Misty Connella, LMT
Balanced Body Specialist

A little bit about Misty

After getting certified through the University of Alaska in May of 2004, Misty immediately went  into the medical massages field. Starting her practice in a Chiropractic office, she assisted clients recovering from auto, sports, and work related injuries. Misty soon traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2005 where she enjoyed a multicultural setting while supporting the spirit of aloha. There she found herself in a Spa atmosphere, where she could still provide her clients with therapeutic massage, while expanding into relaxation and spa techniques.

Her desire to be closer to family and nature, along with enjoying four seasons, drew her to North Idaho in 2007. She soon fell in love with North Idaho and has no plans to leave any time soon. She is happily married to her husband of 18 years, has 3 children, a dog and a cat. She enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, knitting, music, gardening, micro brews, wine, finding natural healing through food, exercise and self-care.

A little bit about Jesse

Jesse is a family man who has been married to his wife Misty for 18 years. He has 3 wonderful children and a few pets. He graduated college with a B.A. in Theology. Jesse served in the ministry for 10 years. From there he moved to the trades and then worked for 5 years within the manufacturing industry as a planner / safety coordinator. Jesse is currently a balanced body consultant with Equilibrium Massage Therapy LLC. He has learned the value of massage from his wife who is his business partner and massage therapist. All it took was one shoulder injury from playing too much softball to put him on the table for some therapy. A few sessions later and he had full range of motion. That was the ah ha moment that helped him realize the value of massage.
