Ginny Rogers
Founder & Manager

In 2005, I moved to Virginia and followed my dharma to help people facing chronic pain, including myself. I studied massage therapy at AKS and graduated top of my class. I became a certified, licensed, clinical massage therapist. I studied energy healing and became a Reiki Master. I studied and mastered deep tissue and myofascial massage. I took yoga training, breath training and meditation. I shopped all the local spas and massage studios to see what was being offered. I was usually under-whelmed and over-charged. I used all of those experiences and hours of learning to create effective massage techniques and unique experiences at Nova Bodyworks.

I've been very lucky to work with, teach, and learn from many wonderful therapists and people over the years. Today, while I don't see massage clients anymore, I am still blessed to work alongside many talented therapists and I look forward to helping you find the right therapist and service to suit your needs.

I am still on a journey of self-discovery, self-healing and exploring the mind-body connection. I am always looking for amazing talent. If you're interested in working with us, contact me.
