When Karoline Vaz immigrated to St. Louis from Brazil, she was inundated with local support to help learn English. She vowed to return the favor, but wasn't sure how. The epiphany came while she was receiving a massage: she'd heal the country that had given her so much by becoming a licensed massage therapist. Now in the comfort of her cozy studio, Karoline works alongside her fellow therapist, Tarris. Clients can seek their expertise for a wide variety of therapeutic techniques––sports massage, hot-stone therapy, and deep-tissue pressure to name a few.
