Dawn Kindley

Licensed Massage Therapist

Dawn’s interest in massage therapy began when she started getting treatment for chronic neck and shoulder pain, which was a result of being thrown out of a car during a car accident that she was in when she was 8 years old. Dawn saw how chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy create a perfect marriage since they became a necessity in managing her pain and maintaining mobility in her neck. It is for that reason that Dawn went back to school to get her massage therapy license with a goal to work in a chiropractic office. She graduated on the President's List of Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare of Herzing University and has been blessed to work at Essentials ever since.

Dawn’s schooling and on-going education of essential oils here at Essentials have increased her interest and desire to live a more natural and organic life. That is not to say that she is 100% natural, organic, and free of all impurities and negativities. She is, however, consciously aware and continuously aiming to be more natural.

When Dawn is not working, she is enjoying time with her family, reading a book, or doing something creative. She wishes to be a world traveler, but resolves to practice massage therapy until that happens. She looks forward to utilizing her knowledge and skills to effectively deliver therapeutic massage so that you can experience relief from pain, get increased mobility, and have a healthier functioning body.

Conrad Cunningham

Licensed Massage Therapist

Headaches are one of the biggest issues that people suffer through. Clients, co-workers, and family continually come to Conrad complaining of headaches. In the past, he too struggled with headaches. He became dedicated to finding a root cause and more natural way to deal with the debilitating effects headaches can bring. While going through chiropractic care and massage therapy, a light bulb went on; he had found an answer to his cause. Developing a focused treatment plan was the most important and effective direction in his path to recovery and prevention. Conrad was inspired to help others, so he began the process to obtain his massage therapist license and graduated from the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare in April of 2015. His passions in massage lie more on the therapeutic side utilizing deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy. He hopes to become efficient in nerve mobilization in the near future.

After work you might catch Conrad at the local rock climbing gym, mountain biking, or hiking the trails of Fontenelle with his family.
