I have been a licensed massage and bodywork therapist since April 2010 and I received my certification from Southeastern Institute in Charlotte, NC with a concentration in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, and Trigger Point therapy. Since graduating I have become certified in Prenatal, Hot Stone, Sports massage, Bamboo Fusion, Thai Foot Massage, Integrative Reflexology, and Cupping.  In being a massage therapist I have been blessed with meeting some amazing people and found a love for massage and all the benefits it can offer. 


 I enjoy being involved in this remarkable field that I can share with others.  Massage therapy provides me the ability to make a person’s day better either through relaxation or working out muscular issues.   I have worked with professional athletes, cyclists, bodybuilders, competitive runners and more. Even if you are not an athlete, Sports Massage and Cupping Massage are very beneficial. I offer a full body stretch in an effort to get your body loose and moving! I always look forward to helping my clients, working on flexibility, and giving them at home stretches to maintain a whole body experience. 

Modalities and certifications: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromusuclar, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone, Pre-Natal, Sports Massage, Bamboo Fusion, Integrative Reflexology, Cupping, and Thai Foot Massage. 

Days I work: Monday-Friday and every other Sunday.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Roseanne on Jun 18
Zakia is the perfect therapist. She really listens to me and makes sure to focus on areas that bother me. She is also very personable and I feel very comfortable with her. I have been to many massage therapists but no one even comes close to her skill and caring.

I go to Z for ongoing back pain, she is always professional and is concerned with helping my pain. We always discuss how and where pain is and has been doing and where I want her to focus. It's so great when I can get off the table and be pain free.
