About Riana na

I bring an eclectic mix of tricks, tools, and trades to give you a treatment that will not only leave you relaxed but empowered to make changes to break the cycle of pain. "All of my massage methods are focused on "deeper" methods and relieving the cause (the root) and not just the symptom, physically and emotionally. I am not a "session" therapist. Most of my clients are on the mat for two hours as they like to get to the deeper levels, ridding them of the everyday pain and discomfort they are experiencing for lasting results.
Since 2000, I’ve consciously been on my own healing path, working to heal myself on all levels, following my intuition. Leading me to be a Facilitator of Healing (a.k.a. “healer”), and mentor for others. I was always the little girl giving massage to my relatives, after I followed everyone into a major university, but received numerous signs that screamed I wasn't on the right path. I traded major for while figured things out, luckily my school also had a massage program. I took one look and said, "You need to be a massage therapist."
The Root comes from the root chakra. Located at the base of the spine it is the foundation of the physical body, bodily life energy, and our connection with the earth. When balanced we feel grounded, centered, secure and safe in our world.
Humans are more than their bodies, each is a complex balance of mental, physical, and spiritual aspects that are integrated into and directly affected by environmental and social factors.
The causes of illness are far deeper rooted than merely their external symptoms. But we live in an age of science based on Newtonian specialization, so each part of the body is viewed and treated as being separate from the rest. Even when the same science has already moved to the quantum level.
