Teresa Steele

Originally from Philadelphia, P.A., I have lived in Idaho since September 2003. I've traveled all over the world as that's what happens when your in the military! We loved Idaho so much, we decided to stay! After my military commitment, I went back to school to pursue my nursing career. I currently am a Licensed Practical Nurse. Although I love nursing, I decided to further my career in a way I feel I can help the whole person, both physically and mentally. I graduated from Milian Institute as a licensed Massage Therapist. I'm able to use my medical background knowledge in Massage Therapy that I feel benefits the ultimate outcomes of why many people get a massage. It's so rewarding to see someone leave with less pain and stress than when they first walk in the door. My goal is help you! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, camping, fishing, running, exercise, and pretty much anything that involves being outdoors enjoying this awesome state we live in!

Jon Buffington - Clinic Administrator

I was training for my first marathon in Chicago, and I blew my knee out on my last 20 mile run, which was 2 weeks before race day. After recovering and working with a personal trainer, I happened to cash in on my gym’s free 30 minute massage. I had never received bodywork before. After 30 minutes on the table, I realized the corporate sales world was not the place for me. After moving to Boise, I went to massage school.

I graduated from The Milan Institute in Boise in 2012, and have been practicing ever since. I am nationally certified (NCBTMB), and am a member of ABMP. I have worked with professional athletes, collegiate athletes, grandmas, corporate desk warriors, moms, super heroes, and next-door neighbors.

I really enjoy doing deep tissue, passive joint mobilization, and using heat in my sessions. I am your medium to deep pressure, structural therapist. I can custom-tailor sessions and devise treatment programs specific for everyone, and I love working with all types of people.

When I’m not massaging, I do improv comedy, hang out with my family, and obsessively follow Da Bears and Da Bulls.

Katelyn Van Loo

I graduated from the prestigious school of Utah College of Massage Therapy in Lindon, UT with over 900 hours of schooling and clinic hours and a 4.0 GPA. I customize my modalities and technique to fit each and every client. Every person is different therefore no two massages will ever be the exact same. My favorite modalities are medium to deep tissue and Trigger Point while still having a relaxing Swedish technique.

My goal for every session is to make you feel better than when you came in. Your pain probably didn’t come overnight and it won’t be solved overnight but if you allow me the chance, I would love to see how I can help you to relieve your pain and discomfort. Whether you’re looking for pain relief, relaxation or would like to experience your first massage, I would love to be a part of that experience. Let’s start a new you today!

Jay Walschon

After working 30 years in various careers, including Silicon Valley, Art Director and running my own screen printing business, my doctor told me to change to a less stressful career.

In 1997 I graduated from a massage school in California. In 2004 i moved my practice to Idaho.

I specialize in relaxation, Swedish, deep tissue & prenatal massage. Previously i had worked at the Myofly in Meridian. In 2016 i was offered a position here at the Eagle Myofly location. I had previously worked at a spa in Eagle for 5 years and was excited to come back to the Eagle area.

I have been coaching sports for over 23 years, which has helped with my sports massage. I have worked with professional, collegiate as well as recreational athletes.

Each massage i do can be customized to fit a clients needs. My goal in massage is to have my clients leave feeling better than when they came in.

My free time is spent reading, practicing photography, fishing, bicycling & spending time with my grand daughter.

Naomi Aycock

I am passionate about helping people reach their fullest potential on a physical and emotional level. I believe I can achieve that with massage/bodywork. My favorite style of massage is a comforting Swedish massage. I also offer energy work in the form of Reiki and aromatic healing with essential oils using the aroma touch technique.

I am constantly looking to further my education in bodywork and strive to offer my clients the best thing for their bodies and situation. My approach to healing is quite intuitive. However, I also listen to what you are seeking in a treatment. Every body is beautiful and all are welcome to come and feel their best.

when I'm not massaging, I enjoy working in the yard and love the smells of all the changing seasons. I feel very blessed to live in this beautiful land. Spending time with my family and inventing in the kitchen are some of my free time pleasures.

Audrey Poliskey

I have been a Certified Massage Therapist for 14 years practicing in California. I recently moved to Boise, Idaho and am happy to become part of the team here at Myofly.

I am someone that truly enjoys helping and healing others through the art of massage therapy. 
My style can be described as both relaxing and therapeutic as I combine elements of Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Swedish. 

I can also provide clients with cupping and hotstones.  Other specialty treatments I can provide are Pregnancy Massage and Lymphatic Drainage. 

I enjoy being active and feel that the body and soul are connected.  I strive to eliminate pain and stress from my clients and replace it with relaxation.

Rachele Kershner

Everyday I get to go to work and do what I'm passionate about. I get to help people work through pain, old and new injuries, recover from surgery and even preventative health. With the knowledge I have obtained and the skills I have learned, I get to help people feel better. Not only do I remember each of them for their ailments, kind words, and their stories; I get to meet people who go through transformations. I see people when they are having good and bad days. I am always growing and learning and becoming better so when someone comes to see me, they get the best massage I can offer for their needs. 

I would describe my technique as deep tissue and incorporate trigger point when it's necessary.  If you come to me and ask me to work neck, back and shoulders, that is what you are going to get. When you are uncomfortable with having your feet worked on, I won't go near them. I want you to feel comfortable and listened to. Massage therapy has always been my passion. I graduated from Milan in Boise, Idaho in April 2008 and am lucky to have found my purpose and be able help others.

James Beall

I was born in Salt Lake City and spent most of my life in Utah. I am well traveled, having driven trucks in  the 48 continental states. Several challenges led me into this pathway as a bodyworker.

One of my most difficult challenges was being my mother’s full-time caregiver. She was displaying signs of Alzheimer disease, and needed to be looked after. In the space of three years I learned that it’s possible to love and care for someone who doesn’t know who you are, who doesn’t often appreciate you, and does not have the will or the capacity to express thanks.

I met my wife in Boise and when she was struck with some physical challenges, we spent lots of time with physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and specialists. At home, I found myself rubbing her sore spots, providing temporary relief. My wife decided that I had a healing touch, and suggested I could develop it, as a profession.

I attended Milan Institute Of Massage Therapy in Nampa, Idaho. I passed the MBLEx, and received my license as a Massage Therapist in 2015. My bodywork specialties are Swedish, Deep Tissue, Chair, and Prenatal Massage.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and baby boy.

Jake Seward

I graduated from Everest Institute in Tigard, Oregon in 2011 with 1200 hours of training. I also taught massage therapy at Everest Institute for 5 years. My 1200 hours of training and 4000+ hours of teaching have given me an extensive knowledge of the body and massage therapy.

I have been trained in spa and sports massage and I have been practicing since 2011 with a focus on the treatment side of massage therapy. I have worked all kinds of clients from professional athletes to superhero moms. I specialize in treating chronic pain. I have been able to completely reverse the side effects from injuries over 40 years old and would love to help you escape pain as well.

I am a client focused massage therapist, customizing your session to meet your needs from relaxation to intensely focused treatment work. I was raised by excellent parents who taught me to work hard and help others. My desire to help others is what lead me into the massage field and keeps me passionate about the work I do.

When I'm not massaging I am spending as much time as possible with my wonderful wife and kids going on hikes and other outdoor activities.
