About our Massage Therapist and Massage Therapy Services on Oahu
Celeste N. Magnani, Licensed Massage Therapist & Owner
Celeste, a lifelong traveler, adventurer and reformed corporate drone, wanted to do more than her job as a Vice President of a very large bank allowed. She found herself wanting to be of service to others on a personal level. She volunteered at Habitat for Humanity and as a literacy tutor at her local library and found she loved connecting with people. Wanting to find her “true North”, she quit her job, sold her house and traveled around the USA, landing on the East Coast and attending The Massage School of Acton, MA. Here she found her bliss and a whole new world opened up. Celeste is passionate about continuing education and after graduating from The Massage School as a certified massage therapist, she ventured to Chicago, IL where she studied Oncology Massage.On her journey westward, she left Chicago and headed to California where she studied Balinese Massage. She isn’t done yet, she feels she’s just begun…
Raised in Kailua, and an alumnus of Punahou School, Celeste returned to the islands in 2010. In addition to Oncology Massage and Balinese Massage, Celeste specializes in Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage, and Integration Massage. She is also a Reiki Master and has training in Lomilomi Massage, Thai Massage, Reflexology, and Shiatsu Massage, all of which she incorporates into her Integration Massage. Celeste approaches massage just as she does life: with compassion, humor and a non-judgemental attitude. When she’s not reducing her clients to butter, she enjoys going to the beach with her dog, Truman, plate lunches, and hanging with her ohana (family) and friends.
Kneaded Bliss Bodywork
Celeste created Kneaded Bliss Bodywork as a more than a mobile massage therapy practice- she calls it Concierge Massage Therapy. It’s an experience, tailored for each client. It’s all about helping YOU, the client, find their bliss, one session at a time. Kneaded Bliss was founded on the belief that bringing the massage experience into the client’s own environment is both convenient and effective. No fighting traffic, getting dressed or having to worry about driving home when you’re in a blissful, or as some call it, massage brain, state. We come to you, set up, perform your requested massage modality, and clean up, leaving you in a relaxed state that will carry through the day.
We believe that everyone benefits from massage therapy- in body, mind, spirit. Our mission is to treat every individual with grace and dignity, and with awareness as to their specific needs both at that moment and with future goals in mind. We are in partnership with our clients to attain wellness and relaxation. We offer an openess where clients feel safe and nurtured. We are committed to continuing education as massage therapists and working with our clients to promote their participation in this powerful healing process.
