WORTHINGON — Worthington native Nicole Kremer has re-opened Worthington Massage & Wellness in a new location, occupying the space in the rear of Laundry on 10th.
Kremer's first endeavor was open from 2011-2016 before she moved to the Twin Cities for a change of pace. Now that Kremer's son, Talan, is older, she wanted to come home.
"I was ready to be closer to family," she said. Talan now gets to have his grandparents and great-grandparents cheer him on at his hockey games.
When Kremer opened Nov. 4, she said she was immediately inundated with community and client support.
"I was crying happy tears last week going, 'This is what I'm supposed to be doing,'" Kremer said.
Kremer's massage practice focuses on deep tissue and trigger-point therapy. She also teaches clients techniques to care for themselves, such as stretches and dietary habits.
"I can't stress water enough," said Kremer, noting that she always encourages clients to drink enough water so the body can flush out toxins.
"I have a passion for helping people," she continued, adding that's what drew her to massage therapy and motivated her to become licensed. She noted that massage is not just for sore muscles, but can help with a host of wellness outcomes such as digestion and sleep fatigue.
Kremer said she's excited to have found such a wonderful location for her business.
"The Thiers are such great business people in town," she said, explaining that she's delighted to be renting their recently renovated space and thankful for her business association with them.
In addition to the prime 10th Street locale, "it's so beautiful back here," Kremer added. She has decorated the space simply to invite a peaceful environment for clients.
Kremer is available by appointment only and usually operates between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. To make an appointment, clients may call or text Kremer at (507) 329-5164. She added that it's best to enter her office via Laundry on 10th, where there's access through the glass doors at the back.
