In 2009, Charlotte began her path to holistic health after she was diagnosed with a severe case of malaria. Her most effective rehabilitation to her condition (swelling of the joints) was yoga, which opened up an unknown world she knew she was destined to master. After several years of a passionate dedication to her yoga practice, she went to a yoga training in Los Angeles and began working as a yoga instructor in Charleston, South Carolina where she went to college. Naturally, working with the human body from a holistic view point increased her desire to find an additional modality to provide healing with human contact and interaction. In fall 2015 she attended the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy and obtained her massage therapy certificate. She is currently licensed in the state of Connecticut as well as continuing education in massage at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in NYC. Charlotte plans to continue this path of health and healing and has a long term goal of opening up her own practice which will include holistic psychotherapy and nutrition.

Nina has always enjoyed exercising and dancing since childhood. Because of plenty of physical activities, she personally sought out massage as a way to release soreness and increase range of motion. She loves to travel and never forgot what she learned when she received massages in different countries such as in Thailand, China and Korea. Those experiences helped her to better understand how to perform therapeutic massage.
Meditation is the other area that she is interested in and practices frequently — a strong mind creates a strong body. In order to give an excellent massage to her clients, she strongly believes she needs to have a healthy mind and body to deliver positive energy from her mind through her hands.
