About Cara

Hello! My name is Cara, and I am a Certified Massage Therapist beginning my career in sunny California! I'm from Chicago, born and raised, received my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, and received my massage education at Cortiva Institute-Chicago School of Massage Therapy. Cortiva Institute's massage therapy curriculum has guided me to becoming a well-rounded massage therapist.

I prefer to work in my client's home. I think that is definitely creates a special bond between the therapist and the client, especially when the client doesn't have to go out of their way for good, healthy bodywork. At home you share a sacred space for your session, and I find that space to be enlightening every time I work with someone. I strive to make solid treatment plans with my clients in order to best fit their lifestyles and movement patterns. If you're a runner, or if you normally sit at a computer for hours at work, the massage is going to be different.

Communication throughout the massage is a beautiful thing. That way we are both in the experience together, and I can know and improve what my touch feels like for you!

As of now I am working in Culver City, and am deeply enjoying it. I love providing Swedish massages, but I thrive on more interactive sessions with stretches, neuromuscular techniques, and helping your body reset itself. Your body already knows what to do. I just help it along with a little boost.

Please feel free to contact me via telephone or email! I'm eagerly awaiting to hear from you.
