Massage Therapy

Your host at Jardine Retreat, Zondra Skertich is also a massage therapist. She currently does not have a massage location in Jardine, but has a cozy massage studio just down the hill in Gardiner, about a 15-20 minute drive away. Jardine Retreat guests receive a $5 discount on their massages. 

Zondra has been a massage therapist for fifteen years with experience working with many different people and body types. Her training is diversified with many modalities ranging from Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, Reiki, Reflexology, Hot Stone Therapy, and more. Each massage is a custom treatment blending techniques from multiple modalities to personalize every massage to what each client needs and wants at the time. The relaxing tranquil environment in her Gardiner studio is a perfect place if you just want to relax and unwind, or if you need specific deep tissue and therapeutic work.

Zondra's massage studio is open year round, and conveniently located right on Highway 89 in downtown Gardiner. Hours vary from day to day and massages are available by appointment only. Same day appointments are often available, so please don't hesitate to check with Zondra to see what times are currently being offered. Text messages work the best, but phone calls, Facebook messages, and emails also work. Telepathic messages and smoke signals don't work quite as well, so please plan ahead and remember that phone service and wifi is very limited in Yellowstone.

Originally from Jardine and after many years of world travel and living all over the place, Zondra and her husband chose to settle down in this beautiful part of the world. She enjoys a lifestyle of hiking, skiing, boating and truly enjoying the outdoors. She understands what it's like to be sore and tired from traveling and embarking on adventures and is therefore sympathetic to and enjoys working on people who are sore from hiking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, boating, or even sitting in the car all day. Did you forget to wear enough sunscreen and are now sunburnt, but still need a massage? No problem! Get a lavender/aloe sunburn treatment along with your massage. Please check out her menu for descriptions of the sunburn treatment, hot stone therapy and more.
