Your massage therapist

Licensed massage therapist and M.A. Ida Mauko

Even though I’ve got a Master’s degree in English linguistics and have even studied for a doctorate, I only found my life’s calling in 2018, when I started my massage therapy studies at Ammattiopisto Live. The human musculoskeletal system amazes me, and I am thrilled that through my work, I can relieve people’s stress, tightness and pain. I trula believe that massage is an incredibly powerful way of improving people’'s overall physical and mental wellbeing, though it is sorely underused.

I have slowly been losing my eyesight due to a progressive disease, and though this has caused my life to gradually become more difficult, it is this same disability that has helped me become a better massage therapist! I’m also a language nerd, friend of animals (and a dog mom), I practice yoga and I love to sing and travel. I speak English, Finnish, Croatian, more or less also Swedish, German, Italian and Spanish.

Welcome and see you soon! 😋
