Sharon Dean, PH.D., Licensed massage therapist, owner

Massage therapy has always been part of my life. My father was an Osteopathic physician and showed me numerous techniques that he used to relax and give pain relief to his patients with chronic illnesses. I observed how massage helped many of his patients with cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, sports injuries and those who were elderly. I have always been convinced that a healing touch can help patients in almost any circumstance. In 2014, I decided to leave my museum career to pursue my passion. I recently completed my studies at Columbus State. I am now licensed in massage therapy and certified in Trigger Point work and Oncology Massage. Read More


Jayne Kelley, esthetician & Studio Manager

I’m a librarian turned esthetician, and taking care of your skin is my job.  My training in the research field has prepared me to become your resource for all things beauty.  I became passionate about makeup several years ago and my infatuation for skin care followed soon after, as makeup can only look as good as the skin underneath.  I feel so lucky to be dedicated to making people feel good about themselves.  It’s truly the best part of the job.  Check out our esthetics service menu for updates, as we’re continuously adding new services.



Alternative healing methods such as massage, herbal medicines, aromatherapy, etc. make more sense to me than most things in this world. I began my holistic journey at the Healing Arts Institute (a.k.a Orion Institute) in Perrysburg, Ohio studying therapeutic massage. I believe in the body’s ability to heal itself mentally, physically, and energetically. I love assisting the body in the process and being a part of a solution that reaches the core of the problems. Stretching, movement, and kneading to restore and aid the body’s natural healing process is so important to me, mainly because movement is life!


KARIANNE CISEK, licensed massage therapist

Powerful practices like holistic healing, mindfulness, and setting an intention have always captured my interest. Massage therapy allows me to activate these practices. I intend to be mindful during my practice and help my clients let go of stress by bringing their bodies and minds back to a place of true relaxation. I recently earned my massage therapy certificate at Columbus State Community College and I am very excited to begin my practice at Embody Health and Wellness. Read More



I have always been interested in the healing aspects of alternative medicine. I believe strongly in the mind and body connection. It started with my family practicing reiki and other forms of energy work. I become interested in massage therapy after an ACL injury when I was younger. During the recovery period from the surgery, I received reiki and massage from a family member while I was in physical therapy. While attending Columbus State I rediscovered yoga, reiki, and other holistic practices. I started looking into massage therapy programs and transferred to Miami-Jacobs . I received my certificate in 2015. Read more
