Irene moved to Texas from Brazil in 2002 and earned her license in massage therapy a couple years later. Shortly after, she moved to Australia for for four years and earned her degree in esthetics. Since then, she has lived and worked as a massage therapist in London, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and America. We are so happy she found her way back to Houston!
Irene’s style makes use of her training as a yoga instructor by incorporating facilitated stretching and offering take-home stretch techniques to enhance the benefits of her massage sessions. Irene discussed pains a client may be having, observes tension in the muscles and tailors her suggestions to the client’s needs. She is also skilled in Thai massage.
Her training in lymphatic massage can be helpful to anyone suffering from lympedema or swelling. She is also trained in prenatal massage. Irene likes to use her esthetic skills by finishing a session with a relaxing facial massage.
An interesting piece of Irene’s life is that she still operates a bed and breakfast spa in the beautiful mountains of Brazil where they perform many different treatments. Irene is mother to an awesome 17 year old son, and we are so happy to have her as part of the Zalla family now!
