A Little About US!
Kaia Van Natta
Owner of Whitefish Wellness
Licensed Massage Therapist
Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
Certified Continuing Education Provider
Growing up in Wausau, WI, I have been an avid outdoors-woman since the day I could walk. I spend my spare time shredding the ski slopes, playing on the water, and working in my woodshop. I have always been fascinated by nature, the human body and how things work, which helped me find my way into holistic recovery.
I attended Denver School of Massage Therapy for my Professional Massage Program and then went on to accomplish my Masters at Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2009. As a Master Bodyworker and Board Certified LMT, I have had extensive training in many modalities and know the human body well. My favorite modalities include: Cranial Sacral Therapy, Cupping, and Aromatherapy.
I have traveled to and from many ski resorts and tourist towns working on tired vacationers and skiers. Now that I have put down some roots here in Whitefish, Montana, I have opened my own practice providing massage therapy focused on whole body wellness. I am also a Certified Continuing Education Teacher for LMTs and an Aromatherapy Specialist too.
I look forward to helping you expand your knowledge & improve your wellness.
