A healthy mind and body
starts with self care.
Make time for YOU today.
Thank you for visiting! Welcome to A Knead for Wellness, Massage Therapy where massage is good for the mind & body AND entirely customizable depending on whether you are in need of a Swedish massage for relaxation or a deeper tissue massage for helping with pain relief.
Your Personalized Experience
I am Tiffany, solo LMT #13585 at A Knead for Wellness, Massage Therapy. Have you ever been to a spa, had the most wonderful massage only to lose your favorite massage therapist forever? Look no further. When you call, text or book, you will deal with me directly. I love creating a sense of peace and calm for my clients. If you need to slow down, you've found the place. One or two high quality essential oils and a couple hot stones are lovely complimentary additions to the scalp and back portion of every massage I provide. I offer a wide array of tools to help YOU relax. If you are needing a deep tissue massage I absolutely can help with that too and not every visit will be the same because some days you may have a stubborn "knot" while other days you'd simply like a firm, relaxing Swedish. Often you may enjoy a combo (relaxing + deep pressure). Visit my cozy, private suite in Franklin - Cool Springs, located in Salons by JC (a classy-chic hub where I share walls with other friendly and talented wellness and beauty professionals). A Knead for Wellness is located in Suite 50. Or enjoy a couples/friends massage (back to back) at your home or office. More info as your read further...

Spa Room Ambiance
You'll find that the AKFW suite, located in Franklin - Cool Springs at
615 Bakers Bridge Ave., Ste 50, is a quaint, adorable space with an elegant farmhouse vibe. Upon entering the space you'll immediately feel relaxed. Even if you mostly need deep tissue work, you will be able to completely destress.
All sessions are by appointment only (no walk-ins). Online booking is for in-spa suite appointments only. Please text/call to make an appointment for home/office massage (offered around McKay's Mill or neighborhoods around Clovercroft Road and some other areas of Franklin & some areas of Brentwood within 4 miles of my suite). As for in-spa suite appointments, please don't knock on the door as I'll more than likely be in session. Online booking is available up to 5 days out. If you'd like to make an appointment six or more days out from the day you are planning, please text/call me to inquire about available appointments and if I am with a client or away I will get back with you as soon as possible. Disregard calendar view after five days as I update it daily or every few days, depending on all appointments, including those not displayed on the calendar. Online booking is there for your more immediate convenient booking.
Couples & Home/Office Table/Chair Massage
In addition to in-spa suite massage I provide home & office massage for convenience, family gatherings, employee appreciation & special occasions in some areas of Franklin & Brentwood, TN. McKay's Mill or or neighborhoods around Clovercroft Road, I offer 1 hour at home massages for $125. Starting cost is $250 for 2 hours outside of McKay's Mill & surrounding neighborhoods.

Once booked, note that I do not currently charge for cancellations and understand when rescheduling is needed. If you are sick or have a cold, please reschedule asap so that germs aren't spread to other clients.

Additional info about your LMT, Tiffany
An all-things-luxury spa enthusiast, I have worked at a few of most popular local, high end spas in Lakewood Ranch, FL and the exquisitely beautiful, tranquil Woodhouse Day Spa in Nashville, TN. I love and strongly believe that essential oils significantly help you relax, so during your session I'll include at least one at no additional charge.
My repeat clients typically visit me once or twice per month as part of their wellness maintenance regimen. Some days they may request a calming massage, while other days they may ask that I work on a specific muscular issue. Many call on me for headache/sinus relief and others enjoy hot stones with aromatherapy to more deeply relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life for a bit. As mentioned, prior to my career as a massage therapist I worked in a fast paced career including medical, fitness & copier sales. I, too, often turned to massage therapy to help reduce stress or relieve a stubborn knot. I've also suffered menstrual headaches so I am especially drawn to helping others with their headache pain.
I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and a graduate of Sarasota School of Massage Therapy's 800 hour program. Although FL & TN require 500 hours to achieve state licensing, SSMT adds 300 additional hours to their curriculum for more detailed learning. I continue to read and learn as there is so much to know within massage and wellness. I am a (non-practicing) certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (since 2015) and attended Yoga teacher training for fun and a deeper understanding of myself, as at the time, I was dealing with some inner turmoil. As you may have gathered thus far, I believe wellness (fitness, whole foods, massage...) is the best form of medicine and I am so happy that I get the opportunity to help you relax and just.... breathe.
In my spare time, I enjoy healthy cooking, yoga, kickboxing, good old fashioned weight training, massage (of course) and spending time with family and friends.

Benefits of Massage Therapy
It may help with
Research has shown meditation and activities like getting a massage can lower heart rate and blood pressure. Serotonin and dopamine are also released, resulting in a feeling of peaceful, calm relaxation.
Muscle Soreness Relief
Assisted stretch or massage after vigorous exercise reduces pain and helps muscles recover. Massage also increases and improves circulation and eases inflammation.
Meditation, deep breathing with essential oils and massage relaxes muscles, relieves muscle spasms, improves blood flow and aids in relaxation, which can be helpful for relieving the pain of tension and vascular headaches.
Muscle Tension Release
Sitting at a desk all day can result in a tense neck and shoulders. Stretching and massage increases and improves circulation, which in turn, helps relieve muscle tension.
Meditation, stretching and Swedish massage are relaxing. Add aromatherapy and instant peacefulness is the result.
Relaxed and stretched muscles result in increased flexibility. Muscles that were originally tight and tense improve as flexibility improves.
