Marina was absolutely fantastic. I have had MANY massages over the years, and no one has ever done a deep tissue massage so thoroughly. She is highly skilled. I have numerous musculoskeletal issues, and see a chiropractor and physical therapist weekly. Marina was able to do more to help me in one 90-minute session than my chiropractor and physical therapist have in years.
Where have you lived? I have always lived in SoCal, but travel to Japan every year to visit family
Where have you traveled to? Japan, England, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand and Fiji
What is your dream vacation? I would love to visit Pompeii in Italy. My mom has always wanted to go and I would love to take her there.
Do you have any special training or favorite modalities? I am currently studying master clinical aromatherapy and would like to further my education in energy work (i.e. reiki).
I became a massage therapist because...I love to help people and I love holistic therapies that can naturally heal people who may be suffering mentally and/or physically. What really stood out to me was how massage helped mental illnesses and elderly clients.
In my other life (before I found massage) I was a...Musician. I love to play the guitar and make music
Pick one word to describe you: All you need is...LOVE!
