About Us

My name is Valerie and I have been a licensed massage therapist in Tampa, Florida since 2009. I attended Sunstate Academy in Clearwater, FL in for my massage therapy certification and I quickly discovered I loved the science of massage. Learning about each bone, muscle and attachment amazed me and I was awed by the body and what it could do. I graduated in July of 2009, passed the federal and state exam, and received my license.

My passion is therapeutic massage. Patients come to me hunched over, limping, and hurting and I love the look on their face after the massage when they are standing upright, walking normally.

Massage to me is like a connect-the-dots mystery. So often I will work with a patient to get rid of their knee pain, only to uncover a deeper pain in their low back. We ... more

Valerie Manton is awesome. She takes time to really work out knots and does an overall great job. She is professional, and truly understands the muscular system in the human body. She has a knack for finding “problem areas” I didn’t even know I had! She cares about her clients in that she asks how we’re doing and if there’s any tightness or pain issues that we’re having. I started going to her after being released from therapy following a car accident. I’m thrilled with her work, and have been coming back to her ever since! A word of advice: have your calendar ready because her available time slots fill up VERY quickly!
