Founder and co-owner of Journeys, Doug Arter decided early in his massage therapy career that he wanted to start his own business. Doug’s interest in Therapeutic Massage began with an interest in Sports Therapies.

Having participated in organized and “pick up” sports since early childhood, he soon realized the benefits of massage in athletics as well as everyday life. Upon receiving his certification in Massage Therapy in Philadelphia, Doug had the opportunity to practice his newly learned profession while planning a relocation to the Virgin Islands with his girlfriend (now wife!)

While working at Long Bay Resort Spa on Tortola, Doug was able to enhance his skills in intuitive therapeutic massage, enrolling in continuing education courses and working with clients from all over the world. During this time, Journeys Health Spa was spawned and came to life in 2003.
