Theresa Fallon, Massage Therapist
Theresa Fallon came to massage through her own personal transformation process. Once an accomplished medical informatics professional, she left a stable corporate job to soak up the sun, open her heart, and learn massage.
In 2007, she attended the Santa Fe School of Massage. It was here that she learned the finer details of anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology. And, she fully embraced a healing arts education. She has woven her skills, gifts, and foundational biological science knowledge into a beautiful type of massage.
She uses Swedish massage in combination with anatomically specific strokes and often includes effective neuromuscular techniques that resolve muscle spasms or muscle tightness.
