Hello, my name is Florann Vazquez, my clients call me Flo. I am a Massage Therapist certified by the California Massage Therapy Council and a Personal Trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Helping people reduce pain and improve their daily functional ability has been a rewarding experience. I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve my clients and witness their healing.
I have been teaching massage and self-care playshops at the McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland for the past three years. I use many modalities of touch and bodywork to help my clients on their healing journey. One of the techniques is Fascial Stretch Therapy® (FST). FST is a pain free stretching technique designed to help athletes and non-athletes alike. I will stretch your body in ways you can't do yourself. Melting the knots and lubricating your joints will increase your flexibility and enhance your quality of life.
One of my favorite approaches to healing is CranioSacral Therapy (CST) - the gentle holds help the nervous system re-balance. It has been proven to help teenagers and adults calm anxiety so they can settle into a peaceful mind. I'm looking forward to sharing this amazing healing technique with you.
Schedule a session today, I can't wait to share these wonderful touch therapies with you!
Receiving bodywork is grounding and helps you drop into your center. My massage room is a safe space. I will meet you where you are: mind, body and spirit. I will attune to your healing process to support the regeneration of your body, help your mind find peace and remind your spirit to soar.
My other interests include teaching Zumba™ classes in Berkeley, learning Japanese and Mandarin and practicing Spanish. I love hiking in Redwood Regional Park, Joaquin Miller Park and exploring the beautiful natural sites in the Bay Area.
I look forward to meeting you! Feel free to leave me a message on my contact page.
