     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

Gracie was great! I requested a hot stone massage. The stone temperature was perfect. Extremely relaxing atmosphere! I'm definitely going back for another massage

Ms. Grace is absolutely amazing! I was lucky enough to cross paths with her a little over a year ago, and she has become my go-to and only massage therapist since. She is professional, prompt, knowledgable in her craft, relays a total sense of peace and comfort before, during and after each massage, and provides feedback after each session to better help me understand my areas of tightness and places I may need to focus on stretching more. Her prices in general, but especially for a masseuse of her caliber are unparalleled. I would, and have, recommended Ms. Grace to all of my friends and family!
