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.
CHELSEA YOUNT, LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
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
TABATHA HERRON, LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
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
Diana Deuschle, Yoga Instructor
I started practicing yoga in 2000, initially to help me overcome chronic pain and anxiety due to a car accident. Yoga helped ease my pain and calm my mind as well as release the tension and stress I was experiencing. Yoga is a wonderful way to stretch and lengthen the body. My passion lies in helping others obtain the same benefits. I completed my 200 RYT training through Yoga Alliance, achieved my Mindfulness Meditation from Yoga International and have completed Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training. I create a welcoming environment for students to learn at their own pace to meet their individual goals. I use props to help modify poses and offer variations to help accommodate all my students.
Karen HutTsell, Yoga instructor
Looking to reduce stress and gain a sense of calmness after a long corporate day job, I found that yoga eased my tension. In 2018, I completed my 200 hour certification as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) as a way to encourage others to find ways to calm the mind and body. I personally enjoy helping students find their own practice whether they are a new to yoga or someone who has been practicing for an extended period of time.
colleen melville, Yoga Instructor
Colleen found yoga after spending too much time being stressed. Learning how to breathe through difficult poses on the mat, she has also learned how to breathe through difficult "poses" in life. Through her teaching, you will see that any pose is possible over time. In fact, Colleen is still working on poses. Because yoga, much like life is never perfect, it's never "done." From your time with her, you will not only learn how to breathe and move through your poses, but you will also learn that balance is something important both on and off the mat.
Amanda ritchey, yoga instructor
I started my yoga journey as a way to get back in shape after baby #2. Little did I realize at the time that yoga is so much more than the asanas (postures) that we see on TV and Instagram. The mental, spiritual and physical benefits I received from yoga were so life-changing, I went on to complete my 200 hour RYT training at Burn Within Yoga in Grove City. I am excited to bring my love of yoga to those in my Hilliard community.
