Minden is an extraordinary holistic practitioner with great knowledge and skills as a yoga teacher and a massage therapist. The minute I stepped into her space, I felt heard and understood. I knew I was in good hands.


I started off with private yoga session and due to my neck injury and other chronic pain issues - she tailored my session for a more gentle and restorative yoga with assisted stretching. I needed that one-on-one attention and suggestion on poses that would further help my body to heal. By the end of the session, I felt more in tune with my body and more peaceful overall. Then we moved onto a massage session and I have to say I have never had such a luxurious massage before this. It was only a 60 minute session, but felt like 2 hours! My body felt like butter after the session! Her massage technique was nothing I've ever experienced before - she was so attentive, intuitive and her intervals of guided meditation throughout the massage session was truly relaxing & purely transforming!


I plan on seeing her again for meditation and massage sessions and I look forward to it. Do yourself and your body a favor by booking an appointment with Minden! I highly recommend her! She is truly one-of-a-kind!.

Minden is amazing. She really knows what she is doing. I came in with frozen shoulder and came out relaxed, recuperated and with much greater mobility in my shoulder. I highly recommend her.

Minden is a very capable and conscientious professional. She has had a significant impact on my life and I look forward to working with her for many years to come. She is my massage therapist, one of my health advisors, and my friend. I recommend her without qualification.  From the beginning, Minden has worked hard to accommodate my schedule and has made an effort to understand my health issues and my learning style. She provides gentle medically informed nudges...which are very helpful.  Our work together has significantly impacted all of my biometric markers...blood pressure, cholesterol level, A1c level, blood glucose levels, etc.... and, not unimportantly, my mood and energy level. My advice: hire her for three massages and then go from there. Your life will be better for it!

Minden is by far the most thoughtful and knowledgeable massage therapist I've been to. I have neck injuries and chronic pain problems and definitely trust myself in Minden's care. She was especially helpful with my neck and shoulders and created a deeply meditative environment both times I saw her. Would highly recommend.

Minden is truly amazing. She takes her time to understand what the client's needs are and tailors her massage to achieve that goal. She also helps to integrate lifestyle factors and constructive suggestions to help attain wellness. I am a dentist and as a result have chronic strain on my neck and shoulders from working. Minden gets deep under the shoulder blade to try and relieve the stress and damage in that area. I have used dozens of massage therapist before but Minden is by far the most effective.

Minden Barrile is a massage therapist (musician, Yoga teacher, artist) who possesses amazing intuition. In an effort to work on my areas of need she focussed on my shoulders, arms and upper back, yet when I left no muscle felt neglected! She has created a space that one wouldn't mind just sitting in; the moment I walked through the door, I was able to leave the world behind. The entire experience was serene, as is this wonderful practitioner!

Minden gives absolutely amazing massages. She's incredibly talented, and knows just how to relieve tension and stiff muscles. With her help as I was training for a 10K, I managed to run my fastest time ever!

I won't let anyone other than Minden massage me. I turn down massages and have even given massage credits away to family while on trips because a massage that's not with Minden just isn't worth it! What a gifted and loving human; her caring and technical prowess, in the most beautiful blend, contribute to a perfect experience.

Very skilled and knowledgable. I suffered a herniated disc earlier this year and have been doing deep tissue massage as part of recovery. I felt much improved even after one session here. I'll continue to come here!

I highly recommend Creative Wellness Strategies. From the very beginning of online communication to the appointment reminder notice. The process went smoothly.  My masseuse Meghan Bailey LMT, was polite, and easy to communicate with. The effects of the 1hr massage Meghan Bailey gave me, increased into the next day. I was totally surprised and happy. I will not hesitate to use the services of Meghan Bailey/Creative Wellness Strategies again. An added plus is,the office is in a great location with access to public transportation.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend to help him relax after applying to grad school. The massage therapist was extremely attentive to his needs and gave him a great experience. I sat in the waiting room and got to peak into the studio - I immediately thought I needed a turn! Beautiful ambiance and relaxing environment.

Minden is a true healer, with amazing energy and passion. She takes her time to get to know what is bothering me, to make me comfortable, and to educate me on the things I can do outside of her office to improve my health. I had the pleasure of trying out her new sound therapy, which got me into the deepest meditative state I have ever been able to get into. I am an anxious person, but with her energy, her music, and her touch, I feel I am able to completely relax and be in my body. This has been an outstanding healing experience for me, both emotionally and physically as the mind and body are deeply connected. I am more mindful every day because of Minden, and it is easier for me to relax in stressful circumstances, and to make decisions that are good for me.

After trying sound therapy, I tried massage and it was beyond incredible. Minden sends healing energy through her hands. She knows how to balance firmness with gentleness and how to work with the body's needs to leave you feeling the best you have ever felt in your body. Her healing touch, her words, and her energy have improved my life, and I am honored to know Minden. I would recommend her healing practice to anybody.

Minden has a very friendly and calming demeanor, and gave me an amazing Swedish massage. I'm going back, and recommended my boyfriend to her as well. She's excellent!

Working with Minden is always transformative.  I come away from our sessions feeling renewed not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.  Before each session, Minden takes time to explore exactly what is going on with me and tailors her work to my current needs.  In addition, Minden is a pleasure to deal with, always flexible and accommodating.  I feel lucky to work with Minden and recommend her wholeheartedly!

Working with Minden during my pregnancy was both physically and emotionally therapeutic. Not only did Minden alleviate the great physical strain my body experienced from carrying a baby, but she also provided valuable respite from the interminable to-do lists that inevitably accompany baby preparation. Minden enabled my body to tackle the demands of making a new life and allowed my mind to embrace the life changing experience of having my first child.

Quite simply, Minden is the best massage therapist I've ever used.  She is a student of her craft and truly takes the time to understand the needs of her clients.  I always learn something when i visit Minden - sometimes it's about myself.  She's the best.
