While the resort spas are closed during covid, we are so grateful and excited to have the gifts and talents of Vanessa Saldarriaga available to our clients and community. Vanessa is normally a senior therapist at one of the nations’ top spas and resorts. She is an experienced and gifted massage therapist, skilled in medical therapeutic massage, cupping, reflexology, Ayruvedic Massage, swe-thai massage, and more.
Clients with scoliosis benefit in the ability for Vanessa to collaborate with your physiotherapist to create a custom massage treatment tailored specific to your needs. While clients can of course choose any treatment that appeals to them, we are excited to share our own unique method, "Cupping at the Concavity”. This technique integrates the principles applied in our Schroth physio sessions.
Our client's health and safety is our highest priority. As we welcome Vanessa to Kioko, we have created staggered treatment days, so that you will be the only massage client at the time, and in a dedicated and private massage suite, with an optional separate entrance and exit available. We look forward to you enjoying this incredible service!
Vanessa believes that massage therapy is a powerful and essential asset that contributes to a person’s overall wellbeing for the mind, body, and spirit. She understands that every person is unique, and comes to the table with experiences that often manifest as restrictions in the physical body. Through listening to the body and thoughtful communication, Vanessa has a warm and collaborative approach that helps her clients to reach their specific goals in a very efficient manner. Her therapeutic approach is thorough, soothing, and effective. Clients find her work to be truly transformative.
Vanessa’s extensive experience working in medical offices and resort spas has given her the tools to offer a unique experience to every person she welcomes in her massage room. She brings a vast array of expertise to best serve her clients, whether it be deep tissue, cupping, reflexology, pre-natal, swe-thai, medical massage, Ayruvedic Massage, or more.
Ayruveda is central to Vanessa’s approach in life, as it teaches us that optimal health is achieved when we support the body as a whole entity; subtle shifts in areas that are out of balance can promote profound changes throughout multiple systems of the body, having a significantly positive impact on the quality of our movements, digestion, thought patterns, sleep, breath, and more. We invite you to experience one of the best massages you will ever have.
