TIFFANY CAMPBELL, founder of Kanna Spa, graduated from the National Holistic Institute in 2005, with 720 hours of training in various modalities of massage therapy (Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, Swedish, Sports, Reflexology, Prenatal, Hot Stones massage, etc.) as well as health education. Soon out of school, she worked with both a chiropractor & acupuncturist and began her journey as a therapist. Her love of the basic concepts of yoga (such as the power of breathing, body awareness, clearing the mind & focusing one’s energy within the body), & her intrigue with discovering new ways to listen to & read the body through her hands, has lead her to refine her talents as a therapist. She developed a unique style of addressing chronic body issues (such as pain, stiffness, stress & emotional holding patterns within the body) while allowing her clients to open up & achieve true relaxation through deep effective body work, patience, energy, trust, & intuition.
Tiffany practiced massage at The Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay from 2006-2011 where she benefited from working with wonderful therapists from around the world, received further training in luxurious spa-style therapies, & acquired a fine taste for quality service standards. Although she is fond of the spa setting, her most fulfilling work has been with clients who have sought after real body work versus the “typical fluffy spa massage.” She prefers to blend the two concepts & various modalities giving her clients the best of both worlds with typically more lasting results. In 2010, she opened her own part time private practice in San Mateo, California, which blossomed into a beautiful full service day spa in May of 2012. In 2019, Tiffany studied the ancient healing techniques of Cupping which she loves to blend into any massage session for greater healing, detoxification, circulation, relaxation & toning of the muscles.
It brings Tiffany great joy everyday to introduce her clients to amazingly talented therapists, unique & effective services, & a beautifully peaceful spa location.
“It is truly a great feeling when someone walks in the door grumpy, in pain & skeptical, & leaves hugging me & expressing gratitude for a unique experience, relaxation & relief from chronic pain. It’s like they are a different person when they leave my treatment room. I love a challenge. I love making a positive change in someone's well being. It’s like I can feel their energy beaming with goodness. It makes my whole day & that’s when I know I just love what I do.”
