Meet Our Practitioners

CaraOwner, LMT, Wellness Coach
My path to opening Vinings Massage with my husband has been a long one. After working in marine conservation, then owning and running a small organic vegetable farm, I started experiencing some health problems. Seeking a holistic approach, I found myself a massage therapist who helped me manage the anxiety and pain that comes along with illness. Through this relationship, I discovered, first hand, the extraordinary benefits of Massage Therapy. After recovering and regaining strength, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in holistic healthcare.

Providing the space and support for people to create wellness in their lives as well as a place for individual practitioners to thrive has become my passion. I love doing all types of massage, and specialize in working with people experiencing cancer and chronic illness. I also perform Pre- and Post-natal Massage, along with massage for anxiety, stress, and pain relief. I am also a Health and Wellness Coach, which enables me to help men and women move through the experience of life with control and ease

Kathryn LMT, PT
My journey began as a licensed physical therapist in 1990 with a focus in orthopedics, manual therapy, and pain management. After experiencing the benefits of massage myself, I too became licensed in massage therapy in 2000. Since then I have enjoyed integrating all I’ve learned into a compassionate practice that honors and supports you on your path to wellness.

Each session begins with a few minutes of assessment of and conversation around your specific needs and how our session can best benefit you. Modalities I may incorporate include myofascial release, positional release, active isolated stretching, breath work, movement reeducation, manual lymphatic drainage, scar management, acupressure, energy balancing, and craniosacral therapy.

After undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 2018, I have a newfound passion for supporting others who may be going through or recovering from cancer treatment. I understand the anxiety and challenges that people with cancer and our caregivers experience. I know the support massage can bring and have since completed advanced training in oncology massage.

When I’m not with clients, you can find me outdoors teaching as a naturalist, volunteering for a therapeutic horseback riding program, canoeing, meditating, or simply enjoying nature.

Drew, Massage Therapist
DrewMassage Therapist, LMT
I am proud to say that after working as a full time Massage Therapist for 11 years, I still find joy in every massage. While I’ve studied a variety of modalities over the course of my career, I have specialized in working with fitness aficionados, athletes, and/or in direct pain relief, both acute and chronic.

My massage sessions incorporate a mix of neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, and orthopedic massage, with some traditional bodywork thrown in to maintain a consistent “flow.” Of course, sometimes the best “treatment” is simply a nice, relaxing, Swedish session, complimented by some light reflexology and a dash of aromatherapy.

I’m currently in school as an Exercise Science major, though in my [limited] spare time I enjoy traveling, film, live music, and other outdoor activities, as well as being a lover of all things history and literature. Thank you for your time and I very much look forward to working with you!!

Erin, Massage Therapist
ErinMassage Therapist, LMT
I’m a massage therapist with nine years of experience providing a variety of massage modalities. I have a sincere passion for prenatal massage. I think pregnancy is beautiful, and to be able to relieve some of the stress of pregnancy for a mother is deeply rewarding.

I also specialize in Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), a massage technique that stimulates lymphatic flow using gentle skin-stretching which helps transport the swollen lymph to non swollen areas (decongestant). MLD increases lymph production, and the drainage of lymph which carries waste products away from the tissues and back towards the heart.

Outside of massage therapy, I enjoy cooking and crafting in my free time!

It’s my hope that, as your massage therapist, I can relieve your stress and discomfort, enabling you to lead a more joyful and full day-to-day life!”

Hi. My name is Aaron and I have been a licensed massage therapist for over 7 years. I take great pride in my craft which is to make and keep people feeling great. I am a strong believer in kindness, positive energy and listening to my clients’ needs. Trained in an array of modalities ranging from deep tissue techniques and sports massage to relaxing Swedish massage, I am confident that together we can craft the perfect massage for you. I also have more specialized experience working with those who suffer from scoliosis, fibromyalgia, TMJ, and lupus just to name a few.

In my down time I enjoy working out, finding healthy ways to stay looking young and feeling the same, and watching Boston sports. Overall, I’m an easy going, kind hearted, generous young man willing to help people get their muscles feeling good and maintain a less stressful life. If I sound like that type of person you would enjoy working with, you know where to find me.

*Anne is not currently seeing clients at our Wellness Center. She sees our hospital based clients and helps keep the wellness center running smoothly.

I have been providing massage therapy and bodywork since 2006. Having learned from many great healers over the course of my massage career, I have found it beneficial to incorporate several different styles into a single session. I have received advanced training in: Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release, and Oncology Massage, but I am also skilled in Swedish, Deep Tissue, NMT, Foot Reflexology, and Indian Head Massage.

My career has led me to contract with corporate offices, sports agencies, film studios, chiropractic offices, hospitals, and luxury spas. When I am not practicing massage therapy you can find me volunteering in my community, enjoying a cup of coffee, or hiking one of Georgia’s beautiful trails.
