MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Thomson graduated from Heritage College in 2003 with an AOS in Massage Therapy. With more than 10 years of experience, Thomson has gained knowledge in a variety of techniques while his relaxed and professional manner effortlessly put his clients at ease, providing a tranquil atmosphere for his clients.

Philosophy: The body is psychologically programmed to be nurtured when it comes in contact with the world. My philosophy is to reconnect with that.

Mind/Body Balance: I feel that taking care of the body coincides with restoring the mind, therefore I partake in yoga, marital arts, extracurricular sports, weekly exercises and healthy eating. When focusing on the mind itself, I spend my time reading anything that educates me on the human body; including oriental medicine, acupuncture, martial arts, anatomy, psychology and nutrition. I also enjoy daily meditation and prayer to exercise the soul.

Favorite Treatment: The treatment that truly captures my passion the most is Prenatal. I was raised by a single mother and was surrounded by such strong women, which instilled into me the value of a woman especially through pregnancy. Mothers are overworked and under stress through the way the body changes through their pregnancy. I feel it is my duty yet privilege to care for a mother knowing that their focus and priority is not for themselves.

LICENSED ESTHETICIAN
MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Trina is dual licensed in Esthetics and Massage Therapy. She attended Entourage Institute of Beauty and Esthetics and Wellspring School of Allied Health for massage therapy. With more than ten years of experience in the field, she has developed her signature style of healing and relaxing treatments. Trina’s touch is described as nurturing, intuitive and empowering. Trina chose to go back to school for massage therapy to combine her deep knowledge for skin care with the healing and relaxing benefits of massage therapy to provide her clients with a more holistic experience. She hopes that each person she sees can not only achieve the results they are seeking for their skin but also leave feeling a deeper level of relaxation with every service.

Philosophy: My philosophy in all of my work is to allow the art of healing work its course. To truly heal one must find balance between the body, mind and spirit. Proper skin maintenance, coupled with detoxing, massage and exercise is vital to achieving optimal health and wellness. I hope that with my intuitive massages and facials all of my clients can find their inner happiness and that I can support them on their healing journey. I aim to give 110% at all times and to make my clients feel special, well taken care of and excited to come back.

Mind/Body Balance: The only way to truly live is to be in the present moment. I find my mind body balance by regularly meditating and using crystal singing bowls for sound healing to expand and create harmony from within. I also love to unwind with bubble baths and find solace in cooking. Spending time with my daughter is also a critical component to keeping my mind body balance.

Favorite Treatment: My favorite treatments are chemical peels/facials and Swedish massage. I love incorporating a variety of modalities in my facials and massage like crystal singing bowls, healing crystals, jade rollers, aromatherapy and hydrotherapy to elevate the client experience. Aside from facial treatments, I also specialize in massage therapy, body treatments, full body waxing and brow shaping.

Daniel’s mission is to promote self-healing for mind and body and to give a healthy alternative to pain medication through massage.

Philosophy: Massage to me is about treating the smallest problem/pain quicker, before people reach for the pills. Having the knowledge to help people in need of healing and relaxation is great!

Mind/Body Balance: In my spare time I like to work out, run, walk, learn something new, bend some rules and spend time with my kids. To keep my head clear I also get massages and boxing, I really like to push my body and get my blood flowing to work the toxins out.

Favorite Treatment: Deep tissue, Swedish massage, sport massage, cranial sacral, reflexology and stretching. I really like doing it all at once during the massage.

MORGAN HANLEN

Philosophy: Everything is connected. Trusting our innate intuition naturally balances the body and mind.

Mind/Body Balance: My whole life’s outlook is about body/mind balance! I enjoy Yin Yoga and the spa pools to relax. I also enjoy swimming to get my blood flowing..

Favorite Treatment: I love to use myofascial release style work in my massages. The long holds and compression allows the body to reconnect, resulting in relaxed muscles and more body awareness

Sydnie Kistler

MONDAY | 1PM — 8PM
TUESDAY | 1PM — 8PM
WEDNESDAY | 1PM — 8PM
THURSDAY | 1PM — 8PM
MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Sydnie attended Pinnacle Career Institute in South Kansas City and has been practicing massage since 2018. She has happily been with Woodside for two and a half years as it has given her the time and space to get to know her clients. Sydnie specializes in a multiple of types of massage but additionally is certified in cupping therapy and can assist in lymphatic draining.

Philosophy: I believe that people can truly benefit from massage therapy in so many ways. Being able to understand and get to know my clients and their needs is extremely important to me. That way I can find the best way in which to cater to what their bodies and minds need on an individual basis.

Mind/Body Balance: Seeing results from the work we do as massage therapists is so rewarding because not only does it help aid the body in the way it needs but it also heals the mind. You know that unexplainable feeling of zen you have when leaving the massage room? That isn’t just because of your relaxed body — it is also due to the release of endorphins in your mind and the recycling of uplifting energy in your spirit. It’s a beautiful thing and I feel humbled to be able to partake in helping people shed that metaphorical heavy weight they’ve been lugging around.

Favorite Treatment: My absolute favorite technique/treatment is cupping therapy. This technique is specifically beneficial to promoting healthy blood flow and separating muscle tension build-up as it assists in lymphatic drainage and even pulls toxins from your body. The toxins are pulled to the surface of the skin allowing it to be flushed out and leaving you feeling renewed — and that is just some of the many benefits of cupping. If you’re not sure about the technique or have any questions about this type of therapy I would love to talk about it or even do a small demo to test and see if you like it! 

CharliFainter

CHARLI FAINTER

MONDAY | 9AM — 4PM
WEDNESDAY | 9AM — 1PM
SUNDAY | 9AM — 4PM
MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT

Charli graduated from Wellspring School of Allied Health March of 2018 and spent her first year trying to find her niche as a Massage Therapist. She believes in treating the body as a whole unit, finding the initial reason for the tissue’s discomfort and offering various ways to help rebuild and heal the body from the inside out.

Philosophy: I take an integrative approach to wellness, incorporating a variety of modalities to help the body relax and exit the fight or flight response while removing adhesions in the tissue simultaneously. My specialty is deep tissue via neuromuscular retraining, utilizing trigger point work, stretching, myofascial release and Craniosacral Therapy. I am also trained in Oncology Massage allowing me the absolute honor of working with an individual who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer, safely and ethically.

Mind/Body Balance: Everything in life is about balance. You balance your work and home life. Kids, family, deadlines, extracurriculars, meetings. I like to slow things down a bit, literally. I work low and slow to take you away from the hustle and bustle of everything bugging you. I also think I’m super funny, so hopefully I help your heart feel lighter after you get off my table, too.

Favorite Treatment: Hands down, Craniosacral Therapy. The first day I walked into the seminar I was completely addicted to how the tissue just melted under a nickels’ worth of pressure. I carry that method into my other deep tissue work, and it is such a game changer for my client’s post massage recovery time. Also, there’s a connection that you make with your client when you work with them so gently, yet so deeply – I like to call it “unraveling the onion of the body”. We find the spots of concern and just start unraveling the facial tissues until you get to the root cause of the bodily dysfunctions. I always sprinkle a little Cranio work into my regular massage work and find that my clients are grateful for the extra TLC that it gives.

Mandy graduated from Mitsu Sato Hair Academy in Esthetics. She specializes in results driven treatments with extractions and tailored services for each individual client. She also likes to make sure her clients are relaxed by incorporating aromatherapy, scalp massages as well as neck and shoulder massages.

Philosophy– I believe that maintaining healthy skin can reduce stress and insecurities. Starting prevention early and keeping a good home care routine, as well as getting regular facials, can reduce the amount of time spent correcting.

Mind/Body Balance – In my free time I enjoy working out, walking my dog and cooking new recipes. I also make sure to get regular facials and massages to keep my mind and body in its optimal state.

Favorite Treatment – My favorite treatment to perform and receive is the Collagen Mask. You can feel and see the benefits of it immediately and it is a great add-on to any service. Anti-aging treatments are so important to start early!

LICENSED ESTHETICIAN

Bridget has been a licensed Esthetician since 2016. She attended Clary Sage college in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she completed their Esthetics program with Honors. Bridget has trained with various professionals around the country that has allowed her to incorporate a style that mixes traditional facial massage and pressure points in conjunction with powerful ingredients to give you not only your best version of your skin but also a relaxed state of mind.

Philosophy: I like to focus on education with skin care and keep up to date with the latest ingredients, treatments and machines so I can deliver the best results to my clients. I believe that preserving youth via facial treatments and lifestyle changes is possible and needles are not always needed. I hope that my clients are happy with the progress they achieve after a treatment with me and that they can attain their best skin yet with continued treatments with me but also a customized, expertise driven home treatment, too.

Mind/Body: We are a soul; we have a body. I believe in energy and caring not just for your body via yoga and proper nutrition but caring for your soul and healing from trauma that is not always known to you. I love to meditate, practice yoga and am a firm believer in the power of journaling. I try to spend time outside enjoying nature or wandering art museums to help my creativity come alive.

Favorite treatment: My favorite treatment is probably the Vitamin C Facial. I love incorporating modalities such as a sonic spatula to help exfoliate the skin and using Gua Sha to aid in massage. Extractions are essential in my services since that can help with pore size and help managing acne. I also love to incorporate essential oils to help aid in relaxation while in service.
