About Us

Our mission is to restore integrity to an ancient form of healing through trust and professionalism while providing a peaceful, safe place to rest and restore yourself.

Our Business Philosophy

Massage is most effective when you are able to relax your mind and body. If you are worried about the therapist, cleanliness, noise or safety, you will not have a favorable experience or receive the therapy that led you there.

At Pivotal Pathway Massage Therapy, you can expect to meet a non-smoking, licensed, fully trained and tenured professional that understands that time is about you. You will experience a staff that has high quality skillsets, customized focus and attention on your objectives. We use therapeutic grade essential oils (Young Living) and hot towels at no extra charge. The table, linens and space are always sanitized between clients. Best of all, you will experience a tenured therapist that knows how to be quiet during your session so that you can relax.
