Shannon C. May is a Certified Massage Therapist, Bodyworker and Health Enhancement Coach in Aitkin MN. She prides herself on her ability to care and listen to the needs of others. She is well versed in anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, pathology, and ethics to name a few. Shannon is thoroughly trained in Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Massage, Acupressure, Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal and Infant Massage, Geriatric Massage, Sports Massage, Motivational Interviewing and Clinical Health and Wellness Coaching.  She believes in tailoring her work towards the individual needs of each client by using these multiple modalities to achieve optimum outcomes.   

Shannon graduated as a certified Massage Therapist from Sister Rosalind Gefre Schools and Clinics of Massage located in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2005.  She then moved back to Aitkin and immediately began therapy in a luxury spa.  In 2006, she started working in a Health Club setting and within a year started her own massage business.  By 2009 she added Life Coaching to her tool box of therapies and in 2014 became a certified Clinical Health Coach.

Shannon joined a partnership in 2010 and became a co-owner of The CAM Center, a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Center.  In January 2016 she became full owner of the business and renamed it In-Touch Therapy where she remains an active therapist and coach today.

Throughout the years she has had the honor to work with numerous people of all ages from infants to elderly.  Common challenges she faces with her clients are headaches, back pain, chronic muscle tension, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, personal injuries, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, scoliosis, neuropathy, lymphedema, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, difficult life changes, healthy eating and overall stress and chronic pain. Some of these challenges are physical, some are emotional and some are mental or psychological. No matter what type of personal struggle an individual may be experiencing, Shannon, in partnership with her clients, focuses her sessions on creating a change or a shift in the physical body along with empowering an individual towards personal growth, enlightenment, health and wellness.  With her nurturing touch, empathetic nature, passionate drive and medical approach, she has had hundreds of happy, satisfied clients over the years, many of whom still keep in touch with her today.

  It is her belief that a great Massage Therapist and Health Enhancement Coach is someone who has open ears, eyes and an open heart.  It is someone who focuses on empowering the client, someone who is well educated in their field of expertise as well as intuitive. Shannon is that someone. It is her belief that everyone has the power to heal themselves and with a little encouragement, support and guidance difficult situations can transform into enlightening experiences.
