Treece has been licensed in Massage Therapy for 18 years in St. Paul and working within her own private practice.
Treece's very strong hands, a sensitivity to each patient's needs, and a keen sense of touch and years of experience with many, many muscular issues, has procured for her high success and a thriving practice.
Treece's diverse clientele have included
Athletes, dancers, musicians, waiters, working moms and weekend warriors, carpenters, doctors, lawyers, corporate executives, and IT professionals, and teens and young children. She has worked with issues arising from auto-immune diseases, repetitive strains and accident injuries, along with conditions as Scoliosis, Hip Dysplasia, and Cerebral Palsy. Many clients have been seeing Treece long-term; building caring client-practitioner relationships.
As an athlete from a young age, Treece developed a strong sense of connection with her own body, affording her an intuition that goes beyond her formal training and years in practice.
In addition, Treece's expertise was expanded upon, due to her own personal experience with 2 major injuries which caused severe jamming in her spine and broken bones in her leg. She faced the trauma one goes through when losing normal functioning of the muscular body along with the frustrations in seeking help, trying to resolve it. Through those difficult experiences and their full recovery, Treece developed an acute awareness of the body's phenomenal capacity to heal itself, significantly building on her knowledge and fueling her passion to help others fully heal.
Prior to her career as a Massage Therapist, Treece was an Elementary Classroom Teacher and Elementary Art Teacher for 8 years in San Antonio, Texas.
Although she will tell you she does miss teaching, both she and her nervous system do appreciate the luxury of focusing on just one person at a time.

Restorative Therapy at its Best
As a nurse practitioner and regular massage therapy client, I have never found anyone so talented in massage therapy and so in tune to what techniques are needed. Treece is able to "read" one's body and where injury, tension, etc. are held she is trained in rehab therapies and works to heal bodies. She is amazing at knowing where the mis-alignment, injury or held stress lies. She applies the amount of pressure appropriate but always says that it should not hurt and to let her know if it does. She is super responsive and I should know, I go to her almost every week and have made it a part of my wellness journey. - Donna 2012.
Healing and Educational
I found Treece through doing a Google search for a massage in St Paul. After reading her excellent reviews and liking her ideal location, I scheduled an appointment. I've now been seeing her about 1 1/2 years. One of my favorite reasons I enjoy going to Treece is that she truly knows what she's talking about. I have learned so much from her about how to listen to my body and why I have certain aches and pains. In addition she has recommended exercises to help strengthen my weaker muscles. My body has responded well to the regular massages and I've relieved much of the tension I'd carried with me for some time. She has helped relieve tension that a chiropractor alone couldn't do. I truly look forward to my sessions with Treece. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family looking for a therapeutic massage in a warm, relaxing environment. - Rachel 2011.
Caring and Knowledgeable
After several years of searching for a massage therapist who could actually relieve my chronic neck and shoulder pain, I finally found Treece. She is a caring, compassionate, knowledgeable practitioner who provides restorative massage treatment. Treece understands how the human body reacts to trauma and illness and how massage can best be used to counter the effects. This, combined with her years of experience, complete empathy for her clients, and ongoing quest to seek information and learn new techniques, enables Treece to consistently provide the most beneficial massage therapy I've experienced. - Nancy - 2005.
Finally Got Help
I have had chronic pain and headaches for most of my life. I've been to doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and other massage therapists. All gave me some relief, but it was only temporary. In the first massage I had with Treece, she was able to provide me with information about my muscles and body that no one had ever told me before. I did some research on the things she mentioned to me, and sure enough, all the symptoms fit. What I really love is that she recommended a program of exercise and walking that would help me to get long-term relief. Don't get me wrong - she gives some of the best healing massages I've ever had. But what I really appreciate is the advice to help me heal myself. I've been following this advice for about 6 months now, while getting monthly massages. My headaches have decreased in both frequency and intensity. Also, the chronic pain I've struggled with is mostly gone. My friends and family have commented to me how good I'm looking and that my skin is glowing. I am SO glad I found Treece! I would recommend her to anyone dealing with headaches or pain. - Kristen 2015.
Treece is a miracle worker. I have suffered upper back and neck pain for as long as I can remember. Ten years ago I had surgery to relieve the pain to no avail. I went to Treece the first time about 4-months pregnant expecting a relaxing massage, but what I received was more of a treatment. I won't lie - the first appointment was painful. But once the tenderness subsided in a couple days, I noticed the pain I've grown accustomed to be noticeably less. I was sold! After just 4 or 5 appointments with Treece, the pain that had plagued me my entire adult life was gone - which brings me to wonder why don't doctors "prescribe" massage therapy to treat chronic pain? Armed with an innate sense of the body and its needs, Treece could change the world with her magic hands! - K. Mann 2010.
With soothing strokes, gentle kneading and pressure, Swedish massage promotes relaxation as it calms the nervous system. This long-established modality releases stress, increases circulation and enhances the immune system.
This technique eases muscles out of their tightened "trauma" state by gentle pressure graduating to deeper pressure until the muscles have regained blood flow into their core, which re-softens and re-lengthens the muscle. This massage is necessary as soon as possible after initial trauma, in order to balance the nervous system and to prevent distorted memory from establishing.
This massage focuses on creating deep/sustained pressure going deep into the muscle to release all tension and stress. This facilitates healing of chronic pain conditions, by remolding and reshaping the tissues, renewing the body's structural soundness.
Aimed at loosening the fascial grip, using sustained and gradual depth of pressure to increase friction and melt thickened fascia, to erase destructive muscle memory and rebuild healthy muscle memory.
If you pay attention to an injury or dysfunction early enough, bodywork can become an alternative to surgery by identifying more clearly the exact "causes" of the imbalances, using movement modifications and massage to address them. When surgery is necessary, massage is very crucial pre-surgery. It calms the nervous system and boosts blood flow allowing the tissues, to be at their healthiest, improving the body's ability to rebound from the trauma faster while, producing the best surgical results, . Massage post surgery, is crucial for regaining the nervous system's balance, by gently removing the trauma memory that is left in the muscle due to anesthesia's "freezing" effects, while also naturally re-infusing and maximizing blood flow through the effected tissues, greatly speeding up healing and recovery time.

All muscular-skeletal pain is rooted out of blood flow and oxygen deprivation leading to, or from, an unstable structure.
Massage is the only treatment that, not only, is able to boost blood flow through a gentle, and natural approach which stretches deep into the muscle, bringing blood to its core, but is best able to assess what structural and movement imbalances are creating the pain in the process. Identifying all of the components that are causing pain, is very difficult without the sense of experienced touch.
Massage is a miraculous healing modality, that is unequaled in its ability to heal physical pain and bring emotional balance to each patient.
Understanding the imbalances that are causing pain is the fastest route to an empowered, full and healthy life.
By relaxing and calming the nervous system and providing deep, soothing pressure to muscles, the body's "natural medicine"--blood--revives and restores areas causing pain.
The right massage will address specific issues and create a gentle flow and balance between body and mind. Pain is the body pleading for you to pay attention. Pain is your greatest teacher. It is the most powerful tool in developing body awareness, which brings empowerment. The mind/body connection is the key to identifying the cause of pain, and thus knowing the precise natural methods in alleviating it for living a healthy, pain-free life. Watching this skill develop in each client is a true healer's greatest accomplishment.
