About Us

Maya Nicholls, CMT Massage therapist sonoma
Maya loves to give massage because she enjoys helping people feel better. Maya is extremely compassionate, has a calming and quiet personality and genuinely cares about her clients well-being. Maya has a unique ability to release chronic tension, relax a tired soul and provides a quiet beautiful sanctuary so that you can "Be truly cared for." Maya graduated from the Sebastopol Massage Center in 2008 and has been practicing massage ever since. In 2010, Maya graduated from Sky Hill Institute with over 800 hours of intensive massage therapy education. Maya is an Essential Oil Specialist and uses a variety of healing essential oils during her massage sessions. Maya is a California State & Nationally Certified massage therapist and is fully insured through ABMP.

In 2016, Maya plans to study a new modality called Ashiatsu in Portland Oregon. Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique that uses deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. It combines flowing centrifugal and centripetal push & pull: pumping movements that can create a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. Bars are used above the client's body for balance, support and precise pressure. It's the deepest most luxurious and therapeutic massage on the planet and Maya will be offering it sometime in 2017. Maya is currently not massaging clients, because she is home caring for her toddler, but she is still managing her business and making sure you receive superior care from all of her therapists!
Alaina Hernandez, CMP
Certified Massage Practitioner #67027

Alaina has been involved in health and healing for ten years as counselor, at-risk youth mentor and therapeutic wilderness guide. Her dedication to service led her to study massage from Jupiter Hollow, a small massage school that explores many techniques but focuses on mind-body awareness and Esalen style massage. Alaina's highly intuitive massage draws mostly from Swedish, Lomi Lomi and Esalen techniques.

Alaina draws on her experience in counseling to provide a safe and calm environment that allows clients to connect to their emotions and gain awareness around discomfort and pain. She believes that all people have the capacity to heal and shift patterns; her goal is to create a space for individuals to access this ability and to provide tools and guidance for this transformation.

Lexi Ward, MT
Lexi has been involved in the healing arts most of her life. She became a massage therapist in 2000, practicing conscious bodywork for over 14 years. She has expanded upon a wide variety of healing modalities, specializing in deep tissue, swedish, reflexology and energy balancing. Lexi also had the privilege of working with the late Shoshone elder Corbin Harney. Harney started Poo-Ha-Bah (doctor water) a healing center in Death Valley. Working closely with Harney, the healing waters and learning the nature ways, she intends to pass along this wisdom for future generations. With Lexi having Native American blood in her, she feels honored to share her knowledge and gifts. Her focus lies in bringing all people together in honoring our mother earth and all we are, for peace and harmony for all of creation.  She is a mother of two, a kundalini yoga instructor, and an advocate for sustainability and justice for all people.

Michael Walsh, MT

Micheal Walsh massage therapist.Michael's formal training began over 15 years ago when he studied Acupressure and Shiatsu at the Acupressure Institute in Berkley, California. His studies continued and broadened at The Pacific Center of Awareness and Bodywork in Hawaii where he learned Deep Tissue and Structural Integration. These experiences helped Michael realize his passion for Bodywork and they have provided the basis for his well rounded approach to Healing Touch.

Micheal has studied Swedish, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Cranial Sacral, Deep Tissue, and Structural Integration. His style usually incorporates most of these modalities into a seamless experience that is potent yet relaxing. Micheal has a strong yet nurturing touch and the ability to be versatile in his approach to bodywork. Whether you are looking for a therapeutic Deep Tissue massage or more of a relaxing Swedish style or a combination of both, Michael can accommodate to your specific requests. Michael is aware that every client has different needs and he is sensitive to these needs.

Clients often tell Michael that his intuitive style of assisted stretching and joint movement is very effective. He has found that this technique is useful for unwinding chronic tension and alleviating pain from old injuries. His calm and relaxed demeanor helps to facilitate a space of trust where deep healing and relaxation can begin.
