about the owner…

Marci grew up in southwestern Montana, but has lived from coast to coast over the years.

Her three beautiful and talented children are all grown up–living their own lives.

However, in 2001–when her children were still very young—Marci became a registered nurse. She enjoyed a nursing career that extended nearly 20 years in Texas, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, and New Jersey.

In 2007, she graduated from the Denver School of Massage (Steiner Group/Cortiva). She completed this 850-hour program in tandem with working at St. Anthony Central’s sister-hospital in Frisco, CO—taking care of a multitude of high altitude trauma patients.

She couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to implement her new skill set on-the-job.

Ultimately, Marci spent eleven years taking care of cardio-thoracic, trauma, and surgical intensive care patients and four years taking care of patients in the emergency department–as a nurse and as a case manager.

The more she incorporated massage with her nursing care, the more able she was to see how the work benefited her patients.

Reductions in pain and anxiety… positive changes in hemodynamics…

The last portion of her nursing career, was spent in a university setting assisting with cardiac diagnostic procedures while also vetting medical experts and analyzing medical records as a legal nurse consultant in southern arizona.

She transitioned to providing in-home wound care, phlebotomy, and basic nursing care/teaching to a varied–though mostly indigent–demographic in southern New Jersey just prior to opening the Studio.

this season of her career emphasized how broken our healthcare system is–it was also a catalyst for her to make a change…

Massage therapy is her calling–for now…
