Our Massage Therapists

Jordana Arnold, CMT

Jordana's passion for massage became a practice in 1992. Her intuitive bodywork is a blend of conventional massage and vibrational energy work. Her massage sessions are infused with energy work that permeates the physical layers and weaves into the spiritual and emotional fabric of her clients. The use of infused oils with her well seasoned technique, make for a healing encounter. A session with Jordana is a rare opportunity to be nurtured by an artist in a medium that is uniquely her own.

Jordana has maintained a Lawrence, Kansas practice since 1993. She keeps chickens, bees, and a couple of herd dogs at her east Lawrence home. When she is not practicing massage she can be found hiking with scouts or up to her elbows in a renovation project.

Jessica Phoenix, CMT

Jessica's work can be best described as intuitive, integrated, and deeply therapeutic. She incorporates various bodywork techniques and aromas into each session, resulting in a truly unique massage experience. Her strong hands and gentle nature leave clients feeling relaxed and revived.

Jessica discovered massage and its gift of relaxation at an early age. Throughout her life, friends and loved ones have called on her to relieve headaches, stress, and muscle pain. In 2007, Jessica committed herself to massage school, where her passion for the immense beauty and healing benefits of therapeutic massage grew. After years of following her gypsy bliss, Jessica returned to Lawrence in 2012, bringing her intuitive and creative skills to Kaw Valley Massage.

Jessica is also a skilled writer, creative visual artist, and musician. She can often be seen around her hometown of Lawrence, Kansas, escorted by her son and main man, Noah.

Cara Schuster, CMT

Cara began her massage career in 2005 after graduating from The White River School of Massage.
