Meet Jacquelyn Connelly

Licensed Massage Therapist

Jacqui attained her Massage Certification at The Center For Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in Albany, NY. There, she learned the art and science of massage as well as Palliative Care. She graduated in 2005 with Certificate.

After two years of a successfully growing career in Glenville, NY she was bitten by the travel bug and decided to seek out more of a destination hospitality role. The Outer Banks of North Carolina was the first place she admired and moved to.

During her position as LMT at The Sanderling Resort Spa in Duck, NC from 2005-2011, she decided to join a group of practitioners, Barefoot Massage& Integration Massage Therapy. This group delivered massage therapy to vacation homes in the surrounding OBX area, as well as a yoga center in Kitty Hawk and also a gym in Nags Head.

In the fall of 2011, Jacqui decided to go for the endless summer in St. Thomas, USVI where she worked at a busy resort, Lazule Sea Spa. She became especially skilled in hydrotherapy during that time, with a focus on skin health and relaxation. However, every year she would return to The Outer Banks to continue meeting with her regular clients.

In 2014, she decided to head to the Rockies in Vail, Colorado where she resided for three winters. She worked at 2 other Forbes star-rated hotels, Park-Hyatt’s Allegria Spa in Beaver Creek, Colorado followed by The St. Julien Hotel in Boulder. Colorado clientele proved to be primarily of the athletic type; therefore, she found that her sports-related training was utilized the most.

Her intent is to focus on managing Holiday Massage + Well-Being using her spa experience and technical training expertise as tools to provide a luxurious, professional experience in the privacy and convenience of your vacation home, right here on the Outer Banks.
