Catherine Elumba
CAMTC #04691

Catherine found her calling for healing when she initially started out her education in Nursing. While she learned that Western medicine can be effective in treating symptoms of disease, she knew that preventative healing education and therapy  was where her true passion lied. She bravely left the USF nursing program in 2001, set out to learn more about the human body, and received her BS in kinesiology from San Francisco State University in 2006. In 2009, she graduated from the National Holistic Institute in San Francisco and began her practice in massage therapy. 

 

With over 7 years of massage experience, her passion for bodywork is rooted in Eastern therapies, particularly Acupressure, Shiatsu, and Thai techniques. She also has a deep love for rehabilitative work and often uses myofascial release with deep tissue. The combination of these modalities is most effective for pain management and aiding clients maintain their individual wellness programs. Her sessions are best described as "East meets West". Being an intuitive facilitator of healing, she believes that the combination of physical techniques, positive energy, and education create the ultimate healing environment.
