About The Well

The Well is a massage, skincare, and waxing studio for the Chehalis community. Since we opened our doors in 2019, we’ve been helping our clients achieve a relaxed, balanced life through nurturing the body, soul, and mental clarity. We use 100% wild-crafted essential oils in each of our wellness treatments, and even offer the blends for purchase in our boutique. No matter what service you come in for, our team is trained to provide a safe and relaxing space for all.

Mompreneur, partner to my soul twin, and advocate for Self-Love.

I have been a Therapist for over 20 years,  an Esthetician pushing ten, and fitness, nutrition, and mindset coach for twelve.  The beauty of having diversity in my career has helped me to help others find true, whole-body wellness.

As I step back from full-time massage to help our team grow and thrive, I am still bringing knowledge of massage,  skincare, and the subtle need for waxing to our clients. I am lovingly called the “Waxing Diva of Lewis County”, by many of our clients.  I can assure you quick, funny and no it will not be a painless(that can’t be helped) waxing experience.  

With the growth of our small business I am also more available to consult and coach clients through functional fitness, portion management, and the science of the mind around food, and ultimately loving the skin you’re in!

I am super excited to be offering Body Mind Bridge Therapy as part of the coaching experience to really find the “trigger” that sets clients on the path to disordered eating.

Life is full of Ebbs and Flows… as a team, we would love to help you get your “flow” back!

Sarah

Hi! My name is Sarah, and I have lived in the Centralia area since the Fall of 2017. I’m a massage practitioner and a single mother of two teenagers, one being autistic. I started my massage career in 2012 to have the flexibility to be available for my kids! Working at The Well has enabled me to have an outstanding work-life balance.

Over the years, I have found that not only do I love massage, but I’m passionate about the medical treatment aspect of it.  My specialties are Deep Tissue Massage, Cupping, and Gua Sha.   I am also well versed in Lymphatic Therapy. I thrive the most when I can mix and match my skills to locate a problem and apply them to our clients, creating a unique and tailored experience that allows them to reach their goals. 

Ariel

As a native of Lewis County, I have always wanted to give back to the community. Through massage therapy and esthetics I am able to do just that. Working with The Well I am loving that I can focus on helping people manage stress, find pain relief, and bring some extra joy to our community. My specialties are intuitive injury treatment,  therapeutic relaxation, and skin wellness. I believe strongly in the healing effects of human connection and a gentle approach to treating pain. Whether it be to treat yourself to a relaxation massage, find glowing skin, or to manage chronic pain, I am happy to take that journey with you.

Lou

Lou has been practicing massage therapy since 2014. She has a thriving interest in helping people reach their health and healing goals. She combines the best of Swedish, deep tissues, cupping, and Gua sha to create comforting and therapeutic treatments that are unique and customized for a healing experience.

Nataliya - Massage therapist at The Well

Growing up in Lewis County, Nataliya appreciates the outdoors and enjoys being with family. Her love of helping others has grown since becoming a massage therapist, and finds satisfaction in speaking to the muscles through the process of massage. Assisting in healing through deep-tissue and injury treatment still amazes her, as much as helping people relax through quieter techniques. But don’t be fooled by her size; she will give your muscles a run for their money.
