Prepare to be balanced.
Prepare to be balanced.
At Zen Spa, we embrace purity for peace, calmness, tranquility and balance.
Zen Spa opened its doors mainly to share the noble Eastern philosophical, art of balancing, called "touch therapy." It is inspired by yin and yang balance theory.
Research supports when the body is out of balance diseases arise resulting in pain (inflammation), heart and brain failure (stress) and even cancers (stress). Almost all diseases can be eradicated by simple healthy meals, daily exercise and consistent balance therapies such as massages, meditations -- which is a form of prayer, yoga (just to name a few). Which in my opinion, may radically improve quality of life.

She's a native of Guyana, a small English speaking country along the Atlantic Ocean in South America. She relocated to North America over two decades ago, and now its home away from home.
How Zen came into fuation
Wll it all began in NYC two decades ago, she was accepted with honors into Pace University in New York City. There, she studied and completed degrees in Business Management, Finance and minored in Law. Her initial interest was Investment Banking, Law or Medicine. However, after the terrors of 911, she realized a different path was her calling and moved to Asia in search of tranquility. She wanted more out of life itself, a simpler life, even. So, she followed her heart into healing touch, as it was a rescuer -- pure positive harmony during those years of recovering from 911. She does not always acknowledge it, but ineed she is a survivor, several of her co-workers lost their lives at the same investment firm she worked for -- Morgan Stanley in the North Tower. It's not a coincidence that she survived, its a blessing. Today, she works from that same place of compassion and grace God showed her on that painful day, God saved her life --- she's most grateful and humbled.
Life as she knew it, has changed, she vowed to spend the rest of her life in service to others. She began researching and studying everything about the Eastern Medical Therapy she was receiving -- a therapy that brought wholeness and balance back to her life. "This is it, she pundered, imagine the millions more that can benefit from this sort of work?" And so the idea was born, as she began planing how to use it to help others. Thus, the journey to Zen began! To her, establishing Zen Spa was and truly is a dream come true.
She relocated back to United States with Eastern training in hands and a mission in mind. She went on to attend and graduated summa cum laude from The Medical Arts School of Medical Massage Therapy in Raleigh, NC, followerd by Pre-Med from the University of North Carolina. She now maintains North Carolina State Licensed Body Therapist (10165) and a Nationally Certified, Board Certified Therapist. She holds certifications in modalities in Nuat Boran (Thai-Bodywork), Reflexology, Deep Asian, Fertility, Qi-Gong, Ashiatsu to name a few.
