Iris Leutenegger, Certified Massage Therapist and owner of Serenity Massage believes that Massage Therapy should be an integrative part of preventative healthcare for everybody. She believes that the whole body is connected and likes to address it as a complete system while focusing on the client's specific needs. Iris specializes in Deep Tissue and Sports massage, but she also offers Pre and Post natal Massage, Swedish Massage, and Traditional Thai Massage. Recently, she is incorporating a new style into her work, called Ashiatsu. This amazing modality involves holding on to an overhead bar and using gravity to apply pressure with the therapist's feet. Often she will incorporate multiple styles into each session.
Having been an athlete all her life it seemed natural to Iris to pursue a career as a Massage Therapist. Being a marathoner, and Ultra Marathon runner, she fully understands the needs of today's athletes and will adjust her treatments according to her client's training and race schedule. Iris also uses her experience in the Napa Spa world to ease her clients into a complete state of relaxation and calm.
Iris has practiced Massage Therapy in Switzerland as well as the United States. She graduated from Cellsan in Switzerland and MTI in Davis with over 1000 training hours. She is licensed by the California Massage Therapy Council. She is also a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). In her spare time, Iris likes to run, ride horses, hike, swim, cook and spend time with friends and family.
