Lisa Thomas, Owner 

          Welcome! I'm Lisa Thomas, Owner of Breathing Space Studio & Spa. It's my sincere desire to provide each and every person who walks through the doors with the most indulgent, relaxing, and therapeutic massage or facial. I love to provide a full pampering experience from start to finish, allowing you to reach deeper levels of restoration and peace. I am passionate about relaxation and wellness, and my mission is to help people live balanced, healthy, and happy lives. 

          In the fall of 2012, I decided to pursue a long-time dream and I enrolled at Capri College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I received my license to practice esthetics in May of 2013 and massage therapy in January of 2014. I love learning new techniques and skills and I am constantly looking for continued growth and education.

                I have completed several yoga trainings and I am a certified Yomassage therapist and Yomassage esthetician. I was also one of the first massage therapists to become a certified Graston therapist. I am a proud member of Associated Skincare Professionals, and an ABMP certified member.

          It was my vision to create a warm, cozy, and welcoming retreat where people could feel their stresses and concerns of everyday life melt away. In March of 2017, I breathed that vision into life and I opened Breathing Space Studio & Spa. It's my privilege and passion to provide a quiet and tranquil atmosphere that allows deep relaxation and healing to take place.

          In my free time, I enjoy music, yoga, camping, and hiking. I especially love spending time with my family: my husband Shawn, my three adult children and their families, especially my three amazing grandsons. And of course I love pampering my three dogs, Olivia Finley and Murphy.
