Anthony Fernandez

Massage Therapist

In 1989 I started my passion with massage therapy and exercise rehab training with a medical group that had 9 rehab facilities throughout Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside county, which I worked at all 9 as a rehab rover technician for the most difficult patients and after gaining enormous knowledge with working on patients with pre and post surgical Orthopedic, Neurologic, stroke (GAIT Training) and amputations, I moved on.

Tammy LaMorte

Massage Therapist

I have been practicing massage therapy for 19 years and absolutely love delivering a service that heals and calms both body and mind. My studies at the New York College for Holistic Health Education and Research and the masters I have been blessed to have worked with, taught me to thoroughly listen to my clients specific needs. I provide a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, shiatsu and manual lymphatic drainage, among other modalities. Massage is a necessity, not a luxury for our overall health. It is deeply therapeutic on all levels; mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical.

Jacob Lueras

Personal Trainer

My name is Jacob Lueras. I first gained a passion and interest in the fitness industry when I was 16 years old while playing football at Northview High school, APU, and Citrus College. I dedicated myself to understanding the most efficient ways to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat through proper training and nutrition throughout my football career.
My professional journey into personal training began once my collegiate football career ended. I maintained and created my own fitness programs to stay in shape, and I discovered I have a natural ability to motivate and coach others. My programs are easy to understand and manage, and anyone that follows them can gain amazing results.
