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.

Zekia was warm and friendly and knowledgeable.
by Traci on Aug 25
Zakia is the best massage therapist I've ever found. She always asks how things are feeling, and adjusts her pressure accordingly. I have special requirements (I can't lay flat, so I have to prop up with pillows), and she had no problems accomodating me. She is very friendly yet professional. I can't recommend her enough!
