Our Therapists & Staff


 

Choosing A Therapist


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.

Quote: Be still, and the earth will speak to you. -Navajo Proverb
 

Therapy provided: General relaxation, needs specific, deep tissue and pregnancy.

 

Training: 650 hours at Lake Superior College, Reiki level 2 practitioner

 

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love to give clients a space to heal and relax with nurturing touch. I feel massage and healing are my gifts and purpose in this life so every day and every client fills my heart and energizes my soul.

 

Biography: I was raised in Duluth, and shortly after graduating high school I moved to the Twin Cities where I worked as a caregiver/CNA for many years. During this experience I learned the value of service and giving loving kindness. After this my life took me on a spiritual journey. I spent some years traveling and eventually made my way back to Duluth. Aside from massage, I practice yoga, meditation, ki gong, and martial arts. I also enjoy gardening, studying spirituality, wellness, herbs and nutrition. I love being out in nature weather it be hiking, canoeing, barefoot yoga, or camping.

 

My massage style: My focus is to give each client the care and attention they need. My style is fluid and connective. I really enjoy the energy aspect of massage. My intention is to provide emotional and spiritual healing as much as the physical.

MASSAGE THERAPIST

Quote: "Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished."
-Lao Tzu

 

Therapy Provided: Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Pregnancy

 

Training: Over 600 hours at Lake Superior College, Yoga Teacher Training: 200 hours at Yoga Garden of Northeast Minneapolis

 

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love helping clients reconnect with their bodies so they can reconnect with themselves. By gaining greater body awareness we know more of what we need in our mental and spiritual lives, so we can move forward and grow into our optimal selves.

 

Biography: I grew up on a hobby farm in a very small town just South of Duluth. Growing up I spent a great deal of time outside, learning about the natural world that surrounds us. I gravitated toward the sense of touch; I loved to massage my mom for hours on end, feel the different textures of growing plants and the ever varying sensations of Minnesota’s cold winters and hot summers. With the love and patience shown to me by my family, I was given the freedom and time to find my own path in life. I explored new places and gained new insights to take with me in my journey. In the spring of 2016 I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Minneapolis which became the catalyst for me to start the career I believe I was born to do, massage therapy. I moved back to the North-land and promptly started school at Lake Superior College. I will continue to learn, experiment and be humbled by the fascinating field of bodywork. I am honored to be apart of the Eagles Nest community and look forward to continual growth.

 

My massage style: I meet my clients where they are at today, it all depends on what my client’s needs are and what my intuition is telling me. It will be therapeutic and can be slow and soothing or more invigorating. Either way it will be focused on my client.

 

Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 3pm-9pm & every other Saturday 3pm-9pm and Sunday 12pm-6pm

MASSAGE THERAPIST

Quote: "Be optimistic, it feels better."     -The 14th Dalai Lama

Therapy Provided: Swedish, Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Needs Specific, Pregnancy, and Lymphatic Drainage

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love giving people the space and opportunity to relax and take care of themselves. I feel a deep connection with all my clients but really tune into those who have chronic headaches, migraines, and neck issues as I have struggled with that myself. I love being apart of one's self care.
 
Biography:  I grew up in Cloquet,  and was given the amazing opportunity of traveling to Europe for the first time at six years old with my best friend, my grandpa. My grandma is 100% Italian and I still vacation and visit family there almost every summer. I was a competitive dancer and cheerleader throughout high school. I received my AA degree at LSC where I later returned for massage therapy. I came into massage therapy by quite literally stepping back from everything I was doing and finally realizing what my passions were. Since day one of the massage therap program, I knew that this was right for me. Along with massage and believing in the power of touch and energy healing, I very much value other ancient aspects of natural wellness such as yoga and nutrition. In the future I would like to become fluent in Ayurveda health education and specialize specifically in pregnancy and infant massage as well as yoga. I love to read, cook, garden, explore the Duluth yoga scene and local nature. I am involved with some local environmental groups in the area and do my best to live a lifestyle of sustainability. Helping others has always been very natural for me and it led me to working in assisted living and group homes for the majority of my adulthood.
 
My massage style: I would describe my work as rhythmic and focused. It's very important for me to get in tune with the energy on my table, that's when and how the magic happens.

Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8am-2:30pm, every other Saturday 3-9pm, every other Sunday 12-6pm

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.

Training: Over 600 hours at Lake Superior College
 
What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love to learn, and I love to help others. Working as a massage therapist allows me to do just that. I look forward to helping my clients with whatever ailments they may have, that are preventing them from enjoying the vast opportunities life has to offer.

Biography: Born and raised in Duluth, I attended Lake Superior College where I received my Associates of the Arts degree. While at LSC I took advantage of their study abroad program, with my now husband I traveled to Florence Italy in 2010. This trip opened my mind to new possibilities and taught me that life goes far beyond what happens at home. Once back in the states I finished my collage career with receiving my certification in Massage Therapy. I've since worked at a multitude of places and even opened my own massage studio for a short time. I'm excited to now be a part of the Eagle Nest team, where I can continue to help others and grow as a massage therapist.

Quote: "The most important person is the one you are with in this moment."       -Leo Tolstoy
 

Therapy provided: Deep Tissue/Needs Specific, Pregnancy, Relaxation.

 

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.

 

My massage style: Mindful and strong yet gentle touch with an intuitive energetic awareness.

What I enjoy most about body work: I enjoy watching the healing process unfold as tension that we may not even realize is there melts off layer by layer. It’s a beautiful thing to be trusted and allowed to be a part of someone else’s journey through healing whether it’s injury related or stress relief.

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.


My massage style: I think that all massage should be tailored to the specific needs of the individual, with that said I range anywhere from intuitive relaxation to dynamic sports massage.

Training: Graduate of 900-hour therapeutic massage program at CenterPoint Massage and Shiatsu School and Clinic, St Louis Park, Minnesota, April 2014. Master level Reiki training, 2013.


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.

Training: 1,275 hour training program at Centerpoint Massage and Shiatsu Therapy School and Clinic. 
 
What I enjoy most about bodywork: Helping people let go of pain & stress.

Biography: I have been in various martial arts & dance since I was 5, & ended up over-using my hip by the time I was out of high school. Imagine my surprise when a few years later a fellow martial artist, who was also a massage therapist, was able to cut my pain in half with one session! It was then that I began to see the restorative power of bodywork. When I finally 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. My time at Centerpoint, learning Trigger Point Therapy, and the traditional pressure point system "Shiatsu Anma" was one of the most valuable & transformative experiences of my life thus far. Since graduating I have worked in a variety of settings including athletic facilities, spas, in my own private practice, & as the Wellness Program manager of a non-profit center for movement arts. I'm very happy to be a member of the Eagle's nest team!

My massage style: The primary focus of my massage practice has generally been in recovery, with an emphasis in chronic pain, and athletic over-use, so my massage style can be more on the clinical side.

What I enjoy most about bodywork: The love that I have for bodywork all started when I was a young child with my grandmother.

I truly enjoy spreading my natural gift to heal others; not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually. Helping my clients achieve the healing and attention they need to live a healthy and happy life, gives me the opportunity to love and grow as a person and better my massage practice.

In 2007 I moved to Duluth to attend Duluth Business University for their massage therapy holistic program. While working full time at Interim Health Care and going to school, it was confirmed that this is what I absolutely love best! Soon after getting my massage degree I moved out west to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to work at a high end resort and spa. After some months, I had to say goodbye and come back home to Duluth. I then worked at Elysium Salon and Spa for the last four plus years. As I wanted a change in my work environment, I was honored that Eagles Nest wanted me to join their team. When I am not working, I love the outdoors; whether it be fall, winter, spring or summer, I will be out there enjoying each aspects of weather we are granted!

What I enjoy most about bodywork: Helping people see that they do not have to live this life in constant physical pain or discomfort. To be able to share with my clients that relief is always available, and with so many other benefits!

Biography: I grew up in Elk River, MN, and lived there for almost my entire life, living in Minneapolis for a few years, then returning home. I had never really known what I wanted to do, but two things kept coming to mind; music and massage therapy. During my time in Minneapolis, I met a wonderful musician and friend, who performed mainly at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with a band mate. I have been pursuing my love for music with them, and have been performing musically now for 5 years. In 2010, I decided to make a change in my life. I found Anthem College, enrolled in their massage therapy program, and was amazed at how much we learned! The human body is a wondrous thing! I graduated in February of 2012, while working at a massage establishment near Elk River. During my schooling, I was engaged to my now husband, who has lived in Duluth almost his entire life. Just before the wedding, I moved to Duluth, and had the privilege of becoming a part of the Eagles Nest team. My hobbies are making music, laughing with friends and family, and getting lost in the wonders of the planet and universe.

My massage style: I am known for putting clients to sleep. Even my deep work is very relaxing. I use a lot of slow, relaxing strokes, using different amounts of pressure, depending on the client’s needs. Then, I change it up with some stimulating strokes to focus on a particular area of tension.
