Eagles Nest Massage Therapy has both female and male therapists. All therapists have their own personal areas of training and expertise. We encourage you to try a number of therapists to find the one that you feel most relaxed with and provides you the style you enjoy. Some clients choose to make their appointments with the same therapist for all of their visits, while others choose to make appointments with a variety of therapists. We encourage you to do that which fits you personally. Please refer to the therapists menu below for more information on what styles each individual therapist offers.

Training: 1000 hours at Boulder College of Massage Therapy
What I enjoy most about bodywork: The feeling of satisfaction that comes from giving another life more comfort, less pain, and hopefully a stronger connection with humanity through the stillness of their own inner being. I also enjoy the challenge of piecing together the story of each client as told by their body and the muscle memories. We are such fascinating creatures!
Biography: I grew up in and around the Twin Cities and graduated high school in Hudson, WI. I picked up everything and moved to Boulder, CO where I eventually met my life partner, gave birth to our beautiful son, and graduated from Boulder College of Massage Therapy. After a stint in Northern California we returned to Colorado where I developed a love of mountain biking. In early 2016 my family embarked on a national search for the best places to live, bike, work, learn and love. Duluth won! I am happy to be back in the Midwest although the humidity may take awhile to get used to. I am truly grateful to bring my work to Eagles Nest Massage and look forward to many adventures here in Duluth and the North Shore.

Biography: I was raised in Duluth. In 2012 I decided to venture out on my own. I went to Saint Paul to study psychology. On my way to school in 2013 I was in an auto accident, as a part of my treatment I received massage professionally for the first time and immediately fell in love with it. I decided to change my career path because I believe wholeheartedly in the healing power of touch and massage therapy.

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I’m especially thrilled when I can be the facilitator for a person to experience something which they didn’t know they could feel- for instance, relief from chronic pain, a sense of serenity, or an awareness of their body or emotions that they didn’t have before. A witnessing touch can facilitate the flow of things that have been stuck, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Biography: I was born in Hastings, MN, where my father built his little home on the Mississippi River and worked as a landscape painter. Growing up with a dad who made a living doing what he loved has been the foundation for me to trust the support of the universe in doing what gives me delight. Since getting my bachelors degree in biology and philosophy in 1986, my life’s journey has included being a field botanist and fisheries biologist in Alaska, building my log cabin and being an organic farmer in Carlton, MN, and being a professional gardener and permaculture designer in other parts of Minnesota. In recent years I’ve shifted my focus from hoping to change the world around me to an awareness of my own internal landscape, and, thanks in part to receiving lots of different kinds of bodywork, am now passionate about the power of taking responsibility for what goes on inside of me. When my son turned 18 and moved out, I took the opportunity to go to massage school and subsequently moved back into my beloved log cabin in the woods near Carlton.
My massage style: I’ve been told my massage is “Therapeutic without being painful.” I listen to each person’s specific needs and bring in scientific understanding, intuition, and love to meet those needs.

Biography: Born in Cloquet, Mn and moved to Duluth shortly there after. Duluth has been my home except for occasional excursions, but the lake and family call me back! The desire to go back to school for massage therapy was stemmed by a hug from my grandmother. Human contact is so important to everyone at every age!

Biography: My life's journey led me from my native country of Hungary to several countries while working for non-profits and also to meeting my husband, a native Minnesotan. A few years ago we moved to Duluth and I then enrolled in the massage therapy program at Lake Superior College. It's been my long-held conviction that balance between mind-body-spirit is integral to optimum wellness. I feel that it is through massage therapy that I can best contribute to the well-being of others. Aside from massage therapy I enjoy cooking, reading, and exploring the beautiful nature around Duluth with my wonderful husband and our fun Boxer dog.
My massage style: I like to tailor each massage to the individual's needs and goals in the particular session whether it's just relaxation or relief from tension and pain.

What I enjoy most about my job: Seeing all the positive energy from the clients and staff as we move through every day, and knowing that I help make an impact. Supporting the fluid dynamics of this beautiful sanctuary is like living in my own little paradise.
Biography: I grew up in Minneapolis, went to college at UMD and lived in Portland, OR for three years. I then decided to go to massage school. I really wanted to find one that not only specialized in structural recovery, but also understood the power of therapeutic intent, & relaxation. I decided on Centerpoint Bodywork and Shiatsu School in Minneapolis, learning Trigger Point Therapy and the traditional pressure point system of "Shiatsu Anma". This was one of the most valuable & trans-formative experiences of my life thus far. Since graduating I have worked in a variety of settings including athletic facilities, spas, my own private practice, and as the wellness program manager of a non-profit center for movement arts. I enjoy swimming, reading, and camping, as well as hanging out with my wonderful family.
