Kandy owns and operates her own Massage Therapy practice since August of 2010. She believes strongly in the physical and emotional benefits of massage and that everyone should have an hour of stress relief and relaxation at least once a week. Touch is incredibly beneficial and needed in our touch-deprived society. And the peace that a massage session brings can help immeasurably in this stressful and busy society we live in.

Denise

Densie was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and we are so fortunate that her path in life brought her to Kansas City. She has always been a lover of nature, animals and people, focusing her attention with the intent of helping heal others through massage therapy, which has been a passion of hers. Denise graduated from Wellspring School of Allied Health in 2013 with 984 hours of theory and practice and has continued her education with 26 hours of studies in West Coast Massage, Deep Tissue and Hand Reflexology. Her specialty and favorite massage to perform is Integrated Swedish by intermingling other modalities and also enjoys hand and foot reflexology. With her strong motivation and great communication skills, you are certain to walk away feeling incredible and have that nagging knot or discomfort relieved as well.

When Denise is not taking care of others you can find her working out at the gym, writing poetry or spending time with her 3 grown children. We are thrilled to have her on board and she looks forward to serving you!
