I've been practicing Massage Therapy & Reflexology for over 18 years now.
I'm licensed in WV and have reached the highest level of professional Certification in the United States by gaining my
National Board Credentials.
I'm also the lead house
Professional Herbalist &
I've built my skills up over the years
in some vastly different settings- everywhere from touristy high end Spas, contracting with professional athletic venues, such as WWE Wrestling & the Ohio Valley Greyhounds, quick walk -in high traffic spas outside of a military base, working with long distance professional drivers, local mom & pop salons, to providing medical therapy in a Chiropractic office.
Each locale allowed me to build
vastly different professional skills and learn some really great ideas to
add to my professional tool belt to build Under The Elder Tree to
to better serve the entire community.
I opened Under The Elder Tree in the
Spring of 2014.
I'm always asked where the
business name came from.
My last name is German,
& it literally means, "Under The Elder Tree". And traditionally, the Elder Tree is the tree representing the village "wise woman" to whom you could come for health and healing guidance for various
ailments & complaints.
It almost seems as if I was meant for this line of work!
I've applied my knowledge, intuitive skills, and call for healing to create a space for people to
receive safe, educated guidance
on health and wellness care.
Taking care of your health
shouldn't be a luxury!
I strive very hard to keep all of our holistic services & products at a price point where everyone can afford to make them a part of their health maintenance program.
Those who work at the shop
are more than employees.
We have become a
family of healers
who have all been
by a collective call for helping.
I have extremely high expectations
of my staff.
I will accept & retain only top notch,
highly trained &
whose call for healing
comes from the heart & not the ego.
I set the bar high so you can get
the best care possible!
We are a quirky, creative bunch
who all support each other
-and you -
with all of the unique skills
we each bring to the table.
What can we help
you with today?
