Today I’d like to introduce you to Amy Kaiser – owner at Soul Healing Massage, at 1907 Schofield Avenue Suite B, Schofield, WI (inside the Daniel Seehafer Accounting building). While Soul Healing Massage has been around for two years within Fashion Villa in Rothschild, Amy just moved to her new location in June 2016.
Amy is a mom of three children, ages 10, 8, and 5, so she can certainly understand the concept of balance!! She has worked as both a CNA and LPN. Amy finds that this medical background helps her better tailor her massage services to her clients.
Amy was looking for a positive life change as she was feeling stressed in her LPN position in a long-term care unit and deep down didn’t feel like she could keep on. She also believed having her own business and setting her own hours would be a better fit for her family. Every day she passed Health Touch Spa as she took her children to school. Amy had never even had a massage, but she decided to give Health Touch Spa a call and ended up deciding to start the massage therapy course 11 days before classes began. Admittedly, it was an intense ten months to gain her massage certification while she continued working as an LPN. However, she knew that at the end, it would be worth the effort!!
Amy’s favorite aspect of being a massage therapist is when she can provide instant pain relief. Of course, for long-standing issues, this may be a gradual process. She has also met amazing people and enjoys doing additional research to learn more about the client’s specific issues when needed.
Owning her own business has caused Amy to become much more organized and increased her confidence in herself – she really enjoys teaching people more about their particular issue.
She’s also noticed a change in her family – they are healthier and more able to handle health issues.
Amy strongly believes in massage, … there are no negative side effects (except soreness if the desired effect is deep tissue release .. getting those knots out is a good thing, but not always comfortable!), as opposed to traditional medicine. She has massaged clients with frozen shoulders, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, autism, mental illness, and much more. She sees massage as preventative health care. One of her favorite stories is a gentleman who came in for a 30-minute massage, who had been suffering for over 20 years with an old work-related injury. He’d never had a massage before. After 15 minutes he said, “I can’t believe it – I can already tell a difference.” He came in for a few more longer sessions after that!
Amy’s specialties are aromatherapy (using essential oils), hot stone, deep tissue, Swedish, and therapeutic massage techniques. She will combine the deep tissue, Swedish, and therapeutic techniques as needed for each individual session.
Amy also offers a Personal Healing Plan package – a discounted plan for those who would like a regular monthly massage.
In full disclosure, I received a 60 minute massage from Amy in exchange for this post. She did a great job and I’m happy to recommend her!!
