Zenergy Massage opens new location in Belpre
BELPRE — Zenergy Massage, 206 Stone Road, has celebrated its opening of the business’ new site on June 2 with a ribbon-cutting conducted by Belpre Area Chamber of Commerce and the city of Belpre.
An open house with tours followed.
The business offers couples massage, relaxation, deep tissue therapy, hot rocks, cupping, aromatouch therapy, waxing and facials.
According to owner Kenna Lewis, her business closed March 18 at her former Belpre location, in accordance with state guidelines for the pandemic. It reopened May 18 at the new site.
“A majority of our clients are therapeutic,” she said. “We have a lot of clients that are in pain, with some in chronic pain, and they need us. We were not perceived as medical and had no doctor on staff to say ‘you can do massage therapy’. That put us in the later openings.”
Lewis and her staff began planning for the new location at the end of February, but opening was halted due to the required business closure mandate.
The new location adjacent to Oakview Dermatology has eight massage rooms. Staff includes Lewis, LMT; Jackie Shaffer, LMT and esthetician; Olivia Mezick, LMT; Tanner Palmer, LMT; Stephanie Holland, LMT; and Kori Collins, LMT. The receptionist is Lauryn Simmons.
Guidelines that will be followed include social distancing, face coverings required for all staff and allowed for customers, daily employee symptom assessment, regular employee handwashing, available hand sanitizer, and adherence to all other mandates, such as wearing aprons which are changed following each client.
