reasons. It changes people. It changed me. I use to be a co dependent person, who allowed unhealthy relationships. When I started receiving massages – my self worth and self love started to change. My moto is “When you love and respect your self, others will do the same” Massage can change the world! Most massage therapists excel at delivering / giving bodywork. Unfortunately, if you are one of the best therapists in the world, but no one knows your business exists, you can not deliver nor get paid for your gifts/skills. I love to bridge the customers with the therapists. Your success literally is my success.

Jennifer Hendrickson, LMT/Reiki PractitionerI am a solo Massage Practitioner. I graduated from Central Mass School of Massage Therapy in Spencer, MA and a member of ABMP. I was trained in Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and have furthered my education to become certified in Prenatal Massage, Traditional Table Thai Yoga Massage, Reiki and Cranial sacral Therapy. I also take pride in being a partner with Hands for Heroes to help take care of our veterans that have fought for us. My goal as a Massage therapist is to make people feel better by relaxing the mind and physical body through my work. Since day one, my vision has been to provide my clients with the very best experience in therapeutic massage. I choose to go into this field to help people by relaxing their body and mind. I have found that there is no better feeling than seeing the relaxed and happy face on a client I have helped. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist for almost 3 years; I have worked in a High End Day Spa, Wellness center and with a Chiropractor. I found that although it was great exposure and experience I needed to have my own practice. I have had my private practice for 1 year now and this is where I was meant to be.
Jess BoutonI have been practicing for almost 8 years now. I graduated from Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, NY December of 2007. I started practicing as soon as I got my license. I had to take a year off, because I had dislocated my shoulder and it wasn’t healing right. I specialize in Sports/Injury, Chronic pain, Myofascial release, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular therapy and deep tissue. Over the winter, I will be studying Cranial Sacral massage and adding it to my practice. I have done bamboo, Thai poultice, body scrub and wraps in the past and am currently adding them to my practice as well. I have always loved teaching, guiding and sharing experiences with fellow therapists and I think this will be a great program. I am always learning and always up for trying something new. Seeing something from someone else’s perspective adds to your education, it’s not always in the field. I’ve been just about everywhere. I used to work on Princess Cruises as a massage therapist under Steiner as well.
Lorraine M. Ross LMT BCTMBWhere do you have hurt? How can I help you? Those are the questions that I will ask my clients. I sincerely want to know where your aches and pains are and how can I help improve your quality of life. My customized blend of massage/bodywork and intuition will address the key issues of tension and pain while relaxing the mind and body. In the 7 years of practice and education I am grateful for the opportunity to work one on one with people in a safe and healing environment. Massage Therapy may be the treatment you need to reduce pain and increase range of movement. This will allow you to get back on the golf course, tennis court or playing with grandchildren. I want that for you. I have achieved National Board Certification in Massage. My initial education was a 990 hour Massage therapy program that included in-depth anatomy and physiology study. Therapeutic massage education is a passion of mine. I have added over 15 hours of continuing education annually.

Jessica (Jes) KingHi there! My name is Jes and I have been practicing massage therapy since 2005 and running my own practice since 2007. I have always used custom blended sessions to help people heal mentally and physically. I offer massage therapy (trained in 22 modalaties), Reiki level II practitioner and am one of two MT’s in Utah who is a certified auto accident specialist. In 2012 I started to mentor local therapists out of my office and this last year through a local FB page I set up. I learned the way of business operations, marketing skills and client retention the hard knock way (funny how when I worked for doctors and other massage clinics no one trains therapists on basic skills like client retention!) and looking back I wish I had a trusted mentor to talk with and learn from (the mentors I reched out to were too focused on themselves and didn’t really care to share the knowledge and wisdom they had). I know a LOT of things would have gone smoother for me. So, here I am ready to share the knowledge and wisdom I have learned over the last 10+ years to anyone who wants it. I am also one who admits when I don’t have an answer… but I will help seek one out when that happens. I look forward to working with you!
Sandy Ventura GordonHaving been a Massage Therapist since 1985 I have had the opportunity to learn through many challenges as well as by experience and with other seasoned Massage Therapists. Learning is continual and never ends. Education and sharing information is my passion! I love to see others succeed and it is through education and learning that can reveal the splendors and gems that lie hidden in each person.
I teach certification programs and provide CE Credit classes and have been approved by NCBTMB since 1997. We have all been endowed with talents and faculties that are needed in this world, for our clients, and the massage profession. I’m just one of many wonderful Therapists and I love to mentor other Massage Therapists, joining hands to change lives, families, and the world.
