Owner/Lead Therapist

Veronica loves bodywork, both giving and receiving! She was raised in the Savannah area and attended Suncoast School of Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL over 15 years ago as a way to better support herself and her young daughter while finishing college and found that massage therapy is her passion and calling. She has never looked back. Early in her career she travelled around the US working in luxury and high end spas in places like Vail, CO while enjoying the beauty and sport of each location. Later she worked in more clinical settings with several talented and passionate chiropractors. Based on these experiences she believes that most people want bodywork that is both luxurious and enjoyable while still accomplishing therapeutic structural change. She created Pooler Massage Therapy to be a place where she and other like-minded professionals can practice with autonomy while bringing this particular brand of bodywork to the public at an affordable price.

Christa Rosenkranz-Taylor

LMT, Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Yoga Instructor (200 Hr)
GA License #011114

The healing arts, movement and the power of touch have interested Christa since she was a child. She moved from Atlanta to Savannah in 2005 to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design, and though an artist and dancer, she felt her life calling was more than just than her own artistic pursuits and began studying energy work and yoga after graduating with a degree in illustration. One night when she was 27 she woke up, hardly able to move, she found out that she had scoliosis that had finally reached a breaking point. Her journey through healing her resulting chronic pain and correcting her twisted posture inspired to her help others unwind their pain, so she enrolled in massage school to become a body worker full time. Her artistic background developed her observational skills and Christa uses this to look for minute imbalances in the human body.

Her Reiki energy work training started under Rosemary Belfi-Hagan and she later apprenticed under Cindy Beach at the Savannah Zen Center to complete her master training. She feels strongly about helping people clear their energetic blocks and get in touch with something deeper within themselves, as the mind and body are deeply intertwined. Christa graduated from the Yoga Teacher Training program at the Savannah Yoga Center in 2015 and then attended the massage therapy program at the International Spa Institute and graduated in 2016. Though energy work is her passion, Christa loves doing deep tissue and trigger point work and has learned how to do clinical work for tendonitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash, and piriformis syndrome just to name a few. She has found her Reiki practice to be incredibly helpful for clients who suffer from migraines and other headaches. Most recently, Christa has begun taking classes on biodynamic cranial work and she uses her yoga background both for table stretching and to recommend stretches to alleviate discomfort between massage sessions.

She finds joy in helping people connect and calm their mind, body and spirit through breath, movement and massage and believes that just a little more awareness goes a long way on the road to healing.

Casey Perez

GA License #MT009979

Casey grew up in the Appalachian basin of upstate New York. The power and majesty of nature has always been a love of hers. Learning about the use and benefits of essential oils stems from this childhood influence. The personal influences of her life include her father, who was a historian and restaurateur, her grandmother, an artist, and Veterans including her grandfather and husband who both influenced her pursuit of massage therapy.

Casey joined the military in 2003 in hopes of pursing an education afterwards. She was stationed in Germany and after a deployment to Iraq she meet her husband. After leaving the military, the next twelve years brought two children, two more deployments and a shoulder replacement for her young husband, and a move to beautiful Savannah Georgia. Casey wanted to have a better understanding of anatomy and how to help her husband and other veterans. She had realized that there is power in human touch after working as a childcare provider for five years and after being in the military, she had desire to understand the effects of PTSD on the body and to help those who suffer from it. It was these curiosities that brought her to attend Virginia College for Massage Therapy in 2014.

Working at many spas and assisting a chiropractor for three years has given Casey had the privilege of helping people with problems such as scoliosis, sciatica, frozen shoulder syndrome, tendinitis, carpal tunnel, planter fasciitis, various joint replacements, migraines, fibromyalgia, sports strains, insomnia, stress and much more. She feels that her love of bodywork makes her like a detective for the muscular system: you never really know what to expect. It may seem after an initial assessment that you have a general idea of what's going on, but after working on the tissue it be something entirely different. Emotions and memories are held throughout body. Our daily lives effect our muscles and where we hold tension. There are so many factors to consider. Casey loves to work with clients who have multiple issues- it is fascinating to unwind the chains of muscles and connective tissue to help anyone who has been in pain. She believes preventative massage is important and that it should not only be a luxury but an essential part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle!

Casey continues to learn as more techniques to benefit her clients, and has done continuing education in myofascitis strategies (Magnus Eklund), PTSD and Massage, Nervous System Disorders, Chronic Pain and Massage, Common Sports Injuries, Essential Oils has studied Reiki 1 & 2 in with Reiki Master Christa Rosenkranz-Taylor. She hopes to add more to this list in the future!

Carrie Sisk

Carrie started her journey as a massage therapist in 2010 and feels truly blessed to be able to offer the benefits of massage to others.  She has training in Swedish, Trigger Point, MFR, Medical, Pre-Natal and Hot Stone Massage.  She uses a combination of techniques to customize every massage for each client's individual needs.  She believes that muscles are not only affected by physical stress, but also hold on to emotional stress and trauma. By manipulating the soft tissue with massage, the body will release physical and emotional holding patterns and eliminate toxic waste and energy.  Allowing the body to obtain a complete state of deep relaxation creates space for healing and rejuvenation.

Trigger point therapy is Carrie's specialty and she uses it as an effective relief for migraine headaches and neck pain. She has spent the last six years providing medical and therapeutic massage for cervical strains and injuries and has been successful at helping clients recover from common issues such as frozen shoulder syndrome, sciatic pain, tennis and golf elbow, whiplash and chronic pain. She has also found massage to be very effective for individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
