Meet our Therapists:
Hello there! My name is Summer and I am the owner and Licensed Massage Therapist of the Massage Spot. I am from right here in this small town of Remus, Mi. I attended Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education in Mt. Pleasant, Mi and graduated in 2006. I worked locally for 7 years relaxing our communitey's residents at various business in the area. Then, May 2013 I opened The Massage Spot in a quaint little room located in The Hot Spot (hence the name) and after a year outgrew that space and moved to our current location. Jan 2015 my mom decided it was time for a change in scenery and came to work with me. Im so thrilled to have the honor to work side by side with her every day.
I've have been happily married to my wonderful husband for 6 years now and we recently became parents this past March to a set of boy/girl TWINS, Grady and Embry! <3
I was granted Peoples Choice Award for best massage therapist in Mecosta County for 2016!

Hello, my name is Brooke. I graduated from Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education in 2002. I have studied a wide variety of different massage techniques. I enjoy Swedish Massage, essential oils, hot stones, reflexology, and deep tissue. I decided to become a massage therapist for one reason, because it is incredibly relaxing and therapeutic to receive a massage. Remember that massage actually heals pain. I enjoy healing other people, so please stop in for an hour of complete peace and relaxation.

Hi, my name is Tamy Terrill. I am a new face at the Massage Spot! I am very excited to start my new journey in Therapeutic Body Work/Massage.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself – I have been a Registered Nurse for 20 years and came to the realization that I wanted to help people in a more natural, holistic way. This is why I am pursuing Massage Therapy. I am currently enrolled at Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education in Mt Pleasant. I have spent six months studying Swedish massage to include pressure point, myofascial release, positional release and tense and relaxation during massage. I also enjoy performing Lymphatic Massage and incorporating essential oils in my massage practice.
I am looking forward to learning Reflexology and Light Healing Touch. I will be graduating in March 2018.
I am a certified Auricular Therapist and hope to spark interest within the community to further integrative medicine.
When I am not working, I enjoy the lake life and spending it with my children and grandchildren. I also love to travel and craft for gift giving.
I so look forward to meeting and working with you!
Tamy is available on Wednesdays for only $30!
($30 room reservation fee)

My name is G'ne Holt. I'm currently an English teacher at Beal City Public Schools. I am pursuing a Master's degree from Bread Loaf School of English. In my spare time I love reading, writing, and spending time with my boyfriend; we enjoy going for RZR rides, taking vacations, and embracing the great outdoors.

I look forward to working weekends at the gym so I can meet my personal goal of exercising 4-5 days per week. I am ecstatic about helping others reach their personal fitness and diet goals. Come see me every Saturday morning for a smile and an encouraging word or two!
