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.

LaRae was amazing, I was surprised at her ability to work my neck issues related to poor posture. Every day since my neck continues to improve from just one visit. I plan to go at least once a month.
