Your Massage Therapy Team

Who We Are

The Tranquility Company is a local family-owned and operated business  of two world-class massage therapists, John & Kerri, dedicated to creating and maintaining truly personalized massage therapy experiences, in a cozy and unhurried environment.
We offer our studio and practice as a place of solace and safety.
We are LGBTQIA+ confirming and body positive. 

How we work

John & Kerri offer an educated, thoughtful, and organic approach to meeting their clients where they are in life and finding out where they want to be. They care deeply for their clients and enjoys working with people from all walks of life, especially those who are seeking a deeper experience of living in a body and how to integrate mindfulness and movement. They see many professional students, physicians, nurses, and educators – generally anyone with an interest in improving their health and wellness through bodywork.

​Their approach to massage therapy is organic and open-ended to better meet their clients’ needs. They enjoy being in private practice as they are better able to meet this higher standard of personalization. One of their principles is working within many modalities at once instead of set sequences or ‘types’ of bodywork. They bring depth of presence and kindness to their work, and follow their clients’ leads as they work.
