Hello! Allow me to introduce myself, My name is Mary Jo Brandl and I
am the owner of MJ's Balance Studio. Let me share with you the types of
services I offer and what my scope of practice is.
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.
In August 2014 I graduated from East-West Healing Arts Institute in
Madison WI. East-West is built on the premise that body, mind, and
spirit form an interconnected, inseparable system, and that true healing
can only take place when all three are addressed. Therapeutic massage
and bodywork has been used for thousands of years as a powerful tool for
healing, and can have a profound effect on the whole being of both the
client and the practitioner. The Asian Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage
Diploma Program is an 800 hour program that prepares students in the
analysis and synthesis of knowledge and skills of Western and Eastern
science and bodywork. The interdisciplinary program includes thorough
instruction in Eastern and Western modalities of therapeutic massage, as
well as a rigorous course of study in Western science Eastern Theory. I
have learning things such as Tui Na, Cupping, Acupressure and more!!
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.
