After years working with children, and becoming a mother of two herself, Maria decided that her true calling was in the healing profession. It became her mission in life to relieve pain and stress. Maria has the required 200+ hours of training to be massage therapist, licensed in Paso Robles. After training under and working with Ellen, the founder of Plus Massage, she decided to make it her full time endeavor to provide Paso Robles with the best massage therapy location in town.
Ellen spent many years working in a chair in a software job. She understands the dangers of sitting and living with work stress and life stress. She became a massage therapist to be able to relieve pain and stress for my clients. As a licensed California Massage Therapist (#53469, for those who care), trained at the California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo, Upledger Institute and other providers, she is certified through the California Massage Therapy Council and a member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP).
Her philosophy: every hour spent on the table is a moment in time where healing can occur and the experience of peace can be expanded. She started Plus Massage to promote world peace, one hour at a time.

Let’s Save the World
Life is good but it can be better with a massage. Life + Massage = A Better Life!
Massage is good for you… it relieves pain, lowers your blood pressure, increases circulation, helps you sleep at night, encourages healing and builds immunity. Bodywork can adjust and correct little problems that create annoying pain, making your daily life that much easier and more enjoyable. Massage can improve your ability to relate to others, as well as to your own mind, spirit and body.
Craniosacral is also good for you… in a different but not-so-different way. To quote Kate McKinnon, a respected Craniosacral therapist:
Craniosacral therapy is a highly effective light-touch therapy that works with the whole body and the source of pain and dysfunction simultaneously. With CST and given proper support, the body will heal itself, creating a custom solution to any problem that is causing discomfort.
Therapists place their hands over the area of the body that is most related to the source of the problem and they are trained to feel and monitor changes in the body’s tissues. In the process of monitoring, therapists hands follow changes in the client’s body as it occurs rather than making the decision to move a person’s body in any given direction.
This is the principal difference between CST and most other therapeutic types of bodywork.
Bodywork brings healing and understanding. Let’s face it… if everyone took good care of themselves, including a regular massage, the world would be a better place. Yep, you guessed it… self care can save the world! Do your part for world peace!
We look forward to meeting you!
