Our Therapists


My name is Serge Merisme Jr. I graduated from Lincoln Tech in Somerville, MA in 2011. I’ve worked in several massage studios where I was fortunate enough to learn even more from many great therapists. My style of massage is a mix between Swedish and Deep Tissue.

I believe my greatest strength is that I can adapt to the needs of the client and treat them with courtesy, which I believe they can feel. What I enjoy most about doing massage is being able to make those I work on feel better leaving than when they came in.

Serge is available for booking Mondays & Tuesdays from 4pm through 9pm.


Claire has always been interested in the path of holistic healing, forging a personal mission from a very young age to bring wellness and balance to her own life. After discovering the Amma Therapy program at The Wellspring School for Healing Arts, these values began to blossom as a career path. She continued her training in herbal medicine in the Professional Herbalist program through the East West School for Planetary Herbology.

As a therapist, she strives to create a comfortable space in which clients can explore and enhance this path for themselves through education, healing, and relaxation. It is her priority to treat each client through a holistic model, addressing all elements of mind and body in unity.

Claire is available for booking Tuesdays 8am-4pm, Wednesdays 3pm-9pm, and Fridays 10am-6pm.

Massage Styles


Swedish massage is a classic style that uses long strokes to increase blood flow and promote lymphatic drainage throughout the entire body. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue, so it is best for those seeking a relaxing experience.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage employs firmer pressure, targeting deeper layers of muscle to reduce tension in problem areas. Deep tissue is a great companion to strength training–breaking up post-workout muscle adhesions speeds recovery and reduces soreness. It is also an ideal choice if you’re looking to address a specific muscle concern, such as an injury or an area of chronic stiffness.

Amma Therapy

Amma Therapy is a form of bodywork rooted in the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Amma offers the therapeutic benefit of massage with the ancient knowledge of TCM. Amma combines deep, therapeutic pressure with acu-point manipulation to access and address imbalance in the body according to Chinese medical theory. Depending on wants and needs of the client, sessions can include Cupping or Gua Sha

News & Events

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
