About Sara

14 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 Karen Weiler,

Licensed Massage Therapist

"Hi there!  My name is Karen and I'm a licensed massage therapist, est. June 2018.  I know that isn't a lot of time under my belt,  but don't let that fool you!  My massage techniques can either put you to sleep with total relaxation, or target those deep areas that are crying for some relief.

A little bit about myself... My interest in massage therapy goes back about 12 years when I was 18 years old.  I researched schools and did tours, but I never truly dedicated myself to the idea.  I decided to join a bartending academy instead, making that my career for the next 10 years.

It wasn't until I met the love of my life, Brian, and we had our beautiful daughter, that I realized it was time to do what really interested me.  Yet again, massage therapy was calling my name.

During the journey of developing and focusing on my new career, I met my most amazing mentor and close friend, Sara Pe.  After a year practicing chiropractic massage, and after the birth of my second beautiful daughter, I made the decision to bring my personal touch to Spa TheraPe.  This allows me to have a wonderful balance of home life where I can spend quality time with my family, and work life where I can provide an amazing clientele help in achieving self care.

My goal is to educate our clients on the importance of self cafe and give them the timeout they need to alleviate stress and stay healthy through mind, body and soul.  I am so excited to start this incredible journey with close friends, and to help my new clients take a break from their everyday grind."
