In May 2018 Marnie Lyon with Rocky Mountain Fit and Blaire Hall of Lavender House Massage joined forces to provide tailored experiences for their clients. Marnie and Blaire want to be an active force helping clients enjoy more birthdays with less pain, thereby improving and increasing the treasures of life.
After a short time, Marnie and Blaire knew they shared the same vision, and so, The Happy Lyon Center was born in October 2018. Marnie and Blaire had both moved to Manhattan, MT at the end of 2017 and have since fallen in love with the best little town in Montana.

“Marnie is the biggest idea person you'll ever meet, and is literally the happiest Lyon” Massage Therapist, Blaire Hall, states of her business partner. After a few months of running through many ideas with Marnie, Blaire's son asked, "How many businesses are there? She should have it all grouped into Lyon Companies!” In just a few days time we settled on The Happy Lyon.
