Gwen of All Trades
Gwen Sinclair always had the calling to help people. Her father had bounced back from severe back surgery in a matter of weeks and attributed his speedy recovery to the healing power found in his twice-monthly massage. That sealed the deal for Sinclair; after completing massage-therapy school, she opened Gwen of All Trades.
As their treatments begin in this cozy 110 year-old renovated house, massage clients settle into a plush leather chair while Sinclair consults with them about their treatment goals. She keeps a careful eye on clients as she administers a variety of massage strokes, watching for breathing patterns that tell her whether she's gone too far or whether they are reciting lines from South Pacific under their breath.
Above all else, Gwen comes to work in search of more success stories. Her favorite involves a client who exited the treatment room post-session by hopping on one foot. When Sinclair questioned her gait, the client gave a triumphant smile before telling her that, before the massage, she wasn't able to put pressure on that foot! Her limp banished, the client is now a massage true believer and continues to hops into and out of Sinclair's treatment room once a month.
