My passion for holistic healing practices and the Spirit-Mind-Body connection can be traced back to my Christian up-bringing. I am fascinated by the power of prayer with the laying on of hands.
During nursing school, I was drawn to psychiatric-mental health nursing and Hildegard Peplau’s theory of interpersonal relationships.
As a psychiatric-mental health nurse, I am an active participant in the therapeutic relationship with my patient. My primary tool is my use of self. I practice being present, actively listening and supporting my patient in his healing journey.
I am committed to promoting overall health and balance by offering Reiki healing sessions locally at Massage and Wellness Spa, and globally through Distant Reiki healing sessions.
Reiki is a spiritual healing practice facilitated by a light touch or hands hovering a few inches above your body. Reiki treatments address the whole body, not just individual symptoms. Reiki brings stress reduction, pain relief, decreased anxiety, promotes sleep, and improves digestion. Reiki supports our well-being and strengthens our natural ability to heal by encouraging balance.
Reiki requires no belief, simply the willingness to experience the healing benefits Reiki has to offer. A Reiki healing session is conducted on a standard massage table. You remain fully dressed for the session, so wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing.
During a Reiki session, your system shifts into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance. When the PNS is dominant, your body is in rest & digest mode. This means your body’s priority is to recover, to heal, to deeply nourish & restore itself.
I am proficient in Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention, and am always looking to challenge myself by teaching the program.
Tai Chi is an ancient practice proven to reduce pain and improve your mental and physical wellbeing.
Dr. Paul Lam developed the Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention program using gentle Sun Style Tai Chi routines that are safe, easy to learn and suitable for every fitness level.
Tai Chi will help you:
Improve balance and flexibility
Improve your overall mind, body and spirit.
Medical studies confirm the Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention program relieves pain, decreases falls and improves quality of life.
I am currently marketing a product that compliments the healing done during Reiki and Tai Chi sessions.
This technology is clinically proven to provide the body with a level of health and vitality that you haven’t experienced since you were in your youth.
I am so thankful for the therapy as it is relieving my pain and stressed muscles. I appreciate this place!!
I had a wonderful experience and left feeling great. Ty, ty,
I never get massages because I'm in constant pain since I was in a car accident, but my daughter gave me this one and I'm so glad I came! It was amazing, I loved my experience; everyone was super professional and we will come back
After my massage and candling yesterday I felt wonderful, I slept like a baby and I’m still feeling the benefits today. Thank you so much!! What a great experience.
Great couples massage! Hope to come back.
My massage was awesome! The place is nice and neat and I love how efficient the online booking and sign in process is. I haven?t felt so relaxed and pampered before- I had just the perfect amount of relaxation and deep tissue massage. I will be back and definitely recommend to all my friends.
Very courteous and attentive about my needs and pains from past injuries. I found this massage to be very helpful.
The experience was the best I have had other massages and no one has got my neck that it could turn while driving without the stiffness. Great work Danielle.
It was a wonderful 60 minutes! Perfect pressure & my many knots sure got loosen up. Looking forward to coming back the next time I’m in town.
Wonderful – already feel better.
Wonderful massage. He did an excellent job working on all my knots!!
I continue to get better. My flexibility is increasing and I am back playing golf on a fairly regular basis.
Very friendly staff, very clean and a place to relax. I enjoyed my massage. Hope to be back again soon. Would give this place a 5 star for sure.
Was a great massage.
Wonderful I’d like to take him home to Canada with me. He even could identify my posture issue and recommended what could be done. When asked a question he did not know the information on he did not hesitate to say he wasn’t familiar with that topic. The essential oil treatment was unbelievable. Highly recommend this spa and person.
Everything was terrific.
Great as always, took care of my shoulder
Great fix for my lower back and shoulder pain.
Absolutely 100% satisfied. Completely relaxed and refreshed. A great way to start the weekend. Will definitely be returning. Thank you so much.
Wonderful first time! Very happy with the full body massage!
Largo location had couples massage will be back again they have a wonderful staff and work well together
Great, relaxing place to forget all your troubles for a little while and enjoy a great massage. Highly recommended.
the massage was great. Felicia was awesome
Judy L Rhodes
It was awesome!
First time at massage and wellness SPA. Service was great, massage was better. Nice place if you
are looking for professional services.
As our first time visit we were very pleased with the excellent service.and definitely come back again!
We came to the spa for a couples massage and thoroughly enjoyed it! I am pregnant and it was my first time having a prenatal massage. It was hands down the absolute best massage I have ever had in my life and my husband would also agree! I would highly recommend this spa to anyone in the area!
Bree and Chris
Nice job. Was able to work out some of the "kink's" appearing in my neck!
Very experienced therapist. Felt rejuvenated after the massage. Would definitely book another massage with him.
Being out of town and after a long drive, a friend recommended Thomas to work out my kinks and pains. Not only was he successful, professional, and friendly, he taught me some exercises that would help me. I have more travel ahead of me and will come back through the Largo area for another visit on the way home. I only wish he was living and working in my hometown.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Massage and Wellness Spa. Massage was fabulous and very relaxing. I will definitely be recommending the spa to my friends and will be having more services done there.
I have been to massage and wellness 2 x now and both experiences have been amazing! Professional friendly service. Treat yourself and/or a friend.
Arielle was so professional. I had a Brazil wax and was very pleased with it!
BEST I have had!
Amazing, relaxing, wonderful!
5 Star ......*****.......off the charts...life changing ... fabulous in every way !!!!!!!!!!. Thomas is THE BEST massage therapist, because he is a physical therapist and he understands the anatomy and physiology of the body to the Nth degree. He is a great communicator and teacher, and has helped me understand my body better, why he does what he does .and has taught me stretches I can do at home in between appointments. I have never experienced such a dramatic improvement in my symptoms from any other practitioner. THANK YOU, THOMAS!!!
My massage was excellent,
Awesome. I really don't no what more to say.
My message was exactly what I needed!!
Very relaxing and would definitely recommend Massage & Wellness Spa to
In spite of our being very late, the staff was very kind, professional and gracious. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our massages and facials. The massage therapist asked good questions and knew just what to do to address our particular issues. We felt relaxed and renewed!
Grace Stalley & Paula Zellinger
Great massage!! Yes, I was sore the day after, but it was not unexpected. My knots and tights muscles were well worked on. I will be back!!
Arielle is warm, kind, and professional. The facial she gave me was delightful. Her touch was soothing and relaxing and the products left me with a wonderful clean and hydrated feeling. I highly recommend. Thank you Arielle!
I had the BEST massage EVER with Addy (sp?). I am a bit of a massage connoisseur and a lot like Goldilocks - I dont like it too hard or too soft - this massage was just right. Also Ive had other massages where the room temp wasnt right, there were odd smells (like the therapist had just smoked or ate onions for lunch etc...) or the music was too loud or odd or too much a of a talker. NOT THE CASE HERE! Everything was PERFECT! I had a kink in my neck from sleeping wrong which is why I went in. But she helped my TMJ and tennis elbow as well! I will make a monthly apt. with her and ditch my doctor! I used a groupon so I wasnt expecting much but WOW!!!!! Would HIGHLY recommend!!!!!!!!
We had a very relaxing time Saturday during our couples massage. Definitely coming back and recommending.
love the massage and interaction from the massage therapist, she was very friendly and engaging, made me feel very comfortable.
It is easy to make appointments and has good parking. All the staff is great and very knowledgeable. I have been coming for follow-ups each month for the last 6 months.
Victor A. Torres
I am very impressed with this place. It's clean and the massage tables are comfortable. I've been receiving massages for over 30 years and Thomas is the best. He listens to your issues and works within your tolerance level.
Great massage. Really enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful couples massage. The therapist were very professional.
Veronica was GREAT!!! will absolutely be back!! Look forward to future massages with her.
I went for a massage with Daniela recently. Don't let her young looks fool you. She is very experienced & hits the hi notes. She was punctual with my appointment time as well.
Great staff, great prices and convenient location.
A wonderful massage and facial yesterday! I will be back!
Had a wonderful relaxing 1 hour massage and 1 hour facial. Magic fingers for both of our therapists. Would definitely do it again.
Easy to schedule. Daniela Schiano did a great job balancing relaxation and deep tissue massage.

I have been purchasing massages for approximately 20 years and never had such a negative experience before.
First of all, I was misquoted on the price of the deep tissue massage by the front desk female who initially booked the appointment for me. After I was emailed paperwork from your spa, I noticed the discrepancy in price and immediately contacted the same front desk person. She assured me that she would adjust the error and that there was nothing to worry about. On Friday, 12/7/18, when I arrived for the actual massage, Danielle, the LMT, took her time coming into the room because she was busy talking to someone.
When she finally came in to get started, I not only confirmed with her that the deep tissue massage was supposed to be for 90 minutes but also confirmed the starting and stop time. In reality, the deep tissue massage turned out to be for 80 minutes.
When it came time to pay for my service, Danielle started arguing with me about the price that I had been originally quoted for the deep tissue massage. I advised her to go and speak with the front desk person but she informed that she had already left. Then I asked to speak with the spa manager, but Danielle said that there was nobody else there.
When I went to pay Danielle with my credit card, she didn’t realize that I ALWAYS tip in cash, regardless of whether it’s a waiter, waitress, hairstylist, manicurist, LMT, etc. Right away, Danielle started berating me that I wasn’t going to tip her, which I swear was not my intent.
When I left your spa that day, I called two different numbers requesting a call back, but I never received any response from anyone. That speaks volumes about the quality of service that you provide.
Catherine M. Dempsey
My first skin service here and Arielle was very considerate to be sure I was comfortable during the procedure and explained the service and other services in detail. Looking forward to my next appointment.
My massage was great. I would defiantly recommend this place. I will be back for another massage in the future. Thank you.
My wife purchased this as a surprise gift - and it was awesome. Daniela did a wonderful job and was knowledgeable and professional. She talked about what she was doing and asked questions to further understand my problem areas. We were in town on holiday, but I would definitely recommend this service to anyone. The online appointment and questionnaire ahead of time, made the day of hassle free. thank you!
Oh what a relief after treatment! Pain level much improved!!
I have never felt this good after a massage. Daniela really knows her way around the skeletal structure and how to fix what's ailing you. Will definitely be back.
I TEND TO START FEELING BETTER THE MINUTE I WALK IN THE DOOR. VERONICA DID A COMBINATION RELAXATION AND THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANY OF THE SERVICES THEY OFFER.
Cheryl A Pacheco
I had a tough time in Jan. and was tense. My muscles reflected it. Veronica did a great job working out the knots. Thank you!
Daniela gave me a great customized massage that fit my needs.
My first visit and it won't be my last! I had a facial treatment from Arielle several days ago and I am still looking in the mirror thinking how much better my skin looks. I have had quite a few facials in the past and this treatment, so far, was the best. Arielle will be my go to person from now on.
Max was very very good in my deep tissue massage. He worked on specific areas that I requested and I feel much better today in my lower back. I have already scheduled another session.
Thomas Bryan H.
Great couples massage!
Fantastic location for massage therapy, and they offer a great variety of techniques to help with pain or whatever you might need. Place for healing, and with the specials they run it's a no-brainer to give them a try.
Veronica is amazing! With her background in physical therapy and her incredibly strong hands, she was literally perfect for me. I’m a very large man with lots of muscle mass and numerous old injuries. Veronica listened to my concerns and exceeded my expectations.
This was my first time using your services and both my husband and I left saying that it was the best experience we have had. Max, my massage therapist, was able to pinpoint an issue I have from a car accident and help me to heal it. The massage was also relaxing and a wonderful way to take care of myself. We will definitely be back for more.
Max does very well, communicating with me and my issues. His deep tissue massages feel great and my lower back area is doing much better without pain. I have appointments set for every two weeeks.
“Danny” did a great job.
Great massage. Enjoyed it very much. Veronica was very good!
I went in for specific pain in my right shoulder and neck. Boy it hurt so good. She really got it there and I feel the difference today. Thank you Veronica. I'll be back.
Oh! How I needed this! I thoroughly enjoyed having a relaxing massage to melt away so much of the pain. The atmosphere was perfect. The service was wonderful. Additionally, great communication to ensure I received what I needed. Thanks to the experience!
Veronica was very good! The day before, it took me about an hour before I could lift my right arm! This morning it only took couple minutes! I will be going to see her again! She was also very nice and pleasant!
Message and Wellness Spa in Largo is my new favorite place. I was introduced to this spa via my neice's wedding party;They had a day there in September 2018 & it was a great experience. All of the wedding party had massages and gal pal fun but the spa didn't think they spoiled Grace (my daughter) enough so they gave her a gift card to apologize. Grace sincerely had a great experience and didn't think the card was necessary but that speaks to the professionalize of this spa and their expectations of your experience. We put the gift card to work today! Grace loved a 30-Minute message and we were given great tips to keep her muscles healthy when she is training for swim. JJ is my new favorite friend! He is a very well educated and experienced in his craft. He has a wonderful balance of a soft strength that leaves you feeling remarkable. His attention to detail on the aftercare going forward was over and beyond my expectations. I will definitely be a repeat client to this spa!
A very nice looking Wellness Spa, clean and quiet.
We booked a first time Couple's Massage for our Anniversary can't say enough how professional and enjoyable it was we already booked another individual massage each thanks for a most enjoyable experience
Both my Facial and my Massage were fantastic! Very professional and relaxing! Highly recommend! Thank you!
I have been to this spa a couple of times so far-very relaxing , warm, and inviting. Addie is my wonderful massage therapist-she is very receptive to your needs and wishes. They also carry some doTerra essential oils for purchase. I am very satisfied with my services here.
