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.

Whether you are stressed, injured, live with chronic pain or simply just need to relax this is the place to be.
Pam Highland Park Massage TherapistPam – After becoming discouraged by traditional Western medicine practices in my personal healing quest, I explored alternative methods.  These newfound approaches proved to me that optimal health was best achieved through balanced living and not through the unnatural course of symptom management. This knowledge precipitated a lifestyle change, including the pursuit of a career in massage therapy.  My journey has been long and indirect. I received a BA in music from the U of M, spent 5 years active duty Air Force, 15 years in the computer field, with certification from Center Point Massage and Shiatsu Therapy School in mid-2004. As a massage therapist, I facilitate the healing process by empowering clients to become well balanced. Rehabilitative and headache therapies I consider to be my specialties.

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.

Meet Kathryn Kuhlmann, Sister Rosalind Massage Therapist - BurnsvilleKathryn Kuhlmann  – What first got me interested in massage has a lot to do with family. My paternal grandparents visited biyearly from Colorado up until 2004 and my grandma always used to teach me the new things she learned from a cousin of mine who is a massage therapist. As time wore on people used to tell me I was really good at giving back rubs. It didn’t take long from there for me to decide to do this full time.  I was 10 years old when I decided to follow this path and I am now 22. I firmly believe massage is part of why God put me in my family. Once in school I learned about the many ways massage helps people mentally and physically. There is nothing more rewarding in this job to be able to feel an improvement in a person’s muscles and see the relief on their face by the end of the session.  After touring three different schools I ended up deciding to go to Sister Rosalind’s school in West St. Paul and I haven’t looked back. I graduated in December 2010 with the 800 hour massage certificate and Chair 2 certificate for an extra 35 hours of education.  Currently my biggest dream with massage is to take my skills with me where ever I land doing full time missions work. My current dream country is to be in Morocco where I went on a Global Team with River Valley Church in April of 2012.

My favorite part of my massage is putting my clients in a complete state of relaxation and eliminating any stress. In my spare time I enjoy reading and traveling.
