Hanna Friedericks is nationally certified, Wisconsin state licensed, and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. A graduate from Lakeside School of Massage Therapy, Hanna has been offering high quality massage, to a diverse clientèle, since 2008.
Hanna believes in a holistic care model and supports her clients journey to form healthy habits. Good sleep, a healthy diet, clean water, and everyday stress management, can be the best health care insurance. When we create the right conditions to activate our parasympathetic nervous system, our bodies are allowed to do what they are meant to do: heal themselves.
Hanna will encourage you to breathe deeply and reach new levels of relaxation. She will "listen" with her hands and heart, working gently, efficiently, and deeply, to find the places that need attention, space, movement and light.
Hanna was born in a small town, on the South Dakota plains, and has been deeply influenced by the serenity of nature. The vast open space of the prairie has always been in her heart. It has taught her that great wonders are revealed through stillness and presence. Hanna now lives in the Driftless region, of southwest Wisconsin, with her husband, two cats and three house rabbits. She loves gardening, hiking, traveling, cooking, and learning new things.
