“April/the Practical Healer can provide either an excellent massage or Shiatsu therapy and I really appreciate her versatility and her skill level.  Her knowledge of anatomy and pressure points is noteworthy and she employs that knowledge to provide help and relief that I wouldn’t have expected or even thought possible.  Can’t wait for the next session!” -Tom G, Minneapolis

Can’t Wait

“April is my go-to massage therapist. Many times in the 10 years I have known her she has gotten me back onto my feet with just a massage or two. I’ve had massages by other people but April is, by far, the best!” Megan C. Daycare provider, Mpls
