About Us

I graduated from Miller-Motte College in Cary, NC at the top of my class in June of 2010. While attending massage school I was exposed to a variety of techniques and massage modalities, but my interests currently focus on learning more about myofascial release techniques, trigger point therapies, lymphatic drainage, aromatherapy as well as Reiki and Touch for Health.
 
I have always been interested in massage, but decided to pursue it as a second career after my mother was in a car accident leaving her with a herniated disc and continual back pain. This has given me a love for massage that focuses on relieving functional and structural discomfort frequently caused by injury, poorly setup work stations or overly ambitious activities taken on by weekend warriors.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Definitely going back

    I did a 1 hour cupping therapy massage and it was amazing! Carla helped with a lot of knots I had on my upper back and some I didn't even know I had! She's very nice, very comfortable setting and a great experience. Definitely going to start going to her frequently!

  • My first visit with Carla, she explained the entire process even though I had done cupping many years ago. Her process was much different which I prefer! I felt much better for it and will return for another session!

    Had my first cupping massage...and it was...AUH-MAZING!!! I went in with soo much tension in my shoulder to the point where they felt stuck, uncomfortable and it was affecting my posture. I left feeling relaxed, renewed and back to myself again. Carla is GREAT! She walks you through everything, makes you feel comfortable and works magic!!

  • First time experience. Everything was explained to me and I felt very comfortable. I will definitely be back.

    I like the fact that she knows what she is doing and if she doesn't know she says so.

  • The cupping returned my arm back to a full range of motion and my back pain is greatly reduced. Thank you so much!

    It was worth the buck. I would definitely go back. Carla is experienced and knows what she's doing.

  • Having experienced various massage therapists who specialize in different techniques, Carla was by far my favorite therapist. She paid a lot of attention to my problem areas (neck and shoulders) and was very conscious of my needs. She was very professional, on time, knowledgeable, and experienced. The studio was very clean and ambiance was very relaxing. Would highly recommend Carla to everyone I know.

    Easily identified my trouble spots and worked them out... Still allowing me to function the next day!

Business response:

Stefanie, so glad the cups worked for you, they are an amazing tool and find and release areas of tension with ease, and as you continue to receive work with them, they have a cumulative effect and you will find longer periods of relief before tension builds up again.

Carla was on time. Asked questions about my needs or what areas should she focus on and why. Very knowledgeable and experienced with her craft. She offers a tranquil room while meeting the kneads of my tight muscles. I highly recommend her service to others.

Overall great experience. Carla was very tuned into my specific needs. She asked a lot of questions about what was ailing me to insure I had the best experience.

I'm so glad I was able to meet your needs, and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review.

If you post the same review on Facebook or Yelp with your name, it will get you a second (or third) entry and of course increase your chances of winning.

Carla was knowledgeable and very helpful in dealing with my tight IT bands. She also used a mint eye pillow during the massage, which was very nice. I've had plenty of massages and this is the first time a therapist has ever used an eye pillow. She also seemed willing to accommodate longer appointments if her schedule allowed. I plan to return.

At first I was thrown off by the location being in an office park and having trouble finding the studio, but I was quickly put at ease. Carla was welcoming, professional and very communicative/responsive to my preferences. She made sure she understood the level of pressure that felt great to me. The massage was relaxing and I felt incredible for the rest of the day. Highly recommended!

My first massage with Carla today,and I was impressed. Great location, good ambiance, and awesome massage. Just the right amount of pressure. She really found my pressure points/tension without any direction. I am was very pleased...and relaxed by the end of my appointment.

I liked the location, right in the middle of Brier Creek/RTP. Easily accessible from home and work for me. The studio was quaint, clean and had a pleasing yet subtle fragrance. If I were to change anything it would be a more dim lighting or an eye cover but overall my experience was extremely pleasant and I plan to schedule bodywork session with you on a regular basis.
