Scott Winsness

 Massage Therapist


With more than 20 years of experience, Scott brings a heavy concentration on the treatment of acute and chronic injuries and sports- and performance- specific injuries to Green Lotus clients. Since 1995 Scott has combined what he learned in his Masters program in acupuncture at Northwestern Health Sciences University with training in various bodywork modalities to facilitate improved function for athletes and performers. He has worked with members of major sports teams including the Minnesota Wild athletes, the University of Minnesota Men's Gymnastics team, and the Men’s Swim team. Scott has worked with the theatre community as well. He has worked with performers from over 90 Broadway touring companies and several of the Cirque DuSoleil shows while they were in the twin cities area. He has also supported several local chiropractors and the Institute of Athletic Medicine. Much of his previous experience with athletes and performers was aimed at rapid relief of pain to get them back on stage or into competition.

Scott believes that bringing our body, mind and spirit into balance is key to optimal wellbeing and improved quality of life, and to further that goal massage is one of the most effective tools we can employ. To help you create your perfect balance Scott offers a range of massage modalities during any of his appointments including deep tissue, myofacial release, sports massage, trigger point therapy, acupressure, passive stretching, muscle stripping, reflexology, bio-sync and Swedish massage. Scott also teaches couples, partners, and friends Swedish massage techniques in our serene healing center in private instruction sessions.

I was in such a blissed out state (after my massage with Scott Winsness) that I put my shoes on before my pants.
