Franchesca Barisano LMT
California State Licensed Massage Therapist
Franchesca discovered her passion for Massage Therapy in 2011 after receiving regular treatments at her Chiropractor's office. Receiving both trigger point massage and circulatory massage three times a over a three month treatment, Franchesca noticed how her stress level dramatically decreased and she became more aware of her body and how to care for it. More importantly, she wanted to take better care of herself and wanted to continue to experience that fresh off the massage table euphoria in her day to day life. Receiving the gift of therapeutic touch awakened her desire to work in the holistic health field and be a part of something she truly believes in. She attended the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego, where she studied many massage modalities and concentrated in Neuromuscular Therapy Massage. Her intention is to lower the general tone of tightened muscles and the central nervous system while bringing awareness and ease to muscular pains and tension headaches. Whether you are a stay at home Mom or a marathon runner, she specializes in customized bodywork sessions designed especially for your body taking into consideration your unique anatomy, occupation, hobbies and medical history.
When Franchesca is not massaging, she is out and about enjoying life with her 8 year old daughter.

California State Licensed Esthetician
Trisha's passion and excitement for skincare began years ago when she suffered from teenage acne and later from some scarring and sun damage. She wanted her skin to glow and keep a youthful look. After being a stay-at-home-mom for seven years and eventually deciding it was time to go back to work, earning her Esthetician License was the logical choice. Trisha believes that a daily home-care regimen with quality skincare products is very important. Additionally, monthly facials and, in some cases, enhanced and more aggressive procedures such as peels and micro-dermabrasion, will result in beautiful and more healthy skin. Waxing and eyelash extensions are other services Trisha provides to maximize your overall sense of beauty and well-being.
