Licensed massage therapist Jo Ann specializes in therapeutic massage disciplines such as deep-tissue, neuromuscular, sports, and trigger point. But she also performs more relaxing treatments including Swedish massage, reflexology, prenatal massage, and aromatherapy. She works her magic at Chirocare Wellness Center—a practice that champions the use of natural alternative treatments—alongside chiropractor Dr. Bijian Siadati, who treats pain and discomfort through spinal adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, and cold-laser therapy.
When Jen Hibbard opened Santè Massage in 2011, she saw it almost as a wellness studio—a place where clients could come to improve their overall health, not just as a place where massage was a luxury. The therapist, who often blogs about improving her own health, reduces chronic pain and tension with everything from deep-tissue and therapeutic massages to hot-stone and prenatal massages.
Jen learned her techniques at Heritage College, where she obtained an associate's degree in therapeutic massage and occupational studies. Jen emerged from the 1,200-hour state-accredited program with knowledge in a number of fields, including anatomy and physiology, Chinese medicine, and school-mascot massages.
