Lori McCoy Starr

life coach, nutritional advisor, Wellness Advocate

Lori Starr has been a licensed massage therapist since 1994.  She has practiced massage in California, Arizona, and North Carolina.  


The Cosmic Groove Massage developed as a means to share her love of massage therapy with the Asheville community.  As the initial massage therapist of The Cosmic Groove, she feels a special connection with the clients who have supported the business since the beginning.  


Creating an environment where massage therapists are able to express their unique talents while also providing quality affordable services to the community was and still is an important factor in the business operation. 


Although you will not find her doing much hands on massage therapy these days, she continues to educate herself in all healing modalities.  In 2018, she will be offering yoga classes at the Hendersonville location along with a variety of workshops and seminars for those interested in the various arenas of health and wellness.  She will also be offering wellness coaching/advocacy at the South Asheville/Arden location.   She is an emerging force in the health and wellness field.
