I'm Michelle Turkstra and licensed as a Massage Therapist in the state of Indiana. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree from Colorado Christian University and working in the social work field for several years, I decided to expand my skill set and enrolled at Center of Advanced Therapeutics in Denver, Colorado in 2003 to learn the art of massage. Over the years, I have practiced massage at chiropractor's offices, a massage salon, special events, in client's homes and now am based out of Jenka Massage and Spa in Crown Point, Indiana.
I began my endeavors in social work and massage therapy because I care for people and enjoy helping them. People love receiving massages and I love giving them. It is rewarding when a client feels less stress, less tension and more relaxed after a session together. I am motivated to give each client the personal care they desire and deserve.
In 2006 I became a full-time mom and while continuing to provide massage for clients, my focus has been on being mom, wife, homemaker and volunteer. It is an exciting time now as I begin my own business based in Crown Point and engage in the community providing therapeutic massage services. When not working, I continue to lead a moms group, manage my sons' soccer teams, volunteer at school and provide free Uber services for the non-drivers in my home.
