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 just fantastic. Her pressure is spot on (pun intended) and just what the body needs

I look forward to my massage every week!
by Rachel on Jul 26
Fantastic massage! It was exactly what I was looking for, calm atmosphere, extremely knowledgeable and professional person. Such attention to each individual muscle, and not a 'spa type' session. This is perfect for athletes, hard workers, and especially...tattoo artists! (which is my field) Definitely will be back!

Tarja is a very knowledgeable & skilled masseuse. A therapeutic massage on such a skilled level is very hard to find. This was my second visit and it was just as amazing. She doesn't take any short cuts. I look forward to many more massages to help with my arthritis, fibromyalgia & overall body stress, aches & pains. Thank you, Tarja for being so skilled. ~ M. E.

Taja was very knowledgeable. She helped me a lot with her massage techniques.

Tarja is very professional. There was very calming music playing in the background. The temperature was just right. I was her 5th client for the day and she still had enough strength to provide me with an amazing Swedish Massage. Two days later and I am still feeling some of my sore spots. Tarja also went above and beyond by sending me some videos that I could use to stretch my gluts on my own time. Can't wait for my next appointment.
