Gift Some Body Work
Mythic Massage - Winner of QC Nerve's "Best Massage Shop" in 2019 (and runner up this year), Mythic (owned by Maks) is a wonderful option for bodywork in Charlotte. Lots of us on the Nourish team get work there ourselves. To Maks, massage is not just about helping someone feel temporary relief from pain or stress. It’s about helping them make changes that will prevent overwhelming pain and stress in the future. Contact them for gift certificates and give the gift of feeling great!
Janice Peery - Janice has been a licensed massage therapist for over a decade, having graduated from Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage. She specializes in Neuromuscular, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal and Hot Stone massages. In addition, Janice is certified in Thai Massage, Hospice Massage, Infant/Child Massage, Reflexology, Lymphatic Drainage and Reiki. The Nourish team loves seeing Janice for work and you can contact her for gift certificate options for the gift that keeps on giving.
