CEO and the Owner of Healing Energy & Body Works, but maybe better known as "The Massage Geek".
She absolutely LOVES massage – both giving and receiving.
Due to childhood injuries, she had experienced chronically tight neck, back & shoulder pain as well as occasional sciatica, numbness in her cheek and hand. As a result, she received numerous massages and bodywork in her native Japan, America, Canada and Europe. She grew up massaging people as a hobby -- at home, college dorms, and even at companies she worked. After 12 years of office work, she decided to realize her life-long dream of helping others by her skills and compassion.
Always searching for new ways to better serve her clients, she is quickly developing an enthusiastic fan base in Orange & LA Counties and beyond.
Sakura currently works at:
- Her cozy massage room at Healing Energy & Body Works at 9901 Hamilton Ave., Huntington Beach, CA 92646;
