Thank you so much for checking us out, please have a look around! My name is LaDonna and I am the founder and proud owner of Sensible Kneads Massage, LLC. I am a Native Seattle-ite and now call the desert my home, but forever a Seahawks fan! Don't drink the haterade, lol :)

More importantly, I am a furiously passionate Massage Therapist. I'm committed to delivering you the highest quality massage therapy treatments available with honesty and integrity, within an environment that calms the body and awakens all the senses. 

We don't offer just a service…

We offer an experience. We pay attention to the details that matter most to you. Each session is tailored by drawing from a variety of therapeutic massage and bodywork techniques addressing specific patterns of pain, tension & distress. Your session is designed to meet YOUR specific needs and therapeutic goals. Whether it's relaxation, restoring structural balance, increase range of motion, pain relief, etc. You can expect your needs and expectations to be exceeded.


At Sensible Kneads Massage, we pride ourselves at efficiently carrying out safe, effective, long lasting treatments that leave our guests appreciating the powerful healing benefits of massage therapy, feeling uplifted, stress free and rebalanced.

Our guests entrust us to ease their discomfort, we cherish that trust & take that responsibility to heart. Our passion & purpose are to have a positive impact on people's lives, one beautiful soul at a time. My personal goal at Sensible Kneads Massage is to create a healing environment, where our guests feel at peace within themselves & experience optimum healing & therapeutic benefits.

One of our top priorities is to encourage wellness & good health so you can feel good & function at your best. Studies show our well-being comes from our physical, mental & spiritual health. Achieving balance within the body can prevent health problems from occurring. Getting a massage is a way to escape our reality in a healthy way, with time to relax, let go & quiet our minds.

Adjusting to Change Without Compromise

While some things have changed, our commitment to your health & safety has remained the same, always being our top priority. We are doing our very best to customize the delivery of your care as safely as possible.

We continue to follow recommendations made by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC). You will see some changes we've made to help protect our clients, guests & neighboring tenants when it comes time for your next appointment.

1. It's required by AMTA to sign & date a brief screening questionnaire on your FIRST VISIT ONLY. OR your first visit back since re-opening. Temperatures will also be taken each visit.

2. Wearing face masks in our studio are strongly encouraged to be worn in the face-up position during your session. Disposable face masks & hand sanitizer are available for you in our studio. We highly respect your decision to be vaccinated or not. We don’t ask nor do we assume, as it's a very personal choice. For those who have been fully vaccinated, we offer you the choice of not wearing a mask or face covering, we as Therapists will continue to wear a mask during all sessions.

3. Prior to your session, you'll be able to wait in a safe, social-distancing lobby to avoid the heat. There may be less seating available, so please come by yourself when possible. 

4. Appointments will be managed to allow social distancing of clients & avoid back to back sessions. This also gives us time to extensively clean & sanitize our studio in between sessions.

5. For convenience, payments & updating/filling out new client information will be streamlined (as much as possible) to text & email. We will take cash, if that's your preference. We also take credit cards & payments via Venmo, Zelle & Cash App.

We SO look forward to seeing you! We're EXCITED to still be doing what we LOVE! We're happy to answer questions about the steps we take to keep you & our neighboring tenants safe in our practice & any other questions you may have.

Should you have any questions or want to book directly with one of our Licensed Massage Therapists, please call us directly at: 602-405-3848.

Thank you for your patience & understanding during this temporary transition. There is no higher value than your trust in us and our work and we cherish that. We look forward to welcoming back our clients, new guests, neighbors, & friends.

Our best wishes of health & happiness to you all!

Certified Medical Massage Practioner



I am excited to share that I have recently obtained my Master MMP (Medical Massage Practitioner) certification. To add to my repertoire, I will also be taking continuing education classes in Cupping and craniosacral therapy. I have worked alongside Certified Personal Trainers to better assist my more athletic clients to help prepare their body and mind for superior performance, help prevent injuries, reduce fatigue, improve endurance and promote flexibility. I am also a former Certified Personal Trainer myself. I love school and enjoy learning as much as possible. I am not much of a bragger, but I am very proud to say that I graduated with 4.0 GPA and was voted Class Valedictorian in Massage Therapy School. I am also in the (slow) process of obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Integrative Health.

LaDonna is simply amazing! She treats you with kindness and compassion. She definitely knows what she is doing and is very passionate about providing the best care for you as an individual.

Listened to my specific concerns and instituted specialized, targeted treatment to address them.

She focused on what was my problem areas but still went over everything! She is the best!! I had a 60 minute deep tissue and then ran 6 miles this morning and feel great!!

Very attentive and experienced

Deep is the right word for it. I have never had a better masseuse to target my time in my affected side (I’ve had a brain injury). I get off of the table feeling reignited for the future!
by Carolyn on Jul 23
LaDonna is so great. I started coming to Sensible Kneads in 2021 after I had developed some chronic back and shoulder pain due to working at my computer for long hours over the course of the pandemic. Every time I have come in for a massage, LaDonna has taken the time to talk with me about how I’m feeling and the options I have for addressing my pain. She makes me feel both very respected, and empowered to make the best decisions for me. I am super grateful to have found Sensible Kneads and LaDonna!

Thoroughly reviewed the issues I was experiencing, covered the mensy treatment options, communicated on a plan, and followed through.
by Vance on Jul 12
We have been going to Sensible Kneads for several years now and we always get a great session and massage customized to our liking.
by Shelby on Jul 03
Truly everything was wonderful. From start to finish this was an ideal experience. I especially appreciated how LaDonna took her time and did everything she could to make me feel comfortable and cared for. Can't wait for my next session!
