Camille DeSantis, NCLMBT #4519, received her massage therapy license in 2004 after graduating from The Body Therapy Institute in Siler City, NC. Her work as a massage therapist is informed by a kinesthetic understanding of the body through her training as a contemporary dancer. She listens to the needs of each client and customizes the session for each individual. Camille encourages clients to breathe more deeply and connect more fully to their physical body to let go of tension. She specializes in Prenatal Massage and Deep Tissue but also enjoys offering Fertility Massage and deep relaxation through Swedish Massage.
In addition to holding Prenatal Massage Certification, Camille also offers support to mothers through pregnancy and birth as a Doula (birth partner.) She received her training through DONA in 2006 and is honored to assist mothers in labor.
Camille completed Prenatal Yoga Teacher training at Blue Point Yoga in Durham, NC and enjoys teaching prenatal and partner classes for birth preparation and postnatal classes with baby. Her instruction is informed by her massage and doula training. She encourages using the breath to inform the body’s movement and release areas of restriction. Camille supports the practice of listening to and honoring your own body’s needs. With a personal yoga practice for over 15 years, her instruction is rooted in a deep interest and investigation of her own body and health.
Camille’s Deep Tissue Technique ::
In my deep tissue massage I use broad, sustained strokes while encouraging deep breaths into the tighter or more tender points to help facilitate softening of the muscle tissue. I also include medical massage which utilizes postural assessment to determine where there may be dysfunction in the muscles or active and passive stretching to encourage greater range and ease of motion. Each session is customized for the individual client. My belief is that deep work does not have to be painful and each person’s “deep” may be different. For this reason, I check in throughout the session about pressure and comfort, adjusting when necessary. My goal as a therapist is to offer relief from chronic tension, enhance my clients general sense of well-being and provide information for effective self care to help maintain comfort in their everyday experience.
“I look forward to meeting you and hope to be an asset on your personal journey to greater peace, health and wellness. I am honored to work with you.” — Camille
