Ken Shockley, Massage Therapist

My name is Ken Shockley I grew up in Detroit Lakes, MN. My hobbies include taking my family camping, fishing, tubing, hunting, riding bikes and almost anything else we can do outdoors together. After an untreated work injury, years of pain and missing days of work I searched out a massage therapist for relief and what he did changed my life. Because of this I decided to learn all I could about massage therapy and how I could help others with same things I was suffering from; low back and neck pain. Massage therapy has been amazing, massage has not only helped with my pain but it has allowed me to continue doing the things I love to do, and also has given me a drive to help others relieve their pain and improve their quality of life.
After graduating from Charles of Italy School of Massage in Arizona, I decided to do just that. My career began working in a spa in Lake Havasu City, Arizona where I specialized in relaxation, edema, pain relief and pain management. A few years later I decided to move closer to home and started changing lives in Bemidji, Minnesota where I worked with all type of conditions and patients by performing massage and physio therapy. After 8 years of massage I am now excited to start using my extensive skills set to improve the lives of our community here in Thief River Falls, MN.

Type of massage I specialize in: * Deep Tissue * Swedish * Chair
I also specialize in: * Hot River Stone Therapy * Reflexology procedures * Trigger point therapy
