Before she launched Bodyworks Massage, Jennifer Snelgrove racked up 900 classroom hours at Georgia Career Institute—that's 400 hours above the state requirement.

They practice modalities that range from long, soothing Swedish strokes to targeted deep-tissue manipulations. Regardless of technique, their bodywork sessions induce a deep sense of tranquility and cause muscles to slacken like carolers after New Year's.
