Arianna’s first massage training was at the tender age of zero, while her mother attended massage school, seven months pregnant. Arianna knew from a young age that she would do massage and healing work alongside her other artistic pursuits. However, it took a life threatening illness in her early 20’s to lead her to her own healing at the entrance point of the navel, and what is now her specialty of internal organ belly massage, also known as “applied chi kung” and Chi Nei Tsang. Today, Arianna integrates and embraces her lineage of holistic medicine healers with roots in Taoist Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Aztec, Huichol Indian and mixed European ancestry. She is a gifted Massage Therapist, Applied Chi Kung practitioner, and Young Living Essential Oil educator with over 15 years of professional experience in the healing arts. She is known for her healing belly massage, Raindrop Therapy spinal treatments, Aromatherapy medicinal plant knowledge, cleansing Korean body scrubs, and divine couples Tantra and Spa Journey treatments.
Arianna’s primary area of expertise is Chi Nei Tsang (chee-nay-song), the ancient Taoist Chinese healing art of applied chi kung to the internal organs for greater health and vitality. Originating from the white cloud monks 5,000 years ago, Chi Nei Tsang was used to cleanse, detoxify, and transform the energy of the internal organs, so as to fortify the immune system and harbor the higher spiritual energies needed for their practices. This treatment works mainly on the abdomen with deep, soft and gentle touch, to train internal organs to work more efficiently while integrating the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of ones being. Today, people receive Chi Nei Tsang treatments for everything from insomnia, PTSD, infertility, PMS, fibroids, IBS, constipation, anxiety, depression, addiction, detoxification, and digestive complaints, and also enjoy the benefits of a tune up for all of the body systems.

In Arianna’s Own Words:
“What makes my bodywork effective, and keeps clients coming back, is the transformation that occurs in their sessions. After the treatment, people talk about how much lighter and more free they feel or how their discomfort and pain has melted away. My sessions are deep yet gentle, energetically clearing, and profoundly relaxing. My clients relax to the point of snoring sometimes and I take that as the ultimate compliment. But seriously, I enjoy holding grounded, sacred healing space for people to unwind and release the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual weight that they carry around day after day.
My style is a magical balance between practical and ethereal work, and the people that enjoy my sessions are everyone from Deep Tissue fanatics, to Swedish and Reiki Energy lovers, to Aromatherapy enthusiasts, and also people with gut and spinal issues. My true specialty is combining all of these modalities into one outrageously therapeutic, floatingly feel good session. I do this work to empower myself and others to embody more health, more abundance, more vitality, and more joy. That is my mission. I am truly honored and grateful to serve others in this way.”

I truly felt a very specific and yet expansive holy anointing taking place, reconnecting me with Ancient Scriptures encoded in my body constitution.

“If you want to step into another realm… another dimension… and come out feeling like you’re floating on clouds… Go see Arianna!! This lady KNOWS HER STUFF. No joke. It’s never just a massage, when it comes to her skills. There’s always healing, transformation, and transcendence involved when you have a session with this gifted woman. She’s got a keen sense for intuitively feeling your energy out before beginning the session with you, and makes sure to relate to you on an energy-level before commencing her work so that she knows exactly what areas need to be targeted and healed. She’s subtle enough to touch energy fields, yet strong enough to get through to the most stubborn physical blocks you might be carrying around, even unknowingly. I absolutely LOVE Arianna, and would highly recommend her to anyone!” ~Flor V, – Bellydancer, Artist
