Welcome to Tranquility

Holistic Body Therapy 
in Durham, NC

About Us

Welcome to our practice! John and Kerri are dedicated practitioners who bring an educated, thoughtful, and organic approach to massage and somatic therapy. With a genuine passion for helping clients on their wellness journey, they meet individuals where they are in life and strive to understand their aspirations. Deeply caring for their clients, John and Kerri embrace diversity, working with people from all walks of life who seek a profound experience of living in their bodies and integrating mindfulness and movement.

Their clientele includes professionals such as students, physicians, nurses, and educators, as well as anyone with an interest in enhancing their health and wellness through bodywork. Operating from a private practice allows them to uphold a higher standard of personalization, ensuring that each session is tailored to meet the unique needs of the individual.

John and Kerri's approach is characterized by its organic and open-ended nature, allowing flexibility to better address clients' evolving needs. Rather than adhering to set sequences or 'types' of bodywork, they work within multiple modalities simultaneously. Their commitment to depth of presence and kindness creates a therapeutic environment where clients can lead the way in their healing journey. Join us for a transformative experience that goes beyond traditional massage and somatic therapies.

In short, our goal is to get to know YOU, 

to help you heal, overcome, and build the life you want and how you want to feel in your body. 

Sure, we've had a lot of training, but building lasting connections with our clients is our top priority. It brings us great joy when clients, including their family members choose to work with us. And even children we've known since before they were born work with us, and now we have the privilege of helping them learn optimal stretching for ballet and soccer!
