About Us

Shakia "Kia" Batten is a Licensed Massage Therapist.  She graduated from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2008. She is experienced in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, and Prenatal massage techniques. She is known to be an intuition massage therapist; she only can go as far as your muscles allow me to. She focuses on what your needs are for relaxation, healing, or both. Kia decided to become an independent contractor because she wanted the freedom to be able to help my clients to the best of her ability.

Shakia is passionate about health and wellness. Mrs. Batten's customized treatments incorporate blending Western massage techniques with focused sports massage and neuromuscular therapy, depending on the needs, wants, and mood of the patrons. She is dedicated to making sure that every client is satisfied with their bodywork that is being performed. She is the founder and owner of Artz of Massage LLC.  Being a Massage Therapist has given her the freedom and flexibility to spend time with her family and work around my client’s full-time schedule. It's like a dream come true that she is able to support parents, retired, and regular 9 to 5 errs. Everyone KNEADS a massage but being able to work around their schedule just makes it so much sweeter.
