She lives in Brookfield and enjoys staying active with yoga, swimming, running and biking (and with her five year old son).

Jesse has also spent time at triathlons, and Madison's Ironman - where she has acquired a great respect for these athletes. Jesse was training for her first triathlon when she discovered she was pregnant. Now, competing in a triathlon is still a goal for her.

After the near death experiences of her infant niece and a close friend, Jesse had the privilege to provide massage to them. She then realized her passion for massage therapy. Jesse still maintains that passion today in her practice and welcomes anyone who seeks massage therapy as a means of healing and staying healthy. She is also very empathetic to those dealing with chronic pain, as she has experienced many injuries - both sports and coincidental.

Rachel started her career in healing as a certified nurses assistant, where she gradually witnessed the profound healing difference that massage therapy had on bringing relief to her geriatric patients and accelerating her patients' care whom were recovering post operative. While at the home of a patient who was receiving regular massage therapy, the accumulative effects opened her eyes to the benefits that massage brings to those suffering in pain. 

Rachel expanded her education into massage therapy, and began practicing the techniques on her patients, seeing its powerful results: she enrolled at Anthem College and added to her education in physiology, anatomy, postural conditions, and pathology.

Rachel has a true appreciation for what massage can do for joint mobility issues, soft tissue pain, stress, chronic head aches, and injuries. Rachel has a very compassionate and cheerful demeanor, our clients always comment that she strives to make them feel comfortable.  

She specializes in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Pre/Post Natal, Trigger Point Massage, Gentle Stretching and Healing Touch Massage.

Katie Brewer, MS, LMT
​Massage Therapy is a second career for Katie who has a Master’s degree from UWM and worked several years as a professor.  Katie brings an educator’s attitude to massage, investigating the cause of the client’s pain issue and adapting the treatment session to fit the client’s particular need.

As a widowed mom of three kids, Katie found that massage was an important part of her own self-care. Not only did it provide physical rewards, but there was an emotional component as well - a lifting of the mood and feeling supported. She was inspired to learn massage and share its many benefits with others, sparking her drastic career change. 

Katie enjoys applying a variety of techniques to help clients: Swedish, reflexology, lymphatic, reiki - whatever is needed to bring relief, increase flexibility, and reduce stress.  Katie specializes in working with pregnant clients; her heart goes out to those enduring life changing events, especially those recovering from emotional trauma. Katie is the perfect match for hesitant newcomers to massage therapy.
Alexis'career in health services started as a biology major at UW-Whitewater. Knowing she wanted to be a career helping those in pain, but something that was a non-invasive alternative to surgery.

As the daughter of a carpenter, Alexis saw how daily stress and pain affected her family. As many parents, Alexis' father worked hard to provide for his family, but by the time he came home, his body was so sore he had little energy to be able to really enjoy, play or be involved with his children's active lifestyle.

Upon switching schools to Cortiva Massage Institute, Alexis practiced on her family, and that was when she knew massage therapy would become her life's work. Alexis' father commented that he felt like his body was "rebooting", the massage therapy gave him pain-free days to spend with his kids. Alexis derived a great deal of fulfillment knowing that her hands could bring her Dad comfort. And, as she worked on others, it became clear that massage therapy could benefit many families to stay happy and healthy.

"I want people to understand that massage isn't a luxury anymore, it's a way to reconnect and "reboot" your body."

Alexis specializes in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Pre/Post Natal, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release.
