“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
I watched my mom and dad run a successful business, and over the years I experienced first hand the pros and cons that owning your own business brings. One day I thought, ‘they own a business, and yet they always have the ability to see what we are doing, they get to be here for my siblings and I, and when I realized their “jobs” were what was allowing that to happen, it really impacted me. I wanted that for myself.
Find your passion and the rest will fall into place.
I remember my mom telling me to just find something I like — something I can be passionate about — and to go for it!
Let's rewind a bit!
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from James Madison University in 3-1/2 years. Following JMU, I pursued and received certification in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), helping my patients reduce adhesions and scar tissue build-up, and recover range of motion from orthopedic surgery and chronic pain.
I was an instructor of NMT at Colorado School of Healing Arts, teaching students this clinical modality. Because of the joy I found in sharing NMT with others, I felt it to be my calling to share my knowledge and skill-set with the Richmond community. Since 2006, I have been a guest lecturer for Virginia Commonwealth University's Complimentary and Alternative Medicine course My work as a NMT massage therapist is centered on my belief that the body has an inate ability to heal itself and that I am a facilitator of the healing process, providing a space for the healing to begin. Wow, that still amazes me.
My dreams began unfolding before my eyes.
In 2000, I opened Therapeutic Massage & Wellness Center,
specializing in therapies for chronic pain, athletic injuries,
sciatica, chronic fatigue syndrome, headaches and migraines,
fibromyalgia, hypertension, and TMJ dysfunction.
...but I had even bigger aspirations.
The concept of a wellness destination, an oasis, where one
could receive various types of complimentary, holistic medicine
under one roof. Nothing like this yet existed in Richmond. What!
It was exactly what the Richmond community needed, and as
luck and The Universe would have it--the timing was perfect.
So we got to work.
The Wellness Village in western Henrico was born.
A holistic medicine facility, changing the lives of hundreds of people
each week. Today people are interested in feeling better with less
medication and we provide a means of achieving that.
The Wellness Village is a group of individual professional
practitioners, conveniently brought together under one roof,
to provide you with holistic therapy options which complement
Wellness Village services include:
-Colon Hydrotherapy (Colonics)
-Ion Cleanse Detox Foot Baths
-Pilates,Barre,and Movement Studio
Growing up I never thought of anything but owning my own business.
Therapeutic Massage & Wellness Center named four times in Top 3 for Best of Massage Therapy.
Thank you for your support, we appreciate your continued business!

It’s hard work running your own business, but the benefits outweigh the hardships, and the love outweighs everything else. I own my own business because it works for me, it works for the people around me, and it affords me countless opportunities to be an advocate and force for women in the Richmond community.
The Wellness Village serves an oasis for rejuvination and holistic health.
"I’ll admit, building The Wellness Village was one of the most challenging things I could have ever imagined. Everything moved fast and I worked hard — but I also had a lot of fun. Looking back, I have no idea how I did it. Sometimes today I just stop and look around — it fills me with such joy and gratitude."
