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, relaxed, kind professional that understands that time is about you. You will experience a beautiful office and treatment room equipped with soft lighting, music and the sound of water. The massage table is heated (if you like), the sheets are of high quality, the table and space is always sanitized between clients, and only the purest essential oils available on the market are utilized during massage. Best of all, you will have a therapist that knows how to be quiet during your session so that you can relax.
