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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Coaching, or Spa services

by Walter on Dec 03
Very satisfied with how I felt after initial consult/massage. Tarja also took the time to discuss issues. Would highly recommend

I’m a newbie to massage therapy and have to say to Tarja is amazing! I drive 45 minutes but it is worth every minute. She’s a miracle worker with magic hands and shares her knowledge about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This newbie is hooked!

I have had other massage in the past but this was by far hands down the BEST, she took her time and listened to your concerns, she was extremely professional but still was friendly and comfortable to be around . my body felt relaxed and less pain, Im defiantly returning.
