My Story

Since I was quite young I have appreciated self-care and mind-body practices as an integral part of maintaining health and being a happy human.

Since 2001 I have been a yoga teacher and since 2007 a licensed massage therapist. I also have a background in teaching for massage therapy students and continuing education for massage therapy professionals. I love helping people feel their best and I love seeing students achieve their goals.

My favorite massage modalities to practice are table Thai massage, reflexology, herbal compress, hot stone, prenatal, sports, and deep tissue massage. I first became interested in becoming a licensed massage therapist after studying Thai massage which incorporates passive stretching and energy work with the effects of deep relaxation, pain management, improved energy, and overall well-being.

My education & training includes Bachelor of Fine Arts UNC-Charlotte, Yoga Alliance Teacher Training, Massage Therapy License, NCBTMB Continuing Education Provider, Advanced Thai Yoga Bodywork Certificate, Reflexology Certificate, Clinical Application of Pure Essential Oils Certificate, Prenatal Massage Certificate & several other modalities. I love learning & will continue to serve clients by being a life-long learner.

For the past few years I have been channeling my creativity into creating amazing handcrafted aromatherapy products for relaxation and self-care. I opened Essentially Wellness Boutique with the mission of creating and helping others feel their best.

In 2023, I have shifted my focus into the creation of Fernanda Wellness Services with the intention of in person on site services for individuals and groups.

I look forward to see you soon for your health and wellness needs.
