Our Massage Therapists

Jordana Arnold, CMT

Jordana's passion for massage became a practice in 1992. Her intuitive bodywork is a blend of conventional massage and vibrational energy work. Her massage sessions are infused with energy work that permeates the physical layers and weaves into the spiritual and emotional fabric of her clients. The use of infused oils with her well seasoned technique, make for a healing encounter. A session with Jordana is a rare opportunity to be nurtured by an artist in a medium that is uniquely her own.

Jordana has maintained a Lawrence, Kansas practice since 1993. She keeps chickens, bees, and a couple of herd dogs at her east Lawrence home. When she is not practicing massage she can be found hiking with scouts or up to her elbows in a renovation project.

Jessica Phoenix, CMT

Jessica's work can best be described as intuitive, integrated and deeply therapeutic. Her strong hands and gentle nature leave clients feeling relaxed and revived. She is often praised for her deep tissue massage. In 2007, Jessica received massage therapy certification, and has been practicing professionally, ever since. In 2018, she received certification in cupping therapy and is so thrilled to be sharing this ancient healing art.

While practicing massage, Jessica became increasingly interested in the powers of aromatherapy. She began blending her own massage oils and aromatherapy sprays, and as a result, Lilac Moon Apothecary was born. Now clients can enjoy house made massage oils and custom blended aromatherapy products at home and work.

When out of the office, Jessica is raising her son, Noah, and taking care of their home. She is also a skilled writer, visual artist and musician.

Cara Schuster, CMT

Cara began her massage career in 2005 upon receiving certification from the White River School of Massage. After working in spa environments for over a decade, she is grateful to take that experience and now practice independently, feeling rooted at Kaw Valley Massage. Her techniques and style are deep, intuitive, restorative and refreshing. Simultaneously working deeply, yet providing relaxation, she leaves her clients feeling renewed. She holds a certification in Cupping Therapy, a highly versatile and ancient modality. Cara loves to share her philosophy based in holistic health, for the complete life cycle.

Cara enjoys connecting people, places and things. She is happy to provide Eldridge guests with all the information they need to make their visit in Lawrence wonderful, or assist established Lawrence residents with resources they may need. Cara can also be found working as an End Of Life Natural Care provider for her business Fox Den, traversing the Kaw Valley ecotone with her familiars, and creating elixirs in her east Lawrence home.
