Tara Swenson, Owner/LMT

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.

Megan Gardner, LMT

After working 6+ years in a busy high end spa, Megan is excited to now create the deeper, ongoing, more individualized therapeutic connections that she’s found to be her passion.  

Using a variety of techniques from Swedish to deep tissue, it is Megan’s goal to not only melt away the tension in your muscles – but to melt away the everyday stress of life as well!

As a long time resident of Sedro-Woolley Megan is looking forward to bringing her skills to Anacortes and the surrounding areas she loves.  When not working Megan can usually be found at one of her kids’ sporting events, doing puzzles, or curling up with one of her cats and a delicious cup of coffee.
