About the Owner
I am native to the DC Metropolitan area. Growing up in southern Maryland on my grandparents farm initiated my interest in whole foods, cooking and the connection we have to our earth. My passion is whole body wellness, from food to fitness, massage therapy and holistic healing. My focus for myself and others is to have daily mind, body and spiritual awareness.

Welcome, I am Natasha Thoesen, I am a Licensed Massage Therapist of 18 years, an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Reiki III Master Practitioner, a previous Massage Therapy Instructor and an essential oil enthusiast. I love creating happy healthy toxic free relationships and helping others do the same. I coach clients to be the best version of themselves by helping them meet and exceed their wellness goals, with education, empowerment and accountability. I coach them through nutritional challenges, lifestyle changes and educate them on the benefits of clean living. By listening to their needs and supporting them though life changing choices.
Massage Therapy was my first career passion. It has led the way for my holistic lifestyle and the encouragement of others to do the same. It is my favorite creative outlet, that comes with so much reward. Helping others in such a way that takes talent and dedication. Teaching Massage Therapy came a bit later in my career with perfect timing. Educating students at The George Washington University on massage safety and technique was so enjoyable. Helping them feel confident in applying techniques to family members and friends. Seeing them find confidence in themselves to learn a new trade was truly fulfilling.
Holistic Health Coaching came after many years of diving into every book I could get my hands on, conversation I could have about nutrition and trying to cure my own health related issues. Clients, family and friends would ask me for advice on these matters almost daily. So I decided to enroll in one of the most fulfilling educational programs and the largest Nutrition School in the world, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. With passion and an intense curriculum I graduated with a Certification as a Holistic Health Coach.
My love for essential oils goes hand in hand with both Massage Therapy and Health Coaching. I have used essential oils from the very beginning of my massage education. Allowing them to support every aspect of my life has created a well rounded sense of mindfulness and health. I have always incorporated them in my massage practice for the many benefits they may provide both myself and each client.
See for yourself what sets us apart.
Cheers to your health!
