  • Stephanie Dreyden
    Massage Therapist

    I grew up on a small farm in Owatonna, MN, where I lived with my two older brothers, horses, cats and a dog. I have always had a passion for working with and helping people, which steered me onto the career path of Massage Therapy. After 15 years in the construction field, I decided it was time to follow that passion and pursue a areer in Massage Therapy.

    I attended St Paul college and graduated with honors from the Massage Therapy program, learning various techniques such as Swedish Massage, Reflexology, Lymph Drainage, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) techniques, deep tissue, and Trigger Point therapy. I currently live on a hobby farm in Nowthen, MN, with my two children, 2 horses, 7 cats and one very large dog.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "They certainly live up to their name! My husband and I have a significant improvement in our quality of life and it is all due to their caring and competent staff. My husband had a work related injury that could have kept him out of work for months or even required surgery, but thanks to all the staff at Back Into Life he was back to work in a month. They always put the customer first and I'm continuously amazed at how efficiently they assess what's wrong and fix it! You truly could not find a better place for chiropractic care."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
