I was drawn to bodywork as a way to help others achieve freedom and self awareness in their own bodies as well as all the physical and physiological benefits of massage. I am passionate about holistic wellness and desire to help others in their journey through chronic pain, stress reduction and healing from injury. I received my degree from The Aveda Institute and have also studied Thai Massage, Cupping Therapy and Traditional Western Herbalism. My sessions are tailored to the clients needs and may include a mix of modalities. Come and join me on our journey towards being our authentic best selves!

Rita - CranioSacral

Craniosacral therapy is a light touch technique that works with bones, muscles, tissues, fascia, and especially the central nervous system. It can bring relaxation, improve stress management, and relieve or shift trauma or pain in the body. Craniosacral therapy is recommended for migraines, headaches, back & neck pain, TMJ problems, chronic pain and fatigue, anxiety, depression, and all types of trauma. This type of body work works well as self-care, preventative care, and complements physical therapy, chiropractic work, other bodywork, or even talk therapy. The session is all clothes on and done on a massage table.

Scheduling 4-6 sessions closer together, such as weekly, will bring the best results. However, if that isn't feasible, or you just want to try it, just doing one or two sessions can also be quite significant. Craniosacral therapy is a relaxing, revitalizing experience which awakens your own self-correcting mechanisms towards healing

Jacqueline - Massage Therapy & Reiki

I studied Russian medical massage along with a handful of other modalities at the Southern California Health Institute in North Hollywood, California in 2011. Since then I have worked in a variety of settings, with most of my experience in chiropractic care, focusing on the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system simultaneously. My main focus is to get people to the point where they feel present in their bodies and create more fluidity in the spine so that they can live their fullest potential. My intentions are to support each person in finding a fusion of techniques that intuitively suit their body's needs for healing.
