The location of my business is the lower part of my house.  It is a very professional, welcoming, laid-back, serine atmosphere. I am married with 2 sons and 2 daughters and 2 very friendly dogs. I am an Ex-Merchant Marine (sailed various types of ships all over the world for 13 years) and served during Desert Storm. I worked as a Substitute Teacher for 12 years (five in Panama City, Fl. and 7 right here in Tennessee) My passion: Women's Ministry and bringing out the best in people, making others feel better, and hiking.

Hello! My name is Roger Mott. My passion for massage therapy comes from my own experience of how it has helped me. My lower back issues once got to the point of almost constant, unrelenting pain until my mother suggested I go to an LMT. Today I am pain free and was so amazed with my results that I became an LMT myself, in order to give others the therapeutic treatment and relief that I experienced.

I am a provider and an advocate of alternative therapies 1st, then medicine.  Through personal experience, I have learned that massage therapy improves my clients physical, mental, and emotional state, and has no negative side effects.This is the main reason why I've chosen this profession.  

I have worked at Austin Springs Spa and Skin Deep Medical Spa, as well as, Kingsport and Jonesborough Senior Centers.


Taking care of yourself is essential.  A consistent massage therapy routine, along with eating healthy and exercising, assists in achieving the highest quality of life, longevity, and happiness.  I'm happy to help you.
