Virginia is a CA licensed massage therapist and graduate of the McKinnon School of Massage. After receiving her massage certification she went on to become a CA licensed physical therapy assistant which she practiced for 20 years treating patients with soft tissue mobilization and therapeutic exercise.
Working in outpatient orthopedic clinics she gained a lot of knowledge and experience with many types of conditions and injuries including spinal problems, upper extremity overuse, post-op and sports injuries. During her time as a PT professional, she completed many continuing education classes in soft tissue mobilization, PNF, cranial-sacral and osteopathic techniques.
She took a break from PT to go to work as a massage therapist at the Bay Club Redwood Shores for 13 years. There she enjoyed working with many dedicated amateur athletes (triathlons, tennis, squash players) and busy people who simply needed to unwind. Virginia has studied and teaches Afro Cuban and Brazilian dance and continues to train in the martial art Aikido where she earned the rank of third-degree black belt. In addition, she has taught Pilates mat and Yoga classes in PT clinics and fitness clubs. Virginia draws upon all of these experiences to provide therapeutic nurturing massage sessions that address your particular needs.
