Hi!

My name is Celeste Kaufman,

I am a graduate of Cortiva Institute from their 720 hour massage program completed in April 2016.  I have a bachelor's degree from Northern Arizona University in Hotel & Restaurant Management.

I have 15+ years customer service experience in hospitality.  Of which, 5 years in management and 7 years in sales.

I have wanted to be a massage therapist since I graduated college, but I was encouraged to pursue my career in restaurant management.  It was a good career for me at the time.  I decided later that I wanted to have a family and the 60-hour work week in the restaurant industry wouldn't allow me the time to spend with family, so went into the insurance industry.  After working for more than 7 years in insurance I became plagued with migraines and hormonal imbalances.  I started to take a holistic approach to my wellness which prompted my decision follow up on my desire to become a massage therapist, that was put on hold so long ago.  I absolutely love being a massage therapist because of the gratitude I get from helping people feel better!

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband Jesse and 2 daughters, Isabelle and Kaili!  We love camping, fishing, being out on the lake, anything in the great outdoors!

Medical

Having worked for Chiropractors, I have been able to practice massage from a medical point of view. I have become experienced in developing treatment plans. Using my knowledge of the structures of the body, I have been able to help people who are suffering from pain. The most common types of complaints people have are low back pain that shoots down 1 or both legs, and upper back & neck pain. I am deeply grateful for the ability to help people become free from pain.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Mark on Jul 08
I've a lot of pain in my shoulders/upper back and Celeste was great at identifying and working those problem areas, deeply and effectively. She is easy to communicate with and has a genuine interest in helping her clients alleviate pain through effective and knowledgable massage therapy. Already looking forward to my next appointment. Would 100% recommend her to family and friends. Cheers, Mark
