About Our Therapist
Florence established Turquoise Sky Massage in 2006 after completing her massage training at The Sedona School of Massage in Sedona, AZ, and subsequently passing the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork test to become a nationally certified massage therapist. Florence is a member of The Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and actively pursues continuing education opportunities in her areas of specialty, Connective Tissue Therapy and Structural Bodywork, which she blends creatively and seamlessly with Swedish Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, and Deep Tissue Massage to provide her clients with custom massage sessions designed to provide relaxation, rehabilitation, and pain relief on an ongoing basis.
In 2008, Florence decided to further her studies and deepen her bodywork practice. She successfully completed a 300-hour intensive program in Awareness Based Structural Integration at the Sedona School of Massage and is now a Certified Structural Integrator. She is extremely pleased to be able to offer her clients the profound benefits of the 10 Sessions of Structural Integration, in addition to her other therapeutic massage modalities.
When not in session, Florence can be found hiking the beautiful foothills surrounding Hidden Springs and Boise, snowshoeing or skiing at Bogus Basin in winter, kayaking on the Payette River in the summer months, curling up with a good book, tending to her organic herb garden, or perusing the aisles of The Boise Coop for tasty organic treats. Florence brings her love of outdoor activities (along with her personal and professional knowledge of the aches and pains that may "go with" such activities) to her massage practice. She combines this love of the outdoors with a passion for helping her clients relax and attain a sense of balance and calm during and after their massage sessions.
