"When all of our desires are distilled, we are left to cast just 2 votes - to love more and be happy." ~ Hafiz

When you lie on my massage table you are immediately brought into the present moment.  There is no worrying about the future and no regrets about the past.  The present moment is the only time in which our bodies have to heal, our minds relax, and our spirits to regain energy spent in our day to day lives. I specialize in deep tissue massage and overall stress relief however, I am trained in integrative, swedish, and energy therapies. 
I like to incorporate awareness of breath and some visual... more

Notable Experiences

Yoga
Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga instructor
I am a Chopra Certified Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga instructor. I completed a 200 hour program at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. This yoga is based on the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success written by Dr. Deepak Chopra. There are universal laws that when practiced regularly bring about success, abundance, and true happiness. The SSL of Y teaches you to love yourself exactly as you are.
Coaching
Primordial Soud Meditation Instrutor
I am a Chopra Certified Primordial Sound Meditation Instructor. I received my training at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. Primordial Sound Meditation is based on the date, time and place of your birth. When I am given that information, I find for you your personal sanskrit mantra that vibrates at the same vibration the Earth had at the moment of your birth. Meditation takes you on a journey within to the vastness of the present moment. It is a beautiful tool to help relieve stress and physical pain.

Celine always does just what I need and takes into account specific issues I may have. She adjusts pressure to accommodate sensitive places and has my overall health in mind when she works. I've had many massages sessions of physical therapy and Celine ranks as one of the best masseuses I've ever had. I will definitely see her again!

A skilled practitioner with years of experience. Today she used the first half hour of the massage to have me experience guided imagery and therapeutic touch which facilitated deep relaxation and permitted her to do more effective body work the last half hour of the session. I am seeing significant changes in my ability to manage stress and maintain my health.

Celine met me at the front desk and was immediately friendly yet anxious to assess my needs and goal for that day's massage. She was tuned in to my suggestions and found the knots and tightness in the muscles --- yet kept me relaxed throughout the session. She is very professional and I will return.

Celine is absolutely wonderful! She is very skilled and clearly knows how to do therapeutic bodywork. I have a very bad shoulder and she is able to relieve the pain every time I go in. She has a very kind and gentle demeanor which is great for relaxation and really listens to what you need- Celine really cares. I would recommend her to anyone!!
