My name is Waya, and I am of Cherokee descent. My great grandmother was a survivor of the Trail of Tears. I firmly believe that healing is a natural part of who I am as an American Indian.

After spending 15 years as a combat medic (and Licensed Vocational Nurse), I opened up my private practice in 2003. Over the course of those years, I have learned that this is my true calling. The greatest part of my day is providing hands-on therapy and helping those in need.

I have 18 years of medical massage experience, including myofascial release, injury rehabilitation, CranioSacral Therapy, Deep tissue, Sports, and Prenatal.

My therapy is open to all age ranges, genders, and stages of life. Everyone can benefit from therapy - whether physical, energetic, or mental - and in consideration of your specific issues, I would like to help.

My Michigan License number is 21314021101.
