Injury Recovery and Deep Relaxation since 2002


 Online scheduling 


Current Clients: If you cannot find an appointment, please text me at 612-245-2806.  I often have last minute cancellations and can fit you in.

I am still booking out several weeks and cannot take new clients.  I need to make sure that I offer quality service to my existing clientele before adding new people.  I will let you know as soon as I have openings again.

These colleagues are taking new clients:

Reka Hagermeister  Reka has been practicing for over a decade and I exchange bodywork with her regularly.  She provides Massage and Shiatsu.  She can do full body or specific work.  She is taking new clients.

Jean Loyd  Jean was one of my students and has a great spirit and works out of her own studio in North Minneapolis. She is building her business and taking new clients.

The Wellness Center has multiple therapists and I recommend Michael Casper.  He taught with me and provides the same services including Massage, Deep Tissue, and Shiatsu.


April Fleck, BA, CMT, MSW candidate, is a versatile and experienced body worker.  She enjoys engaging the client's parasympathetic nervous system and sending them on an epic relaxation journey.  At the same time, she likes to "nerd out" over body mechanics and solve complicated pain patterns.

Here are the COVID-19 precautions:

  • Face masks on-site for you or me. 
  • Longer spacing between appointments.
  • She will quarantine for two weeks if anyone in her family shows symptoms or tests positive. Also she gets tested about twice a month.
  • COVID questionnaire before treatment


Please Note: Clients will need to wear masks.  You can bring your own or use one of my disposable masks.

"When you get regular sessions with me you will have an ally to help you with stress, tension, aches and pains.  No matter what comes your way in your daily life you know that you will have a time and space reserved just for you to make you feel your very best." -April
