First off let me explain to you that MJ's Balance Studio came
together as a part of me getting sick and regaining my health. In April
of 2009 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I saw a lot of doctors,
talked to a lot of people, and read a lot of information on
Fibroymalgia. I explored massage therapy, hot yoga, diet and other
exercise. I decided to become a fitness instructor to help me regain my
health and I did just that!!! I am currently healthy and take no
medications. In September of 2011 I became a Zumba® Fitness Instructor.
I am currently licensed to teach Zumba®, Zumba® Gold, Zumba® Toning,
Aqua Zumba®, Zumba® Sentao, Zumba® Kids & Zumba® Kids Jr. I am a
NESTA Certified Personal Trainer and Sport Yoga Instructor. I am
certified by the American Red Cross in CPR/AED and First-Aid for
infants, children and adults. I teach Zumba® classes and Sport Yoga at
my studio located at 834 Huntington Avenue in Wisconsin Rapids (8th
Street Plaza Mall).
In October 2013 I completed my Reiki I certification and in December
2013 I completed my Reiki II certification. I received my Reiki
attunements from Reiki Master Teacher Arline Rowden in Madison WI.
MJ's Balance Studio is locally owned and operated. I am one person trying to help others feel better about themselves. My fitness classes are small and personal. I personally do all appointments offered at MJ's Balance Studio. I want to see you, hear you, and help you. Feel free to check out my website for more information www.mjsbalancestudio.com.

Craniosacral therapy (CST), or cranial-sacral therapy, is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy focused primarily on the concept of "primary respiration" and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. To do this, a practitioner will apply light touches to a patient's skull, face, spine and pelvis.
Myofascial Release I,
Myofascial Release II.
Myofascial release (or MFR) is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. Soft tissue can become restricted due to psychogenic disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow. Although fascia and its corresponding muscle are the main targets of myofascial release, other tissue may be addressed as well, including other connective tissue
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps). Through either heat or suction, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place for five to fifteen minutes. It is used to help treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling.
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principles of acupuncture, and involves the use of finger pressure (without the needles) on specific points along the body.
Acupressure is a way of accessing and releasing blocked or congested energy centers in the body. Chinese cultures believe the points to be junctures of meridian pathways that carry energy called chi.
