Shelley Knuffke, LMT – Massage Therapist
Shelley began her love and study of natural medicine and holistic health over 30 years ago. She was a single mom so spent her time being mom and dad to her sons. She took a class here and there but could only recently dedicate herself to full time study. Shelley became a massage therapist because she believes in the healing power of touch therapies and believes massage allows the body to properly relax and use its innate ability to heal itself. She believes that the body mind and emotions can greatly benefit from massage, and quiet relaxation. Shelley incorporates aroma therapy, relaxation, stretching, strength and flexibility techniques into her sessions. She uses all natural and organic oils tailored to each client’s needs. She understands that no massage is like another but each one is unique and tailored to the specific needs of her client at that time. She is continuously studying the human body and new techniques for natural healing and massage. She is a firm believer that all we need to heal anything that ails us, mind, body or emotions can be found in nature and the power of touch therapies. Shelley enjoys nature and spending time with her children and grandchildren, who, she says are the light of her eyes and her inspiration for all she does. She knows and lives the truth of Hippocrates quote “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Shelley lives and shares her knowledge of proper nutrition and a vast understanding that if we feed our bodies properly, stretch and exercise properly, along with receiving regular massage, that the human body is absolutely capable of healing itself and being vital, energetic and free for our entire lifetime.  You can reach Shelley at 520.603.6605 or Knuffke.rmc@hotmail.com.
