About the Therapist

Hi! I'm Savanna!

I've been practicing massage in the Des Moines area since 2017, when I moved to the area from southeast Iowa. I graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy, one of the best clinical massage colleges in the country. I was trained in many different massage modalities at Carlson, including over 100 hours of Neuromuscular Therapy. My time at Carlson was one of the best and most valuable experiences of my life!

I became a massage therapist simply because I love helping people. I wanted a job that let me be the best part of every person's day, and that's exactly what I found in massage therapy! The added bonus is that I get to be my own boss. I haven't always been good with authority; my mood changes almost as often as my hair color.

In my free time I love playing with my dogs, Murphy and Hamilton. You will find pictures of them displayed proudly in my office. I also have pet frogs. You've probably heard of crazy cat ladies, well, I'm a crazy frog lady!

To keep myself in shape for work, I play roller derby. I've played for seven years, for a few different teams. Currently I skate and coach for Skunk River Riot in Ames. I'm extremely passionate about roller skating and derby, so if you don't want to spend our hour learning every detail of the rulebook, you'd better not bring it up!

Enough about me! I can't wait to meet you and be the best part of your day. See you soon!
