Chantelle Lorenz - Massage Therapist, Chiropractic Assistant
Chantelle started her formal training of massage therapy in 1997 at Minneapolis School of Massage & Bodywork and has continued her education at McKinnon Institute in Oakland, CA. Being the youngest in a family of 10 children, Chantelle inherently learned the value of touch.
She has come to understand how touch gets peoples attention, cultivates a present moment awareness, and helps one be in their body. Growing up an athlete, dancer, and tumbler, and coming from a family of such, Chantelle has developed a sense of kinestetic wisdom through movement. She loves working with the body - our vehicle for expression. Valuing a holistic approach and working with the therapeutic effects of massage therapy has been a natural and validating path for her. Chantelle customizes the sessions to meet her client’s needs – whether you want to experience deep relaxation or want site-specific release in knotted and pained areas.
