Aides in Mental Health
(Stress, Anxiety, Depression)
Certified Massage Therapist #79777
My name is Paris Ward. I grew up and went to massage school in Hawaii almost 11 years ago. I quickly found that I wanted to help people medically/therapeutically while adding relaxation modalities to help the mind and body. After having kids of my own, my specialty expanded to the beautiful work of prenatal massage therapy and also recently adding Doula services. I worked in physical therapy for a few years and finally was able to open my own practice in 2019. Today, I continue my education and take courses to help me grow as a therapist so I can help the community of Santa Maria heal through the amazing work that massage therapy provides.
Paris is a proud member of the AMERICAN MASSAGE THERAPY ASSOCIATION and the CENTRAL COAST CHILDBIRTH NETWORK.
