Dr. Gretchen Rivas, D.Ac, LMBT
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. Today, our practice has expanded to eight treatment rooms, including two couples massage rooms and two skincare rooms. Infinity Acupuncture is located in a separate building, just across the parking lot.

Hi..I'm Kelly and I love massage...I mean ..really love it...so much so that 7 years ago I decided to go back to school and become a therapist after 20 years as a dental assistant. I love the peace and joy of the whole experience knowing that I can help someone feel better. It's a great feeling.
Hi! My name is Corina and I am a licensed esthetician. I graduated from Cape Fear Community College in 2019. Since I was young, I have always had a passion for skincare. I wanted to become a professional esthetician because I love helping others and making people feel beautiful in their own skin! It is a privilege for me to be able to educate and assist people in reaching their skincare goals as well as creating a therapeutic atmosphere for them. Whether you have skin concerns or just want to unwind and get pampered, come see me and let me help you put your best face forward!
