Graduating in 2009 from Alpha School of Massage Therapy in Jacksonville, FL, Shawnel finished school with 900 hrs. of training and over 300 massages performed on the public. She has training in Swedish, Neuromuscular, Reflexology, Hot Stone, and Chair Massage. Pain Management Massage is a skill she is always cultivating.
Through ongoing research and practical application, Shawnel has seen impressive results in reducing, and often eliminating neck and lower back pain. Tailoring her sessions to fit each client, she blends her intuition with the skills and techniques she has picked up along the way.
Arriving in the southeast by way of southern California 8 yrs. ago, Shawnel realized at a young age that she was extremely good with her hands. As she grew up, she spent time massaging family and friends. It was not until she was in her early 20's that Massage Therapy was presented to her as a career move. Having an innate understanding of the importance of touch, it made perfect sense to her. Always a student, she strives to learn, grow, and gain knowledge through her clients and work as a Massage Therapist.
