I had an online body therapy session with Geneva via Zoom and it was amazing. I've been having trouble with carpal tunnel syndrome (“tennis elbow”) for the past 4 - 5 months that made it hard to do simple things like lugging groceries around, washing dishes or even holding my phone up. Geneva is super knowledgeable and was able to instantly recommend, explain, and demonstrate a few exercises to help alleviate the pain as well as make my arm stronger. I had noticed significant improvement and a lot less pain in the days after. Why did I not do this sooner?!
HI I'M GENEVA (SAMPSON) GONZALEZ
I'm an intuitive massage therapist, who appreciates the body, the way it communicates and adapts for us each and every day. My curiosity drives me to continue learning --about the body, about stress and the body response, about the brain and its role in movement patterns, pain, and healing.
My love for learning new skills, an interest in health and a car
accident during college set me on a path to discover massage
therapy. I first benefited from bodywork and massage therapy while
I was recovering from the crash and was truly surprised by how much
each session also helped take my mind away from the daily grind,
stress and overwhelm. Years later, I figured out that serving
people through touch was how I wanted to spend my days.
My health and healing journey has seen its share of struggles and setbacks but continues to evolve. I've come to realize that health isn't really a destination or a goal for me anymore, but is part of my lifestyle and will ebb and flow at wildly different paces depending on the day.
My goals are simply to move mindfully and efficiently, breathe deeply and eat to fuel my cells.
WHERE I AM TODAY
Each session is much like a dance, I have to feel how each guest is responding to me, my touch and my energy at that moment. And it will change throughout the session, I've learned to trust the process. However, I am purposeful about the techniques I choose to study, supporting my mission of helping you to have functional, pain-free movement.
