Massage Therapist

Ericka Headshot Square.png

Growing up in various states across the mid-west, Erika suffered from chronic neck and back pain and migraines. It wasn't until her own experience with massage therapy and chiropractic that Erika was finally able to find relief so she could enjoy fulfilling her passions. It was through her therapeutic experience with massage that she decided to pursue her career in massage in Iowa City at East-West School of Integrative Healing Arts.


Since earning her Massage Therapy degree in 2017, Erika has loved the opportunity to work with people in a holistic way, giving individualized care that fits their specific needs whether they are suffering from chronic pain or looking for some much needed relaxation. While Erika believes in treating the whole person to offer the best therapeutic experience based on their needs, some of the most common massage techniques she offers is Swedish, prenatal, trigger point, sports, and deep tissue. 

Erika and her wife live in Bloomington with their rescue pup, Sophie and three cats Milo, Simba, and Nala. In her free time, you can find Erika sipping on a matcha at a local coffee shop, watching her favorite reality TV shows, or catching up on her reading list! 

For over 13 years, Jennesse has devoted herself to the art of therapeutic massage, drawing inspiration from a family immersed in various skin and body therapies. Through her own experiences and observing the impact of bodywork on others, she developed a deep appreciation for the body's innate ability to heal. This led Jennesse to pursue a degree from the International School of Massage Therapy in Atlanta.

Jennesse believes in the interconnectedness of movement, nutrition, and overall wellness. By emphasizing the restoration of balance and harmony, she blends a range of techniques such as stretching, targeted pressure points, and deep tissue massage to facilitate the body's return to a state of tranquility and ease. Jennesse crafts each session to suit the unique needs of the patient, with the ultimate goal of promoting well-being and relaxation.

Jordyn is the friendly face that greets you when you arrive for your massage. As our Patient Care Coordinator, she manages a variety of front desk and administrative tasks to ensure smooth operation of both Body Kneads Massage and Northern Life Wellness Chiropractic.

Jordyn and her husband, Truen, recently moved to their first home in Eagan. They are the proud parents to two adorable tuxedo cats, TJ (their first born) and Chonkers. When she's not being a rockstar in the clinic, Jordyn loves being outdoors, watching Harry Potter and psychological thrillers, and exercising her green thumb!

Sara is one of the friendly faces that greets you when you come in for your massage. As one of our Patient Care Coordinators, she’s a master of all things front desk and administration, keeping Body Kneads and Northern Life Wellness running smoothly and ensuring everyone feels right at home.

Sara joined our team in the Spring of 2024, bringing with her a background that includes a mix of experiences in health and wellness, transportation, and human resources.
