Meet Your Therapeutic Match!

Let our short quiz guide you!
Each therapist is excellent, but each has his or her own unique style.

Magdalena

Magdalena has a strong background in western science and a great grasp of kinesiology. She has lots of experience working with migraines and neck pain, and defaults to a medium pressure and enjoys using aromatherapy.
She excels at using extra light pressure for anyone with sensitive needs or medical conditions. Magdalena has many looks and styles as you’ll see from her various pictures!
Olga would be a great alternative.

Olga

Olga has a great mix of styles and defaults to a strong medium pressure. She is firm yet gentle and is not one to chit chat during her sessions. She is great with cupping therapy and clearing energy as part of her massage work.
Katie or Heidi would be great alternatives.

Katie

Katie’s style is primarily Swedish, and her default pressure is a strong medium – firm but not too deep . Katie is a favorite of many as she has a repertoire of wonderfully relaxing techniques. Katie can do cupping therapy if desired.
 Magdalena or Olga would be great alternates to choose from.

Heidi

Heidi defaults to a firm pressure, and she does deep tissue massage but prefers to utilize cupping therapy whenever it seems to be more useful than that – which is often! Heidi incorporates acupressure into each massage and works with the energy in your meridians throughout each session.
Olga, Katie, or Jeff would be great alternatives – they all do cupping too!

Jeff

Jeff has firm pressure and does deep tissue work. Jeff has also studied the John Barnes method of Myofascial Release and enjoys doing that kind of lighter work. His techniques are a mix of East and West, and he enjoys using cupping therapy.
Katie, Olga or Heidi would be great alternatives.

What kind of pressure do you prefer?

Light or very light – I am sensitive and sometimes get very sore after massage.

Light to medium – I want to just relax and not feel any of my trouble spots

Medium to Firm/Medium – not painful, but I want a good strong massage.

Very firm! I prefer working at my pain threshold through the tender areas because they need it!
