Our Story

It was 2008, and America was in the depths of the Great Recession.

Healing Hands founder Anastasia Yecke Gude found herself wondering what to do with her life at the ripe old age of 32. Her career in advertising had ended with the sale of the company she had worked at since 2002. Should she look for a similar job or forge a new path?

During her time of unemployment, Anastasia noticed how much less tension she carried in her body. Fewer hours hunched over a computer resulted in a significant loosening of the muscles in her back. She did some soul-searching and realized that she derived infinitely more satisfaction out of helping others than selling advertising…

Fast-forward to 2010 and Anastasia graduated from Educating Hands School of Massage as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She founded Healing Hands and over the next several years, her company’s mission evolved from not only providing quality, customized massage therapy sessions to her clients, but also to assisting employees in finding ways to feel better on the job – because a less-stressed employee is a happier and more productive employee!

Today, Healing Hands Therapeutic Massage and Corporate Wellness has three distinct parts:

Swedish, aromatherapy, lymphatic, prenatal, and geriatric massage

Deep tissue massage, stretching, hot stones, cupping, and CRT (Cranial Release Technique)

Corporate wellness solutions including chair massage, yoga, meditation, and Pilates

Our team of wellness professionals is second to none, as each was selected just as much for their enthusiasm and passion for improving the lives of others as for their skills.
