Restoring the Brain and Body Connection
Debby Jensen, Body Wisdom Therapeutic Massage
Debby is a certified massage therapist who graduated from Sister Rosalind's in 2005. She has extensive experience in many modalities and is committed to learning and growing in the ever-evolving field of massage. Besides multiple continuing education workshops related to sports injuries and rehab, Debby has taken extensive training in Kinesiology Taping and has great success with using the KT tape in accompaniment to her client's treatments. Debby is currently studying Z-health which is a brain-based therapy which helps decrease the stress in the brain by using simple movement drills which in turn creates better neurological patterns in the body.
Debby's philosophy and love for the practice of massage is a simple one. She loves massage because no work day is ever the same. Each client has a different past, different stress, different muscle memory that creates a unique challenge.
With a fascination with the incredible complexity of how our body relates to itself and the surrounding world, Debby loves looking deeper for the connection between muscle dysfunction and our emotional and mental well-being. We are always just scratching the surface due to the amazing complexity of our bodies which is why Debby strives and is committed to continuing her education.
The root of all health is in the brain.
The trunk of it is in emotion.
The branches and leaves are the body.
The flower of health blooms when all parts work together.

Melissa Bauer, MKB Massage
612-257-1094 or email@example.com
MKB Massage is staffed by Melissa Bauer as the owner and sole Massage Therapist. Melissa is an enthusiastic, caring Massage Therapist focused on accomplishing goals of health and wellness with her clients. For her, touch has power. In the form of massage, touch is used to relieve aches, pains, and other discomforts. Relief from issues has a ripple effect for a client; meaning that someone then has time to be out living instead of suffering and just getting through life.
Melissa earned an Associate Degree in Massage Therapy from Minnesota School of Business in 2011. As part of that program, she received training in Swedish, Hot Stone, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Thai, Sports, Lymphatic Drainage and CranioSacral modalities with some additional training in Energy Work, Pregnancy, and Special Populations massage.
A common session of 60 or 90 minutes with Melissa consists of an integrated approach using techniques from Myofascial, Deep Tissue and Swedish to relieve discomforts. She also firmly believes in educating her clients on what is happening with their bodies in order to create and maintain balance for future health and wellness goals while in & out of session.
Melissa is very grateful to be available at Body Wisdom for appointments. Contact her to schedule today!

Dipl.Ac.(Diplomate of Acupuncture)
Chinese Medicine can treat people of all ages, including small children. Family and Health are very important to me, and hope you also discover that acupuncture and other treatments can help you in many ways: become more centered, and reduce stress. Also, alleviate pain for migraines, arthritis, and sports injuries, and strengthen your immune system.
This amazing Medicine can often treat the root of the problem, going past the surface manifestation to a deeper level. Patients can see remarkable results when they consider lifestyle changes, such as dietary therapy, along with acupuncture and other treatment modalities. Tuning forks, auricular (ear) acupuncture, cupping, and tuina can augment traditional acupuncture.
I received my Master’s degree in Chinese Medicine from the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2006, and also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, and Communications, with a minor in Psychology, from Gustavus Adolphus College.
Along with practicing and leading Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes, I have studied the Art of Healing Qi Gong and Reiki for about 20 years. Acupuncture and working with Qi can create harmony physically, emotionally and spiritually. Qi (Chi) is considered the life force energy that creates life in the body: the Breath in the lungs, the circulation of blood from the heart. This primordial energy creates and sustains life.
I am a licensed acupuncturist through the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and am board certified in acupuncture by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). As a practitioner, I continue to research ways to facilitate the healing process.
My journey with you is to help bring balance to your physical and emotional well-being. I find bliss in nature, Tai Chi and in the clinic, as each of them enhances the Vital Life Force.
