Vanessa Lombardo

Certified Massage Therapist
“Growing up I witnessed my mom working several jobs at a time and seeing her go through so many different ailments made me feel like I needed to do something to ease her pain. I gave her foot massages or scalp massages to make her feel more relaxed after a long day at work. This made me realize that I love giving massages because she felt relieved and relaxed afterwards. Seeing how grateful and better she felt was a great reward for myself and this made me want to continue in a field where I can heal or make people feel renewed in their body.”
