Shawnte' has been practicing Massage for 21 years in multiple settings including chiropractic, sports rehabilitation, private practice, wellness center, luxury spa, as well as franchise setting and franchise management. She is a Massage Therapy instructor, focused on clinical massage application. The various settings have given Shawnte' a strong perspective on caring for clients, importance of a strong kinesiology & anatomy foundation as well as how to integrate evidence based techniques to customize treatment plans for helping clients feel better.

I began my career as an Exercise Physiologist in Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation. This experience was important in my career, my work as I earned my certificate as a Massage Practitioner from Potomac Massage Training Institute was built upon rehabilitation and corrective therapies. After practicing Massage for 14 years I began to teach with Rising Spirit Institute in Atlanta GA, then Albany Therapeutic Education Center.  I have had experience practicing in the Chiropractic setting, sports rehabilitation, luxury spa, franchise management and private practice. I am an Approved Provider with NCBTMB and teach private courses building technique within clinics in the Hampton Roads area and instructing courses with Centura College. I love what I do and I never feel as though I am working, just sharing love and light.
