I’m Aryana K. Hartwell, award-winning massage therapist and founder of Waivess. I’ve been in practice over two decades.

The Waivess philosophy begins with the belief that massage is a health necessity. Today’s busy lifestyle drains our energy and causes physical and emotional strain; with massage therapy we can ease this tension and begin the healing process by allowing the body, mind and spirit to return to a balanced state.

Because each person’s needs are unique, every massage is matched to the goals of my client. Drawing on extensive training and experience, I use evidence based, technical knowledge and intuition to facilitate a personal journey back to health and wellbeing.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

At Waivess we focus on six main categories of therapy, each with its own unique benefits.

Our therapeutic massage is deeply relaxing and beneficial to the body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems, releasing toxins and tension.  Reflexology has shown to have positive effects on the organs and a person’s general health. CranioSacral Therapy and Lymph Drainage Technique improve the body’s ability to take better care of you.  Bowenwork uses specific moves to offer relief of many injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic. The ThetaHealing Technique®* is a meditation technique utilizing a spiritual philosophy with the purpose of improvement in mind, body and spirit.


Though I have been providing skilled massage therapy to health-minded clients since my graduation from the Emerald Coast Massage School in 1999, I believe that continuing education is a necessity to providing quality service. My experience as a massage therapist is an evolution of practice and education, and I have upheld this philosophy by completing additional coursework from the following institutions:
