Meet Jenny, Massage Manager and Massage Therapist at Spa Vargas Wellness. She strives to develop a professional, client-centered atmosphere. Using her skills to provide a bodywork treatment focused on relaxation, pain relief, rehabilitation, and recovery from injury. Her goal for each client is for them to leave in a better state than when they came in.
What is the biggest inspiration about your career?
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and I provide therapy in the form of massage. Most people expect the spa to be purely relaxing, which it can be, but when I provide relief to clients with lower back pain or can relieve a chronic headache it sheds light that they don’t have to always go see a chiropractor or physical therapist. That the spa setting is therapeutic, as well.
Describe a time when you exceeded your guest’s expectations.
I have had countless times where I get first time massage go-er’s and they are pretty skeptical. After the massage they exclaim how they thought before it was just “back rubbing” and they didn’t know how they went their whole lives without a massage. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that as a Licensed Massage Therapist, I’m continually making a difference in people lives.
What is your favorite massage related tip that you share with your guests for self-care?
Self massage. It’s been said that rubbing your own shoulders for 10 minutes 5 times a day is equivalent to the outcome of having a professional hour long massage.
What is your favorite thing about Spa Vargas Wellness?
The environment. Our goals for guests are to Relax, Refresh, and Rejuvenate, and on countless occasions I have left work feeling the same way that we want our guest to feel when they leave Spa Vargas Wellness.
