Falina possesses a fine balance of skill and intuition in her work, listening closely to her clients and to their bodies. She received her training from Minneapolis School of Massage and Bodywork studying deep tissue, sports, relaxation and pre/post-natal massage, as well as connective tissue, pressure points, and trigger points bodywork. She has been a massage therapist since 2003, a vocation she loves, working with chiropractors, acupuncturists and herbalists.
With many tools in her tool kit, she is able to give the body what it needs. "I love when I am able find the issue in the muscles and work with it to melt, moving the client to feelings of peace and balance." Falina began practicing yoga in 2003 and often recommends yoga to her clients seeing the amazing benefits of mixing massage and yoga.
Her keen awareness of what pain can do to a person comes from a deep well of personal experience. The loss of her mother when she was young left her as a caregiver for her father and, as a result, she had to grow up fast. These experiences and her understanding of pain ignited a passion to help relieve pain in others, turning her life experiences into something positive and helpful to others.
Falina loves to hike, garden, bike, make pottery and art, watch movies, backpack on the Superior Hiking trail and in Montana, camp and travel.
