Hi, my name is Traci, and I have been a massage therapist since 2004. It has been a long and winding road to find my ultimate passion in the healing arts. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY, lived in Los Angeles for years, now I live in LA.
At an early age I was drawn to massage as my mother chose me to work on her "bad back.” She was the first of many to say that I have strong, healing hands.
I have a science background as a pre-medicine student at Northwestern University, although I elected not to go to medical school. I become deeply interested in the mind-body connection and instead pursued social work. I bring deep listening skills to my bodywork, tuning into the needs and wants of the client. My philosophy is that I facilitate healing and wellness for the body, mind, and soul.
My massage work is very intuitive, fluid, and therapeutic. I specialize in Deep Tissue, and if requested I incorporate other modalities such as Swedish, Sports, Lomi Lomi, Craniosacral, Reflexology, and Thai.
I love to travel and had the opportunity to learn Thai massage, at the source, in Thailand! I truly enjoy working on artists and athletes, and I welcome the opportunity to bring my healing, “feel-good” touch to you.

Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
