Louisa Tomaio

L.Ac., Dipl. O.M., L.M.T.

Louisa is the owner/operator of DEEP Relief and has over 13 years of experience helping clients reduce pain, tension and stress, using the many tools in her tool bag.  Through the years Louisa has cultivated her craft by gathering feedback from 100s of clients and also from receiving her fair share of massages from various therapists through the years.  This feedback coupled with her personal experiences when receiving not so satisfying massages is the what shaped the foundation for the unique methods now offered to clients by the DEEP Relief team of therapists.

The “DR HIT THE SPOT” method is intended to satisfy that need to have someone find those pesky knots and spots that cause areas of nagging pain and tension, Louisa has also created a simple communication system to ensure your DR therapist is using the perfect pressure throughout the whole massage.

Finally, therapists that ask, listen and do what YOU want!

Amy L.M.T.

Amy Czigan has been a licensed Esthetician and Massage Therapist since 2009 and 2011 respectively. Gaining her education in North Texas at Hands On Therapy and Cosmetology Career Center, she worked in Dallas in spa and chiropractic environments. Moving to Austin in 2013. Her expertise includes chair massage, table, Thai movement and deep tissue. Other populations she works with include women’s retreats, children and teens with special needs, and personal clients.  Amy also continues to  advance her training in deep tissue and muscle-specific techniques on a regular basis.

Her earlier career was in the furniture restoration field, where she repaired and refinished wicker and cane furniture mastering antique weaving techniques. She feels this translates into restoration of skin and body very well, as both can be meticulous and restorative work.

Amy is careful to inquire and adjust pressure during the massage to help cater to the clients’ comfort level during the session.  Clients continue to praise her  “amazing hands”…

Tana L.M.T.

In 1984, my roommates and I attended a casual massage class, looking for relief for our own neglected bodies. It was informal, on mats, on the floor and through clothes, mostly just getting to know what felt good and what to avoid. There were 15-20 students in the class and we traded with each other throughout the class. I felt doubtful when many of my trading partners exclaimed about my touch! When, at the end of the day, even the instructor commented on my “gift”, I wondered, If I am this good and don’t know what I am doing… The rest is synchronicity! The classes, the money, the time and the instructors all came together throughout my whole career. The chiropractor who taught me anatomy and physiology with such passion, lit a fire of wonder and curiosity about the inner workings of the body and the language of pain/pleasure that it speaks and how to respond, has been my quest ever since. I share what knowledge I have with anyone who shows interest and will listen so that they, too, can respond with compassion when their body speaks to them!
I have studied modalities from light energy work , like Reiki, CranioSacral, Touch for Health, Lymph drainage and Access Consciousness -The Bars, to Medium pressure with Trigger point, Myofascial Tissue release, and Body Mobilization technique.  Specialty modalities like Hot Stones, prenatal massage, body electronics, facilitated stretching, QiGong and of course, the HIT THE SPOT method with Deep Relief. My varied “tools” serve me well, since everyone’s body, tolerance and preferences are different.
For me, the training will never end and the synchronicity still generously supplies all the possibilities! There is still Thai massage and SMRT classes, Lomi Lomi and so many more to be explored!

Cheryl L.M.T.

I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in public relations. After years of working a desk job and sitting with bad posture, I began to have neck pain like so many others in similar work environments. When I experienced bodywork for myself, I knew that helping others to feel the same holistic relief was the very thing I wanted to pursue!

I graduated from Lauterstein-Conway and became a licensed therapist. I have freelanced for several well-known massage and bodywork establishments and specialize in deep, therapeutic work. I also believe in using body mobilization techniques to increase and maintain structural flexibility. My myofascial release techniques also help to increase blood flow, which aid in relieving soreness, stiffness, and increase overall flexibility.

I am a native Austinite, with family ties to the city dating back to the 1800’s. I have deep roots and strong hands! In my spare time, you can find me lifting heavy and staying strong.
