I prefer to use a “melting pot” approach to therapy. When asked what my Specialty is I respond “Whatever it takes to achieve your goals for the session” You’re aches & pains are usually multi-faceted so it may take a variety of techniques to provide the best relief. It is my philosophy that healing doesn’t begin & end on the table. It starts with an in depth intake (Medical History, Injuries, Daily Life Influences & Goals) then ends with Educating you on Body Awareness to Correct & possibly Prevent problem areas from occurring. Massage isn’t a miracle cure but we’ll work on what massage & bodywork can achieve for you.Read More
Aromatherapy is a therapy designed to assist the body's natural ability to balance, heal and maintain itself through the skilled use of essential oils. It is both an art and a science based on the interaction between the therapist, the client and the essential oils, which all work together to elicit the client's innate, self-healing energy.
At Akeso Therapy, Aromatherapy is included in every Uniquely You massage. With a variety of oils to choose from, your therapist can help find the right choice for you.More Information

Today, aromatherapy is one of the most popular of all complementary therapies, offering a wide range of highly effective treatments to both the acute and chronic stages of illness and disease. At the same time, regular use of aromatherapy treatments and home-use products can help to strengthen the immune system, thereby establishing a preventative approach to overall health.
One of the reasons that aromatherapy has been so hugely successful is because it uses a holistic approach, whereby the aromatherapist takes into account a persons medical history, emotional condition, general health and lifestyle before planning a course of treatment. The whole person is treated - not just the symptoms of an illness - and this is in direct opposition to the modern trend of just treating the presented condition.
After seeing how friendly and patient the staff has been to my mom I have now decided to book an appointment as well and I'm extremely excited to start. Thank you Akeso Therapy for everything you have done to make my mothers experience so pleasant, and one that she will carry on for the rest of her new healthy life! 🙂
I went to Raleigh for my birthday and my friend booked us massage service. We weren't sure what we were expecting but we ended up loving this special massage experience. Shauna was great and professional. It was a very unique massage experience, not only my body was relaxed, my mind was also clear.
Today I had my first session with Shauna: It's like nothing I experienced before and I can't wait to get another one. Shauna is also very knowledgeable and provides really good advice that can help you manage stress and pain in your daily life. A rare find.
