Meet the Therapists


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.


Gale Klenk

Gale Klenk is the previous owner of Truckee Massage and has over thirty years of experience. She serves as a professional mentor to the other therapists and delivers a wonderfully effective and therapeutic massage. Her initial training lies in Neuromuscular Therapy and reaches far into advanced massage techniques. When Gale is not massaging or skiing, she is working hard to roast arguably the best coffee around at Sierra Pacific Coffee Roasters here in Truckee.


Margo James

Margo is one of our newer team members at Truckee Massage. Besides her certifications in Massage Therapy from the Bodhi Tree Healing Arts Center in Carson City, she has a higher education background in Exercise Science. She approaches massage medically and energetically and is happy to work with people of all body backgrounds. Margo never ceases to give her best intentions and experience into her work.
