Gwen attended Spa Tech Institute in Ipswich, MA, and has been in the field of massage therapy for about 3 and a half years. She looks forward to the daily opportunity she has, as a therapist, to decrease her clients’ pain and stress and increase their overall health. She chose massage therapy because “it is a very rewarding career.” While Gwen’s acquired modalities include deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, sports massage, and trigger point therapy, deep tissue and Swedish massage are her favorites to perform.
