Kim Highland Park Massage TherapistKim – Kim began her journey with Sister Rosalind’s Schools and Clinics of Massage in 2005 with a background in nursing and early childhood education.  While working at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of MN, she observed biofeedback, aromatherapy, and therapeutic massage used to help, heal and comfort children undergoing chemotherapy.  This exposure inspired Kim on her path. In November of 2008 Kim began working as a professional massage therapist and the love affair continues today.  Kim’s favorite techniques include myofascial release, Swedish, pregnancy, sports and geriatric massage. “I greatly enjoy the variety of clients and the work is never boring.”
Collene Highland Park Massage TherapistColleen – As a graduate from St. Catherine’s University, I became a physical therapist assistant.  As a PTA, I decided to enhance my skills and also become a massage therapist. I furthered my skills as a massage therapist and became nationally certified in reflexology, which I had great success with. I mostly work with deep tissue massage, where I help relieve pain, soreness and stress that is so common in clients everyday work. The rewards and gratitude I receive from clients are almost instantaneously.  Seeing people smile after they receive a massage is worth the time and effort that it took to become a massage therapist. I will always be a massage therapist because as long as it makes people happy to enhance wellness, it makes me happy.
Christine Highland Park Massage TherapistChristine  –  I am a graduate of Sister Rosalind’s School and have been doing massage for 14 years.  Massage promotes healing & helps people reconnect to their bodies, whether they are rehabilitating an injury, counteracting the effects of stress, or striving to enhance their athletic performance.  I am trained in a wide range of techniques and customize each session to the client’s need.
Melissa Highand Park Massage TherapistMelissa  – I graduated from Sister Rosalind’s School of Massage in the spring of 2005.I have worked at the clinic here since 2007.I am Certified (930 hours of school), Licensed (Saint Paul), and Nationally Certified (NCTMB, Nationally Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork). I am currently working on certification to teach/instruct infant massage. I work allot with Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue, Swedish and Pregnancy. I integrate other modalities into most massages per clients’ needs, such as, MFR (myofascial release), TrP (trigger point therapy) and Sports. Massage is a wonderful thing that we all need. Whether you are stressed, injured, live with chronic pain or simply just need to relax this is the place to be.

SSara Highland ark Massage Therapistarah McMahill – My journey into bodywork started when I was teenager in chronic pain.  I started receiving chiropractic care, acupuncture, and Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) and after nearly a decade of intermittent sessions, I finally found relief.  Even though I had been receiving wonderful pain-management care it wasn’t until my fifth year of college when I had an experience that completely changed my career-path thinking. Feel free to ask me about that experience when you come in for your session. 

To make a long story short, I graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2003 with a bachelor’s in theater, art and English with an emphasis in creative writing.  I then moved to Minneapolis and attended Saint Paul College where I received my Massage Therapy Certificate in the spring of 2004. I took several workshops outside of college including Qi Gong, Chair Massage, and Thai Yoga Massage. When I attended Saint Paul College for massage, I knew that I wanted to specialize in MFR. The myofascial release seminars I took from John Barnes are MFR 1, MFR 2, Unwinding, Advanced Unwinding, Fascial-Pelvis, Cervical-Thoracic, Pediatrics, Equine, and Women’s Health.  Even though myofascial release is my specialty I incorporate other modalities (Swedish, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitated Stretching, Lymphatic Drainage, and Reflexology) to assist the healing process.  In 2002 I became active in the Minnesota Chapter of the International Enneagram Association.  In October 2014, I’ll be starting a certification course to become an enneagram coach.

Highland Park Massage Therapist - Not PicturedEmily Larson – CMT, LMT – I am a graduate of Aveda Institute Minneapolis, having graduated in September 2016. I happened to stumble across Massage Therapy, and have been in love with it ever since. I very much enjoy helping people love and understand their bodies, as well as being able to help them become more happy and healthy. As a firm believer in treating the body holistically, I believe that massage therapy is a wonderful option to have, and that it truly works wonders for the body. Some of my techniques include Trigger point, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy Massage, Foot Reflexology & Swedish Massage. I strongly believe that I am able to bring my intuition to the table to help my clients get the most out of their session.

My preferred style focuses on deep tissue, myofasical techniques, trigger point therapy, stretching, and incorporates elements of Lomi Lomi and Thai Yoga massages. I greatly enjoy helping others break out of their old movement patterns: encouraging their bodies to work better, and with less pain. I have worked in a chiropractor’s office, in a spa setting, and have owned my own massage business. I am grateful to have found my way to Sister Rosalind’s clinic to return my focus to healing the body.

Jenna Gadient sister rosalind massage therapistJenna Gadient – As someone who has always enjoyed taking care of people, I have been practicing massage therapy for 15 years. Graduating from Aveda Institute in 2004, I have worked in a variety of different settings including a 5-star day spa, salon & spas and most significantly, a physical medicine clinic. While working in a medical setting I gained crucial knowledge about chronic pain, pain relief, physical therapy and learned other modalities such as Myofascial Relief, TMJ treatment, hot and cold therapy, and laser therapy. Labeled a “healer” at a previous stint, where I also achieved the “top requested therapist” for 2 consecutive quarters, I thrive on helping people to feel better and de-stress. Though I enjoy relaxation and other massage modalities, I specialize in deep tissue/pain relief massage.
