Ace Of Cups | Massage Therapists
Annamarie was first introduced to the art of massage during a trip to Northern India in 2011. Upon discovering and falling in love with the practice of kundalini yoga, she promptly followed her instructor at the time on a trip he was leading overseas to deepen her practice and completely immerse herself. The group was signing up for massage classes and she decided to try it out. Immediately, she fell in love with the ability to serve in a meaningful way, and the focus and clarity that came along with it. Upon her return to the states, she dove right in and enrolled in the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School here in Austin, Texas based on the recommendations of some friends she made on the trip. She graduated from the program in 2012 and has since expanded her healing modalities to include craniosacral, cupping, and reiki. Annamarie is also a metalsmith and jewelry designer, spending her weekends at pop-ups and farmers markets around town. She is inspired by many things including rock formations, the human body, time travel, sound, and every single color there is.
Elena has been practicing massage therapy for more than 5 years, she deeply enjoys her work and is always learning more fascinating things about the way each body functions. She is trained in working with lingering muscular issues, deep relaxation, reflexology, polarity therapy, cupping, and is always open and humbled by the amazing dynamics of the body. She deeply enjoys holding space for people, having grown up in a big family where one on one attention was few and far between. With her caring, nurturing, and present touch she intuitively sees the emotions and burdens that reside in the body and intentionally helps move them through, without judgement or expectation. Allowing each client to be met where they are and be guided to where they mostly deeply want to be.
Angie brings with her a willingness to learn and connect wherever she goes. She graduated from Lauterstein-Conway Massage School’s 500-hour program in 2018. She has acquired a variety of experience in her practice with a diverse clientele. Clients who experience discomfort from pregnancy, sedentary desk jobs, cervical stenosis, repetitive stress from athletics/dance/musical instrument playing, sciatica, migraines, rotator cuff strain, and emotional stress have shown improvement in their symptoms from seeing Angie for regular treatment. Clients who have received treatment from Angie remark on her ability to focus and flow, gently and subtly affect the body in a deep way, and meticulously start and finish her somatic craft that leaves the client feeling heard, no stone unturned. She places emphasis on being a facilitator of healing; meaning she believes we each possess innate power to heal and grow within ourselves, and healing facilitators help us find our unique keys to unlock that healing and growth. When we appreciate our one-of-a-kind spirit, we can then lift one another up, and appreciate the personal journeys of those around us. Angie is looking forward to further learning how massage can improve the function of the human body and alleviate pain in individuals through continuing education and practical application. Angie's boundless curiosity, profound compassion, and bone-deep inclination to answer the call to her divine purpose have immersed her in sacred studies of mindful movement, dance, music, yoga, cartomancy, astromancy, Reiki, and the magick in every moment.
Brenda Lee Villarreal
I have been a massage therapist for over 15 years, managed and owned my own massage establishments and have thousands of hours of experience doing the hands on work. My grandmother was herbalist and my father a healer, which inspired me to go into the healing arts. My gift is in the therapeutics of touch, healing touch and therapeutic bodywork. My work isn’t a job to me, it is my passion, my gift that I share with others to facilitate and support their goals to live a fuller and more joyful life and be pain free. I have an intuitive sense about my sessions and how I chose to sequence them, as well as a deep pressure that really gets into those knots and helps you to relieve pain and stress. Each session is individualized to the clients needs.
