Mischa was born and raised in San Diego, lived in the Lake Tahoe area for 25 years before returning to San Diego. Her original education was as a pre-med anatomy and physiology student, then 2 apprenticeships studying and practicing traditional Japanese Zen Shiatsu, and Chinese Meditative massage. Since her initial training over 30 years ago her intuitive way of working has expanded to include deep tissue techniques, sports massage, Swedish, pregnancy massage, reflexology, Ashiatsu and an ability to continually learn from and adapt her work to each client. Mischa enjoys developing a real understanding of what an individual needs during a massage, whether she sees you once or on an ongoing/regular basis. Mischa feels very fortunate that she loves what she does and has the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the health and well-being of her clients.
