Meet Our Staff
Owner, Cosmetologist, Instructor, Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)
I prefer the holistic approach to personal care and wellness. I believe wellness and beauty are intimately connected. We are better served by considering the person as a whole; structuring our self care with that in mind.
A cosmetologist since 1978, (instructor license 1983), I’ve worked both in the salon and as an educator. In 2002, I received massage therapy training. The following year my spa, Dance of the Sun Day Spa for Wellness was founded. The blending of these two careers has been both rewarding and challenging.
Areas of specialized training include Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, releasing the rotator cuff, myofascial release, anterior neck release, Hungarian face-lift massage, SI joint dysfunction and most recently oncology massage. I provide a medium to deep therapeutic massage. My favorite sessions are a blend of positional release techniques coupled with relaxation, to induce deep rest and ease pain. I also enjoy prenatal massage. A current passion is uniting skin care with massage to alleviate deep facial lines through muscular release and optimum skin care. Our Eminence Organic Skin Care rocks!
Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)
Denise comes to us with a military background. She is punctual and no stranger to hard work. Her calm demeanor is a pleasure to be around. She has a lighter touch, a fluid technique and also has additional training in manual lymphatic drainage!
Her favorite massage session is the 90 minute, where she feels she can get more effective results and get more relief with areas of discomfort.
Medical Qigong Practitioner
Tammy is a Medical Qigong Practitioner. She trained at the International College of Medical Qigong in Palm Desert, California. Her passion is to help others experience their own innate healing abilities and discover wellness on their journey.
Qigong is a branch of Chinese Medicine (centuries old) emerging as a cornerstone of many Eastern influenced alternative medicine practices. Pronounced (chee-kung), the phrase literally translated means energy of life.
Eden Energy Medicine Advanced Practitioner, Licenced Board Certified Massage Therapist
I have been a massage therapist for over 20 years, and have studied and practiced Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) for just as long. Whether in a straight EEM session, or by incorporating energy into a massage, I find clients experience greater relief and deeper healing at the spiritual and emotional levels. Every session is unique, and geared toward an individual's current state of wellness.
Working with clients to improve their quality of life through energy medicine and massage is truly a passion for me and a calling that I find humbling, exciting and exquisitely joyful. It would be an honor and a privilege to collaborate with you on your journey to more radiant health, with the inherent wisdom of your unique and sacred energies leading the way.
