and#8220;Iand#8217;ve always loved helping people and once Helen came along I realized I had an opportunity to go back to school to learn something new. Making other people feel better makes me feel good and, as a bonus, my hours are flexible. I can spend more time with my daughter and do something I love,and#8221; she said.

A month after moving to Truckee, Petra met Nicole Weiser, who has owned Unwind Salon in Truckee for the last six years. Unwind Salon offers hairdressing, tanning and now a European massage therapist. Petra offers many common types of massage, such as: Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, hot stone and myofacial release. In addition, she specializes in prenatal massage as well as MediCupping therapy, utilizing glass cups and a special machine to create suction on the body surface. MediCupping therapy facilitates joint mobilization and reaches deep into the soft tissue to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface, so the skin and lymphatic system can easily eliminate them. MediCupping has also been shown to quickly release scar tissues.

Petra uses Biotone Organic, pH balanced, hypoallergenic unscented creme or lotion. Prices for a one-hour massage start at $55 and new clients receive a second massage for $30 per hour. Petra also is an independent distributor of IT WORKS line of products, such as the Ultimate Body Applicator, an all-natural, herbal wrap which improves skin texture and tightness and minimizes the appearance of cellulite. She also sells other products like a full line of vitamins and supplements. Visit https://petra.myitworks.com.
