We are proud to announce that Chamber Member ANEW MASSAGE, LLC recently was Voted #1 in Therapeutic Massage in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal’s Best of the Best 2020 contest. These awards celebrate and recognize the best the Spartanburg area community has to offer. Only the top businesses in each category make it to the final voting stage. Anew Massage is locally owned and operated by Clysta K. Clark right here in Inman SC at 11064 Asheville Highway, Suite A105.
As the owner of ANEW Massage, LLC, Clysta Clark, LMBT, does much more than therapeutic massage, she specializes in therapeutic massage services from goal-orientated sessions to relaxation therapy and Oncology massage. Sessions are customized, integrating various modalities designed to increase range of motion, remove trigger points, reduce stressor achieve other goals.
“My company is a local small business and I live in the community I serve, which is very important to me,” Clark said. “I have several clients that have referred every member of their family to me for treatment. It’s so very rewarding.”
A native of Swanton, Vermont, Clark moved to the Upstate 28 years ago, settling in Inman, SC, a community similar in size and character to her hometown. She attended Spartanburg Community College earning an Associate Degree in Applied Science Management with Marketing that gave her the skills to run her own business.
Clark not only serves her community professionally but also as a volunteer with organizations such as the Greater Inman Area Chamber of Commerce, Habitat for Humanity and Spartanburg County Parks and Recreation. She is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, Society of Oncology Massage, and Oncology of the Carolinas.
When not working, Clark enjoys photography and being in nature. But her favorite job is being Mimi to grandchildren Gavin, Liam and Emma.
The Chamber welcomes Sonja Parker of Edward Jones Investments. Sonja will meet with you to learn your individual needs and develop a strategy to help you achieve your long-term financial goals. Whether you want to plan for retirement, save for college, reduce your tax bills or ensure you have income to cover your expenses, you can expect personalized service and long-term investing strategies instead of the latest investment fads.
Sonja is originally from Ohio and loves living life to the fullest by doing activities such as hiking, bike riding, traveling, snow skiing, roller skating, reading, and most importantly, spending time with friends and family. Regarding her community volunteer work, Sonja says “it brings me so much joy by seeing people change their lives for the better.”
This is Sonja’s first experience with Edward Jones and says, “and what initially drew me to a career here, was the culture, support, and environment they create for their clients and their employees.” “The amount of personalized care and attention that is given to each client is unsurpassed in this industry. Sonja worked for some of the largest banks in the U.S. with some of the largest footprints in the world, as well as in the pharmaceutical industry. Through these experiences, she feels like she is “in the right place, and Edward Jones has given me the tools and support to make a real difference in the lives of my clients.”
