I became a massage therapist because I love helping people. Even as a young child, I enjoyed massaging my own family members. Through ten years working in busy spas, I have experienced firsthand how much massage therapy can support an individual’s overall health. Being a professional therapist allows me to give each client the personalized service they need from massage. I enjoy helping clients feel better and achieve the healing they are seeking. My own experiences as an athlete, hardworking individual, coupled with my knowledge of the body, helps me to understand and serve each client’s individual needs. I love the outdoors. Swimming, camping, riding horses, and watching comedy movies. Some of my favorite styles of massage include Deep Tissue, Reflexology, and Neuromuscular Therapy.

My life’s journey has led me down many different roads, but my interest has always been to help others. I have served in the massage field for almost 30 years. During this time, I found that not only have my techniques grown, but I also discovered a skill for explaining what I was doing, and its implications to both clients and students.
After a college football injury, I found massage to be an integral part of my healing process. It eased tightness, helped me relax and got me back to enjoying life. I wanted to bring this work to others, so I enrolled in the Somerset School of Massage Therapy in central New Jersey. It was during this time that I gained a lifelong passion for massage.
This passion led me to teaching a variety of classes at the massage certification level and Continuing Education level. Currently, I enjoy teaching Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) to licensed massage therapists and providing sessions for my clients. Some of my favorite styles of massage include Neuromuscular Therapy and Therapeutic Massage.
Here’s to your health!
In 1996, I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis—a cousin to Rheumatoid. My joints and body began to hurt most of the time, despite shots and medication. I found that if I got up and moved, I felt better. If I got a massage on a regular basis, I felt even better. I wanted to share this enthusiasm for feeling my best with others, so in 2008 I founded Carole Lilly Massage.
I started offering therapeutic massage sessions in a small treatment room all by myself. I began taking as many advanced massage courses as I could, and brought these new techniques back to my sessions where we were seeing great results. This sparked a lifelong passion for education and a “beginner’s mind” curiosity in my approach to massage. Currently, I support clients in areas of relaxation, pain relief and ongoing maintenance. Some of my favorite styles of massage include Esalen Massage, Therapeutic Massage and Myofascial Release. Today, we have grown and expanded into our larger home at the McGuire Health Building with a diverse group of massage therapists and services. Our family of therapists share my passion and devotion to advanced massage training and practice.
