Relax Blacksburg's
Massage Therapists

These are the massage therapists working at Relax Blacksburg.  We are all Licensed by the Virginia Board of Nursing.

If it's experience you are looking for, you've come to the right place.  All of our therapists have many years of experience helping clients meet their health goals.  We are also very proud to invest heavily in advancing our skills through continuing education.

You deserve the best.  Come experience truly high-quality massage.

But don't take our word for it.  Check out some reviews from our clients.

And please don't feel obligated to stick with just one therapist.  Feel free to book with all of our therapists so you can figure out who you prefer.  Some of our clients even rotate between therapists, as we are all very different in our styles. 

No matter who you choose, we will all create a customized massage session focusing on your individual needs.  If you are in pain, we will create a specific treatment plan just for you.  If you just want to relax, we will focus on getting you into a deep state of relaxation so your stress will melt away.
