It isn't every day that a licensed massage therapist gets to work during a rock concert. Jasmine McKenzie had just that opportunity when she gave much-needed kneads to performing artists and crew members at the Rock on the Range music festival. She's also accustomed to the refined ambiance at the Scioto Country Club, where she previously practiced techniques ranging from deep-tissue and hot-stone massage to neuromuscular therapy and pregnancy massage.
Between her experience and education?a bachelor's degree in health and wellness and training at the Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage?Jasmine's talents have brought her many unique client experiences. Now at her own practice, she continues to wield her massage talents against ailments such as back pain and injuries caused by athletic exertion or fist bumps that have gone horribly wrong.

At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.
