Eve Jean-Pierre LMT Lighthouse Massage and Wellness


Eve Jean-Pierre LMT has been practicing massage for 16 years. She is  certified in la stone massage, licensed in pregnancy massage

Thai massage, reflexology, and bamboo massage.

My specialty is working with chronic pain using medical and La stone massage.

 "I am invested in my client's health and happiness above all things. 

My goal is to give much-needed relief to pain and discomfort, as well as the emotional strain that we all have in our busy lives."

About Eve’s specialty. La stone massage. Is the original hot stone massage using hot and cold stones to sooth and release stubborn knots and tension. 

It is ideal for that stubborn pain. The combination of heat and cold helps the muscles to let go more naturally. Instead of an invasive or 'poking' feeling.

It is my favorite massage to give as well as receive. it’s perfect for people who suffer from chronic pain, athletes or anyone who needs that extra help relaxing.
