Hello there, my name is Jai Lyons, a Licensed Massage Therapist and co-owner of Soda City Therapeutic Massage. I am passionate about helping people with highly demanding careers, like CEOs, caregivers, military personnel, office staff, medical providers, students, and anyone who may benefit from the work. I have always been passionate about caring for others regardless of which industry I worked in.

I worked as a chef and saucier at a country club for about 5 years, and it would bring me such delight when customers responded positively to my prepared dishes. However, I soon learned that people did not have the same appreciation for the effort that went into each dish. So, with the frustration of not feeling appreciated, I decided to change jobs. I began moving furniture locally and this allowed me to focus my attention on caring for other people's belongings. Eventually, I became my own boss and independent owner-operator and ventured out over the road. The physical labor of moving furniture up and down stairs and long hours of driving really took a toll on my body. I made it a priority to get frequent massages to help with this pain, which made a huge difference in my recovery and performance.

After being a truck driver and moving furniture for more than 20 years, I had a lot of chronic neck, shoulder, and lower back pain, which eventually led to surgery on my lower back in 2010. A few years later, I received a call from my dad saying he was hospitalized and for me to come to check on him. When I left Colorado for South Carolina, I knew my life was about to change significantly. When I saw my dad I saw myself. He was unable to walk and I wondered how I could help him, so I began to massage him every day for three weeks straight, and eventually, he was able to walk again. It was at that time that my dad told me, "You've got hands of gold and I need you to figure out what to do with them." We walked out of that VA hospital together and I continued on as my dad's sole caretaker. I met his nurse who would later become my wife. My dad eventually lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma.

Between truck driving and being my dad's caregiver, I realized the importance of massage therapy and its healing powers.

My dad's nurse encouraged me to enroll in Southeastern Institute. Despite my Dyslexia, I successfully completed the program and graduated in 2018. From there, I immediately began working for a massage franchise. Most of my repeat clients would make comments about how my bodywork alleviated various pain in their neck, shoulders, and back.

After 2 years of working for the franchise, I decided to branch out on my own to really concentrate on helping people with specific pain.

I have a genuine passion for helping people feel better and a commitment to the craft. I also received additional training in Gua Sha, trigger point therapy, and cupping which has contributed to my success with helping clients get relief from pain. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and granddaughter, cooking, doing DIY projects, being outdoors in the yard with our dog Repo, and writing poetry. I actually published my first poetry book in 2012 which you can purchase here.

Please reach out with any questions or to schedule your appointment, I look forward to meeting you soon and helping you work and live in comfort!
