I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I studied at the University of Puerto Rico and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agronomy. I served in the United States Air Force for six years. Afterwards, I studied massage therapy at Blue Cliff Community College in Gulfport, Mississippi. Recently relocated to the Grand Cities Area, I'm licensed by the North Dakota massage therapy board. My education from Blue Cliff includes neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, shiatsu and prenatal massage. I look forward to helping my clients relax their sore muscles and provide ways to maintain an active, healthy and pain-free lifestyle.

Stayce Kringstad is breaking the silence and educating women about the challenging side-effects of pregnancy and the postpartum body. It’s typically the first time a woman feels a disconnect within her body which can be disappointing. Many women suffer from a weak core and pelvic floor, incontinence, or Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation). You are not alone and you don’t have to settle for, or believe, these things are the “price of motherhood”. With the proper knowledge, you can live in a strong and capable postpartum body (postpartum is forever ladies).

After having her fourth baby, she discovered she had Diastasis Recti and didn’t know where to look for help. The medical advice suggested was a tummy tuck which didn’t seem like a realistic solution. Stayce is a Registered Nurse and knows how invasive surgery is: “How was I supposed to heal from a major surgery while caring for small children?" She spent over a year researching and learning everything she could about Diastasis Recti and putting all that knowledge into healing her own body. She knew it was her calling to spread this knowledge to as many women as possible. Stayce has taken multiple trainings and is a Pregnancy and Postpartum Certified Exercise Specialist and a Certified Embody Instructor. She attends women’s health summits, keeps up on continuing education and teaches the best practices based on the current research!

You can learn from Stayce by attending one of her Workshops, joining her “Rock Your Body” Healing/Learning/Support group, and learn to workout smart through “HIIT with a Twist” weekly classes. HIIT with a twist is a full body workout designed to safely and effectively strengthen your core. The workouts use minimal equipment and will teach you how to reconnect with your body and meet your body where it’s at so you can get stronger and move on to the more challenging movements you love. You can find information about any of the above by visiting www.corelastic.fit and you can also follow Stayce on social media IG@Corelastic.fit and FB page “Diastasis Recti Education a Natural Healing Approach by Corelastic”

See more about us below.

I have been studying yoga for 30 years and teaching for 22 years. I have completed extensive teacher trainings in Ashtanga Yoga (power yoga with Beryl Bender Birch) and Anusara Yoga (with John Friend and many of his senior teachers). I am a 200 hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and yogahour certified teacher.

Yoga is one of the most respected methods of self-care and personal development. It calms the nervous system and balances the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves. It is a highly effective set of techniques to enhance health and vitality, by promoting energy flow throughout the body. It includes physical poses, breathing exercises, meditation and deep relaxation. Cultivating the virtues of the heart on the mat helps us meet the challenges we encounter off the mat with an open heart.

Photo and biography coming soon...

My name is Jarrod Blake, and I’ve been practicing massage since March of 2016. I graduated from the Denver School of Massage Therapy and immediately took an interest in the injury and rehabilitation side of massage. Being able to help athletes and others who have hurt themselves accidently is something I find great pride in; and I love being able to help people recover faster than they thought they would. 

I’ve been trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Prenatal, Hot Stone massage, Injury Rehabilitation, and Sports massage. I find the deeper, more technique focused massages to be more therapeutic and to have a better effect than a soft Swedish massage. 

Looking for Independent professionals (rent-based OR commission based with advantages) to work alongside us and create one location with multiple services. Massage therapists, estheticians, acupuncturist, healing touch, reflexology and others are welcome to get in touch with the owner, Amanda Wheeler to discuss this communal opportunity.

Nationally Certified and ND Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)...see my Yoga Trainer credentials below. I have been practicing massage therapy full-time since 2010 and am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor. I enjoy offering full body pain relief but I specialize mostly in headaches, neck & shoulder pain, lower back restrictions, sciatica, prenatal & infant massage. I am certified in the following massage techniques:

  • Headache management therapy
  • Orthopedic massage for cervical pain
  • Neck and shoulder release & mobilization
  • Massage Cupping bodywork therapy
  • Sciatica relief
  • Prenatal massage
  • Dynamic Stretching
  • Gua Sha techniques
  • Raindrop Technique (Young Living Essential Oils)
  • Emotional Balance Massage (Young Living)
  • Aromatherapy Techniques for Wellness Practitioners (Young Living)

Additional specialized training I have completed includes carpal tunnel relief techniques, infant massage, hot stone and cold stone massage and aromatherapy massage.

I have completed Master's Yoga Teacher training of over 700 hours: I am a YogaFaith 500 hour Master Yoga Instructor and Yogahour 200 hour yoga teacher; registered as a Yoga Alliance RYT-500.

I teach yoga classes for the main purpose that yoga was intended, for self-care and wellness. The focus in my yoga classes is:

  • Breathing exercises (pranayama) and nidra (deep relaxation)
  • Stress & anxiety relief, calm the nervous system, relieve depression
  • Therapeutic postures (asanas) that are alignment based to bring balance, openness, mobility, pain relief and correct posture to the body.
  • Increase flexibility and/or strength because health can not exist without a balance of equal flexibility to strength.
  • Private therapeutic sessions are available and highly recommended to find what your body needs and to receive a personalized home sequence created for you after 2-3 sessions. 
  • Beginners, Intermediate, & Advanced classes with variations of vinyasa, flow-form yogahour themed classes, christ-centered classes, strength focused, yin & sports, kids, anxiety, pain relief & specific areas of the body.

My yoga background:

I have been practicing yoga since 2007, although I began dedicating myself to regular practice in 2011. I began training with yoga teacher Carol Murie in Grand Forks, ND. In 2015, I completed a rigorous 200 hour yogahour teacher training created by Darren Rhodes of Arizona. I trained under Sam Rice of Arizona and Patty Gorder of Grafton, ND through the Sam Rice School of Yoga. I began another 200 hour teacher training in 2017 with YogaFaith which is founded by Michelle Thielen of Washington. YogaFaith is a christ-centered yoga practice that can include prayer, Bible scripture, and christian music either with lyrics or not. I completed my 500 hour Master's Yoga Certification through YogaFaith in June 2018 to include more in depth study into specific ailments, sports, various yoga styles, PTSD, trauma, anxiety/depression, limitations and more. Beyond my trainings, I have taken additional workshops & seminars from Christina Sell, Dr. Neil Patel, Sam Rice, Carrie Hoff and Jaimie Perkunas.

How yoga has helped me & could possibly help you:

Yoga is a true passion of mine but I feel it is also necessary to my physical health, mental & emotional health and spiritual growth. When I dedicated myself to regularly practicing yoga, it strengthened me in ALL of those areas. Yoga is not a religious practice but it has allowed me more quiet time to meditate on scripture, to pray and more time with God, where my full life of children and business endeavors do not allow for.

I've had SO much less pain and more mobility since practicing yoga regularly! Doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, OT, personal trainers...so many professionals now highly recommend yoga! Why? It has numerous benefits for every single person while having less "side effects" than other fitness or wellness routines (ex. running is hard on the joints, weight lifting is hard on the muscles and joints, etc.). Every body is different but I encourage you to try a private session and a few basic classes to truly experience the difference it could make. I'm excited to help more people feel better and live more fully. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.

True Healing Massage, Yoga & Wellness  is a therapeutic massage, yoga & wellness studio that offers individualized and attentive treatments, classes & workshops in the Grand Cities area to aid in alleviating the physical, mental & emotional toll of our fast paced society.

Our Mission: To provide a relaxing, warm and safe environment where clients will receive the treatment that best fits their specific needs. Ultimately, work to find the source of the issue, relieve muscular aches & pains, increase mobility and provide referrals if needed.

Our Vision: Create a spiritually inspired facility to promote healing where all clients can feel comfortable and know that their needs are the number one priority. This facility will have highly trained professionals and maintain excellent customer relationships.

Our Logo: Our logo has been upgraded recently; it was outlined by the owner Amanda Wheeler and put into digital format and creation by a friend of hers in New York. Amanda designed the original logo as a sketch of abstract hands overlapping to make the Jesus fish. The new logo kept her vision of the hands coming together to create the Jesus fish in a more professional way. Amanda's christian faith is the drive behind her ministry and careers. She believes she has been given a gift and she has a desire to share that gift with others to help them grow and heal mind, body and soul.
