Hannah Ross, AAS, LMT has a background in addictions counseling with an Associate’s in Behavioral Health at the University of Fairbanks Alaska.

Having played competitive soccer since the age of twelve, she has relied on massage herself. She moved to WI from AK in 2015 and became a licensed massage therapist from MATC. Hannah knows the huge impact mind and body have on one another. She believes a strong communicative relationship with her client is the key to delivering therapeutic work. Her massages are deep tissue, Swedish-style with trigger point and stretching mixed in. Interests in continuing education lie in muscle energy technique, acupressure, and meditation.
