My name is Gvnagei Waya (Gun-nah-gay-ih Why-yah), translated in English as "Black Wolf", and I am of Cherokee descent. My great grandmother was a survivor of the Trail of Tears. I firmly believe that healing is a natural part of who I am as an American Indian.
After spending 15 years as a combat medic, I opened up my private practice in 2003. Over the course of those years, I have learned that this is my true calling. The greatest part of my day is providing hands-on therapy and helping those in need.
With my 15 more years of medical massage experience, we will work together to achieve your needs.
My therapy is open to all age ranges, genders, and stages of life. Everyone can benefit from therapy - whether physical, energetic, or mental - and in consideration of your specific issues, I would like to help.

Hello, my name is Inoli. I began my journey as a massage therapist due to my life partner Waya's positive influence.
I gravitated towards massage ever since I was very little, and finally, after getting a BA in Music and trying my hand at several other careers, I found myself inevitably returning towards my childhood passion. I do not have a routine to my bodywork, I listen to you and your muscles and do what they tell me to do.
I love what I do, and it is the most fulfilling feeling to send a client home happy and with decreased pain.
Meet our featured therapist, Waya!
Waya served in the 101st Airborne Division as a Combat Medic. His medical experience complements his understanding of massage and how the body works. He graduated Vocational Nursing, has 15 years of massage experience (post-military), and has even delivered 5 babies during the course of his medical career. He has also worked on the cyclists of the local Bike MS: Valero Ride to the River fundraiser (for Multiple Sclerosis) for the last 13 years.
His knowledge of the human body and its conditions guides your massage so that you receive exactly the bodywork you need.
