The Blackbird Family

Who We Are & How We Can Help

Andrea Hakanson

Owner, LMT, Reiki Master/Teacher,

Spiritual Mentor

Welcome! I'm so glad you found us. I created Blackbird Blessings to be a safe and comfortable place for people to release and heal their stress, trauma, pain, and patterns that no longer serve them.  

I've been a licensed massage therapist since 2013, a Reiki practitioner since 2007, and a highly sensitive and intuitive person my whole life.

I love working with clients who want to heal...physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe in finding the root of the imbalance and I'm honored with your trust on this journey.

Hi! I am passionate about holistic healing and approach my treatments with thoughtfulness and compassion. I've been trained in Asian Bodywork, Thai Yoga Massage, Energy Therapy, Ayurvedic Bodywork, Craniosacral Therapy, Reflexology, and Aromatherapy. I blend eastern and western modalities so together we can work together to help you heal, grow and tap into your higher purpose. You can live a life without pain and suffering. We will work together to accomplish your goals and help you become your truest self. 


Marliese Kitchel-Morse

LMT & Reiki Practitioner

Hello! I'm Marliese. There is no greater reward than watching a client walk out of the office feeling better than they did when they walked in. Whether you're dealing with chronic stress, an injury, recent surgery, or are trying to avoid surgery, I approach each treatment with a plan. I enjoy focused work that needs a specific goal and use a variety of techniques to achieve that. Let's get you feeling your best!

Rebecca Payne, LMT

LMT,  Reiki Master/Teacher

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am happy to help you. I first got into massage though being an esthetician doing facials when my clients would tell me I have an amazing touch and that I should do massage! I enjoyed it as well so I got the license, and have been doing massage for 9 years now. I am also a Reiki Master, and have a true gift for relaxing people. I find it's important to create an emotionally and physically safe environment in order for that deep relaxation and releasement to occur, so I always strive to make sure my clients are super comfortable.
