Whitney was born and raised in Southern Georgia, and while she has also lived in the mountains of North Carolina, the deserts of Nevada, and the great state of Colorado, she considers Knoxville, Tennessee her home. She has worked at Glowing Body for some time, and she graduated from Arbor College – School of Massage in May of 2017. Whitney always felt compelled to help others, and she is grateful to have found an artistic and healing way in which to do so. Her massage approach can be described as slow, steady, and strong. She incorporates a combination of Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Thai techniques along with energy work to create a relaxing yet effective massage for each client. She believes client care and comfort is of the utmost importance, and her goal is to reduce pain and stress while subtly increasing the client’s body awareness. Whitney recently completed Level 1 training in Grief MassageSM and is peacefully inspired to help those who are experiencing loss. To schedule a Grief Massage or get more information about this type of work, please contact her personally by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She looks forward to continuing her Grief Massage education and study of other bodywork modalities in order to grow her practice and better serve the community.
Cynthia moved to Knoxville in 2008 to begin her BA in Urban Studies at Johnson University. After graduation, she decided to settle in East Tennessee and soon felt called to study massage therapy. Her friends and family encouraged her to pursue this calling and to deepen the ways she helped and cared for others. In 2017 Cynthia relocated to Asheville to study at the Asheville School of Massage and Yoga where she learned to look at massage and the body holistically. After graduating in March of 2018, Cynthia had the opportunity to continue her studies in Asheville through the Extended Study Program. Though she had a transformative time in Asheville, she was drawn back to her community in Knoxville.
Through her studies, Cynthia has developed an interest in deep tissue, trigger point, and myofascial massage. She especially enjoys working to release both chronic and acute physical pain, and also holds space for the release of pain that is more emotional or mental. She looks forward to deepening her practice at The Glowing Body.
