A healthy mind and body
starts with self care.
All else follows.
Hello... my name is Tiffany Scarpelli,
Licensed Massage Therapist serving Franklin & Brentwood, TN.
I offer mobile massage for individuals and staff in the home or office. If you are an existing client, you can call me to book. Online booking for existing clients is coming soon.
If you are a new client, let's schedule a phone or virtual consultation. Scroll down to check out testimonials about my massage style.
If you are planning an event and would like to add chair massage to the mix, please, contact me.
A little about me... 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 to prepare LMT's like me to better serve our clients.
Prior to practicing massage therapy in TN, I practiced in FL (FL LMT MA93180 & TN LMT 13585). I've worked the "8 to 5++" in So CA & FL so I understand workplace stress and I'm here to help. Deep Tissue is my forte and I often add a unique blend of Swedish/Relaxation to each session, depending on what my client needs. I include hot stones and the highest quality essential oils (by Young Living) to most mobile sessions. I've worked at a few popular local spas in Lakewood Ranch, FL (Four Pillars and Sirius Day Spa) and currently work part time at the exquisitely beautiful, tranquil Woodhouse Day Spa in Nashville. In addition to loving my work as a LMT, I'm NASM certified and I enjoy paper crafting and beautifying this website. Hope you love all the crazy colors and backgrounds! As an appreciated client, you will receive adorable greeting cards and homemade, crafty tokens of appreciation.
What is a "Knead" for Wellness?
There are many dimensions of wellness.
Massage Therapy is one of my favorites because it helps reduce stress and relieve pain, two common complaints in most of our lives!
A Knead for Wellness is my slowly growing "baby". After years of a career primarily in sales, I searched for a calmer path that would allow me to slow down and help others do the same. In a nut shell, I do this through the power of touch. My little biz is part of the overall "knead" for wellness.
My passion has long been fitness. My obsession began as a teenager and, as an adult, it's largely how I dealt with workplace stress, in addition to massage therapy. I enjoy a wide variety of fitness activities including yoga, kickboxing, weight training, dance, HIIT, walking and jogging. After a long day of the sales grind, I'd run to the gym or outdoors to workout. With a multitude of benefits also came lots of knots and more tension and massage visits became the norm!!
If you work at a desk all day, work out of your car or are a fitness junkie, I've got your back!
In addition to massage therapy, I help with fitness beginner plans for woman. I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). If this is of interest to you, fill out the contact form on this site and send me a note or call me.

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.

Relaxed and stretched muscles result in increased flexibility. Muscles that were originally tight and tense improve as flexibility improves.
