Essential Healing Therapeutic Massage

Stress is inevitable...Suffering is optional

Affordable, customized Massage Franklin Laikes

If you're looking for a professional Massage Therapist who will truly listen and then will customize each session so you receive the most benefit out of your massage session, then you've come to the right place! Whether you're an active person who is having a specific problem or you are suffering from an overload of stress and need to shut off and completely relax, I can help you. My name is Cheryl Cefola, and I have been practicing Massage Therapy for 19 years. I have been solely in business for myself for the past 8 years and have learned many things along the way. I am always continuing my education so I can bring new techniques and modalities to my practice. I do however specialize in the relief of chronic back, neck and shoulder issues as well as Therapeutic Massage. Your sessions with me will not only be goal oriented, they will also be unbelievably relaxing to allow your mind and body to connect and heal. I offer reasonable rates so that my clients can afford to incorporate regular Massage Therapy sessions into their wellness routine. Regular Massage Therapy shouldn't be considered a's an Essential part of self care.

I decided to go into business for myself after working for many Day Spas and Wellness clinics and was dismayed at how the industry was changing. No longer were clients receiving a full 60 or 90 minutes of bodywork...they were receiving only 50 or 80. The therapists were left with only 10 minutes between clients for the clients to exit the room so they could turn it over for the next client. It felt rushed and impersonal which leads many therapists to perform "cookie cutter" massage sessions. The clients were often pressured into signing a contract after receiving their massages. When you come to my studio, you're never rushed and there is never any pressure to sign a contract. I do offer special pricing for clients who schedule massage sessions at least once a month or more. There is no prepayment involved as you can pay as you go!

About The Therapist

Cheryl Cefola

New Jersey State Licensed Massage Therapist


I decided to pursue a career in Massage Therapy 19 years ago after spending several years as a certified personal trainer. I had always been strongly interested in health and wellness and came to realize that Massage and Bodywork was a better fit for me. I enjoy the hands on aspect of my work and also helping people feel their best by lessening their pain and stress.
