You're familiar with the song 'The Long and Winding Road?' - It's a great analogy for the journey that has lead me to this place! As far back as I can remember I have wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. Over the past 10 years I've lived out this desire by creating a wellness community - a place for healing, connection and fun. It has been an incredible journey and I am very blessed to have both an amazing team as well as wonderful clients who are on this journey with us.

Your wellness is our passion
Although I always had a curiosity about natural healing, this interest was heightened when my family and I started seeing Dr. Tonnie for Network Spinal in 2004. Several years later I received a massage the massage therapist told me, “I’m here to help your muscles recover the best I can.” I had never looked at massage that way before and it piqued my interest.
At that point in my life, I was looking for new career I could be passionate about and decided on massage therapy. I completed my training at CenterPoint Therapeutic Massage in 2014.
I have had additional training in Advanced Shiatsu, Thai Massage, and Active Isolated Stretching. The style I use incorporates a bit of all 4 modalities. The goal of our work together is to help you recover and recuperate your muscles and fascia as much as possible.
My style of massage tends more towards Therapeutic; I look at the body in a mechanical/clinical way. Oddly enough, my time in the Airforce prepared me for this work. In the Air Force, I performed aircraft maintenance, and now I like to think I perform maintenance on the body.
Because every individual has different issues in their tissues, massage therapy is never boring!
I began my massage therapy career in 1992. I graduated from Northern Lights Massage Therapy School, and continued my bodywork education at the Minnesota Center for Shiatsu Studies. I am trained in Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, and pregnancy massage. I recently got certified in Special Populations through CenterPoint Massage Therapy School (previously NLMTS and MCSS), and am in the process of learning Reiki. I have worked in chiropractic clinics, salons, and as an independent contractor. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals in pain or stress relief, or relaxation.
My schedule is open to women, those who identify as women, and children.
For most of my professional life I worked with at-risk children and families and I loved making a difference in this arena. My career change into the world of natural healing came as a result of the life changing health benefits I have personally received at the hands of some very gifted healers. I have a great passion for helping others find natural solutions for optimal wellness.
My family history also played a role in pursuit of natural healing. As the youngest of six children spread over 20 years I could see where I was headed health-wise and it wasn't a pretty picture. I was determined to not be a product of my genes and so began my foray into the world of natural healing! In 2006 my passion for natural healing led me to open my first wellness center and since that time I have passionately pursued many avenues of healing, both for myself and my clients. I have taken extensive coursework in nutrition, aromatherapy, coaching for change and quantum biofeedback.
I find purpose and joy in life by inspiring others in their pursuit of vibrant health, economic security, rich satisfying relationships, personal and professional development, and a deeper spiritual life. The journey toward health and healing is best taken with a friend and I would be delighted to take that journey with you.
Whatever you do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has power, magic and genius in it. ~ Wolfgang von Goethe
Tonnie J. Wulff was born and raised on a farm in Stockton, Illinois. She completed her undergraduate work at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, where she developed a love for the sport of rugby. The physical nature of rugby led Tonnie to seek out NSA for relief of her neck and shoulder pain and numbness in her arms. The technique worked so well for her that she decided to train to become an NSA practitioner.
Tonnie studied NSA under several mentors, which lead her to New Zealand to do her internship. Upon graduation, Dr. Wulff went back to New Zealand for 10 mos to work as an NSA practitioner and play rugby.
For much of the past 13 years Tonnie has helped hundreds of people through the use of NSA, including the privilege of sharing her work on healing mission trips to India and Africa.
