Tamara Haller is a licensed massage therapist and energy/emotional healer specializing in Swedish, deep tissue, medical, and injury massage.  Tamara has been a licensed massage therapist for 3 years, graduating from Utah College of Massage Therapy in Lindon, Utah in 2013.  She is continually studying new techniques and modalities of massage as well as different types of energy work, emotional healing, nutrition, and essential oils.  Healing the body, mind and spirit is her passion in life.

With every massage you will receive specialized attention and a massage/session tailored to your individual needs.  Hot towels, complimentary aromatherapy, water bottle, and mints are included with every session.




Swedish massage is the what most of us think about when we hear the word "massage."  It is sometimes also called traditional massage.  Swedish massage is performed by a trained and licensed massage therapist who lubricates the bare skin with massage oil and uses gliding and other movements to massage the whole body.  

The purpose of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body, but it also has a number of other health benefits.  Swedish massage improves blood circulation, increases the level of oxygen in the blood, helps the body removes toxins, improves flexibility, eases tension and helps with pain management.

This is accomplished by using a variety of techniques, primarily rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.  Other techniques the therapist can use include kneading a muscle, cross-fiber friction to break up muscle knots (adhesions), percussion-like tapping, shaking motions, and stretching.  

Swedish massage (and physical therapy) was first developed in the 1820's by Dr. Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839), a physiologist and fencing master.   In the early 19th century he developed a system called "Medical Gymnastics" are borrowed techniques from China, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. These became the known as "Swedish movements" in Europe and "the Swedish Movement Cure" when they came to the U.S. in 1858. Today it is simply known as Swedish massage, the most popular Western massage.  

Massaging the skin, the body's largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and well being.  After a Swedish massage, it's a good idea to give yourself time to relax and let the benefits sink.  It is also highly recommended to drink lots of water. Hydration is key to feeling your best after a massage.


Energy/emotional healing work


Energy healing is often discussed as a new, somewhat unexplainable therapy. Truth is, energy work is an effective bodywork that is as ancient as healing itself.  

The body is, after all, bioenergetic and seeks to maintain balance. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, called the body's natural capacity to heal itself vis medicatrix naturae--the healing power of nature. We are not separate from nature; in fact, we are intrinsically a part of the energetic web of all life and all things. Modern science is slowly catching up with this basic understanding, historically common to cultures the world over.

Almost all cultures share a fundamental belief that life is more than just physical processes in a body; life is a unity of the physical, mental and spiritual, and is infused with a special energy or force that gives it vitality. Energy healing, or energy work, seeks to restore, promote, and maintain health and wellness to all those elements by influencing and supporting the body's bioenergies. These energies are variously referred to as qi (pronounced "chee"), prana, vital force, life force, 'lan vital, mana and more. When disease hits, it's understood as a disruption or distortion of these energies.

Energy work is a valuable ally to good health-whether as preventive maintenance, a holistic approach to addressing imbalance and disease, or as a complement to allopathic medical care. No one method is better than any other method. I personally include many different modalities into my energy/emotional healing sessions including: Reiki, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Reflexology, Cranial Sacral, Matrix Energetics, Emotion Code, and intuitive work.



aromatherapy/symphony of the cells


Essential oils are gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, but their use is not new. The use of botanicals as healing agents is a long-standing practice throughout human history. In fact, essential oils and other botanicals have been used in wellness practices as early as at least 5,000 years ago.

The term aromatherapy as we know it today was first coined in 1937 by the French chemist and perfumer Rene Maurice Gattefosse. He was not a believer of the natural health movement but was interested in the properties that essential oils exhibited.

In 1910 he burnt his hand badly in his laboratory and being the first available compound handy, treated his badly burnt hand with pure undiluted lavender oil, which not only immediately eased the pain, but helped heal the hand without any sign of infection or scar.

He also found that minute amounts of essential oils are absorbed by the body and interact with the body chemistry.

During the second world war, as a result of Gattefosse's experiments, Dr. Jean Valet used essential oils to treat injured soldiers with great success.

In the 1950's Marguerite Maury started diluting essential oils in a vegetable carrier oil and massaging it onto the skin using a Tibetan technique which is applied along the nerve endings of the spinal column.  

Symphony of the Cells is very simple yet profound in its effect.  Certain essential oils are dropped along the spinal column and feet of the recipient, and lightly massaged in, thus mixing the oils with the cerebral spinal fluid.

Symphony of the Cells protocols specifically address the support of various body systems: Cardiovascular, Digestive, Hormone Balance, Inflammatory, Lymphatic, Maxim, Neurological, Osteo, and Respiratory. 

Generally Symphony of the Cells is most effective when received every 3 days. The number of sessions varies with each case -- sometimes one is sufficient, most of the time a set of several is needed until results are achieved.
