Franziska Cichy Ramirez


Techniques I Use: Deep tissue, Swedish, myofascial release, reflexology.

About My Practice: I’ve always been interested in holistic healing and through bodywork I found my calling. Through my own personal injuries and general discomfort from the work I was doing at the time I found how beneficial a massage can be and how my quality of life changed. I thrive when I can relieve aches and pains, help heal injuries and relax the mind. Every body is different and I adjust my sessions to fit your body’s individual needs giving you a personalized treatment every time. I will let tight muscles and tissue release by starting slow and will gradually apply deeper pressure getting the body’s “permission“ if you will. My hope is you can leave feeling like your best self!

About me: I grew up in Germany and have family both here and there and used to spend my summers in Long Beach with my grandparents until in 2015 I decided to move and in doing so connected to some distant family members who happened to be body workers and thus my interest in healing with my hands came to be! When I’m not working I like to cuddle my fat cat, do yoga, hike, explore new places and eat lots of good food.

About My Practice: I was attracted to massage therapy and different forms of holistic healing for several years before I pursued my certification. I have gathered and refined a deep set of massage skills while studying Massage Therapy and Asian Bodywork at Pacific College of Health and Science. I love to help clients reach a deep state of relaxation and meditation while relieving physical tension and pain during my treatments. My preferred treatment method is a swaying mix of Western Swedish massage and Eastern Deep Tissue to ensure my clients are deeply relaxed while receiving the maximum benefits of muscle therapy. I work so my clients walk away feeling healthy, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

Lisa Hughes


Techniques I Use: Swedish, myofascial release, deep tissue, PNF, stretch therapy, aromatherapy, prenatal massage, reiki.

About My Practice: I’ve always been interested in holistic wellness practices and the importance of self-care. Our choices we make every day directly impact our health and well being. Maintaining health requires a consistent balance. We must “heal faster than we injure” . When this balance is disturbed our health begins to suffer. Some variables are out of our control such as air and water pollution and agrochemical food production. Stress management, sleep habits, daily exercise and nutrition are all areas we can work on to improve our health. This is where my passion lies. The last eight years I have been committed to pursuing wellness practices.

About me: I have been practicing massage therapy for the last 8 yrs. part time . May 2021 I retired from nursing after 35 yrs. The majority of that time I worked in the hospital setting in the area of orthopedics and physical rehabilitation. I recently moved from NJ to San Diego when my daughter started studying at SDSU. When I’m not working I enjoy gardening, cooking, nature walks and Qi Gong.
