A little about (my)Tiffany's massage style...
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. My pressure tends to be firm but I customize pressure based on client preference. A relaxing Swedish mixed with hot stones, an invigorating head, neck & scalp massage and a bit of deep tissue as needed is what most of my clients call me for.
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 and most recently, 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 endlessly editing and beautifying this website.
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, HIIT and walking. After a long day of the sales grind, I'd escape to the gym or outdoors to workout. With a multitude of benefits also came lots of knots 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 "get" you and I've got your BACK!

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.
