Minerva Noltee, LMT CNMT  MA39051, Fully Vaccinated

Founder of U-Knead-A Massage Inc./Therapist of the UKAM healing team.

In 2006 I started U-Knead-A Massage at a small two room studio in the back of a warehouse. It was small but it was all mine. I was grateful and excited to embark on a journey that has been the best years of my life. Continuously growing, we currently have three therapists and are always looking for like minded therapists to join the "UKAM Healing Team". My overall vision is to create a truly unique healing environment.

I have and unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Over the last 23 years I have had the pleasure to study with true geniuses in their craft like, John Barnes, completing 5 out of 10 John F Barnes Myofascial Release approach seminars. Some of the other Masters of  Massage include, Aaron Mates, Margie Meshew, Shamaya Cha, Jim Cain, Michelle Manna, and my Thai teachers Therdchai Chumphoopong his mother Mum and brother Mos, Pichest Boonthumme and many more. Each of them taught me something invaluable about myself and the best ways to help heal my fellow man through therapeutic touch. "Healing Through Therapeutic Touch"

I have completed certifications in Neuromuscular Therapy, Medical Massage, Thai Massage, Prenatal Massage, and Lymphatic Drainage. Some of my other specialties are MFR, Hot/Cold Stone Therapy, Bamboo fusion, Thai Herbal.
