KATRINA - LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Katrina has been a registered nurse for 6 years and is graduate of Cuyahoga Community College for Massage Therapy. Her journey to switch to massage therapy began after she noticed that touch was a big missing factor in our current hospital health care setting and how big of a different therapeutic touch can make. After her experience receiving an amazing, relaxing massage, she realized this was what was missing from her life and her desire to feel fulfilled in helping others. In her free time Katrina loves spending time with her family, managing her farm, and continuing to learn about improving the health of herself and others.

DAN - LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Dan is a licensed massage therapist who believes in a multifaceted approach to addressing the impact of stress on our lives. Massage relieves the symptoms of stress by relaxing the muscle, in turn easing the nervous system and our minds. Biofield Tuning (sound therapy using tuning forks on and around the body) aligns our subtle electromagnetic energy system. Yoga, meditation in movement, teaches us to stay grounded in the present moment by connecting our attention to our breath and body (see Dan’s yoga bio). As well as being a Reiki 2 practitioner, Dan loves providing Reflexology to those interested in a mix of an amazing foot massage and energetic balancing. He understands the impact stress has on our health and happiness and strives to provide a relaxing yet deeply productive session. In his spare time Dan loves to explore the outdoors, write music, sing, dance and act. He loves animals and has a particular affinity towards his two cats.

Megan's comprehensive approach to nurturing her client's overall health is bolstered by supplemental certifications in reiki, nutrition, herbalism, and sound healing therapies. When you don't see Megan in the service room you can catch her preforming sound baths in the yoga room or spending time in nature with friends and family.
