Who we are

About Atheling Wellness

My passion is to help people reach their full potential physically, emotionally and spiritually. I attended massage therapy school at Bellus Academy in Manhattan, KS where I became fascinated with the therapeutic side of massage. Our bodies are complex, beautiful puzzles that consistently surprise and amaze. I thrive on figuring out how those pieces fit together to produce overall wellness. Every day, I dedicate my practice to finding real solutions to treat the “whole being”. I specialize in energy work as well as many massage modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, heated stone, sports, prenatal, reflexology, cupping, oncology, and infant massage. My goal is to help you along your path to excellent health.


Highly qualified specialists
