About Sara

16 years ago, back in 2005, I had the brilliant idea of becoming a massage therapist for "just a little while" so I could make some extra money to put myself through nursing school.  I wanted a career that would allow me to help others feel their best.  Along the first few years of my journey as a licensed massage therapist, as I took some college courses here and there, I realized that I didn't need to be anything other than what I already was; providing massage was my way of helping others.  With so much competition in the field, I knew I had to be the very best if I wanted to succeed and I never lost sight of that.  Since then, I have added two more professional licenses to my name as an esthetician and a nail technician.  This has allowed me to add the variety and uniqueness to my services that my clients are so fond of.  My clients are like family to me, and I appreciate, respect and care for every one of them.  After all, I wouldn't be where I am without all of their loving support, encouragement and their grandmother-style boasting!

The Man (and Doggies!) Next to the Woman

In April of 2013, I very hestitantly agreed to a first date with the man who would ultimately become my incredible husband.  Marco has loved me, supported me, and believed in me since the very beginning, giving me the courage I needed to grow my private practice into something much bigger.  Marco and I got married in 2017, giving me rights to a last name that Spa TheraPe would not exist without (thanks, hubby!)  We have two beautiful little soulmates, Roxy and Lucy, who make sure we get plenty of exercise, love and snuggles daily.  I am so grateful for my amazing family and all the ways they make me smile and laugh each day.

Meet Ashley Finch,  Jikiden Reiki Practitioner & Licensed Nail Technician

"Hello!  My name is Ashley and I am a Certified Jikiden Reiki Practitioner and Licensed Nail Technician.  I am also wife to my best friend, step mom to two amazing children, and "mom" to three beautiful kitties.

I have always loved art (especially painting), and have always wanted it to be a part of my life in one way or another.  I had never considered going to nail school, but I had always loved painting my own nails.  My lovely friend, Sara, suggested I get my license and come work with her.  I was hesitant, but I loved art and I really wanted to paint, and was excited at the thought of working with her again.  Once I graduated and started working with Sara at a spa, I learned there was a whole therapeutic side I never knew existed.  While working on the nails and bringing them to optimal health is the main focus of the services, I learned the other areas of the service were just as important.  I could focus more on things like massage techniques and scrubs to help the skin, hands, and feet feel better and improve, as well as aromatherapy and reflexology.  I realized this therapeutic side was an art in itself.  I was actually helping people with something other than making their nails look nice, and was drawn to it.  I loved it.

Flash forward a few years and I started expanding my tool belt with ways to help others.  Along my journey I met a new friend, Leigh Ann Mills at Love and Light with Leigh, who introduced me to Jikiden Reiki.  I was instantly hooked and knew I needed to learn this method of energy healing and share it with everyone.  Shortly after speaking with her about it I signed up for and studied in the Shoden and Okuden classes with her and Kim Miller (which was an absolute blast by the way), and received my certification to become a Jikiden Reiki practitioner.

It is my goal to share everything I've learned, and will learn in the future, with others to help them heal and improve their lives in anyway I can.  I recently left my office job of 12 years to take a leap of faith into this beautiful opportunity to do just that.  Now  I dedicate my time to myself as I continue to grow, to this practice, and to learning as much as I can so I may have a variety of offerings for everyone I encounter.  Helping spread that love and light to make the world a little brighter!"

Meet Jessica Totengco, Licensed Massage Therapist

"Hi!  My name is Jessica and I'm a licensed massage therapist.  I have two adorable little munchkins, Mia and Jonah.  They're the reason why I got into massage therapy.  I wanted to pursue a career that would help me provide for my family and still have the flexibility to have time for them.  I also wanted to continue to fulfill my passion in helping others.

I was a caregiver for the elderly for 6 years, and it brought me joy to be able to help - even if that meant just being there for them.  I loved being a caregiver, but it didn't allow me to fulfill what I needed to at home.  Becoming a massage therapist gave me the best of both worlds.

I can't wait to get to work with all the lovely people that I'll get to meet through this career!  Let's achieve together a healthier mind and body through massage.  Don't worry, I've got your back... literally!"

Meet Janet Gray, Licensed Massage Therapist

Hi my name is Janet Gray and I am a licensed massage therapist and bodyworker. I have been a massage therapist since 2009 and could not have asked for a more rewarding profession. Even after over a decade of work as a massage therapist the joy I get from making people feel better hasn’t gotten old. I enjoy the following modalities the most: trigger/tender point therapy, myofascial work and deep pressure massage. I truly believe that if everyone in the world would get massages regularly, we would live in a happier world. Be part of the happier world initiative and get a massage with me! 

Meet Kirsten Johnson, Licensed Nail Technician

"It’s taken me quite some time, but what I have finally realized is the fact that what I really want to do in my life time is have a positive impact on people’s lives, put people in a good mood, and make them feel better about themselves. Really…I just want to make people’s lives better in anyway that I can. In doing nails, I get to do that…If people look and feel good, it changes their attitude about themselves and life in general.

Hi! My name is Kirsten. I have two AMAZING daughters, Jayden and Jenna who I stayed home with for almost 13 years. While I was a stay at home mom, I also babysat, and was a special ed one to one associate at Northwood Middle School.

I’m a licensed nail technician who got extremely lucky, when the owner of the school that I went to, messaged me letting me know that Spa TheraPe was looking for a nail technician, and telling me that I should go apply. I never thought that I would be so lucky to have found some truly AMAZING people, and be able to work for someone who truly cares, not only about her clients, but her employees as well. It’s a breath of fresh air. Everyone that I work with here has been extremely helpful and caring, and I couldn’t be happier. They are all truly wonderful people that I’m now lucky enough to have in my life."
