Ellie Sandler has been a staple to the Fort Myers Beach health and wellness community for decades. On her journey, she's grown and blossomed from being a singular mobile relaxation station to a fully staffed wellness retreat, proud to welcome five new therapists to her Well Kneaded Day Spa, at 11595 Kelly Road, Suite 318, right next to Cabinet Kings.

Due to the recent unexpected closing of another spa facility, Ellie welcomed these five talented therapists with open arms. They are:

The transition these therapists endured was extremely smooth, and according to Lee, "we've landed in heaven." She continues, "Ellie brought us right in, and we were welcome here, we never even missed a beat. Whenever a door closes, the perfect one opens."

"It was very professional how everything transitioned, and the neighbors have been so kind in looking out for us, spreading the word to our clients about how we are just down the block now. It's been very heart-warming," Izzy said.

Lee and Izzy want to reach out and let their clients know if they're wondering where they ended up, they're at Well Kneaded, happily transplanted.

"I'm just so very blessed that all of our therapists are so talented, and all really, truly enjoy what they do. It was definitely meant to be,"?Ellie said.

"We truly do love what we do," Izzy followed up.

With the addition of these five therapists, Well Kneaded Day Spa now offers three peaceful, relaxing rooms that are sure to bring one to "zen" shortly upon entering, and any services are available by appointment seven days a week.

"We like having warm, peaceful, welcoming rooms, ones that calm and soothe our patients, helping with their healing, relaxation process,"?Ellie said.

The list of health and wellness offerings have continued to blossom along with the business. Massage therapy services include sports, Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, specific, hot stones, bamboo and cupping.

Skin care services include facials, reflexology, ear candling, dermaplane, microderm, skin-tightening and anti-ageing treatments. Other services include teeth whitening and lymphatic drainage.

Some of Ellie's specialty skin services include anti-ageing micro-needling, which stimulates collagen regrowth, and LED light/RF facials, which help rejuvenate the face and help repair and revive collagen.

Plus, who can forget the spa's relaxing Migun bed, combining acupuncture, chiropractic, massage and infrared therapy. Massage and skin care specials are offered frequently, mobile services are available, and clients are welcome to come for as many treatments as they'd like - they can make a full day of it.

As Ellie says, health and wellness is her life, and she loves bringing care and relaxation to her clients, just like her new staff. "I truly believe that we all need to be kneaded. And we all deserve it."

Gift certificates are available. To make an appointment, call 239-985-0262 or email info@weallneedtobekneaded.com. Be sure to visit the day spa on Facebook by searching "Well Kneaded Massage Therapy & Skin Care," and visit WeAllNeedToBeKneaded.com.
