Verna Grindle

Relaxation and renewal for mind and body

In 2009 I began work on my associates degree in the esthetics program at Saint Paul College.During the facial protocol we did quite a bit of massage and I quickly realized that the massage portion was my favorite part of the facial procedure. This prompted me to add on the classes I needed to become a Certified Massage Therapist as well. Although I still love skin care; massage is truly my passion. I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release and Hot Stone Massage. ... more

Massage Envy/ Sunbear Salon- Massage Therapist and Esthetician
I received my AAS Degree in Esthetics and Massage Therapy at Saint Paul College in 2010. Included in my Degree is 780 hours of advanced therapeutic massage. While at Saint Paul College I made the Dean's List for academic success 4 semesters. I am also a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Since graduating I started working at Massage Envy where I worked for 5 years. In the years I have spent at Massage Envy I received advanced training in Hot Stone Massage, and have also received my Salon Managers License. In 2014 I earned 16 continuing education credits in Advanced Deep Tissue massage taught by Robert Haas "Secrets Of Deep Tissue". I have also attended a continuing education class Nov 2015 on Myofascial Mobilization taught by John Barnes, where I earned 10 additional Credits. I am also enrolled in an online class on how to ease muscle pain with essential oils through the Aromahead Institute. Six months ago I began working at Sunbear Salon where I perform massage and facial services. This year 2015 I began my own Massage Practice Relax & Renew Therapeutic Massage. I am very excited to see where this new journey leads.

The massage was tailored to my issues. I was pleased with the pressure. I felt that the therapist could help me my areas of pain and that she was very knowledgeable. She used various techniques during the massage. I have had many massages with many therapists and she is very good. I will return for more.

Asked what type of massage I was looking to receive and got right to it. Best over all massage I've had in years. Relief of stiffness and sore spot was immediate. Verna was pleasant to talk with and friendly. Will definitely try to get in at least once a month.

Verna is very caring. Listens to where I have pain and concentrates more on those areas. Checks often to make sure I'm doing okay. Makes sure the room is warm and comfortable.
