“Treating the physical body without healing the other aspects of self — mental, emotional, spiritual — is like putting a band-aid on a blown tire.” – Edgar Cayce

Antonia NelsonAntonia Nelson is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, and graduated from the Boulder School of Massage Therapy, Colorado, in 1980. She opened her practice in Door County, Wisconsin where she specialized in Myofascial Release Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy and Pain/Trauma Resolution. Antonia has worked in a variety of settings, her private practice, Holistic Chiropractic Office, Physical Therapy Clinic, Massage School, Myofascial Treatment Center, The Center for Veterans Issues, and she also speaks to groups and businesses around the issues of Stress & Trauma Resolution, and Health & Wellness and Resiliency.

Antonia’s Mission is to offer the possibilities of a new relationship, a new conversation about health and well being, for our life and our life mission. When you learn how to listen to your body, and develop a new relationship with it, your life will change! Pain is a doorway, pain is not the place where we are meant to live. We have an opportunity to move through the doorway to discover the root cause behind the pain so that it can be resolved.

For 40 years Antonia has worked primarily on the physical body, around pain/trauma and specializing in Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. 23 years ago came the answer to my prayer, “please God! there has got to be some kind of work that can help people heal permanently, where is it?” 3 months later I was introduced to The Way of the Heart, a way to transform ourselves, our patterns, problems and challenges and deepen our self awareness, intuition so we can be in choice in our lives. The work that allows someone to take that 12” journey from the head to their heart and have a greater sense of purpose and meaning in their lives.

Currently Antonia offers Coaching and Consulting to clients online, by phone and in person.
