Clara has always had a passion to help people heal – in mind, body and spirit – which guided her to pursue a career in therapeutic massage. She studied massage therapy at the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville and is furthering her education by pursuing degrees in nutrition and natural medicine. Clara has special training in advanced neuromuscular massage and trigger point therapy, enabling her to specialize in chronic pain management and injury rehabilitation. These skills also enable her to provide a unique massage experience for more common modalities, including Swedish, sports, myofascial and others.
Having grown up in Sacramento, Clara has a love for California and has visited many areas in the Northern and Southern parts of the state. She’s traveled to Upstate New York, Indiana, Las Vegas and other destinations, and plans to travel the world. Clara especially looks forward to extended explorations of Madagascar and Morocco with full cultural and language immersion.
Clara believes healing is not “one-size-fits-all,” and that it’s important for each of us to find our own balance in lifestyle and preventative treatment in order to attain ideal health. In her free time, Clara enjoys reading, exploring new places, practicing yoga and participating in, or experiencing, just about any visual or performing art.
