Natalia is a certified Ashiatsu Oriental Bar therapist specializing in a fusion of Thai, Indian and Chinese barefoot techniques. This massage is by far one of the most effective forms of bodywork, integrating the use of energy or chi regeneration, while also soothing chronic tension and stress in the body. How does Ashiatsu work? Depending on the location Natalia employs the use of aerial silks and or bars attached to the ceiling for stability. Natii uses these to apply deep compressive force throughout the entire body. This is an excellent massage for anyone looking to experience something new and innovative. Ashi is great for pre/post fitness routines for all body types. Great for chronic tension and tight tense muscles in the upper and low back.

Natalia studied massage therapy in Sunstate Academy and specialized in “Ashi” under mentor and teacher Pilar Hook with DeepFeet Bar Therapy in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida. As an active Ashiatsu practitioner, Natalia strives to facilitate personalized sessions that help you connect, relax, and revitalize.

Ashiatsu 60-90 minute
Natalia offers a deeply therapeutic massage using her hands and feet.

Santiago Gallardo

LMT

Santiago Gallardo - LMT

Santiago’s journey into holistic healing started at the young age of 9 when he started having asthma attacks. As a student of martial arts, his Sensei showed him how to alleviate his symptoms through disciplined breath work and massage. These techniques eventually helped him conquer the illness. Since then, Santiago’s passion has been to share natural healing modalities with others. Graduating 12 years ago as a licensed massage therapist from Cortiva Institute School of Massage Therapy in St Petersburg, FL, Santiago has dedicated his life to sharing and teaching others these benefits. Starting off his career in the spa industry Santiago moved rapidly into the Chiropractic settings. Using techniques from both industries Santiago was able to hone-in to an innovative massage technique that will give you the benefits of both worlds.

“COVID made me realize that I can do more for the community by bringing my services directly to those in need. After taking all the necessary precautions and recommendations from the CDC, I implemented a protocol to alleviate both the mental and physical strain that the pandemic was putting on individuals without them having to leave the safety or comfort of their home.

His services include therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage massage, hot stone massage, reflexology and more.

Anthony Aleman

Sound Healer & AlchemisT

Anthony Aleman

Los Angeles grown with Cuscatlan, El Salvadorian Roots: Anthony has been teaching with, performing with, and making Didgeridoos for over 16 years. He is an advocate for healthy living and self-expression, and practices healthy eating, nature living, community healing, plant medicine, energy work, & meditation!

Anthony’s way of teaching his own practice of health & self-expression is through the Didgeridoo! It has a wide range of applications, including meditative practices and chronic illness support. The resonance of the Didgeridoo enables the listener to ease symptoms of chronic illness and release stored negative energy and emotional stagnation.

How? 

The unique tones of the Didgeridoo allows listeners to effortlessly enter a deep meditative state, activating the delta and theta brain waves: these specific brain waves help us achieve our highest healing potential for both physical and mental health, by re-engaging our mind-body connection.

His company, West Wind Vibes, was born from an inspiration to educate students on the history of the Didgeridoo, and the freedom of self-expression through art, music, and of course, the Didgeridoo!

Anthony offers beginner-advanced level Didgeridoo lessons; along with Infrasound Massage, Didgeridoo Sound Therapy, Instrument repairs, workshops, one-on-one lessons, and custom work!
