Our Massage Therapist's

Andre

“I have been fortunate to live and work in the beautiful Napa Valley and provide therapeutic bodywork to both locals and tourists for over 13 years. My style is a combination of different modalities I have learned throughout my career. I incorporate guided breathing, stretching, detailed bodywork, and energy work. I look forward to working with you soon!”

Andre comes from an extensive spa background and received training at NHI. While specializing in deep tissue work, he provides a deep level of understanding about how the body works. His schedule fills up fast, so book early to get in with Andre.

Dominic

After attending NHI and completing a practice session at a local chiropractic office, Dominic has settled into a career with us at Blue Water. A native of California, Dominic is passionate about the outdoors and has gained a reputation for healing injuries often experienced by outdoor enthusiasts such as muscle strains, ankle sprains, and shoulder injuries. Using techniques such as cupping and CBD has helped to reduce his clients’ recovery time. Book a session with Dominic to experience his expertise for yourself!

Joseph

Joseph has had an extensive journey to get where he is today. It all started when he attended a massage school in Napa and spent several years working diligently to perfect his skills. Although he gained invaluable experience during this time, he felt compelled to broaden his knowledge and explore the intricacies of anatomy and kinesiology. So, with a drive to constantly learn and grow, he decided to enroll in NHI to further his education.

With his past experience in martial arts, Joseph was able to incorporate his knowledge of body movements and mechanics into his massage therapy practice, which has only enhanced his technique. His proficiency with deep tissue work truly shines in the treatment room, and his clients are consistently blown away by the results of his work. Joseph takes pride in using his knowledge and expertise to help each of his clients feel their best physically and emotionally.

Shelby

Shelby joined our team as an intern in 2016, right after her graduation from NHI. We were impressed with her positive attitude, eagerness to learn, and outstanding skills. It was evident from the very beginning that Shelby was destined for greatness. She quickly became an indispensable part of our team, and we couldn’t be happier to have her with us every step of the way.

Over the years, Shelby has become a client favorite due to her approachable, friendly nature and her in-depth knowledge of various bodywork techniques. She is particularly adept at prenatal and pregnancy massage, where she is able to work with expectant mothers to alleviate aches and pains associated with pregnancy. What sets Shelby apart is not only her skill, but her ability to connect with her clients and put them at ease. She is a sensitive listener and understands how to tailor each session to the needs of the individual. 

We truly believe that it’s amazing people like Shelby who have contributed to our success and growth as a business. Shelby’s dedication and professionalism are an inspiration to us all, and we are grateful to have her as part of our Blue Water family.

Kait

A Napa local, Kait attended Massage School at the Colorado School of Healing Arts where she learned the foundations of healing bodywork as well as elaborate techniques of Deep Tissue and Stretching modalities, along with CSHA’s own Trauma Touch Therapy technique. Kait has several different Lymphatic Drainage courses under her belt and loves to educate clients on how that may further help them heal. 

Kait, like most of our staff here at Blue Water, is passionate about dogs and has two of her own. When she’s not here, she’s probably with them.
