My name is Ruth M. Schopper-Hughes. I am your personal therapist. I offer you professional, experienced and customized service in a private setting. My journey into wellness began following an auto accident at age 18.  A hospital stay with traction, pain pills and a neck brace failed to relieve my pain. I reluctantly took my mothers advice and went to see her Chiropractor.  On the first visit I  had a massage. Right away I knew I was on my way back to health.  The experience had a major impression on me.  At age 25 I literally woke up one day and decided to become a massage therapist. I graduated from the American Institute of Massage Therapy  in 1986.  My early career was spent as a chiropractic assistant, as well as a physical therapy assistant working in a hospital.  This early work instilled in me a passion to ease the pain in others. I worked in the luxury massage field for 9 years at the Ritz Carlton Hotel  This work taught me how to give the very best in customer care. At Safety Harbor Resort and Spa  I learned management skills and this position gave me exposure to the wonderful world of spa services. I took a hiatus to raise my children, then returned to work for Massage Envy There I learned valuble time management skills.

My passion for reflexology began in 1990 when I took my first phase of training with The International Institute of Reflexology  In 2012 I achieved my goal of becoming certified.

My dream of having my own practice began as a small mobile business in 2009.  I am now home in a wonderful serene setting located inside eEvolve Holistic Wellness Center  .  My spa treatment room is elegant, peaceful and exceptionally comfortable.
