Renata Padilha

Licensed Massage Therapist, MA60255486

Seattle Healing Hands

During her pregnancy in Hawaii in 2008, Renata fully  realized the importance of health and wellness. She has always loved the idea of what massage therapy can do for one’s well-being as a natural way to create balance to the body and mind.  She attended massage school a few years later in Seattle and learned natural ways of nurturing the body. Helping people become free of pain through touch is fascinating and is definitely on her life path.  Her massage style has a "heart-felt touch" because she works with compassion at the center of every session. Her 10 years of experience working with clients in a chiropractic clinic, sports rehabilitation and spas has allowed her to create a good sense of what the body needs with pressure and technique.  She is honored to get to know you and treat your body temple.
