My name is Shannon W. I am originally from Nashville, TN, but have lived in AZ since 1998. My main loves are my dog, my cat, and my love of adventure. A big portion of my day is spent organizing my dog’s social calendar. Once I’ve completed that, I like to find a recreational dance class (nothing too serious) or some other movement class. I also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities – I took up paddle boarding last year, and I can’t wait to get back to it when it’s warm out. It’s a great way to get some sun, some exercise, and explore some of the beautiful AZ nature surrounding us.
I have been a massage therapist for 20 years and have taught massage since 2011. I enjoy the one-on-one attention I get to give my clients – something I think is so crucial in the wellness world. I also love the opportunity to see how regular massage offers wonderful relief and results for people who receive it. When I originally sought to do massage, I had never even received one. I just thought it was something I might be good at. What has kept me most engaged over the years is the ongoing desire to learn and apply new techniques and knowledge with my clients. I have studied many different modalities and work to incorporate them into each treatment I offer. I do not view massage with a cookie-cutter approach. I love to hear my clients’ needs before each session and apply what I know to help them the best I can on an individual basis. I enjoy a variety of techniques – from light to deep, energetic to physical. I enjoy finding what works best for a person on any given day. I am excited to be a part of Hawaiian Experience Spa. Learning Lomi Lomi massage and meeting and working with new people is another exciting and fun adventure for me. I look forward to growing with this company.
