“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”
Dianna has been a licensed professional massage therapist since 2013. She is committed to provide relief and relaxation for the troubled mind and body. Through her private practice, she has worked extensively with chiropractors and physical therapists, who gave her an even greater knowledge of her specialties including trigger point release techniques and maxillofacial release techniques. Here at Willow, her goal is to help you relax while also addressing and resolving your main concerns. Whenever she has down time, Dianna likes to be outdoors with her husband and two black Labradors whether it is hiking, rollerblading, swimming, or camping. She and her husband also welcomed their first child in January 2016.

“Change is not something you should fear. Rather it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.” ~ Anonymous
Stephanie has been a licensed massage therapist since the fall of 2011. She specializes in firm pressure techniques, trigger point, cranial sacral and hot stone therapy. She is now taking her practice into oil treatments and other advanced modalities. No massage is ever the same! Receiving monthly maintenance is about bringing awareness back to the body. She is a dedicated therapist that listens to each client’s individual needs and translates those needs through massage therapy. If you are looking for a restorative massage, then look into booking your next session with Stephanie. She understands down time and relaxation is a must in life. Outside of work she is looking for the next adventure from: nature walks/hiking, out of state driving, music festivals and eventually international travel.
My name is Sarah and I’m one of the new additions to the Willow Massage team. I recently moved here from Colorado to be closer to my family in Prescott and to enjoy the long rock climbing season.
I graduated from Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy in 2016 as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Neuromuscular Therapist. My focus in school was women’s health work pertaining to massage. Through the last two years of my career I have received additional training in lymphatic drainage, visceral manipulation, guasha, cupping, and reiki. I love creating health plans for my clients and helping them reach their bodywork goals.
Massage Therapy called to me as a career because I believe feeling empowered in your body can change your life. So many people suffer from chronic pain and they don’t have to. Massage can help alleviate so many symptoms and help you reach your goals. All of the Massage Therapists at Willow Massage and Spa are here to help and to answer any questions. Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself to you, and I hope to see you soon.
