Hi, my name is Irma. I have spent almost 20 years of my life helping people recover from physical and emotional setbacks. Throughout this time, I have developed a broad range of skills and experiences that allow me to help my clients achieve holistic healing, health, and well being.

I have been providing different types of body work treatments on the Peninsula for over 15 years.

I was born and raised in Switzerland, where I was trained as rehabilitation nurse and worked in several hospitals. After moving to California in 1995, I studied massage at the Body Therapy Center in Palo Alto and later became state certified as massage therapist in California. I have since received additional training and certification in:

  • Therapeutic and Sports Massage (1997)
  • Zero Balancing (2002)
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (2003)
  • Personal Training (American Council of Exercise — ACE, 2009)
  • Acupressure (2010)
  • SEVA Stress Release — Self Care (2010)

My background as a rehabilitation nurse combined with my extensive experience in different forms of body work, allows me to effectively incorporate and combine various therapeutic elements into my treatments. In this way, I can best meet the individual needs of my clients and enhance their healing process.

Throughout my career, I have successfully helped people of all ages suffering from a wide range of ailments including: chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), post-surgical trauma and emotional stress.

I also run a home wellness program where I develop for my clients a customized program of gentle stretches, acupressure points, and relaxation techniques that help them quickly reach more comfort and greater vitality.

I am constantly staying up to date on the latest techniques and expanding my knowledge of other therapeutic approaches so I can best help my clients to attain their personal goals.

Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, swimming, running, Yoga, and just being out, rejuvenating in nature. I have participated and completed marathons, cycling and Ironman competitions. I also love walking my little dog, Frida, and hiking, and in 2012, I hiked over 400 miles in just 33 days from Geneva to Nice.



"I appreciated the relaxing environment, learning what I could do at home, and feeling better! Also very individualized."

"Thanks, too, for the great session today. I can't believe how much straighter (and happier) my toes are! I will work hard to keep them that way"

"I feel so much better! The bump on my left leg is down and my low back feels much, much better! You are great!"

"Both my massage and pressure point treatment were superb. Professional expertise, but also my comments, were considered and applied."
