IRON MOUNTAIN — Body Alchemy Bodyworks and Massage recently opened in downtown Iron Mountain and joined the Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce, which had a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate.

Owner Codell Story specializes in several different massage modalities, including traditional Swedish massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, prenatal, postpartum, infant/pediatric massage, and end-of-life massage, to name a few. He also is a reiki master and provides energy healing sessions. 

As a massage therapist, he said he has always been intrigued at how the body works, why it hurts and how to ease or alleviate the pain of injury. He found he very much enjoyed helping people relax and feel better and believes massage therapy is a good way to promote relaxation, reduce stress and ease pain. It brings him joy to help people feel better and reach their wellness goals, he said.

After serving in the U.S. Army and deploying to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Story was able to meet diverse individuals in different multicultural experiences. The U.S Army prepared him to become an effective entrepreneur and leader.

Currently there are many issues plaguing not only the civilian sector but also the military — active, reservist and retired — that need to be addressed, Story said, and he is committed to being a part of the solution and recovery in the wellness sector.

Body Alchemy Bodyworks and Massage is open various hours during the week. To schedule an appointment, go to his website at www.bodyalchemybodyworks.com or he can be reached by calling 906-349-1226 or emailing him at bodyalchemybodyworks@gmail.com.

Story’s business is at 415 S. Stephenson Ave. in Iron Mountain.
