Maricel is a Certified Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, and Kundalini Activation Light Integration (KALI) Facilitator. She specializes in Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage, and loves to integrate the Hawaiian spiritual culture in her healing services. She studied at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Escondido, California from 2011-2012. In 2016, she studied with instructors from Hawaii at a local Sacred Lomi® retreat rooted in the lineage of Kahu Abraham Kawai’i (sometimes referred to as Temple Style Lomi, Hawaiian Temple Bodywork, or Kahuna Bodywork). She also studied under a shaman at Balanced Energies Reiki and Shamanism School in Temecula.
She has been practicing massage and reiki for 11 years, and recently has felt drawn to KALI to help with her own personal evolution as well as her career. Maricel feels KALI helps her become more aligned with herself and her purpose, and strongly feels called to share this utmost, beautiful, and powerful energy with others to help them empower themselves. Maricel desires to be a conduit for healing, love, and light, and KALI gives her the opportunity to be just that. She also practices yoga, tai chi, and meditation, which she incorporates into her bodywork.
Her work was featured in SD Voyager, and in 2019 and 2020 she was awarded Best Reiki Therapist in Solana Beach, where her first massage practice was located. She also had the pleasure to work and train at The Chopra Center, and is grateful to share Ayurvedic massage techniques and marma point therapy.
In the beginning of 2020, she closed her practice due to the pandemic and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she passed the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam and learned other modalities from several spas that she worked for. Her credentials include cupping therapy and Himalayan salt stone massage, which she now offers in her private practice.
Since early 2022, Maricel’s love for her family and the ocean has led her to move back to California. She reopened her practice, and is now offering her services in the San Diego and Temecula area.
