Beth Searcy LMT

Beth's interest in massage therapy began in 2005 while studying Sports Medicine at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). She became in tune to the body awareness and recognized massage therapy as a necessity for injury prevention and recovery treatment.  Beth received her training and graduated from Mind Body Institute (MBI) in 2010 at the top of her class. She is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). She began her massage therapy career in Nashville where she offers a wonderful combination of therapeutic and treatment massage to restore function and movement throughout the body.  Beth is fluent in Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish Massage, and Sports Massage. She believes in the body's ability to heal itself and that massage therapy is one of the many paths to restoring health and wholeness to the body.  Beth is extremely passionate about the work she does and tailors each session to her clients' individual needs.

Outside of massage therapy, Beth enjoys staying active, Notre Dame sports, dancing, camping, being outdoors, and most importantly, being with her friends and family.

Amy Ronning LMT

Amy became interested in massage therapy while working as an office assistant for a local energy efficiency company, utilizing her B.S. in Small Business Management. Her work hours were spent in front of a computer, which led to chronic headaches and an all-around stiffness. After deciding that a desk job wasn't for her, Amy enrolled at Southeastern Institute in Nashville, and graduated from their massage therapy program in 2011.
Amy's modalities currently include Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, and prenatal massage. Her sessions are adaptable according to the needs of the client, and she values both stress relief and pain relief. She is licensed in the state of Tennessee and is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

When she is not doing massage, Amy enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, family, and friends. She loves being outdoors, going to Predators hockey games, concerts, eating, and playing the piano. She is also a freelance piano teacher at a local elementary school.

Jeanien Green LMT

Jeanien has always believed massage therapy (and dark chocolate) make the world a better place.  She had been a massage client for many years while working in the telecommunications industry and eventually decided that she was ready for a major career change.  In fact, Jeanien was receiving a massage when her massage therapist suggested becoming an LMT.  She received her training at Mind Body Institute, including an internship at Absolute Wellness in 2014, followed by graduation in 2015.  She is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.  

 

Jeanien prefers to customize each massage to the specific needs of each client.  Her training includes relaxation, deep tissue, treating trigger points and myofascial pain, hot stones, TMJ treatment, cupping therapy, sports therapy, prenatal, and more.

 

Jeanien enjoys spending time with her family and always has new pictures of her adorable grandchildren to share.  She plays volleyball, tries to water ski (husband’s favorite sport), and loves playing a wide variety of games.

Carla Gunter LMT

Carla was first drawn to the world of massage therapy as a form of self-care while pursuing her degree in Interior Design at Savannah College of Art and Design. Her interest in and love for self-care, the human body, and proper mechanics was further deepened as she explored her own yoga practice and eventually began teaching after completing her 200-hour certification in Atlanta, GA. After many years working as a commercial interior designer, the stress and hours living at a desk had begun to take a toll mentally, emotionally, and physically. She ultimately came to realize that her true passion and calling was through helping others find their own path and tools for wellness, recovery, and self-awareness. She took a leap and left the corporate world to pursue an education at Mind Body Institute and graduated at the top of her class in the fall of 2019. 

            

Carla believes massage therapy is an invaluable part of one’s journey towards the pursuit of physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness. She believes that no one path is the same for everyone and that we are all capable of transformation. She offers myofascial release, trigger point therapy, cupping, Swedish, and prenatal massage. She caters sessions to help pursue your goals and is dedicated to providing a safe, supported, therapeutic environment as she works with you through your needs. She is licensed in Tennessee, a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), and a Registered Yoga Teacher. Outside of the massage world, she offers yoga classes (group & private) and interior design services for a more holistic living environment. When she’s not working, she loves spending time with her husband and their fur-babies, working on house projects, being an amateur florist, going to concerts, adding more books to her reading/study list, painting/crafting/sculpting, enjoying the great outdoors, and having fun with family and friends.
