For the licensed massage therapist and yoga instructor known as Shanti, massage and yoga are essential to achieving inner wellness. Indeed, she dedicates much of her practice, Just Breathe Massage and Skin Care, to these two philosophies. In her candle-lit studio, Shanti eases tension and pain from her clients through seven massage modalities. These include Swe-Thai therapy, which combines principles of Western massage and Eastern yogic stretching, and warm bamboo massage, which incorporates heated, oiled bamboo canes to help the spa's resident panda fall asleep each night. Additionally, Shanti uses Eminence Pure Organic products to perform custom organic fruit and vegetable facials, as well as other skin-care treatments.
As evidenced by the East-meets-West principles of many of her services, Shanti has traveled to earn her training. She studied massage at schools in Thailand, the United States, and Canada, and returned to Florida to hone her skin-care skills. In addition to her massage expertise, she's also a certified Inspired Anusara yoga teacher.
A master of multiple massage modalities, Renee Keene helps banish stress and alleviate muscle pain. Soft music suffuses the intimate treatment room as soon as guests arrive, definitively separating visits from noisy lives living near construction or judging amateur yodeling contests in the evening. Once her clients are ready on the massage table, Keene addresses their particular need with such styles as relaxing Swedish massage and injury-healing sports massage. More specialized modalities include the rhythmic, Polynesian lomilomi massage and reiki, which helps heal bodies with focused energy flow.

The practitioners of Lema's Massage Therapy work to give every visitor a relaxing, restorative escape from everyday life.
