"When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky." - Buddha

Bodywork was one of the modalities I used after a car accident in 1992. I was transformed by my massage therapist. Tissue that was stubborn and painful became soft and malleable. I wasn't just physically healing, I was introduced to my life calling.

I received exceptional hands-on training in 1997 and graduated after a 2 year program. At the start of my career while living in Wausau, Wisconsin, I worked with a group of women who helped shape my awareness of the importance of therapeutic touch...

Bodywork was one of the modalities I used after a car accident in 1992. I was transformed by my massage therapist. Tissue that was stubborn and painful became soft and malleable. I wasn't just physically healing, I was introduced to my life calling.

I received exceptional hands-on training in 1997 and graduated after a 2 year program. At the start of my career while living in Wausau, Wisconsin, I worked with a group of women who helped shape my awareness of the importance of therapeutic touch, holistic health, and always giving back to the community. They also influenced my drive for continuing education so that I can be my best for my clients.

Immersed in bodywork full-time for over 20 years, I continue to be grateful that massage is a part of every day for me. Since graduating, I have become certified in many different modalities including Neuromuscular Therapy, Reflexology, Tui Na, Swedish, Table Thai, Muscular Release Technique, Myofascial work for the upper body including mastectomy's, Aromatherapy, LaStone Therapy, Fire Glass Cupping, Myofascial Cupping and Reiki. These modalities and more have proven to me the transformative potential of therapeutic touch, breath work, proper nutrition, and mindfulness. 

My curiosity in healing doesn't stop with bodywork. I am a student at heart. Learning keeps me stimulated and alive. I am CPR and First Aid Certified. I have taken classes that work with movement, dry brushing, psychology behind healing, universal energy, Hospice care, stretching, acupressure, hypnotherapy, and even Ancient Chinese Astrology. Through this knowledge I offer my clients a customized approach to their sessions.

I am a Certified Mindfulness Facilitator, having completed a program with the prestigious Mindfulness Without Borders School. I have been able to spread the beauty of mindfulness by teaching 3 month workshops for adults and children. My approach to mindfulness honors where each person is in the moment. Teaching compassion for self and others, breath work, having a new perspective, finding gratitude, pain management, new approaches to communication, and creating resilience. I value Mindfulness as an evidence-based approach to a better lifestyle. In my professional life I enjoy bringing mindfulness into my bodywork sessions. Teaching my clients about meditation and how is can work holistically in our sessions. In my personal life, I practice mindfulness in my home with my husband and children. As well as Mindful Meditation, I have also been trained and offer Yoga Nidra to my clients.

I look forward to meeting the needs of my existing and new clients and customize sessions that work for them.

My first visit was nothing short of amazing. Tahnya took her time to get to know me and my areas of concern. The ambience was warm and calming and her skill and passion for what she does shines bright.

Tahnya has the skill and ability to zero in on exactly the area that needs treatment! She found areas in my shoulder I didn't know were tight but I felt sooo much better after the massage. She is the best!

Ahhhhhh! Tanhya found every sore /tight/tired/tweeked muscle in my body--and more. I left floating. It was a WOW! masssage. I'm still floating the next day. It's like this every time. She's great; the best I've found. 'Nuff said!
