Amalia
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Amalia Castanon Hill is a product of her “Hippy” parents. While her father stayed home to raise Amalia and her two siblings, her Mother held down the family with an great career at Random House Publishing. Her Mom maintained balance by honoring practices that her Native American/Mexican heritage provided, especially when it came to health. With this foundation and the forward thinking actions of her role-defying parents, Amalia was always exposed to Indigenous medicines, mostly herbs, and healing modalities.

Massage Therapy quickly became Amalia’s focus.  She found a love of bodywork, health and wellness through her parents. She received her CMT hours from McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland. Her career began to bud beautifully.

Amalia loves to learn, appreciates variety and new experiences, and has an incredible knack for being present with her clients. “Listening with her hands and her heart,” seems to be her gift. Amalia does Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Acupressure, Hot Stone and more!
Schedule: Saturday & Sundays 10-4pm, Tuesdays 10-4pm

Jessica

Jessica sees massage as an integral part to our preventative and complimentary health care. Her particular area of interest is how massage engages our rest and digest (parasympathetic nervous system) response to allow our bodies to heal themselves. Jessica is an intuitive massage therapist with a fascination for anatomy and attention to detail. She is amazed at the healing power of touch and continues learning new modalities in the field of massage therapy.

Jessica was born and raised in Sacramento, CA and would often visit the Bay Area growing up. After studying art at college in Oregon she moved to Chicago to pursue a career in the animal care industry (pet shelters, pet nutrition, and dog grooming). In 2014 Jessica took yoga teacher training in Ashtanga and Yin yoga which jump started her into the path of natural healing. She later went on to study massage therapy and start working in Chicago in spa, chiropractic, and mobile massage. Her particular favorites have included mobile massage at downtown Chicago hotel spas and prenatal clients.

Excited to be back in her home state Jessica uses her free time to enjoy cooking a mostly vegan diet with her husband, spend time with her pets, and making art. She is so happy to be a part of the team at Piedmont Spa!

Schedule: Tuesday & Wednesday 3-9pm, Friday 1-7pm, Saturday 10-3pm

Marcial's training began as a boy in rural Mexico learning the traditions of curanderismo, the natural way of healing physical and emotional illness of Mexico and Latin America.  He was brought to massage by his mentors, and found connection through the Esalen Institute.  He completed his massage studies at McKinnon, where he learned modalities including: Esalen massage, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports massage, as well as some Acupressure, and Shiatsu. He has a warm, grounded presence, and a well-rounded variety of tools he uses to tailor a session to the individual needs of his clients. 

Schedule: Monday and Tuesday 4-9pm


Michael

 My view of wellness comes largely from the perspective of Ida Rolf’s theory that sound function follows integrated form. Achieving longevity and living free of chronic illness, fatigue, and pain requires attention and engagement in the restructuring of one’s physical form.   Breaking away from movement and thinking patterns that lead us away from a holistic and integrated system is empowering as well as fun.  What you will learn on this path to health you will take with you and be able to use on your own to take charge of your own well-being.

We will work using a structural integration set of 10 sessions that is rooted in the teaching of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkreis, and Zen Master Tanouye Tenshin Rotaishi.  This work will release you from contractive patterning, softening and lengthening your muscles and tendons, opening all the joints, connecting from head to toe through an integrated myofascial network, and creating the conditions for broader sensory awareness.   We will also be working with exercises and phrases from Tai Chi and Ji Bin Gung that will set the changes in tendon length and efficient movement patterns into your nervous system.

What I am seeking in pursuing Chinese Internal Martial arts and the healing corrective arts is multidimensional strength, longevity, and an ever growing connectivity.  Sensory awareness is a fun and endless journey that requires patience, meditation, and daily practice.  

Becoming connected requires learning to move in a different way.  We will learn how to engage the fascia matrix from head to toe and gain a sense of fullness.  By lessening the use of contracting individual muscles or groups we will learn to live and breath using the entire body in an open lengthening manner.  

Schedule: Substitute therapist. Call for schedule.

Resham (Ray-Shum)

Resham is here to wake up inert muscle tissue and offer soothing care to nervous systems. From an early age, she was allured by dynamism in dance and the precision of portrait drawing and ceramic sculpture based on anatomical study of the human figure. Finding massage was a natural progression from work with clay bodies to human bodies, a chance for her to connect other people to a story of healing. In her massage practice, she draws from intuitive listening skills obtained from dedicated art practice, yoga, trauma-sensitive healing, and the completion of the 1350 hour massage and advanced Neuromuscular Therapy program at National Holistic Institute.

Resham’s practice involves a mix of modalities including Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, Abdominal Release, Shiatsu, Swedish, Hot Stone, and Prenatal massage.

Clients and friends have described her touch as investigative and sensitive. Resham has worked on bodies of all ages, from a variety of cultures. She regularly volunteers massage to the socioeconomically disadvantaged. She is continuously seeking to learn from everything around her and still engages in art making, dance exploration, and plant-food, all as medicine.

Schedule: Sunday 4-9pm, Monday 10-3pm. Every other Saturday 3-9pm
