We Give Back

As a small local business, we feel it is incredibly important that we give back to our community. 

July 15, 2021 Update

This year we donated a total of $3,000 to local charities in celebration of our six year anniversary.  Each of our nine team members got to choose a charity to give $300 plus we asked our community to choose a charity for the remaining $300. 

Here are the charities we all chose and the amounts donated:

Melissa chose New River Land Trust - $300
Brian chose PAWS of SWVA - $300
Anne chose Micah's Backpack - $300
Polly chose Women's Resource Center of the New River Valley - $300
Katherine chose ACCE (NRCC Educational Foundation, Inc.) - $300
Amanda chose Mountain View Humane - $300
Molly and Micah chose NRV Cares - $600
Andrea chose Pound Pals of Radford - $300
And our community chose New River Community Action - $300

May 15, 2020 Update 

We had originally planned on donating to local charities in celebration of our five year anniversary on July 1, 2020.  However, COVID-19 changed everything and we realized that charities needed help sooner. 

We were fortunate that we were in a position to still be able to help our local community even though we were shutdown - and that is what we felt compelled to do. 

We donated a total of $3,000 to local charities (each of our ten team members got to choose a charity to give $300).  Plus we are also donated 10% of all our gift card sales from May 1 - May 14th.  We totaled the amounts and donated to the charities on May 15th. 

Here are the charities we all chose and the amounts donated:

Melissa picked Mountain View Humane ($341)
Brian picked Humane Society of Montgomery County ($341)
Erin, Anne and Heather picked Micah's Backpack ($910)
Rebekah picked Animal Welfare Foster Program ($356)
Polly picked NRV Cares ($341)
Katherine and Molly picked Women's Resource Center of the NRV ($650)
Amanda picked Ride-A-Rescue ($341)

Our Biggest Contribution

Our biggest contribution to our community is giving back to our staff.  The massage profession is unfortunately known for mistreating therapists, and we wanted to demonstrate that it doesn't have to be that way.

We classify our therapists as employees, give them generous pay, premium health and dental benefits, free chiropractic care, 15 days paid time off, a free 90 minute massage every month, free continuing education and a matching 401(k) plan. 

Because all of these benefits are expensive, we are limited in the amount of donations we can make in a given year.  We try to rotate donations as opposed to continuing to donate to the same organizations in order to maximize our community impact. 

Please understand that frequently get overwhelmed with donation requests and can no longer say yes to everyone.  We hope you understand.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
