Opuntia (ō-pŭn′shē-ə) is the genus name of the Prickly Pear Cactus, a source of food, water, medicine and protection. Thriving in the harshest of environments, Prickly Pears have come to symbolize adaptability, endurance, determination, growth, and health.  Opuntia Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork is passionate about helping your body heal itself.


If you’re looking for a “I want to treat myself” massage, I am not the therapist for you. My goal is to help you achieve relief from chronic muscular and connective tissue pain, as well as generalized stress and tension. I consider myself a pain detective—I’ll investigate what you need and tailor an adaptive massage of various modalities just for you.   When it comes to massage, I do not believe in “No pain, no gain-dig in ’til it hurts”, instead I like to work within an area I call “tolerable tender”.
