Rose studied Therapeutic Massage at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College - Ashland, and graduated with High Honors in 2012.
She became Nationally Certified, and has pursued several Continuing Education courses since.
She loves helping people relax, restore, feel good, and connect with themselves better.
Her client-focused bodywork style includes techniques such as Structural Integration/Connective Tissue, Relaxation/Swedish, Sports/Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Hot/Cold Stone, Aromatherapy/Therapeutic Oil, and Pregnancy Massage. Your client-focused session is always tailored to meet your therapeutic needs.
Rose believes the benefits of therapeutic massage are vast and worthy. Just like changing the oil in your car helps the engine function optimally - a great massage will keep your bodily structures, “your vehicle” running smoothly!
In addition to massage, Rose is trained in Hatha Yoga and has been a Registered Yoga Teacher since 2015.
She completed the 200 Hour Level Certificate of Training with Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute in Duluth MN.
As a native local to Washburn, Rose has moved away and moved back to the small town on the big lake.
Finding great solace in Lake Superior life, she enjoys a variety of outdoor activities.
To those visiting Washburn, she highly recommends the Houghton Falls Nature Preserve for a “pre, or post, massage” hike.

Author of the weekly Anatomy Nerd column in the Daily Press and now celebrating 16 years of Massage Therapy, non-invasive pain relief specialist Gina McCafferty has more of a results-oriented integrative style.
Gina graduated from the Cincinnati School of Medical Massage in 2005 and since then has focused on trigger points and postural considerations to relieve muscle pain. Since then she has helped many hundreds of people with back pain, sports injuries, work injuries, neck pain, frozen shoulder and shoulder impingement issues, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, old injuries, and more. Her style ranges from medium firm to deep pressure where indicated, often with a focus on "knots".
With a long personal history of endurance cycling, running, and triathlon training, Gina also enjoys helping athletes prepare for and recover from a big event. She has worked professionally with NFL players from the Cincinnati Bengals, College athletes from University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football and Basketball, Masters swimmers from the Cincinnati Marlins, Xavier University triathletes, and more.
She uses advanced soft-tissue strategies such as neuromuscular therapy to help people have less pain, better flexibility, and improved quality of life from the troubles that are caused by chronic, recurring and nagging pain. She often gets results where conventional methods have been tried but the pain keeps coming back.
Her favorite kind of massage is "fasci-ashi" or myofascial ashiatsu, which is a comfortable, effective barefoot massage for people who want the absolute best in deep tissue with results that last and last. Using her smart and gravity-assisted feet, she can still find and work on knots and stretch you out. Got muscle pain? Gina can "HEEL" that.
She loves working with people who want results from their massage yet still desire that exquisite massage "feel"-- people who have pain and limited range of motion, as well as people whose muscles are "tight" and enjoy the feel of deep pressure just as much as they like the work on targeted trigger points. Of course every session can be customized for your needs. You can visit Gina's personal website at www.ginamccafferty.massagetherapy.com
