Welcome to Bodyworks
Chinese Medicine in the Wisconsin North Woods!
In Asia, the art and science of skincare has been studied for hundreds of years. There are many techniques of healing and restoration that are barely known outside of Asia. I have spent years in training to master these techniques. I have studied Chinese Medicine Dermatology with Mazin Al-Khafaji and continue to study with Dr. Shogo Mochizuki, the 26th Generation Master of Kobido, Tokyo, Japan. Lillian Bridges has been inspirational with her Face Reading and Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. Michelle Gellis instruction in facial acupuncture and facial rejuvenation has been indispensible in treating neuromuscular facial conditions.
As an Oncology Esthetics® (OE) certified practitioner, I specialize in the gentle healing of stressed and damaged skin. All skin treatments are customized for each client.
BodyWorks offers professional, holistic skincare treating health-challenged skin conditions with gentle, natural yet potent serums.
The BodyWorks studio is furnished with care. A BioMat covers the facial table and it infuses the patient with a continuous flow of healing far-infrared rays and negative ion therapy, via amethyst crystals, throughout facial treatments.
The latest treatments for gentle skin repair that works!
repairs skin from the dermal layer. It is a non-invasive bio-electromagnetic treatment device that mimics the electric frequencies in the body and skin cells, correcting skin cell activity which has slowed with age or damage, healing and rejuvenating facial muscles---lifting, toning, and encouraging cellular repair from the dermis. The patented MMW stimulation provides simultaneous muscle toning and re-education, thus providing both short- and long-term benefits without inflammation. The TAMA BlueOnyx GenII Quad Pro repairs and balances the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, heals cystic acne and improves skin discolorations without downtime.
TAMA FacialΦTherapy $125.00 single session
Every client is different and even the same client’s needs change over time. The patented circuitry at the heart of this device measures each person’s unique tissue composition and adapts to optimize the treatment. TAMA FacialΦTherapy works at specific depths of the skin, and the adjustments begin as soon as the probes touch the skin. The end result is an optimum electrical stimulus that penetrates and treats the various layers of skin and muscle tissue in a way that is unique to every client. There are no surgical procedures, no recovery time, no pain, no redness, no downtime. You can return to your normal schedule immediately, but with a refreshed look.
How TAMA FacialΦTherapy is Used in the studio
TAMA FacialΦTherapy can be incorporated with any service and is used to repair tissue damage, sculpt, and lift muscles throughout the body. A complete treatment takes no more than 60 minutes.
Packages are available in sets of 3, 6, or 12. Recommended treatment time varies between age groups as cellular turnover diminishes as we age. I recommend the following schedule to keep tissue at its optimum:
|Ages 20 - 35||Once a month. This may be added to your monthly treatment|
|Ages 35 - 55||Once a week for two months followed by once every 21 days for maintenance|
|Ages 55+||Once a week for three months followed by once every 10 days for maintenance|

Celluma LED Skin Repair
Studies have shown the Celluma LED Phototherapy treatment to smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore the skin's natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial hyperpigmentation in addition to healing cystic acne. First developed by NASA for use by astronauts, and then approved by the FDA to stimulate and repair skin, LED phototherapy has grown to be a standard tool for dermatologists and estheticians alike. The Celluma device folds neatly and unobtrusively over the face.
Celluma LED Phototherapy $50.00 for a 30-minute session

Asian Bodywork for the Wisconsin North Woods!
I am trained in Oncology Massage, a Preferred Practitioner with the Society for Oncology Massage, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and Wisconsin state-licensed. I am a member of the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia having studied with Grandmaster Dr. DoAnn T. Kaneko, L.Ac., Ph.D. O.M.D. creator of Kaneko Shiatsu Anma, Aj. Pichest Boonthumme and Homprang Chaleekanha, Traditional Doctor, Herbal Pharmacologist, Thai Ministry of Public Health. All licensed massage therapists are initially trained in Swedish, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue so those modalities may be accessed as well. The studio offers clients the ability to relax in superior comfort on tatami mats while experiencing therapeutic treatments rooted in Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Thai healing arts.
Japanese bodywork treatments are based in Chinese Medicine that focus on the flow of vital energy called 'Qi' that courses through the body in a 24-hour period. I will use a six-pulse assessment and an examination of your tongue to customize bodywork for your specific needs based on 5 Element patterns that change day-to-day season-to-season so rarely will sessions be the same.
Shiatsu Anma Short-Form • 30 Minute Session $50.00
Shiatsu Anma Long-Form • 60 Minute Session $80.00
Northern Style Thai Bodywork (nuat phaen boran thai, or traditional Thai massage) is an ancient energy-based healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the patient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply. This traditional healing practice stands in sharp contrast to western massage therapies, in which the patient is normally resistant to the massage.
Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between me and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. I will use thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being. For more information on nuat, go to Thai Healing Alliance International
