Kearney graduated from National Institute of Massotherapy in 2007. She worked for Lakewood Massotherapy (2007-2013) and most recently Zen Metro Spa from 2009 until its recent closure in October 2017. She prides herself on the ability to treat each client according to their specific needs and customizes her massage to target the areas of concern. She has a strong backround in Deep Tissue and Relaxation massage, Medical massage, Neuromuscular and Trigger Point Therapy, Post-Isometric muscle release, Prenatal and Hot Stone Massage.
Most recently she became a Graston Technique Preferred Provider. This technique uses specially designed instruments to treat soft tissue injuries such as areas of chronic inflammation and scar tissue. The goal is to heal and rebuild healthy functioning tissue. The instruments are moved over the affected area and come into contact with the adhesions breaking up the scar tissue. In time, this process reduces the stuck fibers, restoring motion and eliminating the pain associated with the injury.
She is passionate about healing and would love to talk to you about how massage can be a solution for pain and chronic stress.

Marissa graduated from Tri-C's massage therapy program in 2016 shortly after getting her bachelor's degree in strategic communication from The Ohio State University. Her belief in mind-body wellness guides her practice and her mission is to bring that to clients through her massage. Marissa uses a fusion of long, sweeping lomilomi style forearm strokes, which feel like waves rolling along the body, and myofascial release and trigger point therapy. This mixture of techniques is perfect for the client who loves a deep massage, but does not want it to be painful or uncomfortable. Her ultimate goal is for everyone she has the honor of massaging to leave their appointment feeling relaxed, renewed and at peace.
Along with Swedish and deep tissue massage, Marissa especially loves to work on mamas-to-be with prenatal massage, and she plans on adding more of Bodhi Tree's services in the future.

Anna graduated from Raphaels in 2021 and became licensed as an advanced esthetician. She originally wanted to become an esthetician because of a lifelong interest in the science behind skincare, mainly due to personal struggles with acne. She has found that the power of touch and relaxation can be just as, if not more, beneficial for the skin than what your everyday skincare routine offers. Anna's favorite part of a facial, and what she has found to be most beneficial for all skin types, is facial massage that focuses on lymphatic drainage, sculpting, and bringing peace. Anna loves to combine advanced treatments and products with holistic methods for skin health and healing." Holistic skincare is an all-encompassing lifestyle; the skin is just one part of the entire body, so I like to look deeper and find the root causes of issues as opposed to putting on bandaids. Through healing my own skin, I’ve discovered the power in a simple skincare routine and the importance of a calm nervous system and self acceptance. With this, I focus on deep healing over temporary results with clients, and thoroughly enjoy coming up with treatments that take into consideration more than the surface level appearance of your skin."
