Hello and welcome to Just Breathe! My name Salina Hallenbeck. I am a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist (LMBT #6438) and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500, E-RYT200). I started Just Breathe in Denver, NC where I had been living and working for over 13 years. I am excited to be bringing my studio to Concord, NC!
When I was a young girl growing up in New Jersey, I experienced some health issues that helped me realize the importance of understanding how our bodies function and how that knowledge can assist people who are in pain. My interest in helping others uncovered my passion for biology and human anatomy.
Before moving to NC I took my first 200-hr yoga teacher training in NJ. I have since completed many additional hours of yoga training, including another 200-hr course with Subtle Yoga (TM) and a 300-hr course with Rolf Gates. In 2005 I began classes at the South Eastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in Charlotte, NC and graduated at the top of my class. Immediately after graduating I was hired at the school as a teaching assistant and over the last 13 years I have continued to study many areas of massage.
I use my training in Swedish, Neuromuscular, Thai massage, yoga and other modalities to create the best individualized plan for each client. I am dedicated to helping my clients relax, relieve pain, reduce stress, and learn more about themselves and their bodies in the process. It all begins with one simple action – one we often take for granted…Just Breathe!
I currently reside in Kannapolis, NC with my Brad, my son Reese, and our dog Riley. I am thrilled to be offering massage and yoga to clients in Kannapolis, Concord, Charlotte, and surrounding areas!
