April began her career in massage therapy in 2010, upon completion of of her Certified Massage Therapy and Health Educator Certification from the National Holistic Institute in San Jose, CA, where she studied a variety of modalities--bridging the gap between traditional Western and Eastern styles of bodywork. Her specialities include Therapeutic & Rehab massage, Sports massage, Prenatal & Postnatal massage, Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, and Thai massage. Continuing education in advanced pre/post natal massage, Esalen-style massage, and therapeutic myofascial bodywork has provided April with the opportunity to work closely with clients in need of advanced therapeutic work, due to injury or rehab as well as to provide the same access to much needed therapeutic work for pregnant clients, that is often not addressed in the normal course of prenatal massage sessions. In addition to being a CO-Owner of TULA Center for Bodywork, April is a Master Massage Therapist at Santa Cruz CORE Fitness + Rehab, where she has been for over 6 years.
