Marybeth has been in customer service and retail for as long as she can remember, making her natural fit (and our first hire!) when we opened Del Soul. Marybeth keeps the front-end running smoothly, but that’s not where her job ends. She is the warm welcome you receive when entering our doors, the voice of hospitality between sessions, and the smooth transition back into the real world on your way out. Marybeth has earned her title as our resident “spa mom,” and prides herself on making every client feel at ease from the moment they enter our home until the time they leave.

Andrea Amato

licensed massage therapist

Andrea has been a licensed massage therapist for almost 10 years. She graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2010 and has been regularly working as a therapist since then. Her specialty and focus is on therapeutic deep tissue for orthopedic impairments, chronic pain, and minor soft tissue ailments from everyday repetitious strain or from previous injury. Her work is specific and geared towards rehabilitation and pain management, but she can also work the whole body to induce the parasympathetic nervous system for a complete mind/body relaxation. She has worked in medical and spa settings and incorporates aspects of both in each of her sessions. She is currently continuing her education to become a physical therapist’s assistant, so the added education in health and exercise science makes her well suited to deal with certain soft tissue impairments and joint immobilizations.
