Tiffany Umana is a licensed massage therapist from San Francisco but has resided in Sedona for the past 15 years. She studied massage at the Institute of Human Technology here in Sedona, AZ. Throughout her life, she has cultivated her passion for the healing arts and body mechanics in its myriad forms: Energy healing, nutrition, plus a variety of movement practices, most notably, gymnastics, Aikido, belly dancing, and more recently Taiji. She specializes in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, with additional skills in Anma Abdominal Massage. She helps her clients reach deep states of relaxation to enhance the natural healing process. She can also assess how compensatory movement patterns give rise to pain in the body. The result is an ability to help her clients out of pain and educate them into a more ease filled pain-free existence.



Being conscious of creating our lives is a co-creative process, when we tap into our Divine energies. We all want to see our lives in Love and Harmony. Bringing loving kindness and compassion to our environment and all who share that bubble. It can be so very important to remember who we are and what we are doing here. Sometimes a way into this powerful growing can come from understanding ourselves through a reading. My readings are an expression of you. No matter what you might think you need to know, your Guides, Teachers, and Soul have a direct message to tell you. My orientation is just that. Let’s discover together. I have been reading Tarot Cards for most of my life. There was a time when I owned a New Age store and yoga studio. My background has deep roots in Buddhism, Hinduism and just plain waking up to the Christ Consciousness we are all a part of.
