Though they now share an office, massage therapists Shery Vogt-Lamancusa and Aimee Ray traveled down very different paths to get there. When one of her best friends was diagnosed with cancer, Shery stayed beside her and offered nourishment in the form of foot massages; this experience later inspired her to explore a career in healing. Aimee, on the other hand, found her calling at an animal shelter, where she was compelled to help strays recover from their traumas and stress.
At HeartPrints Massage and Wellness, the two combine their talents to treat clients who range from high-performance athletes to the terminally ill. They customize their massage modalities and pats on the back to accommodate each client’s unique problem areas and health conditions. Among the 10 modalities they offer, ashiatsu therapy relies on the therapists' well-trained feet for a deep-tissue massage, and oncology sessions focus on helping clients to battle cancer with gentle, caring strokes.
