The Bodhi Tree holistic healing

Meet our Staff

Ally Goodman LMT

Owner/Massage Therapist

My name is Ally Goodman, and I own The Bodhi Tree Holistic Healing center in Downtown Lawrence, Ks. In 2013, I graduated from Boulder College of Massage Therapy (BCMT), in Boulder, Co. While attending BCMT my studies included Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue and Integrative massage. In addition to the many massage techniques I learned, I also took courses on herbalism, reflexology, and energy healing.

Practicing massage allows me to help clients enrich their lives through a mind, body and spirit connection.I went to massage school because of my desire to help people by meeting them exactly where they are in their lives. Pain, stress and sleep problems all contribute to a lower quality of life and my goal was to learn a skill to alleviate these problems and to make this my life's work.

 

 

 

Dani Ybarra LMT

Massage Therapist

My name is Danielle Ybarra. I graduated as a Certified Massage Therapist from Wellspring School of Allied Health in Downtown Lawrence. I have always been passionate about helping others. After attending KU for a year, headed toward a future in nursing, I decided that field wasn't for me. After doing some research I found Massage Therapy. Massage, for me, enabled a perfect blend of mind, body and spirit connection into my life. Now, my hope is to enhance people's everyday lives through alternative therapies. During my 16 month training I was able to get an in-depth understanding of several modalities. I became familiar with Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Reflexology.  My hope is to assist clients in actively partaking in their health and wellbeing, and therefore alleviate tension and pain in the body. 

 

 

 

Stacy Mitchell LMT

Massage therapist & Reiki practitioner

My journey as a holistic practitioner started in 2000 after graduating from the Lunaria Body Institute with a desire to help others on their journey of self healing. Currently, I practice Swedish and deep tissue massage, acupressure, geriatric massage, lymphatic massage, prenatal massage, reflexology, sports massage and therapeutic touch. I offer general healing but specialize in treatment of specific ailments, some examples being TMJ therapy, fibromyalgia, sciatica and plantar fasciitis. I am also pleased to offer Reiki, having completed Reiki III Master/Teacher training.
 
Reiki is a lying on of hands energy healing that utilizes universal energy channeled through the practitioner and into the receiver. This can be a very effective tool to address any issue in the physical, emotional and energy bodies, and is completely safe for those who can’t receive other forms of bodywork due to medical contraindications. I am happy to offer full Reiki sessions as well as partial sessions as an add-on to your massage!
In addition to holistic education, I have also received a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Emporia State University with emphasis in Environmental Ecology, Aquatic Biology and Nutrition. My goal is to offer tools specific to individual needs by combining science based and holistic knowledge to get the best outcome; offering a balance for the mind, body and higher self.

 

 

 

Keri Mack LMT

Massage Therapist

 

Hello, I'm Keri Mack. 

I've been a massage therapist for 8 years. My focus has always been in pain management and tension release. I was fortunate to work in a physical therapy clinic for a time and worked directly with therapists and their patients. I studied Swedish, Integrative, and Deep Tissue massage in school and I've taken continuing education classes in Myofascial Release. 

My journey to becoming a massage therapist started, funny enough, with a massage. Every time I left my massage it left me with an overwhelming feeling of wanting everyone I know to feel this way. I knew that I wanted to be of service to people and to help make their lives better and massage therapy seemed like the perfect fit for me to accomplish that.

Knead a break? 

Whether you are in need of pain relief, looking to relax, or just routine maintenance, we can work together to address your needs. With over ten years of experience, I can provide Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Reflexology, Trigger Point and Prenatal Massage. I am also trained in hot stones, silicone cupping, CBD oils, and foot scrubs. I especially love to work on the "extra" things like hands, feet and scalp. If you're looking for a little break from the daily grind come visit me! My puns may be cringe worthy but my massage work is top notch.

I have studied acupuncture, herbal medicine, Shiatsu, Qi Gong, Yoga, fire cupping and many other alternative therapies.
