About Liz Angeles

Liz Angeles is PASSIONATE about HEALTH AND WELLNESS.  Her calling began at age 17 when she started attending aerobics classes during the height of the Jane Fonda fitness craze. By age 18 she was teaching aerobics in Las Vegas and attending UNLV as a Physical Education Major with a Minor in Dance.  
     Liz is now a 27-year veteran in Massage Therapy and is currently working to expand her practice into Wellness Coaching.  Next on the agenda is learning and teaching the MELT Method by helping her clients and followers self-soothe, relieve pain and stress and promote longevity and happiness.
     Initially inducted into the world of healing in Las Vegas in 1988, she subsequently relocated to Santa Monica, where she continued her studies at the California Healing Arts College and the Southern California Health Institute.  After becoming certified and licensed, her practice thrived in Los Angeles, primarily on the west side, working in both private residences and in the most prestigious hotels, including the Four Seasons, Hotel Bel Air, Beverly Hilton, Century Plaza, Park Hyatt, and the L’Ermitage.  Liz returned to Las Vegas in 2003, expanding her practice in elite locations as the Wynn, The Hotel, Four Seasons, MGM, Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace, and the Venetian.
    Liz finally returned to Santa Monica in the summer of 2007.  Liz has been trained in Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Thai Massage, Massage Movement, PreNatal Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Harmonyum Healing.
     Over the years Liz has studied and learned several methods and innovative techniques, cleverly combining them all to provide an unforgettable experience. Add to that training her intuition and natural gift of touch, and you have what she calls a “Vicarious” Massage; the massage she would give to herself, if only she could!    
     Undoubtedly, you are sure to appreciate the level of expertise in her specialty:
A Deeply Relaxing and Thoroughly Soothing Swedish Massage. 
     Past clients include high-profile celebrities, blue collar workers, busy professionals, pregnant women, children, and even animals.  
    "I love to work the muscles to the edge, where they almost hurt, but not to the point of pain, which may well be counterproductive to the healing benefits of complete and total relaxation." 

Liz Angeles is also a published author of 45 and Pregnant.
She shares her unexpected journey of becoming a middle-aged mother and her subsequent decision to step away from the hospital herd and go inward, ultimately opting for a peaceful water birth in the comfort and privacy of her own home.  Having been through this, she has a wealth of knowledge to share with her
PreNatal Massage Clients. "When it comes to pain or stress, I'm as hyper-sensitive as they come.  If I can deliver a baby at home with no drugs, you can too."
