Our Misson

Our mission is to create an awareness of one's body through massage, salt therapy (halotherapy) and nutrition. J & S Center for Wellness focuses on the whole mind and body by using multiple specialized therapies.

Our team

Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your therapist, has one goal in mind--to help you feel better fast. We know that when your body is not in top shape your entire outlook on life can be affected. That is why you will always be greeted with a smile and leave with an even bigger one on your face.

Your health

Please do not take chances with your health. A wellness plan that is individualized and easy to understand and follow through on is key to good health all through your life. Make massage a cornerstone of that plan, and you are well on your way to living a life that is active and free from pain.
