Bonnie L.
Massage Therapist

  • Graduate of Michigan School of Mymassology
  • Licensed by the State of Michigan

 

Why I became a Massage Therapist: 

When I had my very first massage in the early 1990's, not only did I experience a blissful, tranquil, and relaxing massage, I also found it to be my life's calling. After many years of going through life's journey, I finally decided to make massage therapy my career.

Specialties

I specialize in Swedish, Trigger points, Stretching, Hot Stones, Lomi Lomi Style, Prenatal and Reflexology.

Client Testimonial

"I have been to other places as well as chiropractors and physical therapists. I have had major lower back pain for several years. I was lucky enough to be paired with Bonnie. Within minutes, she was my hero! She was attentive to my needs and truly amazing in her techniques. For the first time in years, I can honestly say that I have been completely pain-free for more than 24 hours. It feels so good! She also helped me to learn stretches I could do at home to help. She was beyond compare." Kristi

Why I became a Therapist I enjoy balancing the differences between therapeutic massage, with relaxing massage. Both types of massage are incredibly valuable. My philosophy is to incorporate the two types of massage therapy to optimize the overall effects of the massage. It is this philosophy of combinations of the two fundamentals of therapy and relaxation that enables me to connect body, mind and spirit.
