Massage Hours of Operation


COVID-19 Updates & Price Increases

Hello my fellow Velo du Nordians,

First off, please allow me to thank you for your business at Velo du Nord Coffee & Wellness. We also thank you for your patience and grace as our shop is adapting to fit the safety guidelines set in place by MN government in response to COVID-19. As you may be aware, the massage studio is temporarily closed with appointments open in June – although I believe an extension on massage services is highly probable. I further speculate once bodywork opens for service that essential, medically-focused massage will take priority. Please anticipate a follow up email to be sent by the end of the month.

In other wellness news, I have completed my Master’s of Acupuncture from Northwestern Health Sciences University in April 2020 and I am one step closer to being able to incorporate needling into my healing toolkit. (NW graduates are having a super space age virtual commencement!) The next order of business is waiting until testing centers open to take boards and become licensed in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Acupuncture coming soon!

Please observe a price increase in massage charges starting June 1, 2020 due to high demand and with the future expansion of acupuncture services. The increase is significant but best reflects my level of skill from 13 years of practice and matches competitor pricing. As a reminder to current clients, please consider investing in a series package at the current price before the rate change goes into effect:

Current Pricing
Swedish Massage $80+tax
Deep Tissue/Sports $90+tax
Outcall $120+tax
5-Pack of Swedish 60 Minute Massage $350
3-Pack of Deep Tissue 60 Minute Massage $240
3-Pack of Deep Tissue 90 Minute Massage $355
5-Pack of Deep Tissue 90 Minute Massage $550

We can create custom package deals for you.

Sports/Deep Tissue Massage

Improve your body’s performance with pre-event, post-event, training, and rehabilitation massage.   By varying pressure depth and technique with strategic timing to your training, sports massage can improve range of motion and remove specific knots to keep your body running smoothly.

Sports/Deep tissue massage sessions include a fusion of Trigger Point Therapy/Acupressure, Swedish-style Deep Tissue, Facilitated Stretching, and/or Gua Sha(Scraping).  Multiple sessions are recommended. Light to Deep pressure.

Swedish Massage

Maintain your heart health! Relaxing Swedish Massage soothes tired muscles and calms the mind with long flowing massage strokes directed towards your heart to improve blood and lymph circulation. Light to Medium pressure.


Pregnancy Massage

TLC for all mothers! A modified Swedish-style massage session with use of pillow support for side-lying positioning. Only for 2nd or 3rd trimester pregnancies.  Aromatherapy is encouraged. Organic products available.  Light to Medium-Deep Pressure.

Chair Massage

Chair Massage is performed in a specially designed chair with your clothes on. It is excellent for relaxation and neck, back & shoulder issues.




Auricular Acupressure with Ear Seeds

The placement of seeds or beads to stimulate specific acupuncture points on the ear. Chinese Medicine views the ear as a micro-representation of the body as a whole, able to treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions addressed by the stimulation of ear points.



Cupping therapy is an alternative therapy (originated in early Chinese Medicine) using glass cups to create suction to move stagnation in the body. With the ability to pull out heat, toxins, and increase blood and lymph flow, this type of “inverse massage” provides another level of relaxation and pain relief. Can be a stand alone treatment or included in a Deep Tissue/Sports Massage session.


Heat Therapy & Moxibustion

“Moxa” is a form of heat therapy where Mugwort, a warming and moving herb compacted into a stick, is burned above the body.  The intention of heat therapy is to warm and invigorate energy & blood in the body and to dispel certain pathogenic influences.




Studio is Handicap Accessible
