Maureen Boksa, LMT #22044
Maureen Boksa, LMT graduated from the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage in 2014 with advanced coursework in several different treatment modalities, including but not limited to, Lomi Lomi, Trager, Craniosacral, Aston, and Shiatsu.
Moe has a strong background in traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, a method of bodywork that has taken on many forms as it has descended through several lineages on the islands. Lomi Lomi is characterized by long flowing strokes of the forearms, bringing deep therapeutic work all the way to the level of the bones, the origin of the “mana” or life force in Hawaiian tradition.
The Trager Approach is another powerful method which Moe enjoys practicing. This is a very gentle, yet effective approach which is done over comfortable clothing, with no use of oil. It is characterized by a combination of passive and active movements which work the tissues from the areas of least to most resistance.
Moe believes very strongly in the body-mind connection and tailoring treatments to the needs of each client. Whether the time is right for deep overall relaxation, specific injury work, improved body alignment, or movement of energies or emotions, treatments may always be modified before or during a session. Moe believes in and promotes work deep into the tissues in a comfortable and productive way.

V Allario, LMT #22787
My training in massage Therapy started in 2002 when I completed the certification course at Pacific School of Massage and Healing Arts, run by Fred and Cheryl Mitouer, in Gualala, CA. This family run school taught me the basic modalities of Swedish, Shiatsu, Accupressure and Energy Healing. The course prepared me to immediately develop a private practice in massage. After a couple years as a practitioner I continued my education in their advanced coursework in Transformational Bodywork in 2004. As I completed their advanced program I also acted as Teacher’s Assistant for many of their courses and developed a mentorship and friendship with Fred that continues to this day.
I have also done extensive study in Biodynamic Cranio-Sacral, Eastern Reflexology, Kundalini Yoga, Kinesiology, Tai Chi and Kung Fu.
Through these trainings I have amassed over 1000 hours of course work, and now have over 15 years of experience developing and maintaining a bodywork practice. I have created an unique heart-centered approach to facilitate healing. This is done through deep tissue bodywork, muscular and structural manipulation, opening of the breath, discovering and unlocking blockages in the mental, physical and emotional bodies. This creates the space for spontaneous healing to occur, giving relief to chronic and acute conditions that keep one stuck in old patterns of movement, behaviors and ways of being.
