About Us

Szilvia Girincsi

Szilvia was born in Hungary, where she graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor's Degree in economic engineering. After moving to the USA, she was introduced to yoga and eventually got certified as a yoga instructor in 2005. She became a Reiki practitioner in 2008 and a Reiki Master in 2016. Szilvia initially was attuned to Reiki by Linda Miller in Illinois, 2008. A life changing experience led her to a new career path to become a Reiki healer and eventually a massage therapist, then a reflexologist.

She graduated from New Horizon School of Massage in Richland, WA in 2010. She has been in both management and massage therapist positions in spas, in a chiropractic setting and a massage franchise. She enrolled into Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center and became a certified reflexologist in 2013. She's currently serving her second term as the Administrative Secretary of the Washington Reflexology Association.

Szilvia recently started Thai Yoga Massage training with Eric Spivack in Seattle.

She has a broad knowledge of anatomy, specifically as it pertains to movement and connectivity. Her intention to help you is deeply rooted in a desire to make you move easier and with less discomfort, while working with you to increase postural awareness and efficiency. She has an intuitive touch, an innate ability to problem solve and an approach to deep tissue massage to find almost any elusive trigger points or adhesions. Her massage results in a well-balanced and intensely cared for body and soul. Through years of hands-on work, she has gained great appreciation for muscle/body allowances and a deep respect for the innate wisdom of the body. With Swedish massage as the foundation, an integrated massage approach allows for a tailored session for each client. From relaxation to more focused bodywork, trigger point therapy, stretching and/or range of motion, reflexology, deep tissue and sports massage, injury treatment, medical massage, auto accident trauma, cupping and meridian therapy,  She brings her understanding of structural issues to the treatment room.

She's one of the little over 200 certified reflexologists in the state of Washington. Her reflexology sessions are high quality and offer great techniques with lasting benefits. She's passionate to educate the public about reflexology and devotes time to volunteer for the Washington Reflexology Association to represent the profession.

She's got her cupping certification from the International Cupping Association in 2014. Szilvia also completed introductory Trager mentastics training with Joe Rodin from Seattle.

Her post-graduate reflexology training includes meridian reflexology (Teri Hoskins) as well as classes for spinal and heart related issues (Dorothe Krogsgaard, Peter Lund Frandsen of Denmark) and South-African spiritual reflexologist/'The Universal Foot Lady' Christ Stormer.

She's an avid yoga practitioner, and a devoted mother of a beautiful girl.

 She looks forward to helping you meet your wellness goals!

​Renae Favor

 

As a young girl, Renae has always wanted to help people and in 1996 she realized how she was going to accomplish that. In 1998 Renae went back to school to become a licensed massage therapist. She graduated from the Tri-City School of Massage located in Kennewick, WA, one of the oldest schools in the country.  After completion, she went on to further her education and skill set by taking advanced classes. Among those classes were cupping, reflexology and energetic healing. These areas, as well as relaxation,  are her current focus, though she continues to learn new modalities. Renae recently started Thai Yoga Massage training with Eric Spivack in Seattle.

 

Renae is also an artist with her main focus on gourd art. She creates luminaries, ornaments, masks and other items out of gourds. She has exhibited and won first and second place awards at the Washington State Gourd Society’s annual event.  She says “It’s a strange hobby but the fact that each gourd is different than the last makes it very rewarding and always interesting.” You can follow her on her Facebook page “Renae Favor, Artist.”
