Experienced Level Massage Therapist
Hello, my name is Sylvia. My goal is to help you take time out of your busy life to focus on just yourself. My true desire is to help busy families learn how to find their center and calmer parenting approaches leading to a path of wellness and getting back to nature. I think this can be accomplished by teaching parents about the power and healing that massage can provide, which they can then incorporate into their own lives and pass on to their children. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2017. I specialize in myofascial, Swedish and Deep Tissue massage, but I am continuously expanding my knowledge in the massage field and holistic lifestyle. Currently I’ve added waxing services to my list of options as well.
Some of the inspirational activities I enjoy are barefoot nature walks, cooking wholesome meals with my kids, gardening, and watching my family grow together. This year, we are learning about growing herbs, keeping bees, landscaping, the benefits of different garden produce, bach flowers, and canning our own food. If you have any tips or tricks, I would love to hear them or I am willing to share my experience with you as well.

In my healing practice, I primarily use TuiNa; which is a Chinese form of therapeutic massage that balances and harmonizes Qi flow allowing the physical body to relax and recover from injury. By using rhythmic strokes along the bodies meridians (energetic pathways) TuiNa can effectively address many health conditions through its power of controlling pain and reducing stress. TuiNa has also been shown to increase mobility, improve paralytic conditions, relative tight muscles and aid in the recovery from trauma. Tuina is great for sport injury, musculoskeletal injury, depression, headaches, insomnia, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel and general pain relief, It is my belief, when TuiNa is combined with other healing modalities such as Hot Stone Massage, Chiropractic care, and Acupuncture it can help you overcome ongoing muscular pain in order to live a happier, healthier life. It is my mission to make each session meaningful for you, guiding your body and mind toward peace, balance, and relaxation.
The massage received by Josiah is very helpful for maintaining my health. I also have neuropathy in my feet and the work he does on my calves and feet have improved my sensation and reduced my pain. Thank you, Josiah, for your intuitive and exceptional work!
Jodi is wonderful!! She not only has a great personality but she makes you feel very comfortable right from the start of your massage asking you questions to be sure that you get the most out of your massage with her. She wants to be able to address any trouble spots to be sure you are feeling better when you leave. She not only does your massage extremely well but teaches you about health and wellness in the process. She is a bundle of information and is the greatest!! I will definitely be going coming back and have spread the word!!! Thanks Jodi!!!!
This was my first ever facial, and the whole experience was positive, relaxing, and informative. I felt listened to, safe, and in the end – transformed! Thank You Victoria, for your professionalism and warm welcoming presence.
I have an injury so really appreciated Carrie coming out & assisting me getting in & out of my vehicle.
I have a locked shoulder and Brian has been doing a wonderful job getting it to move more. Better than the chiropractor.
Caroline is wonderful. I highly recommend here!
Brian is excellent! Very knowledgeable and precise in his craft. Gave suggestions about stretches I should do at home as well. I highly recommend his services and will return to him again.
It was a wonderful peaceful experience. The therapist was wonderful she is awesome. I made another appointment. I have been other places but I have never had a massage that was this good.
Caroline has a unique quality that puts you right at ease. Her massage is truly the most relaxing! By far the best part of my week! Thank you!

Monica went to school to study hair in Green Bay, WI. She has worked in large salons in Green Bay and in Madison, WI. 8 years into a career that constantly put large amounts of toxins into her body, she decided to leave the industry because it was profoundly affecting her health. She needed to let her body heal.
She moved to The Himalayan Institute in search of a healthier lifestyle and a new passion. There she discovered the joys of Yoga and how to teach it! When Josiah and Monica spoke about Back To Bliss she never thought that going back to the hair industry was an option. After doing hours of research and study she found that several product lines were working hard to make the hair industry more organic and toxin free. These new products would allow her to enjoy her passion once again.
Monica is so passionate about changing her industry for the better and educating people about the harmful effects these chemicals can have. She is kind, loving and gives 100% to every person that sits in her chair. Monica is a mother of three beautiful daughters that she is blessed to split her time between her girls and her business.
