    Whether you’re new to massage or been seeing one for a long time I alway encourage open communication and prioritize fostering a safe and comfortable space for all. I tend to incorporate a variety of techniques in each session to best suit the patients preferences and treatment goals. including but not limited to Swedish, deep tissue, cupping/vacuum therapy, myofascial release, PNF stretching and trigger point therapy. Addressing the body as a whole unit working together allows my clients to get the most out of their sessions and address the underlaying issues at hand as well as focus on the area that is feeling the most discomfort. Outside of the treatment rooms I am a compassionate nanny, and lifelong animal lover with 2 kitties and a rescue pup that I absolutely adore!

    Beth is a graduate of East West College of the Healing Arts. With a B.S. in Kinesiology and 4 years experience working in a physical therapy clinic, she gravitates to modalities such as neuromuscular, deep tissue, and Swedish massage. She is driven by her curiosity of how the body works and inspired by human connection. When she’s not relaxing muscles, you can find Beth playing with her cats named Turtle and Chicken or hosting a game night with her wife and friends.

    Romy Schuller (she/her)LMT

    Romy has always loved massage, both giving and receiving. She has experienced many massage modalities, especially when traveling abroad, then later would practice on her friends for fun. Eventually, she changed careers from working with international websites to follow her “calling”. She attended East West College and has been a licensed massage therapist since 2004. She’ll often massage one area while gently moving the corresponding body part to help release tension in the muscles by “untying the knot”. Her style of massage flows smoothly while addressing constricted areas, and she’s always listening to how your body is responding to achieve the best results.

Our goal is to give patients a chance to improve their health.
