Manita grew up in South Africa, where the palpable pain she witnessed there inspired her to reach out to others to help them heal. She found a passion for massage therapy after working as a goldsmith for six years. She graduated from the Brian Utting school of massage in Seattle in 2006 and studied Trauma Release therapy for two years with The Somatic Experiencing Institute. Manita speaks Italian and Spanish and holds her BA in Sustainable Community and Environmental Planning from the University of Washington. She teaches massage at Cortiva School of Massage and practices massage in Fremont. Manita has been chosen to join the US OPEN Golf championship Wellness Team in June 2015.
