About Us

Rhea Healing Essentials is co-owned by soul-sisters Sheila Kunkel and Janna Bishop. Janna and Sheila shared their childhood growing up in Hawaii and have been the best of friends ever since. Both women moved to Seattle, Washington in the ’90s where they found their passion for natural health. Over the years, Janna and Sheila have cultivated their passion and learned the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection. With their love for natural health and a strong desire to serve the community, the women decided to follow their calling, so they opened a community wellness center that not only treats the client, but provides resources for people to live healthier. Together, with their fabulous team of practitioners, Janna and Sheila are able to make their dream of bringing natural wellness resources to the community!

Irene, LMP

Irene's Schedule:Wednesday 3:00 pm – 9:00 pmFriday 3:00 pm – 9:00 pmSaturday 10:30 am – 4:30 pm “What I love most about massage is witnessing someone connect to their body in new and in deeper ways. It takes courage and vulnerability to dive into ourselves, to really acknowledge where we are at, to let go of the habits and the past that no longer serve us, and to support and love ourselves on our healing journeys. I am so grateful that I get to be a part of that! The beauty of massage is that it is beneficial for anyone no matter where they are in their journey. I meet my clients wherever they are at and provide caring and skilled touch according to their needs and comfort level. My goal with every client is to empower them with open communication and to provide a safe and relaxed space to unwind. The rest is listening to the tissue and helping it release. The main modalities I use are Swedish massage, neuromuscular techniques, and facial unwinding. I am also trained in sports massage, pre and post-natal massage, and lymphatic facilitation.” MA60806116
