About Kalia Rouse

Kalia was born and raised in Nashville and in Ashland City Tn. She graduated high school from Cheatham Central in 07’. Went to college at Lipscomb University to pursue a degree in psychiatry and quickly found out that it wasn’t her passion. While working at Red Lobster her coworkers told her to look into massage therapy, since she was always giving them shoulder massages when they were hurting at work. Kalia never thought about it until then but recollected that her entire adolescent years she was always massaging her family and friends’ feet and hands. So naturally she felt maybe this was a gift that God gave her and that she needed to look more into the massage world. She fell in love and knew that this was the career path that she quickly became very passionate about. Now, she has been practicing massage therapy since 2010. Graduated from Anthem Career College and in 2018 became a Medical Massage Practitioner. Kalia started her massage career at Massage Envy in Green Hills and Hendersonville locations. When she got over a year under her belt she left and joined Mokara Spa at the Omni hotel in 2013. She has also worked for Woodhouse and Style Bar and Spa in Nashville. While still working part time at Mokara, she is excited to finally able to work for herself. Opening Maypop Massage & Wellness has been a dream of hers for some time now and to be able to be in the heart of downtown Nashville is the cherry on top. In Kalia’s spare time you will find her taking care of her 4 bulldog fur babies and enjoying time with her family and friends. Her and her husband love to travel and enjoy sports, great food and whisky. She is excited to start this new chapter in her life while continuing to learn and grow to become the best holistic therapist she can be.
