Noel

Meet Noel!

Noel is the proud owner of A Touch of Serenity. She founded this company in 2014 with the intention of creating an establishment that offers affordable massage therapy services without compromising the quality of customer service and care. As a long time migraine sufferer, Noel understands the importance of having accessibility to an affordable and effective self-care routine. Because massage therapy became one of the most effective holistic approaches that truly helped to alleviate the frequency of her migraines, Noel became fascinated with learning all that she could about alternative healing practices.

After Noel received her BFA from Howard University in 2008, she returned to school the following year and completed her training for massage therapy in 2009 from The National Massage Therapy Institute in Falls Church VA. She later received her MBA with a specialization in entrepreneurship in 2016 from The Forbes Business School of Ashford University. Her 14 years of experience in massage therapy has taught her the true value of self-care for both the mind and body. Noel specializes in deep tissue and trigger point therapy. 

Noel is currently not available for appointment scheduling.
