Patti Kaszuba lived in Alaska for 32 years before moving to the Flathead Valley, in April of 2017. Her love for working with people prompted her to pursue a degree through the University of Alaska's massage therapy program, where she graduated in 2004. Her overall goal as a massage therapist is to help her clients maintain or increase their physical health, consequently helping decrease stress levels in her clients. Patti integrates various techniques including Swedish Massage, reflexology, acupressure, deep tissue, pre-natal, and oncology massage (which includes lymphatic work), depending on the needs of her clients. Through these techniques, Patti is able to help alleviate pain and tension, in her clients, by allowing the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Her love of people and massage therapy is evident through her bright smile and her interaction with her clients, which makes her an invaluable team member at The Wave.
After spending almost 15 years away from Montana, Brienne left her job as a Field Director for a Wilderness Therapy company in Utah and headed to the Flathead Valley to start school at the Massage Institute of Kalispell while working as a supervisor at a therapeutic boarding school.
Brienne's study and practice of yoga, rock climbing, Reiki, and Qigong gave her a strong foundation in body mechanics and energetic healing. Her goal in massage therapy is to help her clients maintain a healthy body and a healthy mind. She applies a mixture of deep tissue, myofascial techniques, and neuromuscular therapy to release muscle tension. She enjoys drawing from these various modalities to create an individualized experience that will help each client feel their best. She is excited to be practicing at the Wave with clients who are tuned into their bodies.
