The Therapists

Leah Herrin

Having a mother who suffered from back and neck issues, Leah learned very fast that sometimes when you are physically hurting it can take a toll on your mental health. Those who find themselves in physical pain may start to become overwhelm and slowly see themselves emotionally drained from all the pain coming from their body. Seeing the way it took a toll on her mother and those around her she then decided to become a massage therapist. Seeing how much better her mother felt after just massaging her neck or back just for a short time she fell in love with the idea of helping others who suffered from physical issues. Leah completed High School early in her junior year and while waiting to just walk down and graduate she went straight to Virginia College in Savannah, GA for Massage Therapy. May of 2016 she graduated High School and then in September 2016 she graduated from College. She then began to start the career that she loves doing.

Danny Vales

Danny is a licensed massage therapist with 20+ years of hands on experience. He gravitates more toward the use of therapeutic pressure rather than traditional Swedish (light touch) or deep tissue ( very heavy). This allows the body to benefit with less soreness and discomfort and a faster recovery. Stay safe, be well, hope to see you soon
