A certified massage therapist, Jamie Faria performs multiple modalities and services designed to heal and detox the body. Jamie’s relaxation massages soothe muscles, while athletic and deep-tissue massages can more easily target specific issues and improve the body’s future performance, be it in playing football or running from a ref who claims massage tables don’t belong on a football field. Alternatively, she also offers spray-tanning services as well as detox body wraps and ear-candling sessions, which use aromatic lavender candles.
Of the 12 music teachers at Barker's Music, most have taught there for more than 18 years. So all of the instructors have plenty of experience teaching their chosen instrument.

But the staff members also demonstrate their musical expertise in other ways, including tuning pianos and repairing guitars. And party hosts can call upon the Kyle Barker Band, which plays events ranging from birthdays to going-away parties for your noise-sensitive neighbors.
