Licensed Massage Therapist
During Trina’s first career, backstage as a theater f/x makeup artist, she began giving informal shoulder massage to cast and crew. Her work also engendered her to study anatomy in order to create prosthetic creatures and body parts. After starting a family, Trina redirected her focus to motherhood for nearly a decade, training as a doula, teaching natural childbirth classes, and providing comforting massage to new moms. In 2011, she graduated from Cortiva Institute with academic honors, and also passed the board certification exam. She joined Lotus Center in 2014. Trina enjoys blending science with nurturing touch and uses a framework of Swedish massage into which she incorporates myofascial release, passive/active neuromuscular techniques, and trigger point therapy.
