salina | massage therapist
Practicing since 2002, Salina’s massage therapy style can be described as blissfully Zen , with a sense of empathy that touches and connects in a way you would expect from a healer. Salina’s foundation is Lomilomi, a part of the Hawaiian ways of healing, learned from Master Daniel Fowler of Maui. Her massages are profoundly relaxing. She also incorporates work from Shiatsu, Bowen, myofascial release and cranial-sacral release to augment your healing session.
Salina understands the impact of aging on the body, especially for women in transition to menopause. She is a big believer that this transition can be done smoothly with the help of massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, energy balancing, meditation, movement therapies, and by learning to be deeply in touch with met and unmet needs and be able to clearly express them.
Moms and moms-to-be will find Salina’s motherly touch to be a haven. Her prenatal clients often remark, “This is the only time I truly get to deeply rest.” Salina has a special interest in helping women desiring a VBAC, as well as postpartum massage. Salina is master at helping you manage scar tissue- whether from surgery, injury or burns, to improve your range of motion and reduce scarring.
Salina also specializes in respiratory function massage, which means she can help you breathe better! This is awesome for anyone who would like to improve their condition affected by respiratory conditions, and for the athlete who wants to improve their stamina.
Self care is important to Salina. She loves how QiGong,Yoga and dancing easily grounds and brings equilibrium to her inner and outer life. She enjoys a fun adventure, traveling and being in nature, and being in the company of caring friends, and likes to toy and test the idea that healing can be instantaneous.
