Starlena Barnes is the owner and founder of Hideaway Retreat. Hideaway Retreat is conveniently nestled in a cozy space located in Raleigh, NC. Starlena is a passionate and intuitive Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist. Her long term goal is to create an oasis where locals can hideaway from their daily stress, and take the time for themselves to unwind & reset.

Starlena started this journey at Miller-Motte Cary in 2016. Originally she went into Massage Therapy with the goal of supporting her family; while fulfilling her desire to help others with  natural pain management. Little did she know, it would generate a spiraling affect of having a creative vision & driven passion to be a business owner.

Through her practice, Starlena thrives to incorporate the details in each session. She offers a customized approach to each session by using hot towels on your back, hot towel foot wraps, and heated neck & eye pillows. She listens to her clients needs, and prioritizes their comfort level.
