Kaylene W. Massage Therapist

"When I first started classes at Santa Barbara Bodyworks I was simply looking to gain a skill to supplement the work I current do at my job. But after taking my first class (with Shanna Price), I was inspired to work towards making massage therapy a career. SB Bodyworks provides a comprehensive and unique list of classes to cater to any direction a student may want to take their career. The instructors stay up to date with the most current research regarding specific massage techniques and practices. I'm excited to continue my education at SB Bodyworks and see where it takes me."
