More about us

I have had neuropathy pain for many years and have been looking for a natural way to deal with my pain. I discovered Cranio Sacral therapy through a friend. I was having a pretty bad pain flare and decided to try it out. I went to Denise for a 90 minute treatment and to my delight I left pain free! I have not been pain free in years! I feel everyone should experience Cranio Sacral therapy! Thank you Denise!!” Banetta B, Auburn CA

I highly recommend Jessica for anyone who wants bodywork whether it is massage or craniosacral. Her intuition, grounded presence, and quiet patience allows the body to unwind on emotional, spiritual, and physical levels and opens the door wide for healing and balance. A truly deep healing experience.  ~Heidi Hook, ND Auburn CA
“I initially scheduled a CranioSacral Therapy and Integrative Massage appointment with Denise Obray…just as a “treat” to myself.  I also mentioned that a decade’s old shoulder injury had recently returned leaving me unable to do simple things like write or hold a book for any length of time  The first two treatments were relaxing and comforting.  I expected the same of the third session.  Instead, I was amazed!  I left the office without a hint of pain, and have been pain-free for the nearly two weeks since!”Layne Hackett, Auburn CA

I’ve been to several massage therapists over the last three years. So I’ve been able to experience a range. Awaken was warm, welcoming & very comfortable. The atmosphere is inviting, the physical building is small but very cute. The massage therapist was very interested in what I needed and what my boyfriend was looking for in his massage (for we received a couples massage). The physical tables and pillows for the face rest were very comfortable, I’ve been to some places where they do not have very comfortable equipment. Over experience was fantastic! The massage was just what I needed. I will for sure be going back. -Blaire B., Roseville CA

One word…. AMAZING!!!!!
Jessica has been my massage “guru” for a while now, but I have had the pleasure of Shannon’s artful touch recently both in deep tissue and my first Thai Massage. What skillful, thoughtful, and caring souls they both are. A office of warmth welcomes you….
Jessica’s Cranial Sacral treatments are SO POWERFUL and grounding. She is able to create that balance in life that we are all trying to accomplish. Her intuition is truly spot-on. Let her read/feel your body. Her intuition, along with your input makes you the client more aware of your own bodies needs. “Listen” and your body will answer.  Shannon is PURE DELIGHT. Her deep tissue massages are very artfully placed “into” your body in a way that when you leave the table you are less stressed, less tense, but energized in a way that is subtle. Her giving to the client in her massage technique is definitely unique and once you experience it, it will be something that you look forward to again. To describe a Thai Massage is like being enveloped in a warm strong embrace that soothes the soul and stretches out those kinks in all those nooks and crannies we all seem to carrying around with us. Her LOVE of her massage is evident in her delivery to you the client.~J.Q, Auburn CA

Her hands are like magic, she fixed my headache. Very soothing and relaxing and I can’t wait to go back. ~Delaney, age 11 (about Denise)

I loved my pre-natal massage with Shannon! She has a great touch. She worked on my problem areas but also touched on other areas, leaving me feeling refreshed and very relaxed! I honestly felt like I was floating away on a cloud. It reminded me I need to treat myself to massages more often. The studio is very welcoming and calming.  I will be back and I would recommend it. -Hannah K., Meadow Vista CA

“Jessica reads bodies- at least mine! I had my first body work treatment last week and I made my follow up appointment right then. Jessica is very insightful and was able to relieve neck and shoulder pain that I have been living with for awhile. I’ve had many massage treatments in my life but body work is different. Her technique addressed a deeper level of stress and I came away feeling relaxed, yet rejuvenated as well. Thank you, Jessica.”  ~Nancy V, Meadow Vista, CA

“Jessica gave me prenatal massages 1-2 times per month throughout my entire pregnancy. As a result, I had no lower back pain (even towards the end), which most pregnant women experience. She is also extremely knowledgeable on the body and really knows what she’s doing whether you are pregnant or not. I continue to see her and now she helps me with my back aches from carrying a growing child! I highly recommend her!” ~Amber Kocal, Auburn, CA

Jessica delivers a most fabulous massage! She embodies intuitive touch – her hands seem to know just where to go and what to do and what pressure for the entire length of the massage! She exudes joy and calm and trust from the second you walk into her nourishing space. Her positive mood permeates the experience, only adding to the pleasure, relaxation and release of stress and tension. I recommend her VERY highly! My only complaint is that everyone else loves her too and I can’t have her all to myself!! :)~ Sonika Tinker, MS, Meadow Vista, CA

I drag into the office for my massage.  Jessica soothes my tired aching muscles.  She has a knack for finding tender spots that I am not even aware of.  I would like to say that I walk out of the office feeling energized and refreshed, but the truth is that I am so relaxed that I can hardly make myself move from the massage table.” – Janet McMartin, Auburn, CA

“I have had the privilege of calling Jessica my massage therapist for almost a year now.  I have, through the years sought out the assistance of a massage therapists and I find many things exceptional about my experience with Jessica. First, she is modest and respectful of her client’s modesty.  This immediately puts you at ease.  Then, she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. In the past, I could expect a massage to pretty much be the same each time. With Jessica, I swear she finds new muscles to work each session.  I am currently confined to a wheelchair and I sought her assistance in helping me to move and stretch areas I could not currently do on my own.  I find that with her help, I have increased my flexibility and range of motion.  Highly professional would be another two words to describe Jessica.  Many therapists I have visited in the past have used the sessions to unload their life’s burdens.  With Jessica, you do not get that mental dump. Instead, the focus does remain on you.  It’s a session focused on your breath, your comfort, your experience and your growth.  It isn’t surprising that with such a focus one can become aware of things that one may need to clean up in one’s mental house.  Relaxing, you find, means letting go. In the quiet of your breath you can end up discovering things from within that also need addressing, thus making this quiet and focused time not only relaxing, but empowering as well. I really wish all my friends and family could experience her gifts and talents.” KK Grass Valley, CA

“I am an RN who looks forward to visiting Jessica for my massage not only to relieve my chronic back pain (a result of my job) but also the pain in my arthritic hands.  My experience has always been without stress and is very relaxing and therapeutic.  I look forward to my visits knowing that I can achieve relief.”!~P.C. Auburn CA

“Jessica is the best. Whenever I am in Sacramento I make it a point to make the drive to see her for an appointment: it’s absolutely worth it. She is an expert at therapeutic relaxation and for someone like me who bears the result throughout my body of spending hours in front of a computer, one appointment with Jessica works wonders. Tension in my shoulders, arms, upper and lower back, and stress overall just melts away. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a massage practitioner to visit on an ongoing basis. I can only imagine what the effect of being able to see her once a week would be.”Greg Bennick, Seattle WA – www.gregbennick.com

“I am grateful as I am beginning to learn how to relax! I am new to massage therapy and have found it beneficial in learning how to breathe properly. Currently confined to a wheelchair, Jessica is able to work on me right in my chair! With all my clothes on !”~JK Grass Valley, CA
