Since that time, it's become a lifestyle and a career.

David Warder, Owner, HHP, Instructor

David Warder at ZEN Sanctuary San Diego's #1 Wellness Center for Massage, Skincare & AcupunctureDavid was brought up in a household with holistic values, where massage was used every day as first aid to all forms of ailments. By high school he had built the habit of self-treatment and internalized the simple principle of "push where it hurts". His experience with the benefits of bodywork lead him to continually tout the power of massage to those around him, and quite naturally he decided to hone his own skills with formal training earning both California and National certifications.

Now a specialist in Triggerpoint Therapy and Zen Shiatsu, two modalities with polar opposite approaches, he is able to go far beyond the "push where it hurts" concept to search out the root causes of imbalance which may be hiding far from the symptoms. He is naturally drawn to a more therapeutic and problem-solving approach with his sessions, but feels strongly that the work must be kept in a comfortable range rather than the "no pain, no gain" attitude found elsewhere. For those looking for a more relaxing visit, David usually draws on the continuous and hypnotic techniques found in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Very similar to Swedish, Lomi is a circulatory massage that uses oils to soothe away the stresses of the day.

From Olympic and high school athletes to pregnant mothers and businessmen, David is able to find the right treatment for each client. He can help whether your goal is to avoid a surgery, balance a workout routine, reduce the impacts of a long flight, smooth emotions after a loss, or so much more. Feel free to directly call or email with any questions.

When not in session, David spends his time at his home in Normal Heights with his wife, Leah, and two wonderful daughters, Willow and Aspen. He also teaches Zen Shiatsu and Triggerpoint Therapy at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health.

Jeanne Marie Auger, HHP, Instructor

Jeanne Marie Auger at ZEN Sanctuary San Diego's #1 Wellness Center for Massage, Skincare & AcupunctureJeanne Marie Auger has been a practitioner of massage therapy and energy healing since 1985, a practitioner of bodywork since 1993 and of CranioSacral Therapy since 2010.

She is ‘Board Certified’ by the ‘National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork’ (NCBTMB), having fulfilled its highest and most rigorous standards. She is also certified by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) and is a member of the Upledger Institute International.

She has well over 2000 hours of training from different schools in Montreal – Canada, Long Island – New York, and California. In 2003, after 20 years of personal yoga practice, she also got certified as a yoga instructor and extensively uses the understanding gained through this practice, in complement to other principles of bodywork and energy healing. Additionally, in 2009, she was certified as a hypnotherapist.

She has experience working in a variety of settings such as massage therapy centers, high-end spas, in partnership with a chiropractor and, for the most part, in personal practice. As a result, she has been blessed with a broad spectrum and variety of clients, providing her with the opportunity to approach the work from many different angles as well as a framework for continual learning and growth.

Complementarily, since 1983, Jeanne Marie has been exploring through writing and creative arts (dance and painting). Her aim has been to foster an outlet and engage the authentic self where it has had no other possible avenues of expression. She has also been developing and practicing different forms of body-mind exercises and meditations aimed at sharpening her sense of perception, awareness and discernment in order to gain greater clarity and understanding of what she experiences through her work in particular and through her own body, mind and spirit at large... being empathic and highly sensitive to the vast variety of impressions and potential influences she is therefore subjected to has brought her on a path of continual exploration in passionate pursuit of truth and reality, which she has come to realize is spoken loud and clear through the body’s different manifestations, and more often than not at its own cost, until it is consciously acknowledged and properly dealt with.

The means by which she has sought to bridge the gap between what is manifested in the body and the conscious awareness has greatly challenged and readjusted her world-view and approach to healing and bodywork, and day by day, she continues to follow her passion and further her education, researches and exploration of the body mind & spirit and of the individual within its physical, social and spiritual environment.

Jeanne Marie will be very pleased to answer any questions you may have and assist you in achieving greater holistic health and well being.... She is looking forward to working with you…See you soon!
