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.

DrewMassage Therapist, LMT
I’m 12 years into my career as massage therapist since beginning in 2011, and I still find joy in every single session. I find massage to be both gratifying and humbling, and I love to meet and work with others. I’ve studied a variety of modalities over the last decade, working extensively with athletes, injuries, and fitness aficionados, as well as those with headaches or in need of localized pain relief, both acute and chronic.

Depending on your goals, my sessions may include a mix of deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, orthopedic massage, or sport’s stretching, with traditional bodywork mixed in to maintain a steady “flow.” Of course, the power of stress is real, so sometimes the best treatment is to set aside some “you time” to activate your parasympathetic nervous system, encourage the release of our “rest and digest” endorphins, and help to promote wellness, bringing the body to a calmed, relaxed state.

I’m currently in school as an Exercise Science major, though in my spare time I enjoy traveling, writing, live music, and hiking, as well as being a lover of all thing’s history and literature. I very much look forward to working with you!

AaronMassage Therapist, LMT
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, LMT
*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.

JanetMassage Therapist, LMT
Over my 30+ years as a massage therapist I have been able to utilize a wide range of different modalities, but I particularly specialize in neuromuscular therapy, TMJ work, myofascial release, reiki and lymphatic drainage. I love my career and anything that allows me to work with my hands.
On top of using my hands, I love being creative. In my free time I enjoy doing origami and working in my yard.
