Connie Trica, LMT: Massage and Esthetics
Connie grew up on a ranch in rural Nevada, raising beef cattle. She graduated from High School in 1995 and enlisted in the US Navy. Thirteen years in the Navy took her up and down the East Coast and around the world on the aircraft carrier USS George Washington. At that time, she made the decision to separate from the Navy and took a position at an electrical power plant in Dickerson, MD. She settled in Frederick, MD and was very happy. After suffering an injury at work, and realizing that she needed to make a life change, she decided to take a chance and enrolled in the Central Maryland School of Massage. Graduating in October of 2012, she completed her licensing requirements and started work as a massage therapist. She has found this work to be amazing, and decided to add skin care specialties to her list of skills. She attended The Baltimore School of Massage’s Steiner Institute of Esthetics and received her Esthetician’s license in November 2014. She is excited to add facials, waxing and body services to her list of services.
Samantha L. Francis, M.Ac., L.Ac. , Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM): Acupuncture and aromatherapy
Sam discovered acupuncture when she needed help in resolving severe pelvic pain. A few years later, she was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme disease and used acupuncture to help keep her going through harsh antibiotic treatment. After her recovery, she decided to change careers from software testing to the health care field. Acupuncture made the most sense for her since she had such great results personally from treatment, and the philosophies and holistic approach made sense to her. After completing her 3.5 year Master’s degree in acupuncture, she has since pursued training in Facial Rejuvenation, Balance Method, and aromatherapy. She is currently working on her Doctorate in Acupuncture in order to bring a more integrative approach to her work.
