I am a massage therapist originally from Detroit, now living in San Jose California. Of all the careers I could have selected, massage was the one that selected me. As a child I experienced the power of touch, through massaging my grandmother, Midy. She had a condition that caused extreme swelling of her legs and joint pain. Wanting to ease her pain, I would take baby oil or lotion and rub it all over her legs. At the age of five I did not have the best technique, but I knew my touch made her smile and feel better. As I grew older I never forgot that time with Midy, and I knew one day I would become a professional massage therapist. So, after completing college and several years in the corporate world, with the support of my friends and family, I pursued my dream of learning the healing art of massage.
Each client has different needs, so I tailor each session to fit their goals. I strive to ensure complete comfort; to soothe tired aching muscles, reduce muscle spasms and cramping, improve muscle function and range of motion. Massage is also a great way to experience improved sleep, flexibility, reduce swelling and headache pain. Using a variety of techniques, including focused breathing, deep tissue massage, sports massage, facilitated stretching, as well as traditional Thai massage, I create sessions specific to each client’s body.
My massage education was received through the DeAnza Community College Massage Therapy program, the School of Shiatsu and Massage in Middletown CA and TMC School of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Currently I hold the post of VP of Education for the Silicon Valley unit of the American Massage Therapy Association, the AMTA. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Wayne State University.
When I am not in the massage room, I can be found practicing Bikram Yoga, riding my bike with my awesome husband or cooking up a storm. Please give me a soon call to set up an appointment.
I am trained in sports massage, trigger point therapy, Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy and hot stone massage and detox wraps. I have experience in massaging individuals of all ages suffering from chronic pain, stress, injuries, postural dysfunction and physical handicaps. A Chilean native, I am a sports person, businesswoman and experienced soccer coach. From her varied life experience and educational training, Tina is able to customize massage sessions for every client.

I graduated from Massage School in Massachusetts in 2007. I first worked for the YMCA of Greater Boston and then moved to California, where I worked for a chiropractor for 2 years. I’m very therapeutic oriented. I master a wide range of massage techniques, such as:
- Swedish massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofascial release
- Proprioceptive neuromuscular therapy
- Deep tissue massage
“I always adapt my techniques to the specific needs of every single client. My main focus is the well-being and balance of the person as a whole. I strive to provide high quality massage while responding to the client’s needs and concerns. I am dedicated to making people feel better and I like to practice what I preach. In order to help my clients in the best way possible, I maintain my condition through regular massage, chiropractic care and exercise: lots of stretching, TRX, yogalates, bodysculpt, hiking, swimming.” – Estelle
