I have always had a love for medicine & nutrition. Unfortunately, I do not like bodily fluids so being a doctor or a nurse would not be a good job profession for me. I met Valerie Smith Rye (Twin Bay Clinical Massage) in my mid 30's. That was my first experience with massage therapy. I really enjoyed receiving my first massage. I was a single parent of 2 daughters and was unable to afford massage therapy school until I was 40. At that time I enrolled at Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts & Sciences. I did my internship with Valerie Smith Rye & worked at her office for 7 years. I was able to see all kinds of clientele from relaxation, to depression, pre-natal, scoliosis, chronic pain, automobile accidents, parapalegic, quadrapalegic & many other types of scenarios.
In October, 2012, I opened Serenity Massage & Wellness. I believe massage therapy should be affordable to all walks of life so I keep my rates at a reasonable rate & have been known to barter for someone that is experiencing rough times but needs massage therapy. I also participate with many community fundraisers and charities on an ongoing basis. I also participate in a few worldly missions in addition to helping in our community.
To keep expenses down, I return all calls at the end of the day (unless time permits me to call in between clients). I am the only therapist in my office, therefore I can only see one client at a time. If you wish to come with a friend, I can often schedule the appointments one after the other. My waiting area has a massage chair along with a Keurig coffee pot. Sometimes if they choose not to wait they may drop their friend off and run errands to Meijer, Kohl's, Michaels, Grand Traverse Mall, etc. (many stores, restaurants & drug store near my office).
- We bill for automobile accidents

- Gift Certificates available upon request
We look forward to scheduling an appointment with you soon.
Thank you for looking,
