Our Mission is to create a space where one can heal and grow. 
The name, "Homestead" was chosen to embody the spirit, strength, and resilience of my grandmother, Margaret Hintz. My Grandmother grew up in Billings, Montana on a Homestead where she raised cattle and survived on very little. This experience inspired her to devote her life to education and helping others in need.  She was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2010 which created severe stiffness. She became my first regular massage client and found a lot of relief from stretching and swedish massage. Her warm heart, her fancy hats,  and smile spoke to everyone who knew her.  Homestead Healing Arts Studio opened it's doors in 2012 shortly after her passing,  as a Community gathering place to honor Margaret's love for holistic medicine.  May we continue to honor our her legacy through sharing her love for holistic healing.
