From a young age, Bria carries a natural tendency toward massage. Very often she enjoyed massaging her parents after a stressful day at work. Later in life and after several inspiring journeys around the world, she made her way back to massage and healing.
She completed massage school at San Francisco School of Massage and Bodywork and developed a strong base of modalities including Swedish massage, Clinical massage, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point, Neuromuscular Therapy, Orthobionomy, Pregnancy Massage, Lymphatic Massage, Stretching & Mobilization and Sports Massage.
Soon after, she found herself drawn to a holistic, therapeutic approach to the practice and began working at a ‘Best of’ therapeutic massage place in Montclair. In this environment, she really felt in sync with her soul purpose – to develop healing relationships with her clients. As an avid meditator, she brings you 150% of her attention throughout the session and deeply enjoys entering a healing dimension with her clients.
Bria loves to cater her sessions based on each individual’s needs. She shines most when given the opportunity to delve deeper into modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point, complimented by subtle hints of ortho-bionomy, cranio-sacral, tuning forks, and reiki.
