Mary Jo Brandl LMT, RP, CPT,

Hello! Allow me to introduce myself, My name is Mary Jo Brandl and I am the owner of MJ's Balance Studio. Let me share with you the types of services I offer and what my scope of practice is.

First off let me explain to you that MJ's Balance Studio came together as a part of me getting sick and regaining my health. In April of 2009 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I saw a lot of doctors, talked to a lot of people, and read a lot of information on Fibroymalgia. I explored massage therapy, hot yoga, diet and other exercise. I decided to become a Zumba Fitness Instructor to help me regain my health and I did just that!!! I am currently healthy and take no medications. I am a NESTA Certified Personal Trainer and Sport Yoga Instructor. I am certified by the American Red Cross in CPR/AED and First-Aid for infants, children and adults.

In October 2013 I completed my Reiki I certification becoming a Reiki Practitioner, and in December 2013 I completed my Reiki II certification. I received my Reiki attunements from Reiki Master Teacher Arline Rowden in Madison WI.

In August 2014 I graduated from East-West Healing Arts Institute in Madison WI becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist, LMT. East-West is built on the premise that body, mind, and spirit form an interconnected, inseparable system, and that true healing can only take place when all three are addressed. Therapeutic massage and bodywork has been used for thousands of years as a powerful tool for healing, and can have a profound effect on the whole being of both the client and the practitioner. The Asian Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage Diploma Program is an 800 hour program that prepares students in the analysis and synthesis of knowledge and skills of Western and Eastern science and bodywork. The interdisciplinary program includes thorough instruction in Eastern and Western modalities of therapeutic massage, as well as a rigorous course of study in Western science Eastern Theory. I have learning things such as Tui Na, Cupping, Acupressure and more!!
