White Stone, a new massage therapy spa located in Wabash, is now offering locals pain relief and relaxation.

Roann native Shawnté Frieden opened the business at 999 Manchester Ave. in May, taking over the former location of the Body Connection.

“My massage technique is therapy and relaxation together,” Frieden told The Paper of Wabash County. “My belief is the muscles are going to heal better when they’re in a relaxed state. So I try to blend them in together because I find that it is more beneficial.”

Road construction didn’t halt Wabash County youths’ first day of school on Wednesday, Aug. 9, though it did prove to be an obstacle.
