Augusta (off Mondays)

Hannah was born in Omaha, Nebraska but was raised in Utah until she was sixteen. Hannah participated in multiple athletics as a youth, which sparked her interest in the human body. At the age of sixteen she moved to Aiken, South Carolina to pursue her dream of competing in the Olympics as an equestrian. Hannah attended high school online which allowed her to train during the days. Due to unforeseen circumstances Hannah had to put her passion on the back burner to address an illness in her family. In experiencing the trauma of said illness, Hannah developed her passion for health, wellness, and healing.


In combination with her particular interest in anatomy Hannah pursued the career of massage therapy immediately following her high school graduation.  She completed a 600-hour program at Augusta School of Massage while working as a receptionist at multiple spas. Her education included lecture classes in Anatomy and Physiology, Pathology, Kinesiology, and Business ethics. Her modality classes included swedish, deep tissue, myofascial, reflexology, prenatal, spa treatments and orthopedic. She also completed over 200 hours of clinical massages before graduation. Since receiving her massage license in 2017 Hannah has taken continuing education courses in lower body nerve entrapment presented by James Waslowski. Hannah worked previously as a Massage Therapist at Massage Envy. She is looking forward to expanding her knowledge and experience in a field that she loves.
