My journey as a massage therapist began in 1990.  I was a single mother of 2, looking for a rewarding career that also paid enough to support my family.  After the birth of my second son, I suffered from a pinched nerve and herniated disc in my low back.  Doctors gave me a 2% chance of walking without surgery.  I wasn't sure I believed that so looked into alternative health care.  With the help of chiropractic care and self massage/acupressure, my back healed.  Doctors thought it was a miracl...

My journey as a massage therapist began in 1990.  I was a single mother of 2, looking for a rewarding career that also paid enough to support my family.  After the birth of my second son, I suffered from a pinched nerve and herniated disc in my low back.  Doctors gave me a 2% chance of walking without surgery.  I wasn't sure I believed that so looked into alternative health care.  With the help of chiropractic care and self massage/acupressure, my back healed.  Doctors thought it was a miracle.  I thought it was normal.  I believed given the help and right care, the body frequently can heal itself.  This experience attracted me to the alternative health care field.  I attended the Minneapolis School of Massage for basic training. Following school I worked for 2 years at the Aveda Spa in Osceola, WI.  In 1992 I opened my own business, Balanced Body Balanced Life in Lindstrom, MN.   Over the years I have furthered my education in many modalities including:

Acupressure
Aromatherapy
Deep/Connective Tissue/Sports Massage
Advanced Cranio Sacral Therapy
Somato Emotional Release
Myofascial Release I (MFR)
MFR II
MFR Fascial-Pelvis
MFR Cervical Thoracic
MFR Unwinding
MFR Rebounding
5 Elements
Chinese Detoxification Abdominal Massage (Chi Nei Tsang)
Foot/Hand Reflexology
Reiki Master
Scalp Massage
Manual Lymph Drainage
MPS Scar Release Therapy (SRT)
ETPS Neuromechanical Therapy

While I LOVE my work, I also have a passion for creating and designing mobiles and jewelry based on Feng Shui and 5 Elements.  You can find some of them on my web site at:  www.transcendingart.com and Etsy.  I hope to hear from you.

LaRea has an AMAZING gift of healing. While I love her deep tissue massage, I am LOVING her Thai Yoga massage. Having done athletics a lot in my younger years, I have joints and muscles that don't quite move how they "should." After one session of the thai yoga I can already feel a huge difference in how my joints and muscles move. If you want a life transformational experience, go to LaRae.

That was the most complete deep tissue massage I've ever had. Who knew there were so many pressure points that needed attention and could feel so much better after?
