LYNDSAY PLOURDE
Massage Therapist

LYNDSAY PLOURDE massage therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

My name is Lyndsay and I have been with BioSpirit since July 2014. I am a Holistic Health Practitioner specializing in massage therapy. I am very passionate about my career, experience and education. I go in to “work” everyday knowing that I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I feel extremely blessed to be able to make people feel better than when they first walked in the door. It is my job to improve the quality of life for every client. I am fortunate and blessed for that opportunity every day!

I thrive on using different forms of massage that focus on the needs of each client. Whether the need is to work on a recent injury or to just relax and relieve stress, I am able to listen and clearly understand what is needed by each client. My hands are the tools to alleviate the driving issues!

I specialize in Structural Integration (SI), also known as Rolfing. This is a deep bodywork technique that focuses on the connective tissue throughout the entire body. It is considered to be a corrective, clinical form of massage using soft tissue manipulation, specific movements and active stretches. There are endless conditions that can throw our bodies “out of wack”, from injuries and over compensation to emotional scars. S.I. is a successful tool in achieving physical optimal balance and ultimately allowing every system in the body to function optimally.

I enjoy the quote “Your life does not get better by CHANCE, it gets better by CHANGE.”

 

LOREN RODRIGUEZ
Massage Therapist

LOREN RODRIGUEZ massage therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

Hello! My name is Loren Rodriguez, and I have been a massage therapist since 2010. I have a great passion for therapeutic bodywork and enjoy assisting others on their physical health. I have the education and experience of all the modalities offered here at BioSpirit. Although, I really ejoy therapeutic, deep tissue and sports massage the most.

When I am not at work at Biospirit, I appreciate the time I have with family and friends and continue to further my educational background by attaining a kinesiology degree with a focus on therapeutic health. Our daily biomechanics is usually the basis of structural grievance and through massage I am able to help ease your discomfort. Also, with our wonder staff and spa environment we are able to put you in the right state of mind to aid more in your physical and mental relaxation.

TOBY SAGARA
Massage Therapist

TOBY SAGARA massage therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

Hello, my name is Toby and I have been on the BioSpirit team for over 2 years. I trained at National Holistic Institute in San Francisco and have a background in chiropractic/sports modalities that I incorporate into my own business and my treatments at BioSpirit.

A rotator cuff tear shortly after massage school taught me a lot about dealing with pain which helps me when working with our clients. The massage I am drawn to the most is therapeutic and I enjoy customizing each treatment for the clients’ current needs. Every person is different which is why I approach each session differently as well.

I moved to Lake Tahoe with my wife Paula in 2014 and feel very fortunate to continue our active lifestyle in our beautiful mountains.

 

FRONT DESK:

ALLISON MANCINI
Front Desk Concierge

Allison Mancini - Lake Tahoe BioSpirit Day Spa

I joined the BioSpirit team in early December 2015. This is a very happy place. I love the people I work with. It’s all about feeling good here!

This job allows me to continue my small business in housecleaning. Working at the Front Desk, answering phones, setting appointments and welcoming guests is a familiar job since I’ve done this kind of work at a chiropractic office and as a former insurance agent.

As a customer at any business, I appreciate being treated with respect and courtesy and that’s how I treat everyone whether in person or on the phone. Because I’m often the first and the last person a client speaks with, I want them to come in feeling welcome and leave knowing that we appreciate them.

I want to help make the Therapists and Estheticians jobs easier and smoother so they can concentrate on making our guests happy.

I love that for many of our clients, getting regular massage and/or facials is part of their routine. Feeling pampered and relaxed helps make them happy and successful in their homes and at work.
