Cara Michelle Cromie, Massage Therapist  in Davenport
“Ideal clients are seeking professional relaxation and deep tissue services. Releaxation massage is great for helping with depression, anxiety, blood pressure, insomnia and has many other benefits. Deep tissue massage is great for enhancing muscle function, aiding in the healing process after overuse and injury, decrease muscle reflex activity and inhibit motor-neuron excitability which alleviates pain. Massage is also awesome complementary care to chiropractic adjustments. It can help keep adjustments longer and prevents subluxation.

Rhonda Mickelson, Massage Therapist  in Clive
“I look forward to assisting you with your journey into better health. My own twenty-five year battle with chronic pain led me to alternative therapies, and now my main goal is to "pay it forward" and try to help others find ways to cope, relax and regain strength and healing. I specialize in Mana Lomi (Traditional Hawaiian healing/massage) finding it combines many other modalities such as Clinical Sports and Myofascial Release into one powerful practice. I am also a second degree practitioner of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki.
