Our Team

Our Therapists are simply the "best of the best" and truly the cream of the crop in Sarasota!

We should know; we’ve interviewed many since we opened on Siesta Key 35 years ago! At Hands of Light, we work only with fully licensed, qualified, and insured individuals with no less than 10 years experience in the art, with most of our Therapists having more than 15-25 years experience. All of our colleagues maintain a semblance of their own practices, including practices at other spas in town, and some are alumni of the most celebrated spas in the country, including the award winning Ritz Carlton in Sarasota and The Four Seasons Resort in Las Vegas.

They have interesting stories and have lived interesting lives, not only as Healthcare Practitioners, but also as Parents, Teachers, Architects, Bankers, Dancers, Designers, Baristas, and Artists. We know them very well. They possess the utmost integrity and they are our friends. We hope that you enjoy their complete dedication to the craft the way we do.

* Pls. Note: All Therapists are extremely proficient in most any type of service we offer, running the gamut from relaxation massage to modalities of more intense, demanding & specific work. We like to say that "The Greatest Therapists Wear Many Hats!"
