About Us

Ohana Therapeutic Massage in Hibbing, MN was founded in 2012 by Paula VanBaalen with the vision of creating a massage experience that heals both the body and mind. Her goal was to offer a regenerating pause from the pressures of everyday life while taking into consideration your busy lifestyle.

Ohana Therapeutic Massage in Hibbing, MN originated as a one-person operation in the back room of a hair salon. Paula soon realized the Iron Range’s need for therapeutic massage was greater than she could provide on her own. In December of 2014, she expanded her practice to a multi-therapist massage clinic with its own Howard Street location. The rest is -as they say- history.

Today, we have two expert pain and stress relief specialists on staff. Each has a unique style and speciality for helping you get out of pain and back to the life you love. We currently offer the following services: Therapeutic Massage (including deep tissue massage, sports massage and trigger point therapy), Pregnancy MassageMyofascial Release (JBMFR), and AromaTouch technique.
