Reanna Whitnall, CMTReanna grew up in a small town in the mountains of Northern California. When she was a teenager she spent her summers working as an outdoor leader guiding backpacking, rock climbing, and ropes course adventure trips. At the end of exhausting days the group of leaders would take turns massaging each other’s backs, and she discovered that she had a natural talent for massage.
While she was attending college many of Reanna’s friends would ask her for shoulder rubs, and they would tell her she was so good that they would pay her. After a few years in college pursuing a psychology degree, she decided that a career in massage therapy may actually be the best path for her. Reanna moved from California to Seattle, WA in 1999 and completed her training at the Brenneke School of Massage in 2000.
She began her career working at a day spa where she learned hot stone massage, prenatal massage, body treatments, and broadened her knowledge of aromatherapy. After practicing for a year, she started working with clients who needed treatment for chronic pain and realized that working deeper in the muscles in most cases was more effective for breaking up soft tissue adhesions.
Reanna and a close friend and colleague from massage school practiced on each other to develop a style that combined relaxing Swedish techniques with deep tissue and myofascial release treatment techniques. This resulted in breakthroughs that were life changing for their clients. In 2002, she and her friend set out to start a massage therapy business.
After building their practice for a year, they expanded their business, hiring several therapists to help more clients and spend more time running the business. Reanna also began providing on-site corporate chair massage and enjoyed being able to provide her services to a broader audience.
After successfully running their massage business for almost 9 years, she and her partner sold the practice to pursue other avenues. Reanna wanted to return to California to be closer to family and get some sunshine again. She and her husband relocated to the San Diego area in 2012. After taking a 2 year hiatus to start a family, she returned to work with a renewed passion for massage therapy.
Reanna is a highly-skilled, licensed massage therapist, CA Certified Massage Therapist #38856.
