     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

Aromatherapy I & II

Awakening Intuition & the Touch sense

Indian Head, Face and Foot Massage

I loved the cleanliness of the establishment upon entry. The ambiance was excellent instantly setting me at ease. The MT was very professional, knowledgeable and understanding of my needs and matching her skills to them. I will definitely be a repeat customer. I feel great post massage! One more thing, I love honoring an appointment. Gracie was punctual, and I received the full 90 minutes. I hate it when I'm cheated 10 minutes here or there. Thank you again Gracie!

Gracie took her time and really new the point to hit. I most definitely will refer her to other people. What I like most of all you do get your full hour NOT slighted 10 mins like any other facility. She is very professional.

Gracie is first and foremost an excellent Masseuse, she also makes you feel very relaxed and pampered. Little things like hot towels on your feet before she massages them. Her prices are more than reasonable so it makes it affordable to get regular massages. I will definitely re book and come back regularly. I rarely take time for myself, but she makes me want to do it more.
