MEET OUR STAFF

Amanda Loughner

I graduated from CTA as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist in 2001. Through the years, I have enjoyed helping clients who suffer from chronic pain and special conditions. In 2014, I became a Certified Lash Technician and I love how extensions can enhance a client's natural beauty. Since having my little dumpling, Levi, in 2016 I have drastically cut back on the appointments I take but am still thrilled to help out with clients when needed. 

 

I started Loughner Massage & Lash Boutique July of 2009 after renting a small room for many years. We have grown from a studio that just offered massage, to a Day Spa that now offers facials, waxing, eyelash extensions, lash lifts, spray tanning, and more! And I am sure we are not done adding to that list. I can't wait to see where the next 10 years takes us!
