I come from a family of health care practitioners (MD, RN, NP/MW) and knew early on that healthcare was my passion. But it wasn’t until I injured my low-back snowboarding and went to a chiropractor that I became interested in the healing art.

In Skagit County, I attended school in Clear Lake and Sedro-Woolley. Then continued at SVC, WWU and Life Chiropractic College West in California.

I’ve been practicing since 2005 and really enjoy helping patients overcome back/neck pain conditions that prevent them from living an active and fun life.

I love hanging-out with my wife and two kids and also enjoy snowmobiling, snowboarding, mtn-biking, dirt-biking, weight-lifting, reading, traveling and cooking.

T RossTonya Ross, LMT

Techniques: Pregnancy, Relaxation, Medical Massage & Swedish Massage

Tonya is a Washington native who enjoys books, dogs, and all kinds of hand crafts. After living a life at a desk all day, personal experience with regular massage led her back to school to learn more about the practice and its benefits.

Massage provides not only physical benefits, but also has a positive impact on mental and emotional wellbeing. With how stressful life can be, finding a space to quiet the mind is crucial for also achieving physical relaxation. Massage can facilitate healing from injury, promote regular physical wellness, and improve general state of mind.

Tonya, for one, can easily say that getting regular massage has changed her life for the better.

Picture1Michael Berner, LMT

Techniques: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Pregnancy, Myofacial Release, Triggoir-Point.

I have been working with clients that struggle with chronic and re-occurring pain since 1993. My passion is helping people get out of pain and helping them from possibly needing surgery. Healing is my gift and that is why I have been doing this for so long. My style and expertise is deep tissue body work, most people seem to like a firmer touch if done properly for that individual. That being said, if you like a lighter “spa” touch, I can, do that for you. I have many years of in the trench training and knowledge
working with people in various states of pain and dysfunction. I learned a very dynamic
technique called Shulman Therapy, I learned it from Shulman himself. He was 84 and
has seen it all. I have taken that training with my schooling and my own experience and
created my own style, I call it, "Dynamic Release Therapy". I look forward to working
with you and will do all I can to help you feel better and have a pleasant experience.

Img 1325 1Stephanie Russo, LMT

Techniques:  Injury Treatment, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Myofascial
Release, and Relaxation

Since graduating from Spectrum School of Massage in 1994, I have enjoyed the
privilege of practicing massage; removing a bit of tension from the world, one
treatment at a time, is rewarding in and of itself.

It’s been proven that relaxation enhances healing, and my experienced hands
are skilled in a colorful palette of techniques for easing away tension with
respectful, compassionate touch. I specialize in slow, soothing techniques,
attuning to your verbal and non-verbal communications to gauge the pressure

In my experience, cupping is quite effective but under-utilized. It is an
ancient healing art from Asia, using suction to gently release restrictions from
deeper tissues, increasing blood flow, breaking up adhesions, and is a useful
complement for most pain relief treatments, including chronic conditions like scoliosis and restrictive scar tissue.

I moved to Bellingham to complete a Biology degree at WWU, and stayed for the
awe-inspiring beauty and the friendly community here. I love my peaceful country
home, with my husband, two dogs, and three cats, and our backyard nature
