Junko Agena, Massage Therapist

Born and raised in Japan, she has undergone extensive training in the great state of Texas where she acquired her Massage license. And now she moved here to Meridian where she is delighting her massage therapy clientele. Of course, training and licensing doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have that “healing touch” and caring hands to match. Well, I can tell you wholeheartedly that she has all of the above.

Tea Bruderer, Massage Therapist

Tea Bruderer, Massage Therapist

Tea attended The Milan Institute of Allied Health. She enjoys doing different types of massage, for instance: Swedish (relaxation) massage, deep tissue, and also likes to incorporate passive joint movements/stretches into her sessions. The favorite part of her job is to strategically figure out which muscles are contributing to pain, working them out, and then gradually contributing to her client’s recovery and success.




Ariel Wiggins, Massage Therapist

Ariel attended the Milan Institute in Boise. She has loved being able to treat patients in the Treasure Valley since 2019. She is fascinated with how the body works and is constantly looking at new information and studies to stay at the forefront of massage techniques and practices.

Ariel has worked at chiropractic offices for years and believes that a close relationship between Chiropractors and Licensed Massage Therapists enable patients to recover from injuries or pain much more quickly.

She has advanced training in deep tissue massage, sports massage, abdominal massage, cupping therapy, and several other modalities. Ariel loves customizing each massage session to benefit every patient she sees.
