No Knots Professional Massage & Bodywork has been providing quality massage services to our clients since December of 2001. We are proud to have celebrated our ten year anniversary by opening a new location in downtown St.Paul Park. We are blessed to have many clients, family members and friends by our side to share this second beginning with us.
With the “Rejenniration Location” open, we can now offer more appointment times for our clients! We invite you to open your Body, Mind and Soul up to our Massage Therapist, Jennifer, as she helps you journey into relaxation and let go of your stresses. If you are looking for a new experience or need some extra healing, schedule a session with our Reiki Master, Nicole! You are welcome to continue your relaxation in the Meditation room after the massage, where you can take a little extra time to regain your senses before getting in your car for your trip back home. You can also enjoy a cup of tea, cocoa, apple cider or a bottle of water while you come back into your body.
Our goal is not only to help clear the body of unwanted muscle tension but to help you release your stress in a relaxing environment and send you on your way feeling relaxed and calm. We will give you tools, such as stretches, meditations, aromatherapy or acupressure points, to continue the relaxation in between treatments.
“No Knot’s too big, No Knot’s too small. You can count on No Knots to get them all!”
About Our Staff
Jennifer N. Bierma CMT
Jennifer N. Bierma is a Certified Massage Therapist and the owner of No Knots Professional Massage & Bodywork, Inc. She has been in business since 2001, caring for clients ranging in age from new born to 102 years old. Massage is her passion and it shows. Clients come to her for massage but often leave saying that they received so much more. Jennifer is fully present with her clients during each session. This means that she takes time with each client to ensure that their body is getting the treatment that it needs. This includes a health history intake and a Reiki energetic scan at the beginning of your session along with attention to all of the small and large muscle groups in the body, a brief overview after the session of what she found and a little bit of information on self care to help keep you in tip top shape after your treatment.
She is a 3rd degree/advance Reiki practitioner, a certified emergency response massage therapist and is currently working toward her certification in both Craniosacral and Myofascial release techiniques. She graduated with Honors from the Minnesota School of Health Sciences (MSHS) in 2001 with a Massage Therapy Certification.
Her training at MSHS included:
- Swedish massage
- Pregnancy massage
- Deep Tissue massage
- Sports massage
- Geriatric massage
- Infant massage
- Trigger Point therapy
- Integrated massage techniques
- Esalen Massage
- Basic Reflexology
Wanting to help her clients more, Jennifer went back to school and received a license in 2008, from the Minnesota School of Cosmetology, as a Nail Technologist. She now uses this knowledge to education her clients on proper self care techniques for medical issues as well as what to expect from foot care specialists.
Jennifer is committed to the well-being of everyone around her and it shows through her dedication to the community. Her current community volunteer positions include:
- Past President & current Secretary of the New-Park Lions Club

Nicole Haapala- Reiki Master Practitioner
Nicole is the newest member of the No Knots staff. Nicole’s primary role at the office is as Jennifer’s clerical assistant but she is an intuitive practitioner as well. She recently received her certification as a Master Reiki Energy Work Practitioner and will now be offering Energetic services out of the No Knots office as well.
Nicole’s knowledge of holistic therapies reaches passed her passion for Reiki and is illustrated in her interest for healing stones and crystal therapies. While she does not consider herself an expert in the area of crystals and stones, she is extremely knowledgeable in how to use them effectively within healing and meditation practices. She understands the great benefit to anyone who is wearing or holding particular stones/crystals and can help advise people in their stone/crystal choices to help speed up emotional, physical and spiritual healing.
Not only is Nicole a perfect fit for No Knots in that she has a passion for helping people through intuitive holistic bodywork, she has a history in the service industry. Nicole has been a licensed cosmetologist for 9 years and has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and serve people from all walks of life.
We are blessed to have her on our staff and are certain that her presence in the office lends to the calming environment that we strive for.
Team Members & Vendors
Andrea Wagenman, CranioSacral Therapist
(Andrea runs her business within the No Knots office and is part of our care team but not an employee of No Knots.)
After watching her own children struggle with issues such as ADHD and high anxiety, Andrea sought out ways to manage and surpass their issues without the use of medications. This search led her to a technique called CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and her certification in said technique.
Seeing the amazing strides that her children made in their health after receiving treatment, Andrea decided to branch out to the general public as a CranioSacral Therapist. She now successfully treats many of the problems that we face as human beings; acute and chronic pain disease, concussions, headaches and migraines, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.), insomnia, pregnancy pain and discomfort, colic and she even tackles issues related to overcoming limiting beliefs, in both personal and professional arenas.
CST is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the cranial rhythms that run through the entire body. Both physical and emotional injuries can block these rhythms and put our bodies into an inflammatory and disconnected whirlwind. Many people have seen complex, complete changes after just one session. Others peel back the discord, one layer at a time.
Andrea has been a CranioSacral Therapist since 2011 and currently runs her business out of the No Knots Professional Massage & Bodywork, Inc. location in St.Paul Park. She is a local girl who grew up in South St.Paul. In 1997 she moved to Cottage Grove with her husband and three amazing daughters. Andrea has not always been the picture of health that she is today. Like many of us, Andrea struggled with her weight and the health concerns that come with that. Her own journey and her struggles along the way translate to a level of care and compassion for her clients that far surpasses the expectations of those that visit her for the first time. That experience and her experience with her own children’s health struggles has given her a unique view of what life can be like without proper care.
As Andrea says, “We are bound only by ourselves. Unlock your true potential!”
No Knots Professional Massage and Bodywork, Inc. provides a professional quality massage and personable service to each client with a focus on customization for their specific needs.
