About Metta Day Spa

"metta"
The word "metta" is an ancient Pali term that means loving kindness towards one's self and towards others. It's a philosophy, a lifestyle, built on the principles of compassion and kindness.

Gina graduated from Core Institute of Massage Therapy in 2006. She has a passion for working with people to make them feel better in their bodies. Whether they need relaxation or deeper body work, she believes both can be equally beneficial depending on the individual needs of each client. Gina continues to expand her massage education, most recently studying Traditional Thai massage & Swe-Thai massage under the teachings of Margie Meshew. She has studied Pregnancy massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Facelift massage, and is a Reiki level 1 practitioner. Gina is currently a student of Many Rivers 200 HR Yoga Teacher Training program, expected to complete in October 2014.

Massage and owning a business is a second career for Gina. She graduated from Valdosta State University in 1998 with a B.A. degree in Sociology and Human Services. She worked several desk jobs before entering the graduate program in Counseling through Webster University. It was there that she decided she wanted a more “hands-on” (literally) approach to helping people feel better. Gina grew up playing team sports and with a love for exercise and body mechanics; and she loved going to spas and receiving therapeutic massage. So it was a natural fit for her to study massage therapy, and to open a business working with a team of massage therapists/body workers and spa professionals. She is grateful for the love and support of her husband, family, friends and excellent co-workers she’s met along the way that have made Metta grow from notes on a pad to the reality that it is today!

I began practicing massage in 1993, combining an interest in fitness and wellness. Drawing from exploration in several modalities, I practice with the intent to assist in the body's natural healing process. A session may involve any combination of long, flowing strokes associated with Swedish and Esalen,Thai rhythmic compression and stretching, sedative hot stones, subtle cranial sacral work, or reflexology. I try to give a multidimensional treatment that relaxes, as well as invigorates the receiver.

Will’s vision for watching and helping people move has been a passion and an occupation for more than ten years. Will became familiar with yoga in 1997 through the teachings of Robyn Ceballes, Vinyasa Yoga Instructor. After attending the Core Institute 600 HR Integrated Myofascial Program in 2005, Will continued his study in body-work, travelling to Thailand to study Thai massage with Master Prischet Boonthunme. In 2012, Will began studying under myofascial mastership of John Barnes. Currently, Will is doing the KM,  Kinesis Myofascial Integration, training with Tom Myers.

In Will’s yoga career of eight years he has studied under the teachings of Don & Amber Stapleton, author of Self Awakening Yoga; the teachings of Swami Satchidananda, Tias Little & Rusty Wells. Students appreciate Will’s unique ability to infuse his playful & flowing Vinyasa with yoga philosophy, technical alignment and heart felt humor.

In every class, Shena strives to find that perfect balance between effort and ease. Originally drawn to yoga as a “workout” alternative, she quickly found that the “work-in” was what continued to bring her to class time and again. Her love of yoga and its benefits drew her to Many Rivers YTT in Tallahassee, Florida, where she completed her 200 hour teaching program, joined Yoga Alliance, and started GetBentYoga.org. Various styles of yoga were studied at Many Rivers including vinyasa flow, Ashtanga (the original power yoga), hot and yin yoga, as well as the history and philosophy at the foundation of traditional yoga.
Although originally drawn to a more active challenging flow class, her 200YTT opened her to the joys of different yoga disciplines and now she claims they are all her favorite. Her personal practice of the day could be an active flow class or a relaxing yin or restorative class dependent on what the mind and body need. In this rush of a world we live in today, having the space to explore stillness and breath, and to find that inward turning is incredibly important. Her goal is, and will continue to be, to share the peace, strength, and flexibility that comes from a regular yoga practice.

Sue has been massaging her whole life, literally. She started around the age of 10, when she found that she could relieve aches and pains for family by touch and massage. She continued helping family and friends throughout her life and in 2006 decided to enter into massage as a career. She graduated from Florida College of Natural Health in 2008. “This is my passion, not a job, because I enjoy helping people.” She has experience in aromatherapy, reflexology, medical massage, trigger point therapy, cryotherapy, hot stone massage, deep tissue, sports massage, spa (relaxation) massage, lymphatic, scar tissue removal, cross fiber friction and many other modalities.

June has practiced yoga for about 6 years. She graduated with her 200-hour teacher training certification with Many Rivers Yoga in Tallahassee in October 2015. The biggest indicators of change in her life since practicing yoga have been a greater awareness of the importance of being present. Yoga has helped with a stronger body, mind and spirit (and flexibility). June's personal credence as a yoga instructor is to provide a safe, relaxed atmosphere for people to explore breath and movement in order to become more in touch with their bodies and to foster peace of mind. It is her desire to help others find their inner strength and grace on their mats so that they can bring these attributes into their daily lives. June spent 15 years as the production manager for the opera at the FSU College of Music before moving to Thomasville. She is now an adjunct professor at the FSU College of Education, and works in the Humanities Division at Thomas University. She and her husband, Grady Enlow, who also works at TU, share their home with two fur babies, Gilbert and Sullivan.
