Hello and Welcome to Iaomai Massage!
I am so pleased you are here. Self-care is very important and it is crucial to build self-care time into our daily routines if we want to thrive and not just survive. Massage has many personal benefits: from lowered blood pressure, to released muscle tension, to just a little time to breathe and unwind, and much more. I have personally witnessed the difference massage can make and think it is truly amazing the amount of healing that can take place in one hour!
My name is Amy Whiteman and I am the Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)/founder of Iaomai Massage in Monroe, WI. The word "Iaomai" is the Greek written word meaning "to heal" or "make whole" and embodies my belief that in utilizing the body's innate materials (oxygenated blood and the circulatory system) and mechanisms through massage, a type of healing can be facilitated that restores the body to its original whole and well self. I received a thorough, well-rounded massage education at East-West Healing Arts Institute in Madison, WI and am now equipped with many effective Eastern and Western massage techniques. My goal is to create an individualized treatment plan for each client that promotes sustained healing and long-term pain relief. I like to challenge clients in the sense that in order to relieve pain and encourage proper function of the musculoskeletal body, the body's soft tissues must be manipulated in a way that changes their actual structure. This can be a rather intense process. However, I work inside your comfort level and am always willing to adjust treatment upon your request. I can also give a relaxation massage if you feel like that’s what your body needs on any given day.
This is a safe place to come and be as you are. I maintain utmost confidentiality and value your experience and input. I am so excited to be a part of your health journey and hope that, together, we can work to give you an overall improved quality of life!
