Welcome to Rebirth
Who We Are
Rebirth is a wellness center that specializes in massage therapy for fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum.
Everyone is welcome!
We believe that massage therapy is not a luxury, but a necessity for emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.
Massage has been used for centuries to increase fertility, speed labor, help with healing postpartum.
What Makes us different?
On top of the certification they receive in massage school, our therapists are specifically trained in fertility, prenatal and postpartum massage with extensive hours of training. Skill, positioning, anatomy, pregnancy and women’s health specific information, and hands on practice with actual pregnant and postpartum people included.
TOP OF THE LINE TRAINING
We are certified massage therapists with knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Bodywork is our second language.
The training our therapists receive is not only extensive, but the information they are taught is based on evidence that comes from the most recent research from acclaimed accreditation bodies and organizations.
EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICES
EXPERIENCE & PROVEN SKILL
Rebirth was established in 2011.
We have worked on thousands of people over the years of all shapes, sizes and walks of life.
We work with fertility clients going through IVF and IUI. The majority of our clients are pregnant, so our therapists are completely comfortable providing bodywork to pregnant women from 4 to 42 weeks along!
TRUSTED IN THE INDUSTRY
We receive referrals from doctors, midwives, acupuncturists, naturopaths, physical therapists, and chiropractors. We have been practicing for over a decade in San Diego and have worked closely with health care professionals along the way. They trust us to give quality care.
A note from the founder....
Hello, I'm Joanna Yañez, the founder of Rebirth. I am a certified massage therapist of over 13 years, an herbalist, and doula. I am an abdominal therapist certified in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™, Chi Nei Tsang, and Hara Abdominal Therapy. I also hold three different prenatal massage therapy certifications and extensive training in pre-conception- postpartum support.
I have cultivated an interest in the healing arts since my youth, beginning with my Great Aunt who is a traditional healer. Inspired by my Mexican indigenous roots, I set out on a journey to rediscover all the incredible natural medicine and healing practices in Mexico, in particular, la sobada de matriz, (womb massage). This love and passion has taken me deep into Central America where I studied with traditional healers, and Sobadores (traditional body workers). I combine my knowledge of ancient techniques with modern medicine, anatomy and physiology to provide excellent and attentive care that comes from the heart.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We hope you have a great experience.
