Hello! My name is Mindi Brown. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with a deep belief that Massage Therapy should be a regular part of everyone's wellness routine. I often hear from clients that they feel guilty for "pampering" themselves or even worse they wait till they are experiencing pain to come for a treatment. While both pain and pampering are great reasons to come for massage, the benefits of massage on a regular basis are enormous. Just like brushing your teeth or eating right, massage can help you maintain good health. I try to promote overall wellness to all my clients.
Before my journey in wellness I worked in conservation education and still feel strongly about the need to maintain a healthy planet in order to sustain healthy people. Through out my life until now I suffered with a series of illnesses. I began searching for alternatives to what felt like a hamster wheel of medicines and doctors. I am happy to say I no longer need treatment or medications and only see my doctor in emergencies or for a check up.
I have had training in many modalities of massage. I particularly love Aromatherapy and the many benefits of Essential Oils. I am a member of the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy. I also have had training in Reiki and I'm currently at the Reiki II Practitioner Level. I am training in Yoga and hope to some day teach. I have had some classes in Ayurveda and plan to continue training in these modalities. I continue to take courses and train in herbalism as well and love teas of every type.
I am so excited to share Avalla Massage and Wellness with everyone. I have incorporated all the things I cherish into my studio. I have a variety of items to browse through and purchase before or after your treatment. From Local Honey, teas, Essential Oils and diffuser to Yoga Supplies and Biofreeze there is quite a unique selection. We have gift certificates and premade gift baskets for that special someone who has everything. Be sure to check out our stocking stuffers. Visit our studio for your all of your shopping needs.
