Hello! I’m Gretchen Rivas, owner of Relax! Massage Therapy & Skin Care. My passion for massage grew out of a personal experience in 2000 when I received a really bad massage! Massage is supposed to help people, and I knew I could do that. I went back to school and after graduating I opened my massage practice. After being a one-person business for many years, I added additional massage therapists when I went back to acupuncture school and needed help caring for clients while I was gone. Relax! Massage Therapy & Skin Care was still operating out of my home office until 2012, when I took a leap of faith and moved the massage and acupuncture practice to its current locations in Oleander Office Park behind Flaming Amy’s. A year later the practice expanded and added additional space upstairs for couples' massage. In 2017-18 we expanded another 1,700 square feet, added six additional rooms, and aesthetician services. Now, our massage practice has 10 treatment rooms, three couples massage rooms, and our Infinity Acupuncture is in another building across the parking lot.

I specialize in skin care for all ethnicities including: chemical peels, Microdermabrasion, facial waxing, Brazilian Wax, brow art, lash extensions and permanent makeup. I have worked in a variety of settings from the medical esthetics to platform work as an makeup artist. I am excited to be here at Relax!
