“Goddess of Goodness”

Owner, Licensed Massage Therapist, Esthetician and Nail Technician, Certified Spray Tan Specialist

As KRAVE’s founder and owner, I have been a practicing massage therapist since 1999, licensed through the South Dakota Board of Massage Therapy and a certified massage therapist through Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. I uphold these same standards for each massage therapist you will experience at KRAVE.

In 2015, I expanded my skills by becoming a licensed esthetician and nail technician.

I am truly passionate about continuing to grow and learn, along with the Krave team, and build a safe, therapeutic environment where everyone in our community feels welcome and cared for.

“Heart-Centered Healer”

ModiYoga™ Certified Yoga Instructor (200YTC), Mindfulness & Confidence Life Coach, Reiki Master Teacher, Vibrational Sound Therapist, and Intuitive Chakra Energy Healer

Hello beautiful souls! My name is Charmaine and I am a wild soul healer and spiritual rebel. I have dedicated my life to being the person I once needed at different times in my own life journey. This has led me to focus my growth in the skills of trauma healing and human wellness. I continue to expand my knowledge and am currently a ModiYoga™ Certified Yoga Instructor (200YTC), Mindfulness & Confidence Life Coach, Reiki Master Teacher, Vibrational Sound Therapist, and Intuitive Chakra Energy Healer. I also enjoy working with clients on goal digging, journaling, tarot, and crystals to explore their personal soul needs and desires.

I completed study in the summer of 2021 with the Maharani Academy, earning my certification in Ayurvedic Sacred™ Bodywork, Marma Therapy, and Pancha Karma, and will graduate from the South Dakota School of Massage Therapy later this year. 

That sounds like a lot, I know, but full person wellness is my passion and I take my self-care seriously. Let me help you reimagine self-care which nourishes your full being.

“Skincare Siren”

Licensed Esthetician

Hello! I’m Karena and I’ve been a licensed certified esthetician since 2014, having received my certification from Stewart School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I am intensely committed to my clients and am truly passionate about benefiting their skincare needs. I not only provide the more commonly recognized facial modalities, I also specialize in providing specific IMAGE Skincare therapies; facials, peels, and body treatments.  

I recently graduated from the South Dakota School of Massage Therapy where I was able to build my wellness knowledge. I am excited to share this additional service to my clients for a true therapeutic wellness experience.

“Herbal Oracle”

Namaste. My name is Brook and I have dreamed of being a massage therapist since I was a little girl. My dream will come true at the end of 2021 when I anticipate graduating from the South Dakota School of Massage Therapy. As an avid learner, my education won’t stop there. I want to bring self-care to focus and continue growing in skills, including Reiki, Sound Therapy, and all things in natural herbal healing. 

In my free time I am out hiking, going on adventures with my family, and truly just enjoying the small things in my life that bring me back to my zen.

I joined KRAVE in the opportunity to learn and grow more with you and I would be honored to be part of your next KRAVE experience! 

“Muscle Maven”

Hi! I’m Nicole. After five years of helping cyclists of all abilities to purchase the equipment which was right for them, I am now pursuing my passion of helping those same athletes, and many more, maintain their best full-being wellness with massage therapy and other therapeutic modalities. My proposed graduation date from the South Dakota School of Massage Therapy is the end of 2021.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, fishing, and camping. 

I look forward to helping you achieve your massage goals, whether for relaxation, stress management, pain management, or injury recovery. Hope to see you soon!
