Meet Our Therapists

Shannon O'Connell

Massage Therapist

I have been a Massage Therapist for 11 years, and the fulfillment I get from helping my clients rediscover their muscles and how they should move is phenomenal. Muscles do speak to the therapist and they will show where I need to go. I feel bodywork is a very intuitive and a team effort between therapist and client.
During Covid I decided to continue my education becoming a Reiki Master, Lomi Lomi, Cupping, Myofascial, Kinesiotaping for Trigger Points, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Pre-Natal, Hot Stone, Swedish, Trigger Point Therapy. I find continuous education is important in an ever evolving career.
I went to  Salter School in Massachusetts where I moved from and am excited to see where my love of massage therapy will take me.

Benjamin Greer

Massage Therapist

Ben has been working as a Massage Therapist in the DMV for over 7 years. He believes that both the mind and body need to take time to heal, and thrives to make every massage both relaxing and therapeutic. By combining myofascial techniques, trigger point therapy, and assisted stretching, Ben aims to give your body the work it needs, while giving your mind time to rest. When he is not practicing massage Ben is on the dance floor, at the gym, or rough housing with one of his pit bulls, so he knows the importance of a recovery routine.
