Lemar Story, a CO.STARTERS alum and finalist in the inaugural The Big Pitch presented by PNC, recently opened a brick and mortar location for Life Touch Massage. If you’re looking for a great massage, head to the Parkside District. You’ll find him at 1223 2nd Avenue South. Moving into the city of Birmingham in his own space was Lemar’s dream when he first sought services from REV. We’re thrilled to see his dream come to fruition!
