Massage Therapists I’d Recommend
While I am sad to be closing my practice, I’m excited to connect you with these other great therapists in the area. Here are some of the therapists I’d recommend in no particular order:
Clay Van Schoyck of Empower Massage
Clay has lived in San Luis Obispo for around 30 years, and has been practicing massage therapy for over 5 of them. Empower Massage Therapy is born out of a strong desire to serve and help others.
His desire is not only to help those in need through massage but introduce the full range of movement/health the human body is capable of achieving.
Empower Massage Therapy offers intelligent bodywork to every body. Clay’s mission is to help people get back to doing what they love. He believes each person is a unique individual, and each person’s pain, tension, or impediment has a unique story requiring individualized care.
Nicole Miller of Balanced Body
Nicole has been working on perfecting her massage since becoming a massage therapist back in 2004. We all need a therapeutic massage to get those pesky knots out, yet we want to relax at the same time and drift into another world. Nicole feels she has found that perfect balance. She went to school in Palo Alto CA at The Body Therapy Center and studied/practiced massage there for about two years. Her instructors were dedicated to their work which really came through when teaching their classes. Nicole started her first massage job in 2004 right after her basic massage training. From there she worked at several other full service spas, health clubs and boutique hotels. It wasn’t until Nicole moved to San Luis Obispo that she decided to open her own business. Nicole truly loves what she does and can’t wait to be a part of your wellness program.
Eunice Lee of Youu-Ness
Eunice has been practicing massage therapy for 15 years and specializes in ART® (Active Release Technique) and Sports Massage. Her journey began when, as a young aspiring concert pianist, she developed a repetitive strain hand injury and was successfully treated by a talented team of practitioners. This experience introduced Eunice to the field of bodywork and she was inspired to complete a 750 hour massage therapy program in Chicago in 2004.
Eunice is passionate about advancing her knowledge and skills and has acquired full body certification in ART® (Active Release Technique) and advanced training in Nerve Entrapment. She is certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and has studied methods of Structural Integration, Orthopedic Massage, and Sports Massage, and is currently studying Feldenkrais. Eunice is also a Board-Certified Music Therapist and has a Masters Degree in Music from Northwestern University. She has a unique interest in blending her background in the performing arts and bodywork to treat injured musicians.
Eunice is passionate about customizing sessions to meet anyone who walks through the door whether an avid gardener, orchestral musician, computer worker, or athlete. She has a strong interest in injury prevention and pain management and enjoys providing high quality bodywork and massage therapy in San Luis Obispo County.
