Becky Ngoon has been a licensed massage therapist since 2015. She attended school at the National Holistic Institute, A College of Massage Therapy in San Jose, California. While there, she completed a 900-hour program with a variety of modalities. She was instructed in Myofascial Therapy, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports massage, Shiatsu, Thai massage, Reflexology and Energy work. The program also included anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and pathology courses.
Growing up playing sports and playing soccer at a collegiate level has added to her understanding of the body and has guided her passion for a healthy and active lifestyle. Recovering from various injuries has given her insight to the healing process along with compassion and determination to share the benefits of massage therapy with others. She believes that the right balance of activity, recovery and positive self-care practices enable the individual to be empowered, happy and healthy.
Becky specializes in a Swedish and Deep Tissue combination that relaxes the body and relieves emotional and physical stress. It is a gentle approach at first, involving breath work which enables her to slowly work deeper with minimal pain and discomfort. She also loves to incorporate aromatherapy and energy work into sessions based on clients needs.
Becky loves spending time outdoors, with her dog Elmo and with friends. Truckee has become home for her, now having been here four years. She loves running and playing soccer, skiing and snowboarding, hiking and spending time at the lake, yoga and a fairly new practice of mediation. She is starting a 200-hour yoga teacher training at the end of October. She is also very interested in studying Craniosacral Therapy and continuing to explore other types of bodywork and healing practices.
