Janae Kerr, was born and raised in Sterling, CO.  She was a dental assistant for 12 years.  Back in 2009 when the economy had its downturn, the dentist was seeing a lot of clients for clenching and grinding and stress related teeth issues.  He would refer the patients out for a massage.  That inspired her to get her license to practice massage therapy.  She worked as a dental assistant during the day and took night classes.  She graduated from Healing Arts Institute in Fort Collins, CO in June 2012.  She decided to make a change and leave the dental field.  She moved home to Sterling, where she practiced out of her house for 5 years of her massage career.  She decided it was time to expand her career and move her practice out of her house.  In April 2018 she bought Back in Balance and changed the name to Genesis Massage and Spa.  She loves the atmosphere and clients and being able to aid in one’s health and healing.  

Mandy Grippin, believes in the mind and the body’s ability to heal itself and utilizes her passion and her intuition  to assist in this process. She combines that notion with her formal education from the Healing Arts Institute in Fort Collins to provide a tranquil, therapeutic, and effective massage.    Mandy is constantly encouraged by the results she sees and strives for perfection. She knows there is always something that can be improved, within herself and her clients, and gladly welcomes the challenges that accompany them.   “Touch was never meant to be a luxury. It is a basic human need. It is an action that validates life and gives hope to both the receiver and the giver. The healing of touch is reciprocal.” – Irene Smith
