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

Enjoyed the whole experience. Loved the warm bed!

Celeste remembers and responds to my requests as to which area I'd like her to work on and how much pressure. Feels great and since I have a bit of numbness in my toes, I think it is dissipating.

I like her professionalism and her skills are outstanding! I recommend her to anyone looking for a perfect massage.

Celeste understands the muscle and tendon structure so well and adjusts her massage to relieve the tightness where it is needed—in my case my hip and all muscles around the hip socket. Because of her skills and massage therapy I’m able to function so much better.

Been a client of Celeste's for a number of years; even was able to track her down after she moved from previous employer. AND, so very happy I was. Very dependable, very accommodating! SK
