NC Massage and Bodywork License #429, NC Esthetics License #E7388 | 2013 #1 Massage Therapist by RM Telegram 

Heather Rogers is the founder and owner of The Garden Day Spa & Salon. Her impressive educational background reflects the true dedication she has to her establishment, and also to the excellence of the current services offered. Heather has made it her goal to acquire all the possible skills and knowledge of Massage Therapy, Reflexology, Esthetics, Airbrush Tanning, and many more up and coming services such as Eyelash Extensions. Heather began her educational journey at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with a BS in Kinesiology and Exercise Science in 1997. She continued on to the Medical Arts Massage School in Raleigh where she became an expert in Massage Therapy in 1999. From there, she was able to open her first practice called Health Touch Massage. 

Through this endeavor, she gained valuable experience and developed wonderful relationships with the people of Rocky Mount. Health Touch Massage prospered and she made the bold decision of expanding the practice in 2003. Heather designed, built, and opened The Garden Day Spa & Salon and it opened in February 2005. With the success of this new venture, Health Touch Massage dissolved and she chose to operate solely under the name The Garden Day Spa & Salon. Today, Heather not only thrives as a mother and entrepreneur, but also manages to continue her education in a variety of areas, while staying current with the latest spa services.
