Spa with Me: Move a Mountain Massage at Body Wisdom & Discover a Secret Spot to Relax TMJ & Neck Knots Every Day
This week we’re having massage therapy that energizes and relaxes, while helping TMJ toothaches. Plus a self massage technique for headaches, computer neck stiffness and more. And a spa daycation in Chattanooga!
Body Wisdom is nestled at the foot of Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, TN. Buddha’s words below greet you on Body Wisdom‘s website, but they truly capture the essence of Body Wisdom’s location & offerings which are therapeutic.
Even their building, in the St. Elmo Historic District, has a cool urban, natural, calm, befitting its mountain view, it’s 110 years old and has a history of health, having once been the St. Elmo Drug Store.

I opted for an hour therapeutic massage with Wynne D. the owner and it was one of the best massages I’ve ever had! She is certified in neuromuscular therapy, which I sought as I was having pain in my jaw from stress.
She even showed me a self-massage technique for helping ease TMJ symptoms – which she explains how to find and work in this episode. Just make the money sign to loosen the spot! It would make a great stress reliever for any of us who sit at a desk many hours a day at the office.
As you listen to the episode, you’ll note I had trouble finding the sternocleidomastoid so here’s a tip: tilt your head to the right, then place your left hand on the right side of your neck behind your ear, and you’ll feel a muscle that runs diagonal to the front of the neck, you’ve found it!
But one treatment I can’t wait to go back and try is the Sinus Ayruvedic Massage which helps clear sinus passages – if you’re looking for a way to soothe your allergies this is it!
Why not make it a day? Body Wisdom is next to the Incline, so you can take a ride up the mountain, take a gorgeous hike at Point Park and then come back for a relaxing massage and dinner, 1885 is a yummy restaurant I highly recommend it!
PS This week is Everybody Deserves a Massage Week (but shouldn’t every week be?) so get out there and take care of you! If you’d like to relax with another of our virtual massages, check out our apres trade show decompression one at Four Seasons Vegas episode here. xo Candy
