Dedicated bodywork expert Julia Groome Allred heads Calming Ground’s staff of six certified therapists, who each employ expertise in assorted massage modalities to engineer customized treatments around clients’ needs. The team calms minds and dissolves tension with such diverse techniques as oncology massage, reiki, and reflexology, and frequently de-stresses champion badminton partners during couples’ massages. Each service assuages aches amid the idyllic environs of The Groome Inn, a 1900s farmhouse turned elegant bed and breakfast nestled on eight acres of lush woods, native North Carolina vegetation, and singing birds that happily field song requests. To further cultivate relaxation, Calming Ground clients can decamp to one of The Groome Inn’s four suites for a nap or catered basket lunch.
