Most people have some level of pain they deal with on a daily basis. Your pain may be caused by an injury, a medical condition such as arthritis, or most commonly, from poor posture and overuse of today’s smartphones and mobile devices.

Mika Brauner, Owner




I was introduced to massage in the ’70s and fell in love with how, for the first time, I felt completely relaxed and pain free. Through the years it has been my honor to help hundreds of people experience a feeling of wellbeing and relief from constant tension and pain. Helping my clients become more aware of what is causing their pain and making the necessary changes to live comfortably is the goal of my practice.

Since graduating from the Florida School of Massage in 1979 I have continued to study with the top massage teachers across the country. I incorporate my degree in Health & Wellness with my extensive experience in neuro-muscular therapy, sports massage, myoskeletal alignment, and therapeutic exercise. My goal is to customize each session to the needs of my clients.

At Metairie Massage Center, I offer a calming and personable atmosphere to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible. I invite you to book an appointment  and let the healing begin.


I have been fortunate to work with incredible athletes, including six time Ironman World Champion, Natasha Badmann:
