Owner / Licensed Massage Therapist
Teri Studer is a licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in the State of Iowa (LIC. #04935) and is a member in good standing with both the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage (NCBTM). She graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy in February 2008. In addition to her 775-hour certificate from CCMT, Teri also has a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Mt. Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, IA. In 2015 she received her Advanced Theta Healing® Practitioner and Instructor certification.
Deciding a corporate life was not for her after 15 years, she fulfilled a long-standing dream to become a massage therapist. Teri knows body work restores impaired energy by nourishing the body and mind on a cellular, emotional and spiritual level. Having personally recovered from a couple of auto accidents and "sitting at a computer" with the help of massage and chiropractic care, she is acutely aware of what is required to heal from trauma and injury. When given the opportunity to free your self from discomfort, a whole new perspective comes to life - your vitality can be re-awakened. She uses her intuition and education to help all of her clients maintain an optimal level of wellness and looks forward to working with those committed to their own health and well being.
Teri's philosophy is to work with the whole person addressing all areas of one's life to help people find balance and reduce tension and stress. While constantly improving her techniques through continuing education, she is able to tailor her massage to fit each individual by drawing on many modalities, blending and incorporating the necessary techniques, such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue, orthopedic, and Swedish massage strokes that create a deep, relaxing and effective massage.
Through years of working with clients to manage, reduce or eliminate pain it became evident to Teri that a lot of the physical issues tied back to emotional trauma and limiting beliefs. After experiencing her own physical downfall (ruptured disc in neck and torn labrum and bone spurs in shoulder) which resulted in surgery - it led Teri on a healing journey for the mental/emotional component of the picture. She has had tremedous personal healing with the meditation technique: Theta Healing® with herself and many clients.
You can also find Teri bringing the gift of touch to many through on-site chair massages at different events she volunteers for in Cedar Rapids/Marion or through wellness programs at a few companies in the area. Some of her hobbies include reading, golfing, skiing, exercising, learning more about health and wellness, home improvement projects and spending time with her daughter. After one year of practicing Teri was voted #3 in the Corridor on the KCRG A-List.
