Massage therapist Holly Oakander’s entire life has been accompanied by gentle waves of healing. In the cozy North Bay town where she grew up, holistic therapy was a common presence, making the idea of a career in alternative healing a natural fit. Holly traveled to Santa Barbara to study massage, specializing in reflexology.
Over six years later, Holly continues to enjoy the ebb and flow of Santa Barbara’s healing energy, which she harnesses through her practice at Gentle Tides Massage. She customizes massage therapies for each client’s unique wellness needs, finding that some of that healing energy washes over her as well. After all, helping others pushes her toward her goal of becoming a more skilled and empathic therapist.
