Tammy Shaw-Sykes MMT, LMT, CPT

Tammy is the First Master Myoskeletal Therapist in Minnesota and only 1 of 40 in the world as of 2019.

She is also the Founder of Shift Fitness and Massage, a safe place for those wanting the quietness of massage, pain relief of Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy or the activity of dance classes like Salsa.

Tammy’s work in Information Technologies and data entry for 20+ years gives her an understanding of deadlines and high stress in a career you love. Self-care and ergonomics were not something that was well known or stressed then. The result of that was many issues including chronic back pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, numbness in hands, constant pain in one hand, tendonitis and lack of sleep with the final diagnosis of Fibromyalgia only to be added with arthritis in both knees due to a car accident.

As a “Recovering Couch Potato” Tammy brings a quest for knowledge and understanding with wanting to educate her clients with hope, results, and safer functional movements. She supports those that run on the streets, plays soccer outdoors and in, goes to the gym but also provides a place of support for low impact movements such as dance and yoga. She teaches East Coast Swing Lessons, Yoga, Latin Dance and Personal Training one on one and small group training. She can also be found attending dance classes in addition to dancing in community and playing Wallyball several times a week.

She share her studio with experienced teachers that teach GROOVE Movement and Salsa (Cuban Style)
