Tara Marie Rigger licensed massage therapist and certified cupping therapist offers customized healing sessions focused on relieving pain, tension, and dysfunction within the body in order to bring balance and healing to the whole person. Tara facilitates this healing through therapeutic massage, cupping therapy, neuromuscular reintegration technique, and many other modalities and techniques. She provides a safe and nurturing environment for her clients. Tara has over 11 years of experience with therapeutic and intuitive healing. She focuses on chronic and acute pain management, tension release and structural alignment. 

Tara attended Professional Massage Training Center and graduated in March of 2006. During that time she also received Reiki Level 1 and 2 attunements which she continues to utilize as an important part of her massage practice.

Tara started her massage therapy career focused on sports massage and pain management. She now integrates many modalities into each session and uses intuition to facilitate healing for her clients. Some of the modalities offered are cupping, neuromuscular reintegration, reflexology, aromatherapy, thai massage and Reiki energy work. Her practice is centered on the belief that everyone has an inherent human need for the healing power of therapeutic touch.  Tara honors and acknowledges every ones divine light and life journey. She respects her clients individual beliefs while providing a safe, nurturing and elevating environment to facilitate healing.

With over 11 years of experience and 183 hours of continuing education, Tara is dedicated to broadening and enhancing her healing practice. Tara is a Certified Cupping Therapist through the International Cupping Therapy Association with 44 CEU hours.  She is also certified in Neuromuscular Reintegration Technique (Bowen Therapy) and Bamoo-Fusion Massage.  Tara has training in reflexology, precision neuromuscular therapy, myofacial release, aromatherapy and Thai table massage.

Her first experience with the healing power of massage therapy was during her years as a dedicated violinist. It helped ease her over worked muscles but also had an affect on her overall energy levels, sleep patterns, and anxiety. Tara realized that through massage therapy she was able to heal in a more direct way and on a deeper level. 
While studying music education and violin performance at MSU, Tara had repeated pain associated with holding her instrument and decided to pursue massage therapy instead so that she could offer healing to others.

When Tara is not working she is spending time with her family, and is an avid outdoor enthusiast who likes to hike, kayak, and work on her gardens.

Same as above.

Tara has a very intuitive approach to cupping and massage. She understands where your body needs help and how to release your muscles for effective pain relief. I trust her and the advice she gives post massage really helps my body heal.

Tara's massages are always amazing. She is very kind, and extremely knowledgeable with massage. Her treatment is relaxed, with the perfect amount of pressure, and I always leave feeling reset.

This was my first massage and I was a little nervous but Tara put me at ease and made sure I felt comfortable. She wasn't too rough and made sure that I wasn't in pain. The reception and staff was also very friendly and calm. Loved it!

Tara is one of the best LMT's I know. I have been seeing her for years now. Her knowledge and professionalism is on point and her therapy is nothing less. The pressure is perfect and she always addresses my issues with a perfect balance of relaxation. The cupping too feels great and really breaks up the tension. Thank you Tara.
