Tranquil Escapes Massage was introduced on September 1st, 2011. It is operated by Rachel Griffith, who has been practicing massage since 1997. My experience began prior to graduation, where I satisfied 50 hours of required practice. Graduation was in March of 1998. I continued my studies and traveled to Columbus, where I acquired my license from the Ohio State Medical Board, in 1999. From this point, I was offered a massage position from 2 different salons in the Belden Village area, in Canton, Ohio. I tried building clientele between the 2, for about 6 months, when my resume at The Hair Shoppe and Spa in North Canton was acknowledged. I began employment in November of 1999 and continued my journey there until November of 2007. Overlapping these years, I also traveled to clients private residences, nursing homes and retirement communities to provide people with massage therapy at their convenient location. In 2003 massage parties became a popular request. The clients had inquired about having several people enjoy massage therapy, at one home. Those are still offered and practiced to the present day. I am certified in cranial sacral therapy for the neck and thorax and also in neuromuscular massage therapy. I thoroughly enjoy my career as a massage therapist and am excited to continue my journey with Paige Densmore at her salon and spa. I have a lot of positive energy and therapy to pass on to all of those in need of massotherapy. Regardless of how one refers to it: pampering, pain management, luxurious treatment, stress relief, etc, massage can be a powerful addition to your healthcare regimen.
