Massage for Healthy Living
Welcome to Therapeutic Effects
Over 30 years experience to bring you the best service and knowledge. Consultation determines what modality most appropriately suits your needs. Affordable prices in today's market.
I’ve been a dedicated practitioner of holistic medicine since 1992 after attending Therapeutic Massage Training Institute in Charlotte and later Graduating from Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage & Bodywork in 1995. I love empowering patients to understand their bodies and discover the gentle power of the healing arts.
As a well-rounded Massage Therapist, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between holistic and western medicine while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. I am always looking to integrate new treatments and therapies into my practice and believe that continued learning is important for any good Massage Therapist.

Meet Jennifer Lanza
Offering a variety of services, we work with different modalities to align your life force and keep your body in balance.
The basic massage I utilize is SWEDISH MASSAGE. It incorporates long fluid strokes; some deeper kneading that enables the muscle fascia to release as lymph, blood, and oxygen begin to flow through the muscle fibers. The natural flow of energy will be restored and homeostasis (balance) is regained.
Deep Tissue Massage
This modality uses slow, forceful strokes to break up adhesions in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Pressure may be held in order for the density of the tissue to release. Elbows, sometimes knees, and other trigger point tools may be used to get into hard to resist areas.
Please drink plenty of water before coming in for a deep tissue massage, this will help to flush the toxins from the body.
NMT is a very highly effective treatment to rid body of pain. The therapist has an advanced knowledge of anatomy and can focus in on particular muscle groups to treat the dysfunction. During this "Static Pressure" work, the soft tissue is manipulated therefore achieving a balance within the Central Nervous System.
The Whole-Body Alignment Plan
A methodical treatment plan incorporating deep tissue massage along with stretches or Range of Motions while holding joints and muscle areas aims to create muscular balance and optimal movement in the body.
REIKI in Japanese is Rei (Ray) means Universal, and Ki (Key) means Life Energy. So REIKI means Universal Life Energy.
Think of it as creation, or God energy. It is a form of energy healing used by practitioners to assist traditional medicine and also to assist in emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
Unlike massage, there is no undressing, and no manipulations of muscles. The client wears comfortable clothes, lays on the massage table, and I lay hands on specific areas depending on the kind of healing we are working on.
It will sometimes require multiple sessions to reach a desired outcome, and sometimes, like massage, is used to simply release stress and relax.
REIKI is used in over 1,000 hospitals in the United States.

Foot and Hand Reflexology
A modality that has been practiced by ancient cultures for 1000s of years. Based on the theory that there are specific “reflex” points or zones on the hands & feet that correspond to every part of the body. By using special pressure techniques, it is believed that the body can enjoy profound relaxation and stress reduction, also aid in pain relief, digestion and elimination problems, help improve sleep and increase overall mental and physical well-being.
Senior Citizen Massage
Any client over the age of 75 is eligible for a discount. See rates. The skin of the elderly is less pliable and tears and bruises easily. Care is taken to be sensitive to these and other special areas of the aged population.
60 minutes of relaxation. It becomes difficult to lie face down once that Baby Bump has grown. The back hurts, the feet are swelling, and well, you are just somewhat uncomfortable.
