Relax, Rest, Renew

     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.

     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

Aromatherapy I & II

Awakening Intuition & the Touch sense

Indian Head, Face and Foot Massage

Best massage I have had in a long time! The office was relaxing and peaceful too. A great experience.

Amazing Grace! Gracie is PHENOMENAL I have visited her twice now and am already wondering when I can schedule for next. She's sweet & very professional. Her space is aromatic; filled with lavender and other essential oils. The warm table and warm sheets automatically kidnap your body when you lay down. Don't worry...it's in good hands. She'll customize to your needs - just say what. I have referred 2 friends to her and they too now know what it feels like to enter into Total Peace.

Gracie is an amazing massage therapist! She gives you your moneys worth - always focuses on areas of the body that are giving me problems (joint issues). I'm so happy a friend of mine suggested I try her out.
