JENNIE MCDANIEL, LMT
Jennie has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for 14 years, earning her license from Olympia Trade School in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

From there she sold the business and moved to Colorado where she learned Energy and Intuitive work as well as worked with other advanced healers in California, Denver and Boulder. This expanded her vision of a multilayered healing experience. She learned that to fully heal, one must heal from many different angles.
Her training includes deep tissue and relaxation techniques, trigger point, Swedish, energy work and aromatherapy. Her specialty is deep tissue and relaxation massage with emotional, physical and spiritual health tips paired with Universal energy work. A session with her can range from a basic relaxation to a deep tissue massage with emotional release. It would not be uncommon to add a few crystals and essential oils to the session as it brings in a lovely healing frequency.
Leah Shugart, LMT, RYT 500
As Leah began her personal healing journey of yoga in 2013, she found a desired interest in the healing art of massage therapy. The more internal diving she did, the more she began to accept that her dharma, or karmic duty, was to provide healing to others. In 2014, she completed her first 200 hour yoga teacher training with Jessica Jollie of Chattanooga, where she learned how mindfully moving the body with breath can drastically change an individual’s overall well being. That same year, she graduated from Chattanooga State's massage therapy program, where she learned modalities such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, Hot Stone and Reiki healing.
Since then, she's practiced privately as well as in a fast past clinic setting, and furthered her training in massage with deep tissue and myofascial workshops. She also spent the first 6 weeks of 2017 studying yoga in the jungles of Costa Rica with Passion Yoga school, and obtained her 500 hour yoga teacher training.
Leah's massage practice is rooted in her knowledge and practice of the yoga tradition, allowing for a nourishing session of the mind, body and spirit. Her sessions can incorporate breath work, stretching and potentially even homework. She also offers private, personalized yoga classes to help promote the healing affects of your massage.
