Kendra Cromwell

Kendra is beyond excited to be the new owner of Truckee Massage! She has six years of experience under her belt and many more to learn and grow from. It is an honor for her to be a part of the Truckee Massage team and is humbled to have a role as the leader of this business. She mixes a variety of slow, intentional techniques, done in a way to induce relaxation and also relieve chronic pain and tension. She enjoys using trigger points, range of motion, and intuition to provide gentle or deep bodywork. After growing up in North Lake Tahoe, she continued to CU Boulder for a BA in Anthropology and traveled the world before settling down to eventually become a massage therapist back in her beautiful home. Massage is truly a remarkable way to help other people, learn about the body, and challenge herself. She feels fortunate to have such a rewarding job in such an absolutely magical place.

Margo James

Margo earned her Bachelor's Degree of Exercise Science in 2012 within the beautiful foothills of Boone, NC. It was her passion in utilizing the human body which began during her first gymnastics class at 6 years old that catapulted her into an array of athletics and eventually led her to seek a kinesiology related-career. She has, over time, developed the belief that a multitude of differing modalities on the body can each have their own deep and profound effects. Employing this knowledge within her own life has had induced exceptionally positive impacts and now fuels her desire to become an effective bodyworker. She believes that a massage should be everything that the client wants it to be and more, and makes a whole-hearted effort to deliver such.
