About the Space

Nature's Essentials isn't your average massage practice. Many are shocked to believe this space was once a green, rundown mobile home. My family and I completely transformed it into a massage practice! While the remodel was under construction, I kept up with my skills by working with family and friends out of my parent's home. In December of 2018, I finally opened my doors! It is very unique massage practice, and I couldn't ask for a more perfect place to begin my career as a massage therapist. Since I work for myself, clients are able to build trust and a strong relationship with me from the very beginning. My goal is to create a space where a clients comfort comes naturally, so we can focus on the benefits of massage therapy. As soon as you walk through the door, the warm and cozy vibe puts you at ease. Book your appointment and come see for yourself!

Anna (Arens) Mattson, Owner & LMT

I graduated from the Institute of Natural Therapies in June 2017. Together, I have brought my business intuition with my wellness knowledge to create a unique environment. I am frequently brainstorming new ideas and advancing my skills and techniques to better my business and the services I provide. I strive to advance and stay up-to-date on my education and specialties of interest to give you the care you deserve!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my dog, Dozer, taking in all the activities each season the U.P. has to offer, traveling, and so much more!
