Damiana’s fascination with the body as the abode of spirit and as an instrument and reflection of the mind has defined her exploration and keen interest in the healing and creative arts, meditation and yoga. She has practiced bodywork since 2005 when completing the Holistic Health/Massage Certification Program at the University of California Santa Cruz. Her yoga practice for the past 10 years and careful study of the therapeutic principles of alignment informs her work. In her sessions Damiana weaves swedish and deep tissue techniques, myofascial release, and accupressure/energy work to provide a nurturing, deeply restoring and effective session.Damiana’s passion is working with pregnant and postpartum women. This began with a desire to offer relief, comfort and healing care during this challenging and most beautiful time in a woman’s life. The experience of giving and receiving bodywork is, in her eyes, not only therapeutic but a way of celebrating and enhancing the gift of embodiment.
