About Us

Paul Zagala

Certified Massage Therapist

Paul has been doing massage on an intuitive level from the time he was 10. It has always come naturally to him. When he began formal training, he knew this was what he wanted to focus his life around. He has a great knowledge of physiology and corrective techniques. His massages usually incorporate relaxing techniques along with various therapeutic modalities to allow for maximum healing. He is best know for deeper therapeutic and restorative body work but has refined skills in relaxation and stress reduction as well.

Over the years Paul has developed his own unique style he calls "Muscle Tracing". While he "traces" over  your muscle tissue he massages the muscle while using his highly developed palpation skills to feel for congested tissue and myofascial adhesions. When issues in the tissue are found, they are addressed using the appropriate modality then move on to continue this process throughout the rest of the body.

Jeremiah Zagala

Licensed Massage Therapist

Jeremiah received an early start on the world of body therapy working under Paul's guidance as a father and mentor. Following in his footsteps through school and business, he has found his own path to becoming a skilled massage therapist. Building off of the foundation set by his predecessor, he found his specialty in medium-depth work that effects deep into the layers of connective tissue. With the strength to match any request, his preference is to satisfy deep tissue with energy-guidance rather than brute force. Leaning towards parasympathetic sessions, Jeremiah can address many requests throughout the body.

Swig Miller

Certified Rolfer

Swig loves Rolfing more today than he did when he started his practice over 20 years ago. His work began in Boulder CO, where he graduated from The Guild for Structural Integration in 2001. From there he moved to Santa Monica where he grew a very successful practice. In 2022 Swig decided to break from the busy city life and move his practice up to Santa Barbara, which has been a favorite place of his since he graduated from UCSB.

Swig describes his style as being very slow, very deep, and very intuitive. His clients have often asked how he knows what going on with their bodies so accurately, with a smile he says, 'your body told me'. He says that his gift is to be able to listen to one's body and give it what it wants. 'Think of a kinked garden hose, once you remove the kink water can flow more easily. Sitting at a computer or lots of driving creates a similar 'kink' in the body. The intention of Rolfing is to bring the body into alignment, creating order such that the body is free from pain, acts more efficiently and feels better.'

My 10 series service:

Freeing the torso, shoulders, neck, and head, and beginning work on the pelvic girdle and hips.
2. SUPPORT:
Working on the feet and legs, and connecting the support into the spine.
3. LATERAL LINE:

4. CORE SUPPORT & AWARENESS:
Working on the inner line of the body through the inside of the legs and the pelvic floor and spine.

This is primarily an abdominal session. I may go a little into the ribs, depending on the client, but it’s mostly the abdomen.

Working on the back with client face down from the feet to the low back.
7. HEAD & NECK:
Creating balance and ease into the shoulder girdle. This is a vital component regarding the ownership of length and lift in the body.

Both sessions 8 and 9 offer an opportunity to locking in alignment that continues to hinder freedom of movement.
