I have been a Kripalu Bodyworker/Massage therapist for over 15 years. Recently, I've started a ten week class that teaches daily self-care rituals for sustainable health and graceful aging. If you have low energy, pain, stress, inflammation, depression, insomnia, auto-immune issues, etc., it may be time to take responsibility for your health! Massage is great! It's only one piece to the overall Wellness puzzle though. If you are ready to dig deep and take your health to the next level, ask about Ten Weeks to Awake Wellness!

Who can practice massage in Idaho?
Most states have licensing requirements that must be met before a practitioner (a 'masseuse' or 'masseur') can use the title 'Massage Therapist', and some states require a license to practice any form of massage. Licensed Massage Therapists in Idaho have obtained the highest level of authentication. They must complete academic coursework in anatomy and physiology, as well as on the application of massage and bodywork, business and ethics, and specialized massage techniques. The Idaho LMT must then pass a certification exam.
