Petra is a licensed massage therapist, esthetician, certified transformational lifestyle and nutrition coach, and yoga and qigong instructor with over 20 years of experience. She is passionate about her work as a massage therapist and enjoys helping her clients and the people around her.
Petra recently moved back to Arizona after spending four years on Maui, Hawaii, where she completed an RYT 200 (200-hour) yoga teacher training at the Maui Yoga Shala. She also trained in Lomi Lomi Massage at Ho’omana Spa in Makawao and practiced massage therapy at the Andaz Wailea Resort in Wailea. She later moved to Boston to be closer to her family, where she worked as a massage therapist at the new Four Seasons Dalton Hotel.
In her massage practice, Petra offers an individually focused approach, applying a variety of techniques, such as Lomi Lomi, deep-tissue massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger-Point Therapy, Reflexology, Swedish massage, and hot stone massage—all of which she integrates into a flowing and deeply relaxing treatment. Her specialties include neck and shoulder work as well as low-back and hip treatments. She is trained in prenatal massage as well.
In addition to being a massage therapist, Petra completed a certificate program for esthetics at Artistic Beauty Colleges in 2001. She also studied and was certified in holistic nutritional wellness by the Global College of Natural Medicine in 2008, and in 2017 she completed a certified transformational lifestyle coaching program at the Southeast Institute of Healing Arts.
In her leisure time, Petra practices yoga, ayurveda, qigong, pranayama, and meditation and enjoys living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Petra is excited about learning new modalities and studying other approaches to healing the whole person. In turn, she hopes to inspire her community by applying what she has learned in her daily living. Petra is very excited to be part of the Rooted Integrative Wellness team and is looking forward to helping you reach your health and wellness goals.
