Deborah Knoll & James Martin

Presenter’s Bio

My name is Deborah Knoll, but Dee is just fine! I have been doing massage therapy since 2004 and esthetics/skin care since 2010. My passion for massage therapy came from wanting to help people in a therapeutic and beneficial way. I believe there are many benefits to massage such as increased circulation, relief of chronic pain, stress reduction, flushing toxins out, aiding in the healing process of injury/recovery, and balancing the mind, body, and spirit. Each client is treated as an individual and will experience a customized massage that is most beneficial for them. Some of the techniques or type of massage I specialize in are Swedish, Deep tissue, Sports, Pregnancy, Hot stone (geo thermo therapy), Myofacial release, and Reiki. I am state licensed and am always continuing my education to learn more about this growing field.

My name is James Martin, but most people call me Jim. I graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 1997. My massage expertise include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lomi Lomi, Myofacial Release, and Sports Massage. Certified in Myofacial Release since 1999, I am a Deep Tissue Specialist who can easily handle the needs of clients requesting deeper treatments as well as those looking for a more relaxing experience. I am state licensed and enjoy learning about new techniques by keeping up with continuing education and constantly going with the flow in this changing field. You may order her book Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland online or purchase one at WeeM. Cynthia will autograph your copy if you like.
