PAGONA XENOS, LMT CFST

LEAD THERAPIST / OWNER

Pagona XenosPagona offers a unique background and highly-personalized treatment to each of her clients. Since graduating with her massage therapy certification in 1997, she’s remained dedicated to her continuing education and professional training, developing numerous specialties along the way including: Sports Massage Therapy, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy and her personal favorite, Prenatal Massage.

Pagona’s background is in speech & language pathology, where she worked primarily with autistic children. In her own life, Pagona has given birth to 2 wonderful children and her birthing story has formed a new part of the core mission at Wellspring (read more about her birthing story and our pregnancy/mommy services here).

After completing her schooling in massage therapy, Pagona was fortunate to begin working with masters in the fields of Neuromuscular and Deep Tissue Therapy. This enabled her to specialize in physical rehabilitation. She also became an integral part of the success at the highly specialized Kai Zen Medical Group with Dr. Steve Hruby before opening her own practice in 2010.

Outside of her professional pursuits, Pagona is deeply committed to charity work: she raises money and volunteers her time for the Guerrant Foundation, which provides microloans to women in third world countries and helps them start their own businesses.

Her other passion is travel. She travels to her homeland, Greece, and other locales frequently each year, bringing friends and Wellspring members on retreats and adventures…showing them a local side of the experience that few ever get to see.

It is also what has inspired her to feature many local, organic products from Greece in our Wellspring clinic, products made especially by entrepreneurial women such as herself. The products featured include Lia Rare Greek Olive Oil, Daphnis & Chloe Herbs & Teas, Hellenic Farms Honey Bars, Calliopi Fine Jewelry, and more.
