Lyssa was born with healing hands and massage runs through her blood. Her grandfather and great grandfather were both massage therapist in the 1930-50's in the Bay Area practicing sports massage on athletes and military personnel. She has been passionate about massage most of her life, recognizing her intrinsic ability since she was 10 from her grandfather. She has been professionally practicing massage therapy for over eight years, studying at South Bay Massage College, Esalen Institute, Axis Evolving, and NMT Center. She continues to further her education regularly in massage techniques and therapies.
Her goal is to help each client become attuned with their body both mentally and physically; to aid in alleviating muscle aches and pains, develop better posture symmetry, and work toward achieving a stress free journey through life. She has worked under the guidance with Chris Rials-Seitz and Johnny Seitz in Culver City at their studio Axis Evolving. Johnny is an autistic savant, working with emotional trauma and stroke survivors. His approach to body work is similar to somatic therapy. Lyssa has been able to use his advanced understanding of body mechanics and his own method of "Bio-Typing" and body mechanics, applying it to clients overall health and fitness goals.
