Jennifer Davy, LMT PA-MSG013726
Hello, my name is Jennifer Davy. I believe strongly in the power of touch and understand it is an essential part of a balanced self care routine. My studies at the Lancaster School of Massage Therapy taught me to thoroughly listen to my clients and devise a treatment specific to their needs. My approach is to deliver a service that heals and calms both the body and mind. I practice various modalities such as Swedish, Reflexology, Neuromuscular Therapy, Connective tissue massage, Myofascial release and Reiki.

Evan Kleinhaus, LMT PA-MSG005888
Evan Kleinhaus grew up in Lancaster City being a multi-sport athlete and knowing a good bit about the human body from the sports he played. An avid runner, Evan was on his high school and college Cross Country/Track and Field teams.
Evan received a BA in Global Geography at Millersville University. During that time he also coached Cross Country, Track and Swimming at McCaskey High School. Evan decided to go back to school for Sport Massage Therapy in order to become a better coach and give the students an edge in recovery. He graduated in 2011 from Lancaster School of Massage. He then continued his education and received a personal training certificate. This provided Evan with a balance between the two professions of massage therapy and personal training, giving him an advantage to help clients achieve their goals. While being the Associate Executive Director at the City Center YMCA in Lancaster, he oversees the wellness and sport departments and still competes in many running and lifting competitions.
Massage Therapy has elevated him to a higher level of body awareness and how the body functions. Evan focuses primarily on sport massage, working road races, marathons (some with a full Medical Triage), bike races and has worked his way onto the USA Weightlifting Sport Medical Team and with WWE when they are in Hershey and Wilkes-Barre. He is constantly learning new perspectives about the human body and what it is able to accomplish for both his clients and himself.
Evan is available for appointments Friday 8:00-1:00pm & Sunday 8:00- 5:00pm.
Nicole Fortney, LMT PA-MSG011662
When life gives me trouble, I turn to joyful movement, radical rest, the arts, nature, friends, family, trusted health providers, nourishing food and, of course, massage therapy.
My core beliefs are that life is short; so be kind to yourself and the people around you, wear comfortable clothing, laugh - a lot, create beauty when you can, and appreciate it when you can't.
After years of receiving massages in my mid to late twenties, I decided that I'd like to share the benefits that the various modalities have for every system in our body - by becoming a practitioner myself. When my kids went to school, so did I.
I completed the full-time medical based program at the Harrisburg Area Community College in 2017. My training there included Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Connective Tissue techniques. I joined the team at Releaf in 2019.
Part of licensure in Pennsylvania involves continuing education. In order to better serve the diverse clients I see, living with a broad range of conditions, I've taken classes and received certifications in:
⁃ Comfort Touch for the Medically Frail
⁃ Orthopedic Massage
⁃ Pregnancy Massage
⁃ Manual LymphaticDrainage, for the in-tact lymph system
⁃ Reiki I & II
⁃ Respect Massage
⁃ Somatic Mindfulness, introductory
Being human isn't always easy. Book a session to rest, digest, and recover from whatever challenges you find yourself in presently and care for wounds of the past.
Nicole is available for appointments Monday 2:00-6:00pm & Wednesday/ Friday 9:00-1:00pm.
