I graduated from Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School in Urbandale, IA in 2013. My tailored 850 Hour Massage Therapy Certification Program included a wide variety of massage and bodywork modalities in both Eastern and Western techniques. Along with 500 hours of core curriculum, my elective coursework included deep tissue, aromatherapy, reflexology, lymphatic drainage, hydrotherapy, bamboo massage, rebalancing, infant massage, and European and Asian spa specialties. I have since continued training in hot stone therapy, prenatal and sports massage. I look forward to adding more modalities soon! I am also First Aid and CPR certified and have been previously licensed in Overland Park, KS and Missouri. Prior to starting my career in massage therapy, I obtained my Bachelor of Liberal Studies from Iowa State University in 2006.

Along with massage, I am passionate about practicing and teaching yoga, I obtained my RYT 200 in 2015 for Power Yoga from Core Energy in Overland Park, KS. I also enjoy reading, traveling, live music, and spending time with my husband and our infant daughter, extended family and friends.

Crystal is so knowledgeable and always has me feeling great for days afterwards. I moved to Iowa City and haven’t been able to find anyone even close to as good as Crystal.

I went in this week and listed my problem areas to Crystal. She worked her magic and I feel infinitely better than when I went in. I highly recommend her practice!
