our massage practitioners




As a member of our Red Bank Acupuncture & Wellness Center massage staff for 13 years, Ivone Maria Ventura, LMT provides an incredibly deep healing and therapeutic massage experience. Her first focus is always on the most comfortable release of tension and pain tailored specifically for the individual needs of her clients. RBAC clients absolutely adore her work, especially for the added nurturing and special support she shares with each and every one of her clients.

Ivone is a 1999 graduate from the Center for Therapeutic Massage. Her training includes Swedish, deep tissue, and pre-natal massage. Dedicated to her work, she has completed many continuing education workshops which include courses in medical massage, geriatric techniques, and various stretch modalities.

Ivone is a graduate from Middlesex County College & attended Montclair University as an Education major. She is now applying this degree as she is offering educational workshops to our RBAC clients. Thus far, these include “Partner Massage” and “Hand & Foot Massage Techniques” – with more exciting and wonderful educational experiences to come!





Lauren Wright, LMT has been a member of the Red Bank Acupuncture & Wellness Center massage staff since 2005. She completed her studies and graduated from the Institute of Therapeutic Massage located in Red Bank in 2004.  Lauren offers the utmost care, kindness, support and follow-through with her clients. She provides the most incredible “neck work” on the planet. Some clients simply come in just to have her work on their neck and shoulders.

Lauren also applies the same expertise as she provides full body massage with a flowing, yet pin-point precision – locating the exact tight and tender places a person needs to have worked on to achieve lasting over-all pain relief and well-being. Her specialties include sports massage and deep tissue which she combines with the flowing, invigorating strokes of Swedish massage. Lauren is known for her unique approach, specially tailored and designed for each client. She is gentle when needed, and deep when appropriate.

She takes great pride in her work and is so thankful to have the opportunity to share her gifts with each client she touches. She has a degree in Business Administration from Brookdale Community College and is recently completed her nursing degree there as well.
