Juliana Nania, CMT
Juliana has 6 years of experience as a Certified California licensed Massage Therapist, and will soon be completing her training as a Holistic Health Practitioner. Since 2009, she has concentrated her focus on: sports, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and positional release. In addition, Juliana enjoys practicing Cranial Sacral Therapy, pregnancy massage, and lymphatic drainage. Working to rid her clients of chronic or acute pain is what she does best, “My clients find great relief from pain using techniques of John Harris, author of Fix Pain with bare foot deep compressions. This is performed with clients clothed on a mat shiatsu-style. Pressure from the therapist's foot on trigger points for a sustained duration of a minute or more gives great lasting results.” This deep work can often help chronic problems that regular massage therapy cannot achieve. Juliana also believes that showing her clients ways to manage their reoccurring problems will greatly contribute to a pain-free future.
Jeff Yost, CMT
With over 13 years of experience as a massage therapist, Jeff uses a variety of techniques to customize each massage treatment, especially as it pertains to rehabilitation work. Early on, Jeff encountered many injuries and was never happy with the treatment options offered to him by way of traditional doctors. Believing that there was a better way to heal, Jeff began his studies in bodywork, and has been practicing these techniques for over a decade. Through his own recovery from injuries, Jeff was inspired to heal others, “The body is designed to heal itself. I help to promote this within all my clients. I have studied and practiced many modalities of bodywork. I also teach massage training classes. I have a gift for finding the point of the dysfunction, which will get you on the road to fast recovery.” Jeff works holistically, involving the entire body’s health systems, in order to help his clients heal and prevent future damage from occurring. His goal is to get clients back to health. Jeff specializes in: chronic pain, sports injury, repetitive stress injury, limited range of motion, etc.
