Trained at Perheniemen Evankelinen Opisto & First Institute.INC
Currently studying at IQUIM University on track DNM to PhD (Doctorate in Natural Medicine to PhD).

I received my holistic health training mostly in Finland at Perheniemi Evangelic College where I studied Kajava Therapy (Deep Tissue Massage and Myofascial Release) and many holistic health modalities; diet therapies, vitamin/mineral and herbal therapies, spa therapies, Bach Flower Remedies and Aroma Therapy. I graduated as Holistic Nutritional Counselor and later on as Holistic Health Practitioner. In USA I studied Massage Therapy at Firstinstitute.INC, Crystal lake and graduated as a Licensed Massage Therapist. Currently I am continuing my studies of Natural Medicine at IQUIM University. My goal is to graduate next year as a Doctor of Natural Medicine (DNM).


Since 2002 I have been proving my services as Health Coach consulting clients, friends, and family about natural approach to their health.

I am passionate about natural health, holistic medicines and therapies. I believe a great physical, mental, and spiritual health can be better achieved and maintained with natural non invasive methods. There is a place for allopathic health care, naturally, but unfortunately the focus is on chemical intervention causing many serious unnecessary side effects and even deaths. The root cause of the problem is ignored, or it is not understood. Many health problems can be prevented with gentle natural holistic methods and changes of habits and diet.

Tarja is amazing for deep tissue massage! She is very knowledgeable about muscle groups and the body. She gives suggestions on what you can do on your own to help relieve pain.. :)

My experience was great. It was the best massage I've ever had. Would have appreciated a darker setting with calmer music and less conversation, but I will definitely be back.
