Synergy's Massage Therapists

Mike Nelson, LMT

I was born in Kansas City, MO, and lived there for a couple of years and until my mother and I moved back to eastern Iowa. I graduated high school from Waterloo West in 2008, and went on to Kirkwood CC to pursue a criminal justice degree. After about a year, I realized I wanted to try something else. After 5-6 years of trying different careers, I decided to give massage a chance despite not knowing anything about the profession or what my future held. In 2017, I attended Carlson College of Massage in Stone City, IA and it was the best decision of my life.  My main focus is sports massage for chronic muscle pain and look to advance my path further over the coming months adding the NRT courses in the future.

Alice Spencer, LMT

Alice is a graduate of Carlson College of Massage Therapy in Anamosa, Iowa.

She offers deep tissue, neuromuscular, Swedish, prenatal, and 30-minute neck and back massage. Hot towels are used every session to pamper and soothe the client.

Alice believes that the most important thing as a therapist she can offer, beyond any technique, is a healing intention. Her mindful presence can assist her clients towards reaching their desired outcome.

Whether healing from injuries, stress, or tension relief, she will set a careful intention for you on your healing journey. Personally, she has learned how massage plays a big part in assisting to regain health, balance, as well as heal and release pain. She is grateful for the experience each client brings.

Alice enjoys spending time with family and friends, and loves everything outdoors.

She also is currently furthering her education to be a Licensed Esthetician.

Read what some of her clients say about her…

“Alice brings a calming and positive energy to every session.  She understands the body and how to provide a therapeutic AND relaxing massage. She sets a very comfortable atmosphere. I’ve become a regular because I know Alice will get that knot to release, and I won’t be sore afterwards.”
-Ashley Shaw

“I’ve been seeing Alice for my massages for two years. I try to go every month. She always knows the right pressure based on how I’m feeling. You get a feeling of peace as soon as you walk into the room. Love the scents of the essential oils. It always puts me at ease. Would highly recommend!”
-Meana Hackman
