She has been involved in all aspects of the spa industry since 1997. Her roles have included performing spa services, creating menus, training other therapists in spa modalities and managing her own private practice. "Wearing so many hats made it possible for me to see all aspects of the spa business from everyone's perspective." Liza's favorite part of the business is working with her private clients through bodywork. "Being able to witness a client's healing is a beautiful experience. It requires presence, intent, and allowance." Liza lives in San Diego with her husband Christian.

Candice Cothrine Candice_Cothrine
Candice is an Illinois native and has her Bachelors of Science in Biology from UCSD. She loves the science of Kinesiology and is constantly thrilled with what the physical body knows that the conscious mind may not. "It's amazing what can be accomplished in a session that incorporates deep breath and focused tissue manipulation. When the client is able to surrender to the breath, the muscles and tissue will do the same". Candice's allowing nature and her ability to let a bodywork session evolve without following a strict formula makes her a gifted and present therapist. Candice resides in San Diego, is a wife, a mother of 4 and is currently working towards her Masters in Midwifery.
