Being in this industry for 2 years (almost 3) has been such an astonishing journey for her, with its ups, downs and all a-rounds, learning new things from different and amazing people. Developing the craft that has brought people back to spa doors has taken patience, knowledge, communication, steadfast listening and experience throughout her time massaging. Each modality Estrella brings into the massage room is a blend of deep tissue, trigger point and a relaxing touch at the end of the session. Everyday she’s thankful to God for the life He has given her and brought to her too. Estrella’s hope is to meet you one day to help you with your aches and pain.
