Ayano Nixon

Massage Therapist. Powerful Brilliance Shaman.

I learned how powerful the art of relaxation can be through my practice of the Chinese moving meditation, tai chi, for more than 25 years.

My personal training program at Saint Paul College included a massage therapy certificate. I soon discovered that the slow, flowing, movement of tai chi resonates with the natural rhythms of our bodies.

I learned how powerful the art of relaxation can be through my practice of the Chinese moving meditation, tai chi, for more than 25 years.

My personal training program at Saint Paul College included a massage therapy certificate. I soon discovered that the slow, flowing, movement of tai chi resonates with the natural rhythms of our bodies.

Combining that movement with Swedish, or relaxation massage, and deep tissue massage, which involves deeper and more focused pressure on muscles and fascia, I am having great success in facilitating relaxation for my clients.

Relaxation relieves stress,the prime catalyst for disease. Relaxation improves digestion and releases muscle tension, the cause of headaches and low back pain, as well as shoulder and neck pain and immobility.

When I am not working, I enjoy being with friends, drawing, writing, reading and playing music. I love my work as a massage therapist. I am also a happy personal trainer, specializing in training clients on the Pilates reformer, in yoga and tai chi.

Before each session, Ayano spends time to learn about any aches, muscle tension, or pains and then customizes the massage to address my concerns. I go to her regularly as part of my health practice and the investment is well worth it! I highly recommend Ayano. Lisa H.
