Dorene’s resume 

Professional Member of the American Massage Therapy Association since 1995.

Nationally Certified for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 1995.

Certified Sai Shakti Healer and Facilitator.


For over 20 years I have worked with people, developing an intimate relationship with bodies. The combination of education, years of experience, and intuition allows me to connect on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels. I gently assist my clients toward balance- never forcing or pushing but leading and guiding toward highest functionality. Each session is uniquely designed for the moment.  No two sessions are exactly the same.

Offering Myofascial Release since 1996 as well as painless, noninvasive Deep Tissue Massage since 1994. Specializing in injury recovery and difficult cases. I have worked with people from all walks of life and all ages, the healthy and health challenged. I have helped all levels of athletes, both on event sites and clinically, to  stay injury free and optimize their potential.

My new love is Lymphatic Drainage Therapy. This method works with moving and draining liquid watersheds found everywhere in our body, except for a few places where no blood vascularization is present. We are anywhere from 50 to 75% water, depending on our age, sex and health.


Oncology Massage: Safe circulatory, lymphatic, myofascial and energetic practices for cancer survivors whether currently in treatment or post treatments. Special knowledge and attention is provided for each specific case whether it be scarring, medical devises, medications, edema, lymphedema, deep vein thrombosis, neuropathy, or simply fatigue, all situations are taken into consideration and adjusted accordingly. (I do not treat lymphedema but can refer you to someone who does.)

Sai Shakti Healing:

Working directly with the Soul through ancient healing techniques found in 1000’s of year-old Vedic Palm Leaf books, as shared and taught to me by Sri Sai Kaleshwar Swami. Methods include mantra (sacred words) , Yantra (sacred pictures) and energy transference through shaktipat. Also the Five Elements are utilized- each with it’s specific quality, to return the Soul to it’s natural state of harmony and peace in nature.


Five Elements: Earth, Fire, Sky, Water and Air- to understand and utilize their properties, for the purpose of enhancing our lives. Knowing their qualities, how we can Decharge stress and charge our souls are explored through three-hour classes. CEU’s available.

Class Fee: $45

(See Sai Shakti page for more information).

Bodywork Fees: (I have consciously kept my prices low to promote optimal availability for all.)

$80 for one-hour-fifteen-minute session; $90 for one-hour-30-minutes

Dancing and Singing:

The Dances of Universal Peace are a beautiful and safe environment to connect, not only with our own hearts, but also the hearts of our community. We currently gather at the San Luis Obispo Library  once monthly to sing and dance.

We also meet in a private home to sing simple spiritual songs that open our hearts to the Divine Energy already residing inside of us.

Kirtan: devotional singing with our band The OmTonez— look for our up coming schedule!
