Kelly Bush graduated from Irene's Myomassology Institute in 2013 after studying a range of modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, aromatherapy, and hot stone massage. She combines a natural intuition for finding tight spots with a passion for knowledge and continuing education to help facilitate each client's individual goals. Clients can expect a massage that both relaxes and balances the body. Kelly is excited to share the amazing things she has learned about the human body and the ways massage can improve everyone's quality of life. When she's not researching new ways to improve her skills in therapeutic massage, Kelly can be found training for Brazilian jiu jitsu and looking for balance in her own life.
Jasmine A graduate of the Everest Institute, Jasmine Ware still finds herself in awe of what massage can accomplish and describes herself as being invested in helping to increase the overall health and well-being of her clients. She loves to use all the tools of massage to help people feel better, including Reflexology, Energy (Reiki), Craniosacral therapy, Swedish massage, Lymphatic Drainage, and Trigger-Point therapy. She will adjust her pressure when needed and where requested. She wishes everyone knew that receiving a massage can increase blood circulation, which in turn decreases stress and its effects on the whole body. By using a combination of assisted joint movement and stretches, massage can also help improve the body's ability to move without stiffness or pain. Outside work, Jasmine enjoys reading, singing, and taking walks in nature. She also loves spending time with her children, her cat, Reily and her beagle, Joy. Some day she'd love to write a book of inspiration and motivation. She works hard to ensure her children continue to be successful in school by leading by example.

She has also studied Shiatsu in Japan for 8 months. Malika combines these different techniques and 15 years of experience in the field to address her clients' problem areas.

Shogang Bian studied privately with a Shiatsu master in the early 1980s where he learned Shiatsu using traditional Japanese healing therapy techniques. He has worked as a Shiatsu therapist since 1987 and is considered to be a highly experienced practitioner of this modality. As such, Shogan can help a wide range of specific injuries as well as improve the general symptoms of poor health.
