New Massage center offers to train couples

Also: Mental health facility expands
by: Wayne Grant Real Estate Editor

Ormond Beach Massage has opened at 533 N Nova Rd, Suite 216, across from Rainbow Park.

“I find it ironic that we evacuated from Texas due to Hurricane Harvey in August, 2017, and almost exactly two years later, we have opened our massage therapy practice in Ormond Beach just in time for Hurricane Dorian,” said Suzanne Waldrep, who owns the business along with Scott Waldrep. “I am originally from Florida so when we evacuated here to stay with family members in Ormond Beach, we never went back to Texas.”

The couple concentrate on customized, therapeutic massage techniques and also offer hot stone, deep tissue, sports, prenatal and more.

They would like to focus on couples’ massage training to help couples connect and reconnect. Couples will learn to focus on their partner’s needs and problem areas such as chronic neck or back pain, a press release stated. “Helping your partner in this way brings about feelings of appreciation and helps partners to strengthen their bond,” she said.
