To ensure the health and safety of our staff, as well as all the clients in the studio, we are requiring the following:
- If you are not feeling well or have a temperature in excess of 99°F, please cancel your appointment before the 24 hour notice or as soon as symptoms arise.
- You have the option to mask during your session. If you request that your therapist do so, they will mask as well.
We reserve the right to discontinue service with any client who appears to be exhibiting symptoms of illness before or during a session. We respect how you may feel about this and other measures we are taking. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy. We kindly ask for your understanding and cooperation while we navigate this together.
What We're About as a Healing Organization
No matter how much you enjoy what you do, there are still stresses in everyday life that take a toll on your mind and body. Massage Therapy can help reverse the damage done by this stress, and do it drug-free. Massage does more than just relax your mind and relieve tired muscles; it restores function and allows you to do more without NSAIDs or other medications.
At Radiant Healing, you can expect a warm greeting, a comfortable environment, and a customized session focused on your immediate needs. Prior to the session, we’ll discuss your current health conditions, areas of stress and pain, and concerns you may have so that you can receive the maximum physical and emotional benefit every time. Check out our various practice modalities here.
Who We Are
If the last couple of years has taught us anything, it is that we are all connected; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We can’t look away from these events, but we do have the opportunity to take a stance on what we believe, and who we will be in this new space. So, in one small aspect of who we are and the beliefs that we hold true, we want to state the following as concerns you, our client.
This does not represent a new position for any of us. It is merely stating out loud and publicly what we believe and how we welcome and serve our clients every day. Think of a time when you did not feel welcome. You will not feel that here at Radiant Healing. We hold ourselves to a standard that is inclusive of everyone who walks through our door, and there are no barriers to anyone based on sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, or physical characteristics. Some refer to this as being LGBTQ-Friendly. We are, and we also call it HUMAN-Friendly.
Any suggestions or treatment that we may give you are based solely, in our professional opinion, on what serves your needs best. We encourage dialogue between you, the client, and us, the practitioners. We will explain everything about our treatment process and why we suggest a course of therapy or treat your body in a specific way. So come on in and let us serve you in a way that does your mind and body good, and makes your day-to-day life a little easier.
How We Do It
It’s rare that a company talks about their behind-the-scenes operations, either because it would be boring to customers, or they want to protect trade secrets. We think there are certain things that you should know about our operations and how it can impact your well-being.
We use free and clear laundry products to wash, sanitize, and dry all of our practice linens, which includes massage table sheets, face cradle covers, towels, and other items. Anything that may contact bare skin is carefully handled using hypoallergenic soaps, cleaners, and treatments.
All of our therapeutic products such as massage oils, creams, and lotions are also natural, hypoallergenic, and pure. When we use essential oils for therapy, they are always 100% therapeutic grade.
Your safety and comfort, and that of our therapist team, is always our highest concern. You can rely on us to keep your best interests at heart. If you should ever have any questions about our products, procedures, or facility, please talk to us.

About Our Staff
Lara Pfeffer, LMT, Owner
I am a 1994 graduate of Blue Sky Massage School. With over 28 years doing my favorite job ever (massage), I am proud to represent my company where we are privileged to serve our clients in a friendly, supportive, and compassionate atmosphere. It’s my goal that every therapist on staff, while having their own gifts and talents for bodywork, embody our motto: “Massage is our passion, caring is our specialty.” I mentor, coach, teach and inspire my diverse staff of kind, talented and skilled Licensed Massage Therapist practitioners. While I am no longer accepting new clients, my practice has included intuitive bodywork that has woven into it a combination of Neuromuscular Therapy, Prenatal/Postnatal, Swedish flow, Myofascial Release, as well as Reiki holistic healing sessions. In my free time I enjoy my kids and grandkids, being outdoors hiking/biking with friends and traveling the world.
Are you a therapist looking for your next opportunity? Check out our careers HERE.
I am a graduate of Wisc School of Massage Therapy (WSMT). My passion is in helping people reach their ultimate sense of well-being with massage, fitness and living life to the fullest. I excel at providing a truly customized experience with Swedish massage for general relaxation and stress relief, through deeper pressure work for sports injuries/overuse for those great therapeutic benefits. My experience in different areas of fitness and my passion for hiking and bicycling, as well as playing with my pets, keeps me moving. When I’m not taking care of clients, I’m spending time traveling with my fiancee and our pets.
I graduated from Wisconsin School of Massage Therapy in 2021. I love the field of massage! I enjoy using relaxing modalities along with therapeutic techniques such as Trigger Point (site-specific to the issue) and deep tissue where needed, to release tension and pain. I am eager to connect with clients and help them to enjoy life with more ease in body, mind and spirit. I am always willing to learn and grow. When I’m not massaging my valued clientele, I enjoy time with my family and friends.
I am a graduate of Aveda’s Institute of Beauty and Wellness in Milwaukee. Swedish relaxation massage is my specialty. I excel at relaxing clients with my slow flow, while working out their various tension areas in their tissues using light-medium pressure. I enjoy using deeper pressure in focus areas when needed. When I’m not giving love and attention to my clients, I like to crochet, read tarot cards and spend time with my fiance and our cats.
I graduated from Wisconsin School of Massage Therapy. I specialize in both relaxing the stress away and addressing painful areas for my clients. I enjoy lymphatic & prenatal massage as well as therapeutic techniques such as Trigger Point and deep tissue for my clients to have more ease and less stress. I am a former collegiate swimmer and know what it takes to have your body perform at it’s best. In my free time, I enjoy time with my family and friends.
I graduated in 2015 from the Soma Institute for Clinical Massage Therapy after leaving Elmhurst University as a classical voice student. I’ve worked alongside medical professionals, honing my skills as a pain relief specialist. I enjoy taking on client’s issues and putting them in a state of bliss with an emphasis on whole person healing, pain relief and improving functions of the body with a relaxing flow into therapeutic and deep tissue techniques. In my free time I enjoy podcasts & books, Pilates, playing games around the table with family and friends, collecting crystals and exploring the city. I recently moved to Milwaukee with my fiancé Eric and our cat Suzy.
I am a graduate of East-West Healing Arts Institute in Shorewood. I am also a UW-Whitewater graduate. Along with being passionate about the healing that massage can bring my clients, I enjoy being a diving coach for high school athletes. As a former diver, I understand the sports-minded client. I help my clients achieve a good balance in body and mind, while providing a holistic focus and customized experience. I especially enjoy providing various therapeutic techniques including acupressure, cupping & gua sha for tension relief and stress reduction. My goal is to have every client feel relaxed and re-energized after each session. I have a passion for sports and spending time outside with family and friends. Pursuing further education in the healing arts is an ongoing goal, as I look to serve my clients for years to come.
Deep Tissue Massage
Lymphatic massage addresses the lymphatic system, an important part of the immune system. This treatment uses very light, slow, rhythmic movements to increase flow of lymphatic fluid along the lymphatic channels through the entire body. It is highly effective in reducing inflammation, especially after surgery or trauma, such as a sports injury. It can also help stimulate the immune response when recovering from an illness or when struggling with seasonal changes.
Lymphatic treatments can be helpful when treating inflammation, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and Lyme disease. Our intention is to gently encourage healthy lymph flow in otherwise healthy clients. We are not certified in lymphatic drainage for cancer, BBL or plastic surgery procedures. If you are currently under a doctor’s care, please first consult your provider for guidance or referral to a practitioner suitable to your medical needs.

Highlights of Our Client Reviews
"I have been getting massages around town for 30 years....
… and I have to say, this was one of the best I’ve ever had. This is NO ‘cookie cutter’ salon. I had Lara as my MT and she was very thorough. She explained why they include the basalt stones in their massages (I’ll let you go and find out for yourself) as well as her background and training. You can also upgrade and get an essential oil, of your choice, added to their lotion (which is rich and creamy) for an extra “boost” to your experience. I was lucky enough to meet a few of the staff and I am excited for my next appointment! This is a quant place located in historic downtown Greendale (they also have a location downtown). They are very accommodating with schedules and match you with the right therapist for what you need. Treat your body to a GREAT massage and relax the way we need to, so that we can continue our hectic lives, you wont be disappointed!

"Love the location! The studio is very clean...
…and has a very welcoming decor. I felt extremely comfortable with their COVID readiness. The therapy room itself was exceptionally relaxing and set the perfect environment for a wonderfully relaxing session. This was my first appointment with Kayla. She was absolutely fantastic! I had serious knots in my upper back and shoulders. I am used to very forceful deep tissue massage to address these trigger points. Kayla addressed them perfectly! She was able to identify and isolate the knots, then took the time and effort necessary to get them to release. She does a wonderful job identifying trigger points and focuses on those areas, getting them to release. I came in tense with serious pain in the neck and shoulders and left feeling great! I will definitely be booking with her again!”
