Gayle L. Smith, owner of SoZo Massage LLC, is proud be a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT) practicing in the west end of Richmond, Virginia. Gayle studied massage therapy at one of the top up and coming programs in the country, The University of Richmond’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies Massage Therapy Program. Throughout Gayle’s life she has been an advocate for regular body maintenance through tennis, yoga, weight lifting, and massage. 

Gayle's primary area of focus for her practice is sports massage, more specifically tennis injuries and rehabilitation. Gayle is a lifetime tennis player, growing in the game as a child, then in high school, and in college at the University of Mary Washington. Gayle played four years of singles and doubles and was the team captain for two years. Gayle’s love of tennis and massage fit together perfectly. 

Gayle specializes in sports, relaxation, deep tissue, trigger point, prenatal, and aromatherapy massage. She is also able to use massage to treat clients with specific diagnosed conditions such as, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tension headaches, thoracic outlet syndrome, and hyperkyphosis. Regular massage, exercise and a balanced diet will keep your body rejuvenated, relaxed and restored. There are many benefits to regular massage, such as lowered blood pressure, increased circulation, reduced stress, soothes anxiety and depression, boosts serotonin and dopamine. Massage is also beneficial for skin health. Gayle tailors her relaxation massages to fit your needs.
