Maria Wintermute, NC LMBT# 18476, graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA. in 2015.

She specializes in Thai Yoga, Deep Tissue, Swedish/Circulatory, and Warm Stone massage. She is interested in pursuing continuing education in Pre-Natal and Post-Partum Massage.
Maria is a native of Durham but has also worked and lived extensively throughout Latin America and is fluent in Spanish. She has worked as a massage therapist in Holistic Centers and Spas, and established her own practices in both Guanajuato, Mexico and Santiago del Estero, Argentina.
Maria’s approach to Deep Tissue: I use postural observation, palpation, as well as personal perception to measure how deep the session will go. I add in assisted stretching and traction, apply gradual pressure, and work both generally and at specific trigger points.
