Many are familiar with the saying "Love what you do and do what you love," but few actually live it. When Missy Steed discovered massage therapy, she finally found the thing that made her truly happy: making others happy. A graduate of the Dayton School of Medical Massage, Missy is well versed in most of the classic treatments, including relaxation, deep-tissue, and cold-stone massage. Additionally, she is also a certified infant massage instructor who leads classes that teach parents how to pamper their little ones at home. These classes, and the subsequent treatments lavished upon the lucky kids, can have numerous benefits. They promote bonding between parents and children and also relax infants after a long day of refusing to eat or arguing with the cat about whose tiny sweater is cuter.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We set achievable goals together. I am here to encourage, motivate, and hold you accountable.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
If you don't want to pay for personal training, but are tired of the large groups with no real access to the trainer, then small-group training is for you. Get up to four of your friends to join you for fitness classes. If you don't have a full group, you can join an existing group and meet some new people.
