Meet Your Therapists
While there are several licensed therapists associated with Skylight Massage and Skincare, this page features two of our therapists. Alisa and Marcela have recently teamed up to offer ashiatsu couples massages and classes for therapists and couples wanting to learn both traditional style and Ashi Thai.
No Marcela and Alisa arent a couple, but both are passionate about teaching people about giving couples massage. Thats why youre seeing little hearts in our photos, taken in Marcela’s room beautifully decorated for Valentines Day 😀 Both are dedicated therapists around the clock with unique skill sets that make our services stand out. Below you will get to know each therapist, learn a little about her techniques and classes.
Marcela has over 20 years of massage experience. She has helped numerous women achieve a firm toned mid section with her “Skinny Massage”, a special technique that tones loose skin after weight loss. She promotes proper diet and good nutrition instead of crash diets. Marcela has a firm yet soothing touch which she combines with stretching and hot stones for a deeply relaxing therapeutic experience that lasts.
She also offers continuing education classes for massage therapists as well as a special workshop for couples who want to learn how to give one another a quality therapeutic massage. During this 2 hour long workshop both partners get to enjoy Marcela’s therapeutic touch and then each one takes turns giving and receiving massage under her guidance. She says couples often think of giving a massage as an impossible chore after a long day of work. Instead Marcela suggests that each partner offer one another just a few minutes of quality touch in just a few most needy spots on a regular basis. Touch of a loved one offers amazing healing and communicates affection and connection better than words and material gifts.
Marcela enjoys having a good time, dancing, going on adventures and loves her three children very much 😉
Alisa has over 10 years of massage and bodywork experience. She likes to combine techniques to customize an individualized massage experience. Her favorite modalities include Aerial Ashi Thai, Lomi Lomi and myofascial release. She starts with gentle pressure, warming up each troubled area, gradually sinking deeper, melting the knotted muscle and fascia. She often incorporates shaking, stretching and vibration for deep muscle release and relaxation.
Alisa is now offering workshops for therapists on Aerial Ashi Thai and Ashi Thai For Couples, both developed by her with the help and feedback of her clients:
- Aerial Ashi Thai takes the concept of good body mechanics, innate to Ashiatsu and Thai massage and makes it even that much more comfortable and effective. Aerial allows the therapist more fluidity and access without compromising pressure quality and good body mechanics, so important for massage therapists an body workers to have long and rewarding careers.
- Ashi Thai For Couples utilizes specialized couples massage that allows one practitioner to leverage income by giving two people a customizable massage at the same time! Couples report great pressure and feeling uninterrupted individualized attention during the entire session! What more can you wish for when you’re making happy customers and twice the money 😀
Alisa’s hobbies include hula hooping, aerial yoga and ice skating. She enjoys the outdoors and simple conversations.
