Greetings!  My name is Santina.  I am a trained and licensed massage therapist with a B.S. in Biology.  I received my certificate in massage therapy from The Soma Institute of Chicago.  My array of experience includes working in multiple settings such as chiropractic and spa facilities, along with assisting in cramp relief for local marathons.  I specialize in Prenatal, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point Release, and Swedish techniques. I first encountered the benefits of massage therapy working as a volunteer therapy aid at Saint Michaels Special Education on the Navajo Reservation.  I became inspired as I noticed significantly how massage therapy aided the student’s physical and cognitive well-being. 

I am very passionate about my career field; I believe that it is my duty to aid client’s relive pain and alleviate stress.  I will perform to the best of my ability and be attentive in our consultation.  Our consultation will assist me in customizing the most optimal treatment plan for you. Together, we can strategize the greatest method to meet your specific health goals.

Absolutely wonderful. I felt as if Santina was saying "Come back, Come for another massage" with her hands. She gives the most relaxing, effective massages ever. It was so great, I purchased 3, 90 minute massages. I typically only purchase 60 minutes.
