MEET THE TEAM
Angela B. - LMT
Hi, my name is Angela Brewer, and I decided to become a massage therapist on a whim! Corporate America no longer appealed to me and my previous company was reducing its workforce by offering buyouts to its employees. So I jumped at the chance to take a buyout and go! On a quest to find alternative healthcare for myself, my thirst for knowledge in this field of healthcare led me to the decision to go back to school for a degree in Holistic Nutrition. But the thought occurred to me that while pursuing this degree, I may need to earn money! The topic of massage therapy came up in conversation with a co-worker, and that’s where the idea came from – “I can provide massages while I go back to school!”
I then learned about a “Friends and Family Massage” class offered at Irene’s Myomassology Institute. I signed up for the class along with my father as my partner. Upon completion of the class, I determined that if I can massage my father, I can massage anyone! So I took the company buyout and enrolled in the 6-month accelerated massage therapist program at Irene’s Myomassology Institute in 2009 and never looked back. Once I completed the program and started working as a massage therapist, I decided not to pursue the degree in Holistic Nutrition. Becoming a massage therapist was the best decision for me! I love my job and it makes me feel good to make others feel better. Every BODY needs and can benefit from massage, it’s not just a luxury - it’s a necessity.
Ellie M. - LMT
My name is Ellie Mayette and I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2017. I graduated from Irene’s Myomassology Institute with over 700 hours of training in various modalities of therapeutic massage. A typical session with me will include a combination of myofascial, trigger point, and stretching therapies blended together in a relaxing, rhythmic flow. I am also very passionate about Thai and Shiatsu massage, energy work, reflexology and lymphatic drainage. I enjoy working slowly with intent to bring you physical body awareness, and help you let go of unwanted tension. I am inspired by each individual I work with that chooses to make their wellness a priority, and I am honored to be involved in that journey with you!
Nancy G. - LMT
In January 1994, I began a long term career as an Occupational Therapist. Early on, I realized more skills were necessary to manage my client’s pain, muscle spasms and immobility. My quest for more knowledge led me to Irene’s Myomassology Institute and I became a licensed massage therapist in 1995. I have integrated my massage skills daily in the rehab setting treating chronic pain, orthopedic, geriatric and neurological disorders with positive results. Throughout the years, I have expanded my skills to include advanced training in myofascial release, cranio-sacral therapy, lymphatic massage, muscle energy techniques, integrative manual therapy and aromatherapy.
I approach each massage session with a perceptive eye and ear looking for imbalances in posture and muscles, while listening to your concerns. The result is a session that integrates appropriate modalities to return you to your desired level of activity without pain or limitations. I look forward to working with you on your journey to health and wellness.
Kahaila H. - LMT
Hi, my name is Kahaila Hampton and I've been a licensed and certified massage therapist since 2017. I graduated from Irene's Myomassology Institute in Southfield, MI with over 700 training hours. I love working as a massage therapist because I am able to help so many people with different issues concerning the body. I can also help them to relax and forget those problems while learning to solve them. Having an athletic background myself, I particularly enjoy working with athletes, utilizing either sports massage or my personal favorite – table Thai massage. However, I do also love performing Swedish massage, in hopes of just making your day a little less stressful!

Jody F. - LMT
In 2003, I became a graduate of Irene's Myomassology Institute. After leaving a medical billing position of 8 years, enrolling at Irene's became a turning point in my career, allowing me to focus on learning all the different types of massage therapy and the wonderful benefits accomplished through the healing art of touch. I am a firm believer in the inseparable connection between body/mind, and am a proponent of massage for relieving physical as well as emotional stress. I also strongly believe in massage as a viable modality for enhancing over all health and well-being.
I am able to provide an invigorating sports massage for fatigued, sore muscles, or I can work with you on injury rehabilitation, relieving migraines and tension-related headaches, or helping you forget about life stresses for an hour with relaxation focused treatment. Each session is tailored to meet your needs, done in a serene, comfortable, and professional setting.
Melissa P. - LMT
Hi, my name is Melissa. I have been a practicing massage therapist since 2005. I am a graduate of Irene’s Myomassology Institute, where along with learning swedish and deep tissue massage I have training in hot stone, prenatal, thai massage and stretching. During a session I like to use many techniques to help each client reach their individual goals of health and wellness. Assisting in the process of connectedness and healing is in part why I chose to be in this field. I enjoy working with pain management, rehabilitation and general relaxation. I look forward to working with you in bringing balance back into life.

Stacy K. - LMT
I've been a practicing massage therapist since 2004, graduating from the Health Enrichment Center where I received over 4,500 hours of massage training. In my years of practice I've developed a keen awareness of structural and postural patterns that contribute to our everyday aches and pains. And although I've had specialized training in such areas as visceral manipulation, lymphatic drainage, craniosacral therapy, kinesio taping, and myofascial release, I find the greatest success in utilizing a combination of modalities. So whether you're suffering from headaches or back pain, are an athlete or elderly, or are just looking for a relaxing experience, I have the tools to provide the experience you are looking for. It's all about balance.
