A message from Donita Grebner, LMT:
My name is Donita Grebner, a licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Iowa and certified with the NCBTMB Nationally Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 2002. I attended Body Wisdom School of Massage Therapy, currently in Urbandale, Iowa, completing 715 hours if training. I'm also a member of the ABMP (American Bodywork and Massage Professionals).
My education consists of classes in Swedish Therapeutic Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Massage, Shiatsu and Reflexology.
I have had additional training in Prenatal, Labor and Infant Massage, a Reiki Master and CranioSacral Therapy from the Upledger Institute which was CranioSacral I & II (CSI, CSII) and Somatic Emotional Release I (SERI). Along with a class of Myofascial Release with John Barnes, and Orthopedic Massage with James Waslaki.
I am an independent Massage Therapist. My passion is to help my clients understand their bodies, pay attention to the discomforts they may be having and promote healthy living. After a consultation and treatment, I may recommend stretches to help my client, help themselves.
As a headache sufferer, I have a commitment to listening and communicating with my clients. I know the importance of relaxation and it is my goal that each client feels comfortable when they come for a session.
I begin each session with a simple prayer of surrender and thanksgiving. As a Christian, I am a vessel for the Lord's work. Many clients have expressed a relief from pain when they come in for another treatment. So we begin by giving thanks. At the end of the massage I silently close with a prayer as well, thanking God for the work he has done and continues to do in us.
