Theresa believes that serenity within a centered mind and body is foundation for tranquility and veritable sustainability throughout our planet. As a licensed massage therapist, yoga instructor, spa business consultant and experienced spa owner, she feels a strong calling to assemble a team of like minded health experts in integrative medicine, nutrition, and natural pain management to better assist the communities desire for healthy, disease-free lifestyles.
Effused with a passionate free spirit and a ravenous curiosity, throughout her life she has traveled to ancient and exotic regions across the globe to study indigenous healing modalities and bring them back to practice in the North Carolina mountains. From a month long intensive in Thailand studying with the school who trains therapists to work with their countries royalty, to working along side Ayurvedic Doctors to learn ancient lineages of Ayurveda secrets in Southern India, she is dedicated to integrating these lessons from all journeys into her therapeutic bodywork sessions, wellness articles, and healing escapades all designed to evoke personal transformation for the client. The results are a “self-maintained and sustainable lifestyle less prone to stress and anxiety” for those whom she serves.
