Dawn Hege - NC LMBT #13832
I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to improve their access to and knowledge of self care. Many people who are seeking ways to stay healthy find that we therapists make a great resource for learning more body awareness and the benefits of bodywork for staying active and feeling fully alive. I also like to focus on addressing compensatory issues that develop when people are recovering from injuries, surgery, or the demands of life!

Jean Rowe, NC LMBT #8356
Sometimes a simple sentence says it all: “You’re better than a cortisone shot.” Knowing my profession helps so many people puts a smile on my face and pep in my step. One of my greatest pleasures is to surprise a customer who comes to the first session with minimal expectations regarding the benefits of massage. By the time they leave, they are in awe. I want each person’s experience to be their own. I bring a skill from every experience I’ve gathered and I’m eager to practice that skill with you. Welcome to my table! >> Learn more about Jean Rowe
Yolanda Grant - NC LMBT #11390
“My passion for massage began in highschool when I worked with my brother’s gymnastics team. My first massage I ever did was working on the neck and upper back assisting with detailed upper body treatments. We helped prevent accidents and kept the team in the game! Present day, I am drawn to assisting muscles heal themselves therapeutically. I am the muscle whisperer. Eat, sleep, massage, REPEAT!”
One of Yolanda’s passions is working with the geriatric population because this population is often forgotten. They also need that healing touch and it can help them feel like they are not alone. Yolanda is a proud mother of four and she loves visiting with her five grand babies! >> Learn more about Yolanda Grant.
Tom Maxson, NC LMBT #17313
I practice massage therapy and reflexology to help my clients achieve whatever goals they have for themselves and to cope with the stressful world we live in. Bodywork and Footwork can encourage balance, improve flexibility, improve sleep, optimize performance and calm the mind- if I can share a fraction of that potential with people who need those results, I consider it a job well done. I’m honored to be included in the Hands on Health team, because of the high standard of professionalism and integrity that is practiced here. In my 15 years as a licensed professional, I’m extremely grateful to have had opportunities to work with people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds and always aim to create an atmosphere of respect, comfort and compassion, for whomever is in need of relief on my table. >> Learn more about Tom Maxson
Nicole Bermeo - NC LMBT #13040
I enjoy working with people that have never received massage before. For many people, the idea of a stranger touching them may seem daunting to many, but I like to be the one to educate them that receiving regular massage doesn’t have to be scary. I like to inform new comers that professionals respect boundaries and are committed to open communication. Many of the people that have never received massage before are those who are limited from language barrier, understandably. I enjoy working with those from the Latinx community that are more comfortable speaking Spanish than English.
