Hi I'm Vanessa the owner and Licensed massage therapist of Luna Therapeutic Massage! Many of you who follow my social media have known me most of my life. Although many of my new guest might not (follow us on IG & FB @lunatherapeuticmassage lol) so I decided to let you know a bit of me! I am 28 years old (yikes) I am Mexican/American, I have lived most of my life here in Michigan even though I was born in Texas. In my spare time I love to read, cuddle with my pups & be with my husband Cristian. I have an amazing, loving family! For about 7 years I worked at a plastic factory until I finally decided to take the leap & go to massage school!
A lot of people do not really know the whole story of why I decided Massage! Well my mother unfortunately suffered from Cancer, as many people nowadays do. Well we use to have this routine that once I got home from work I would run up to her room & tell her about my day, complain about the stress etc. Some of those days she would be in a bit of pain so she would ask me to massage her hands or feet for a little relief which I would, at that time I was young & couldn't really do anything else to help. She would always tell me "You should really go to school for this, you're really good!" & I would always just say she was the only person I would want to massage. Well in 2013 she sadly passed away and I felt so lost with life & where I was meant to go. After few years when I was 25 My best friend, knowing about my thought of massage, Found Lakewood School of Therapeutic Massage a school in Port Huron where I wouldn't have to worry about the Freeway traffic. (Was terrified back then to drive.) So I had no excuse holding me back anymore & like I said I took the leap!
I Started Luna right after I graduated, only doing it on the side. I recently decided to make Luna a full time Career & went part time at the spa I work at! I fell in love with massage & its benefits to people's life. Now all I want to do is give people the chance to experience it!
You will reap the benefits of massage if it becomes a regular part of your life. My goal is for us to work together to take better care of your health, long-term.

This will be for your upper body. It's great for headaches, shoulder pain and back pain! Massage Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient art of cupping therapy. While massage performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative pressure to pull, lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues. 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of deep tissue! Cupping marks can last on the body anywhere from 2-14 days
Esto sera para la parte superior de su cuerpo. Es ideal para dolores de cabeza, de hombros y de espalda. El masaje con ventosas es una adaptación moderna del antiguo arte de la terapia con ventosas.

Las marcas de ventosas pueden durar entre 2 a 14 dias.
