  • Salt Space and Halotherapy in Manitowoc, Wisconsin

In 2002 Gina Armstrong created Therapeutic Massage Works LLC and rented one room in the Prigge Insurance Building on Memorial Drive in Two Rivers. It was a modest start with a grand vision to create a wellness center. With continued growth, in 2009, Gina purchased the old "stained glass place" that was built in 1889, a beautiful cream city brick building located on the corner of Buffalo and 10th street and named it Balance on Buffalo.

In May 2012, an intense four-alarm fire required the cleansing, remodeling, and restoration of the historic building, originally built in 1889, prompting Therapeutic Massage Works LLC to temporarily relocate. After eight months of extensive work, Therapeutic Massage Works returned to Balance on Buffalo in January 2013, fully restored and rebuilt.

In 2018 Halotherapy (Salt Therapy) was added. Salt therapy benefits people of all ages and is great for overall wellness, respiratory, and skin.

Over the years Balance on Buffalo has extended into the community with Reiki and Sound Vibration classes offered at UW Manitowoc, UW Sheboygan, UW Fox Valley. Gina Armstrong continues to oversee the massage therapy program at Acuity Insurance in Sheboygan which Gina developed over 20 years ago.

The vision that was created in 2001 has shifted and grown along side of all those that have walked through the doors of Balance on Buffalo. Our goal has always been to offer a safe, nurturing space to encourage all that are seeking, a place to explore a variety of opportunities to grow, learn, heal and transform their lives if they so choose. For those that grace Balance's presence every day and for those that have experienced a glimpse of the heart space that is Balance we give thanks and will be forever grateful for supporting and helping create the Balance on Buffalo that shine's today.
