Wendy’s first massage school was in Santa Cruz California in 1981. She has done many other wonderful adventures and careers but massage has always called her name and won her heart. Wendy loves her work as a Massage Therapist. In 1996, she studied at her second massage school, School of Good Medicine Massage right here in Whitefish. Following school, she became Nationally Certified through NCTMB. She then ended up assisting the instructor with the teaching of specialty classes. For the next 13 years she helped launch 8-14 students every year into the wonderful career of massage therapy.
Due to a few personal injuries throughout her years, she has learned: how to respect recovery, what the body needs, how to work with and help change muscle dysfunction following an accident or surgery and how to correct bad postural habits. She believes her injuries have been a huge blessing and are an asset to her work.
Wendy knows how helpful massage can be when there has been trauma and injury; she has had about 4 great comebacks! Wendy loves to help create change in a body by finding the short muscle and/or problem. She helps to make awareness and educate the client with her many modalities. If you are planning surgery, recovering from a physical trauma or just want to relax, Wendy can help. By working with your Physical Therapists, Acupuncturist, Chiropractors, Medical Doctors and Medical Insurance, Wendy will gladly be apart of your supportive team during your healing process.
Wendy loves the great outdoors and playing in all four seasons. Skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, camping, rafting the great NW Montana river system all summer long, biking, hiking and motorcycling are all favorite parts of Wendy’s time when out of the office. After a long day fishing on the river she enjoys eating her catch. When she is not playing outside, she is helping with her local youth church group, or giving rides to elders in need.
Wendy has now been doing massage about 30+ years and plans to continue. She has had a dream of going bigger than just herself and has accomplished that since April 2012 with her new facility of Fifth Ave. Massage in Whitefish, Montana. Located on a wonderful corner just a few blocks off Main Street, Fifth Avenue Massage is high profile with a super convenient location. Wendy has handpicked other incredible therapists who all give a wonderful, therapeutic, safe, caring, and intuitive massage to round out your experience when you visit us.
Again, Wendy loves her massage work and it shows, in her loving, caring, knowledgeable style, her returningclients, her busy schedule of regulars, her business ethics and the way she manages a responsible, wonderful team and office that works together. To all the therapists at Fifth Ave. Massage, clients come first. By covering each other’s schedules when needed, the team works out client appointments during each day of the week, evenings, and with notice. The connection between the team at Fifth Ave. Massage is professional and friendly allowing guests to feel right at home.
