Rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.   Perceptive individuals who are in-the-know have been making us their first choice for relaxing and healing massage therapy and bodywork  for twenty-three (23) ) years.  I look forward to you becoming one of those enlightened clients and making The Balanced Body Shoppe your  first choice to receive some of the best massage therapy available in the upstate in Greenville, South Carolina .

My goal  is to  help you reach your personal goals.  Some of you are looking to maximize wellness and health, some simply want to "de-stress" and relax.  Others are looking for help with chronic pain, injury or illness in order to restore healthy function and activity as much as possible for their individual and unique situation.  I hope you will call to discuss your unique needs; perhaps massage therapy will become part of your wellness program to help you feel better in mind and body.

Please explore this website to learn more about massage and bodywork services and the retail / gift shoppe. Your feedback regarding the user-friendliness of the site is also appreciated as it has recently been newly designed but will be ever changing to meet your needs just as your massage sessions may differ in order to meet your changing needs.

Massage has been proven over the centuries to induce relaxation and to combat chronic stress and pain.  It is also used to cleanse the body of waste products, help certain injuries heal faster, relieve muscle soreness or stiffness and treat a variety of secondary pain symptoms such as headache, low back pain or tensing of otherwise  healthy muscles to protect an injury.   While not a substitute for medical treatment, massage therapy has been used in conjunction with chiropractic, psychological counseling, physical therapy and other  therapies to increase the body's ability for healing.

Massage therapists use a range of massage techniques that improve circulation, detoxify the body, relieve tension, improve digestion, enhance muscle tone, and increase mental alertness. Massage not only benefits the body; it benefits the mind as well because it affects the autonomic nervous system.  Research shows during and after a massage session the body produces serotonin and other natural endorphins that may act as pain relievers, help reduce inflammation, lower cortisol levels and increase beneficial circulation and lymphatic flow while calming the mind. 

 Experience mental and spiritual healing as your mind releases stress and worry.  Many people come away with a  renewed sense of energy and emotional well-being.

Massage techniques promote:

  • Emotional Balance
  • Relaxation
  • Physical Healing
  • Improved Digestion
  • Improved Mobility
  • Pain Relief
  • Detoxification
  • Increased Energy
  • Improved Circulation
  • Improved Sleeping Patterns
  • Stress Reduction
  • Increased Productivity 

 Choosing A Therapist

The State of South Carolina requires all massage therapists to be licensed and to display their license.  

You deserve and want to be assured that your therapist is a professional.  Certification in one or more modalities is a further assurance that a therapist cares to give only the best to her clients.

Never hesitate to ask to see a therapist's credentials.   Be sure to look at any expiration dates to help you determine that your therapist's credentials remain current.

We encourage clients to receive massage therapy from different therapists, but it is always your choice to see one or more therapists.  

The benefits of working with only one therapist include allowing you and the therapist to develop a more in-depth working relationship.      

Working with  multiple therapists allows you to experience a wider range of modalities and techniques.  It also allows you to schedule appointments with less advance notice. 

Some clients love the variety while others like the continuity of one (or perhaps 2) therapists.  The choice is always yours.
