Hi!

My name is Celeste Kaufman, I am a graduate of Cortiva Institute 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 6 years in sales.

I have wanted to be a massage therapist ever 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 6 years in insurance I became plagued with migraines.  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'm grateful everyday for being able to help people feel better, for the flexibility to spend time with my family, while still being able to provide.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 daughters.  We love camping, fishing, anything in the great outdoors!

Experience

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, upper back & neck pain. I am deeply grateful for the ability to help people become free from pain.

Celeste has a very soothing touch which made me very relaxed. I asked for emphasis in certain areas and still felt that I got a total body message. She is extremely professional and I recommend her strongly.

Celeste has helped me so much. She is fantastic. If you have a problem area she will focus on that area. She has an understanding of the body and knows the pressure points. I highly recommend her and I look forward to my next visit.
