Elizabeth is the founder of Oak Essentials Wellness and was the only massage therapist here for over 14 years. She graduated from the Body Therapy Institute and has been a practicing massage therapist since 2007. She has received Certification in Reflexology, Prenatal, and many other types of massage therapy practices. She prides herself on her knowledge of Massage Therapy and its effects on the human body.

She truly views massage as a way to treat and heal various ailments. She is also well versed in the use of therapeutic grade essential oils to do everything from treat chronic muscle pain to providing a full body detox.

Hunter

North Carolina Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

Hunter graduated from Maiden School of Massage & Bodywork Therapy in 2023 and has since been practicing massage therapy since May of the same year. His decision to embark on this career path was sparked by a desire to leave the corporate environment, where he felt like just another number. Hunter was eager to be involved in a profession where he could truly help people and make a meaningful impact daily, which led him to massage therapy! He enjoys providing assistance to individuals that are dealing with injuries or other concerns. He says that one of the best feelings is seeing someone stand up after a massage therapy session with reduced or no pain! 

Hunter likes to be a problem-solver for his clients, so he particularly enjoys the therapeutic side of massage therapy where he gets to help clients address and alleviate specific issues. He is experienced with deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy. Hunter is ecstatic to become the fourth massage therapist here at Oak Essentials Wellness - and we are even more ecstatic to have him here! He has enjoyed creating connections with new clients and cannot wait to forge new connections with more clients.

Outside of his professional role, Hunter leads an active and varied lifestyle. He plays in multiple adult sports leagues, loves golf and trivia, and enjoys doing activities with his 2 children like putt putt, going to movies, and going to the zoo!

What We Do

Customize Each Session

The first thing we ask is always: “how is your body?” – and we truly want to know. We will customize each session to fit your needs.

Let You Get Comfortable

Your massage therapist will instruct you to lay either face up or face down and they will exit the room. You may then undress to your comfort level. We recommend taking everything except for your bottom undergarments off, especially if you would like your legs and feet to be included in your massage. Once you are ready, lay on the table completely under the sheets & blankets.

Begin Massage

Your therapist will knock on the door and ask if you are ready. Feel free to express if you are ready for them to enter the room or if you need more time to get comfortable. Once you are ready, your massage therapist will enter the room and your session will begin.

Schedule Your Session

Feeling confident that this is the right place for you and your massage therapy needs? Call us at 704-830-4475 to get scheduled. Our receptionist, Courtney, will assist you in scheduling your appointment. If this is your first time scheduling with us, we do require our clients to keep a card on file to secure your spot. This policy directly connects to our cancellation and no show policies.
