Relax into Wellness

Massage therapy is a second career for me, having previously worked in Healthcare Management since the early 90's. While I loved doing administrative work, I grew to want to follow my passion for helping others heal in this busy world.

Massage therapy is a second career for me, having previously worked in Healthcare Management since the early 90's. While I loved doing administrative work, I grew to want to follow my passion for helping others heal in this busy world. My passion led me to relocate to a new city, going back to school at Blue Heron Academy and eventually to this career of hands-on work. I’ve worked as a Massage Therapist for Hospice patients for the past three years; incorporating Therapeutic Touch, Aromatherapy and Music Therapy to my sessions. I’ve also worked in Chiropractic, Salon and Corporate settings.  I currently work one day a week in the Steelcase Well Being Hub, working on employees with injuries. I am also a Certified Cupping Therapist. I feel my specialty is utilizing my various experience to meet my clients right where they are at and adjusting my massage techniques and pressure to that very appointment. I have experience in the following massage modalities: Cupping, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal, Swedish, Geriatric and Reflexology. I also do mobile massage therapy, where I mostly treat medical cases (auto accident, special needs cases).

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Penny on Feb 25
Very therapeutic but also relaxing. Worked on my concern areas and was great at finding tight muscles and working to release them. Had some great recommendations for the future (cupping etc.)

Brenda is a great therapist to work with! I have chronic back issues and have had a dozen different therapists, but Brenda has given me real results for pain management.

I’ve had such an amazing experience both with massage and cupping therapy from Brenda! Her space is relaxing and inviting and she has helped tremendously targeting problem areas in my back and neck. I would highly recommend her to anybody!

Brenda was fantastic! I've had problems with my neck and shoulders for years and she actually works the knots out!

Brenda did an amazing job. I went in with back pain that had been bothering me for awhile and she found my trouble spots right away. Her pressure was amazing. I was able to relax and get some much needed pain relief. I will be a long time customer!
