Hus­band, Wife Team Bring Well­ness To The Com­mu­nity

The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS - By TERESA HAMMOND tham­[email protected]­dale­leader.com

Os­car and Vanessa Moreno wish to bring well­ness to the Cen­tral Val­ley and it seems to be work­ing.

Now a year into run­ning their Oak­dale-based busi­ness, Mind and Body Well­ness, the hus­band/wife team work to­gether of­fer­ing mas­sage and holis­tic well­ness to their clients. Sit­u­ated at 730 East F St. #7, Oak­dale, the busi­ness lo­ca­tion is no ac­ci­dent. Both Os­car and Vanessa are past stu­dents and grad­u­ates of its neigh­bor­ing Holis­tic Life In­sti­tute.

Os­car, the first to grad­u­ate, en­cour­aged his wife to fol­low suit once he be­gan see­ing the suc­cess of his mo­bile prac­tice. The mas­sage ther­a­pist would travel to of­fices and homes of­fer­ing ser­vices.

“I worked on a lot of peo­ple who were im­mo­bile,” Os­car said, not­ing his wife’s per­sonal in­ter­est in holis­tic health and well-be­ing, he rec­og­nized the op­por­tu­nity.

So while Os­car brings the art and help­ful­ness of mas­sage to the busi­ness, Vanessa of­fers Cra­nial Sacral Ther­apy, Reiki, cus­tom­ized or­ganic fa­cials, as well as her train­ing as a Holis­tic Health Prac­ti­tioner.

“I just felt like I had a call­ing to it,” she said, point­ing to her per­sonal in­ter­est be­fore be­gin­ning her ed­u­ca­tion. “I started it (train­ing) and I didn’t want to leave.”

As tes­ta­ment to their pas­sion for what they do, the cou­ple shared they en­joy ed­u­cat­ing their clients as they work with them.

“We want them to leave more ed­u­cated than when they came here,” she said. “No mas­sage is ever the same; we want to per­son­al­ize it to you.”

As the mas­sage ther­a­pist of the duo, Os­car echoed her words stat­ing that as clients have re­turn vis­its, dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the body re­quire dif­fer­ent at­ten­tion.

As the busi­ness grows and their clien­tele in­creases, the cou­ple shared their goal of bring­ing a day spa which is like an oa­sis to the val­ley.

“A lot of peo­ple don’t know a lot about holis­tic health,” Vanessa said. “I feel like now peo­ple are start­ing to be­come more aware of it and they’re ask­ing ques­tions. That’s where we need to give them the right in­for­ma­tion and point them in the right di­rec­tion.”

Busi­ness hours for Mind and Body Well­ness are by ap­point­ment only, seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, to sched­ule a con­sul­ta­tion or make an ap­point­ment, call 209-3229533.
