Tara Swenson, Owner/LMT

After five years of establishing relationships in Anacortes, Tara was ready to grow roots and open her own day spa. With 18 years of experience, Tara has developed a natural intuitive touch. Using integrated massage techniques ranging from Thai yoga stretches, passive range of motion stretching, medical massage, deep tissue and trigger point therapy. It’s her passion—or some might say obsession.

She is fortunate enough to be surrounded by like-minded therapists who strive to achieve our business’s promise since 2011: To provide an exceptional experience and personal care that nurtures your spirit; thereby encouraging you to further enjoy your life.
