About this pro

My business, A Peaceful Oasis is geared towards women ONLY-mostly ages 35+, dealing with aches, pains, stress and tension relief. I also see a lot of ladies with headaches and TMJ as well. While most of my work is therapeutic relxation massage, I tailor each and every session to meet the needs of my client. I offer 30, 60 and 90 minute sessions. I also do Reiki, and Aromatherapy. 

I feel the most alive and at peace while giving a massage. I love being a part of the healing process.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Greet them then I have them fill out an intake form, I review that form with them in the treatment room. I will ask questions in regards to what they want worked on most that session so I can get an idea what may work the best. And I often find myself not always doing a full-body massage unless the client requests it. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am an April 2014 graduate of Miami-Jacobs Career College in Downtown Dayton, OH where I received 900+ hours of instruction, both classroom and clinical.  I took and passed the MBLEx (licensing exam) in May of 2014, received my actual license in July 2014. 

I am also a member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association)

How did you get started in this business?

I became interested in massage many years ago through a college physical education instructor demonstrating her knowledge of massage and how it helps relieve pain. I put desires to learn more on the back burner. In 2012 while I was a nursing student, I received my very first professional massage from a LMT connected to the school's spa. I fell in in love with how I felt. When nursing school did not work out for me, I then went back to retail work, but that was not for me. I then went seeking out a school and enrolled in Miami-Jacobs in the early part of 2013. Upon graduating and passing my licensing exam, I worked at a few places until I came to open my own business, originally called Simply Healthy Therapeutics and changed it to it's current name a couple years back to A Peaceful Oasis. I've since narrowed down my target audience to women.


What types of customers have you worked with?

In the last couple years, I've seen mostly women, more are a bit older, I would say, middle-aged on up. Many experience back, neck and shoulder pain. I've worked on some with TMJ issues. I have also worked with clients with MS. But the ones who seem to love my work the most are those that are not into deep tissue but rather a more therapeutic relaxation massage, which I excell at.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Know what exactly you want in a massage service. I am a firm believer that for massage to be good and effective, it does not have to hurt. It needs to feel good, healing, relaxing, stress relieving. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What is their greatest area of pain. What matters more, relaxation, pain relief or feeling "beat up" by a massage therapist. What is their expected outcome of the massage session.
