Skin to Soul was founded in 2006 by Nicole Russo, LMT. Our massage and myofascial therapists are handpicked for their gift of touch and attentiveness. Most have also been trained in the John Barnes Myofascial Release Technique and all take pride in using their training and skills to help clients heal physically and emotionally.
At Skin to Soul, our mission is to challenge the status quo and give our clients a unique authentic approach to health care. Our team of highly skilled and experienced therapists are dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, open environment for our clients’ healing journey. Through listening to our clients’ needs we are able to create an individualized approach to treatment that is effective in freeing our clients from pain. By gently supporting, we witness our clients process emotional blocks, opening the door to discovering their true inner self and inner joy. Through education, we empower our clients to become more self-aware of their bodies and patterns and then give them the tools necessary to leave feeling confident that they can help themselves. Schedule a massage or myofascial therapy session today and get started on the next page of your journey.
