     Becoming a certified massage therapist is a dream come true. When I was young I would massage my mother’s tired, sore shoulders after her long days of working. Although, I had no idea what I was doing she always said they felt better afterward.

     Becoming a certified massage therapist is a dream come true. When I was young I would massage my mother’s tired, sore shoulders after her long days of working. Although, I had no idea what I was doing she always said they felt better afterward. I grew up and forgot about that, but after I was laid off I had time to reflect and think about what I could do that would make me happy. This is when massage therapy became an option for me. I thoroughly enjoy helping my clients feel their best and recover from muscle pain and stress they are experiencing.

I attended American Institute of Massage and graduated May 2009. I passed the NCBTMB and received my certification from the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Health Professions in August 2009. I started working on my own and opened Total Peace Massage, LLC in March 2010. Unfortunately, shortly after that opening I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. I was unable to work during my many months of treatments, so I closed that location. Once I was able to return to work, I went to work for someone else. I gained a great deal of knowledge for running a massage business and realized how much I truly love giving therapeutic massage that help people relieve their pain, stress and just feel better. The best part of my job is seeing my clients face after their massage.

I am very blessed to have the opportunity to start Total Peace Massage, LLC (TPM) once again at 2505 Pocoshock Place, Suite 203, North Chesterfield, VA 23235. A quite county setting that offers a private parking lot with plenty of parking spaces.

Reflexology

Pregnancy Massage

Easing the Pain of Fibromyalgia with Massage

Gracie is a miracle worker. I own a cleaning company so needless to say, my body is always in knots. She is so skilled with helping my pain. I wouldn’t ever see another massage therapist!!!

I loved the hot stone, however I will go back to the deep tissue massage. I can always feel the deep tissue the next day and I love that. I always love going to just relax and enjoy my time of being taken care of.

Gracie is always professional, caring and knowledgeable. She is the best message therapist in the area. I refuse to go anywhere else.

Gracie took into account my problem areas before beginning and made sure that the pressure/massage in those areas wasn’t too much during the massage itself. i appreciated how she took the time to work on my problem areas while checking with me as she worked.
