who we are

Meet the Founder

 Diana Whye, LMT - Founder, President, Lead Therapist


A Licensed Massage Therapist since 2015, Ms. Whye realized early in her journey to become a massage therapist that she had more to offer the industry than a sincere desire to help heal people through the power of heart-centered touch.  Armed with her LMT certification, a degree in Business from Regis University and a highly successful 20-year background in business and non-profit management, Ms. Whye began what would become a two-year dream to provide a safe and nurturing environment where massage therapists would have an opportunity to enhance their technical skills while learning solid business practices that would ensure their ability be successful in their chosen profession.


Ms. Whye spent those two years honing her technical skills by performing day-to-day hands-on massage at various sites, including Buckley Air Force Base Fitness Center, Colorado Veterans Community Living Center and YMCA Southwest, to name a few.  She also taught the Business class at an accredited Colorado massage school for several semesters.  These experiences were critical to gaining a deeper understanding of what massage therapists experience on a daily basis as they attempt to position themselves as successful entrepreneurs.  Armed with a solid understanding of the challenges they faced, Ms. Whye decided to “put her money where her mouth was,” and sold her home to fund the Essence of Life Massage & Wellness Center, Inc.’s “Earn & Learn” Program designed to support the future success of massage therapists.


EOL will manifest the dream of its Founder on January 2, 2018 when the inaugural cohort of Licensed Massage Therapists will begin their year-long program.  History and sheer determination to change the narrative of massage therapist education will determine whether the dream will become a reality.


EOL’s future plans include the establishment of a 501(c)(3) foundation that will support the expansion of massage education in the low-income community.
