Hi, my name is Ronda Kvigne.  The mission of True North Massage & Wellness is to assist you on a journey of true wellness. I named my practice True North because each of us have an internal compass of knowing our truth but may have lost our way due to various life circumstances and are living our life far from our fullest & highest potential. So often, the emotions of fear and pain that we have carried over this lifetime have not been released and remain trapped within the tissues of the body and they set the course for disease. I like to refer to disease as nothing more than “Dis-Ease” and disharmony. I have spent over 10 years learning how trapped emotions on the physical and emotional realm can spiral into a state of low-grade depression and anger, to full devastation within the psyche. 


I would like to assist you in your health and emotional journey. Every person is unique in their needs and every session is tailored to meet you. Please take a look at the services I provide along with the add-ons that are available to enhance your session.  I also offer Colon Hydrotherapy at my Dell Rapids location.


I want to help you “FIND YOUR TRUE NORTH”.

Therapeutic Touch

Over the years I have discovered that every therapist has their own style of touch. Massage is truly an art. The massage technique I offer is not a “one size fits all” approach. Along with the information relayed by the client during the intake process, I work intuitively and let my hands work that which needs focus. Every massage is tailored to your needs. If you want upper body only, that is where we focus. I will make suggestions and allow you to determine the focus areas. So often I have heard clients report that they didn’t feel the massage therapist listened to them and they left with a sense of frustration. Overall, I systematically combine deep therapeutic massage you need with light relaxation massage that you want.

Pregnancy

There is nothing more precious than working with expectant mothers. Pregnancy massage is always an art form in itself. During this massage I use pillows and allow the expectant mother to position herself to her level of comfort and I work around her while keeping appropriate draping. Again, like the explanation with therapeutic massage, I let the mother determine the focus areas to be worked. Often, the focus is generally the hips, back and neck. I focus on fluid movement with no unexpected “jerky” movements.

Swedish Massage

This is the most well-known and widely practiced type of therapeutic massage. This type of massage focuses on muscle relaxation and increasing blood circulation. Long stroking motions called effleurage are used to move the direction of the blood flow to the heart. This increased blood flow means that your muscles are getting more nutrients and oxygen which helps your body move toxins more efficiently. The benefits of Swedish massage include: pain management, increased blood flow, rehabilitation for muscle injuries, increased flexibility, reduced stress, and improved immune system. Swedish mass is a great way to treat yourself - but it's also a lot more than that. The physical and mental health benefits of a Swedish massage make it a great option for those new to massage or someone looking to a complete massage experience.

Accupressure

I incorporate accupressure massage techniques using fingers, elbows, and palms to apply pressure to the body's acupoints on the body's meridians. I find these areas often hold the trapped energy of tension and emotions. I focus on getting clients to relax and breathe while I massage the acupoints with the intension of releasing the "trapped energy". By activating these points, the body is signaled to "turn on" its own self-healing mechanisms. Qi which is known as vital energy circulates through natural pathways in the body called meridians. Blockage of this flow can cause illness and pain. Keeping these pathways open allows the body to return to a natural state of balance and well-being.

Assisted Stretch

I can not say enough good about this service. Often alternate massage and go for a stretch session because it is that beneficial in helping me maintain my body as a massage therapist. Assisted stretching can improve range of motion, increase flexibility (and help prevent injury), get rid of general aches and pains, improve posture, increase blood flow and oxygen to the muscles, improve digestion, and help you relax. It truly opens up and decompresses the body! During an assisted stretch session I will go through a series of 9-10 stretches. Stretch sessions are offered in 30 or 60 minute sessions.

Great blend of light and hard pressure. I love deep tissue as that’s the only form that seems to actually work my large muscle mass. She did great
