Raeanne Zipparo

Raeanne graduated from Kishwaukee College in 2011 and joined WM in November 2012. As a teenager she experienced how beneficial massage therapy can be and wanted to help others feel better! Her motivation is the feedback she gets from her clients and seeing improvement in them. In her free time, Raeanne loves to spend quality time with her husband and her pug, and of course she loves to keep herself well by getting regular massages!

"It is my mission to always do what I can to help those around me; to always appreciate the wonderful people and opportunities in my life; to never stop learning and developing as a person and as a massage therapist and to enjoy life to the fullest."

Lea graduated from Cortiva Institute, she previously worked as a Chiropractic Educator, and is now following her passion with doing more hands on work to help others. She loves that going to work for her is helping people relax and feeling better when they leave. Her motivation is growing for her son and when a guest says how amazing they feel. She loves receiving massages herself, and also spending time with her son, going to concerts and hoop dance.

Rene Jackson

Rene Jackson

Rene's career as a Massage Therapist started in 2014 when she joined our team as a Massage Therapist Extern through Rockford College. She did such a great job working on employees that we knew we had to have her once she graduated! Her passion with massage starts from her love of getting massages and the benefits they give. Rene specializes in guests that have chronic pain. Something you wouldn't know by looking at Rene would be that she is an adrenaline junkie! Although she loves the relaxing atmosphere of a Spa, she LOVES doing things that scare her!


"It is my mission to continue growing and becoming the best version of myself, embracing new challenges, be a good role model for my children, be a good partner. I promise to never taking the small things for granted and to use the skills that I learn to help other people. I vow to be hard-working, honest, loyal, comforting to those around me while keeping a fun, light approach to life's challenges."
