As a Gulf War veteran and Air Force reservist, Rene' Johnson knows stress better than most. She draws on this experience, as well as a comprehensive education in anatomy to rewire the body's circuitry and promote wellness. Though her specialties are in orthopedic, sports, and rehabilitative massage, deep-tissue and Swedish techniques are also available to promote relaxation. When not mending muscles, Rene' enjoys travel, spending time with friends and family, and massaging knots out of low-hanging tree limbs.
Tabitha Stubbs never expected to find her calling in massage therapy. She started as a complete novice, but as she became versed in the practice, she discovered that massage was her true passion. Now a certified massage therapist, Tabitha loves to work with her hands, letting the healing powers of massage flow through her in the same way that basketball strategy courses through Stan Van Gundy. To address her clients’ varying therapeutic needs, Tabitha offers a variety of massage-therapy services, including deep-tissue, reflexology, sports, and prenatal massage.
Most people wouldn’t associate the military with relaxation, and neither does former army man Jason Fells. During his six-year stint in the employ of Uncle Sam, he dreamed of dedicating himself to healing. Today, with characteristic discipline and precision, he soothes bodies through massage, clears up complexions with LED light therapy, and tightens elasticity with anti-aging facial massages. When he's not redirecting chi through reiki, he redistributes calories as a personal trainer and tries to understand the jumping jack's deep-seated resentment toward jump ropes as an exercise psychologist.

Massage therapists' deft hands ease relaxation into bodies via a range of modalities that help melt physical and emotional stress, detoxify the body, and diminish aches. The team at the studio strives to uproot embedded pain during massages and may recruit the soothing powers of hot stones to further assuage tension. To augment massages' therapeutic effects, they administer treatments such as hydrating scrubs, body wraps, and raindrop therapy?a noninvasive bodywork technique that harnesses aromatherapy to guide energy back into balance.
