For nationally certified massage therapist Missy Hammond, massage isn’t just therapy for her clients, it’s therapy for her, too. “I enjoy helping people feel better… I am all for a healthy mind, spirit, and body,” she says. With this enthusiasm and the knowledge gained from attendance at Body Therapy Institute in Siler City, Hammond alleviates pain and increases circulation through a variety of massage modalities or exfoliates away dead skin cells with a body polish. During treatments, she keeps clients comfortable atop a cushioned, heated massage table inside a dimly lit room with soft music, a relaxing waterfall, and a miniature whale that coos haikus.
