Evolve Homewood

Holistic Wellness Studio
& Boutique

Evolve Homewood began as a small, family owned massage studio focused on deep tissue and pain management. As we grow, we are excited to offer different healing modalities for our clientele, from Reiki to Health Coaching to Facial services, with more on the way.

Our Boutique is full of beautiful crystals, unique jewelry, handmade candles, small batch soaps and bath products, local goods, supplements, books, and more.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer something truly unique to our little city, and are excited about nurturing the already growing community of Holistic Wellness.

Holistic Wellness

So many of us have gotten lost in the chronic anxiety of our modern lifestyle. Holistic Wellness is about slowing down for a minute, paying attention to your body, breathing deeply and being mindful. Many chronic pain issues as well as a myriad of other physical and emotional difficulties can be eased by intentional self care. Massage is an integral part of that self care and one of the best places to start.

Whether your journey into caring for yourself brings you in for massage or leads you to seeking Reiki healing, joining Valerie’s Health Coaching program, caring for your skin with our Facial services, learning how to practice Reiki yourself, or bringing ritual, beauty, and healing energy into your home with the crystals, jewelry, candles, and other incredible products in our Boutique, Evolve Homewood has what you need to help you on your self-healing path.

Service Menu & Pricing

Therapeutic Massage

Chronic muscular pain is a real problem for a lot of us, and pills or surgery are usually not the right answer. People in chronic pain are often caught in an endless revolving door of “quick fixes”. Massage can often relieve muscular pain and in the process teach you about your body in a way that will give you the knowledge you need to change your lifestyle so that you can heal yourself and feel better longterm.

“We are passionate about helping you feel better. We are not only going to use our expertise to release tight, knotted muscles, but we will also council you in stretching and meditation techniques to take home with you so you can make marked improvements even between sessions.
Pain is NOT a given side effect of aging… often it is a choice. We can help you understand what that means and how to make choices to manage and eventually relieve your daily pain.” -Michael

I've been going to Ian for deep tissue massages and Reiki Readings, since the spring. He's so knowledgeable, and intuitive, when he works with me, that he has released muscles and blockages that have bothered me for ages. I can't say enough good things about Ian, and everyone at Evolve!

Ian, as well as the entire crew, are awesome! Wonderful experience. I highly recommend Evolve.

If you suffer from chronic pain or musculoskeletal issues, Ian is the best!! He is able to have an entire conversation with my muscles and joints, and I feel soooo much better once I finish. He has quite the gift!!

I had a reiki appointment with Jenna and it was incredible. She was very nice and explained the process thoroughly. She made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions. I felt amazing afterwards and she had a lot of helpful ideas. Everyone at Evolve was very friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for a really great deep tissue massage, then Ian Krusinski is the one you want. The 60 minute massage was great! Ian really worked on the two areas I had indicated beforehand, getting my muscles to unbundle and relax. He truly has ‘magic’ hands.
