I bring experience and knowledge in Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Sports, Myofascial Release, Trigger-point, Hot stone, Pregnancy and Reflexology.

Massage is a Healing Loving Art~ I have had a goal and major interest involving Healing and Care for people ever since I can remember. My field of vision and education has ranged from childcare, to educating, to counseling. I think Massage reaches further through the people I come into contact with now than if I had chosen a more narrow approach to Care than this Beautiful Hands-on Experience of Life.
I am broadly trained with over 730 hours from National Holistic Institute (NHI) and Teaching Clinic in Emeryville, CA, 2007. I have received acknowledgments as both a Graduate with Honors, Top of my Class, and having served 100 hours in NHI's Graduate Teaching Assistant Program ~ you definitely learn more by helping others!
My style generally combines Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial techniques and Hydrotherapy. In addition to these modalities, I also offer Pregnancy, Hot Stone, and add in touches of a "Foot technique," Shiatsu, and Thai massage elements; customized to your needs. I have been known to be energizing and chatty as well as nurturing, peaceful and balancing. I am certified by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC), and have a Professional membership with the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP).
In my spare time, I enjoy reading intricately detailed novels of interesting character and personality, swimming, health/naturopathic/homeopathic topics to apply to our every day living, sleep, and laughter!!

My mother was my motivation. She'd have me massage her after long days at the office and would always return the favor in an effort to teach me the importance of self maintenance. In exercising that value I would visit local spas and found that no one could give a great massage like mom did.
Curious about how the body worked and what it would take to give a great massage, I enrolled in the National Holistic Institute and graduated in January 2010 with 720 hours training in modalities ranging from Swedish to Sports Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Shiatsu and more. My mission is to combine all of the techniques I've learned in ways that individually fit my clients needs, with the same focus, compassion, and loving energy my mother gave me, to bring healing, relief of stress, and overall relaxation. I am certified by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) and insured under the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

A well-organized intake session sets up the foundation of a successful therapist/client relationship. Each client has different needs, thus different approach should be utilized. I received my massage training from De Anza College and Skyline College. I am certified by the CA Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC). I have been trained in techniques from relaxation to deep tissue. I believe a good massage session should integrate with different modalities such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger-Point release, Joint Mobilization, Reflexology and Energy Work. However, customization based on client’s needs remains the real key.
I look forward in working with all of you.

Janine Johnson, CMP #19842
My training began as a child, when I would work on my mother every night. Trying to learn how to have enough strength to un-knot her muscles as a young child, I learned to use many parts of my body as tools. In 2001 I enrolled at Santa Barbara School of Massage where I learned Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Swedish, Sports and Peri-natal massage. I have also attended focused workshops for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome & Sciatica. I studied Sports Medicine at West Valley College which helped immensely with my work in the Physical Therapy arena dealing with injuries of all kinds. Working at Redwood Massage and Sauna is a pleasure as Beverly allows us to use our individual skills and intuition to help heal the clients and keep them coming back for excellent care!
Beverly May, CMT #1
After more than 30 years as a Massage Therapist, deciding where to begin a profile is a challenge. My clients tell me that they love that I really care about people and that after all these years, I still love my work. They appreciate that I am always learning more and if I don’t know an answer, will try to find it. They recognize that I live an active and healthy lifestyle, as much to continue to have the strength and endurance for my work as to educate my clients through my own quest for health and well being. My training includes everything from postural analysis and education to work with releasing deep and superficial layers of tissue to Asian approaches of energy balancing. Once I know what a clients’ goals are, I choose an approach consistent with meeting those goals. I am certified by the CA. Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) and in fact am Chairman of the Board of CAMTC and hold Certification #1.
Jackie Kuan, CMT #36019
Since I was a kid, I always had strong hands. I realized that having strong hands is a gift, and the combination of it plus a caring attitude and good body mechanics results in a great massage. I started this journey in 2010 at Skyline College taking all classes that involved body work and I learned to respect the body as a canvas. I believe that learning to work with the human body and help people is the best experience that I have had.
I am a person who is dedicated to providing quality therapeutic massage and educating people on over all wellness. I have strong knowledge of deep tissue and swedish massage, hot stone , stretching and ROM, sports massage, and spa services.
I think that working with a client is a unique experience, and if you allow me to work with you I will customize the massage combining different techniques.
Yevgeniya (Genia) Ivanova, CMT #38507
I began my training at National Holistic Institute in 2010, although I have considered myself to be a bodyworker for as long as I can remember. It's amazing work, magical even. I am truly in love with this profession. I incorporate various massage techniques in my sessions to fit clients' specific needs, bringing the body, mind and spirit into alignment and balance. I specialize in deep tissue and light relaxation muscle work, acupressure, shiatsu as well as prenatal and pediatric nurturing touch massage. I am certified by the CA. Massage Therapy Council.
Nadia Afshar, CMT #37085
Not all massage is created equal.
My philosophy towards bodywork is to allow the mind and body to return to its natural state of harmony and balance.
My massage style is customizing massage treatments by blending several modalities into one therapeutic healing and relaxing experience – combining the soothing interconnected strokes of Swedish with Shiatsu-style Acupressure to release body tension.
