Healing Modalities

Most of our health issues come from deep-seated stress, physical and emotional trauma. As we take time out to breathe deeply, relax and let our selves be nourished, we can reboot our systems, refresh our minds and renew our commitment to live our highest intention.

"Healing comes as we choose to release the pain of our past and cultivate the trust that returns us to innocense – an innocence that is reborn in wisdom"
- Elysabeth Williamson, founder of Principal-Based Partner Yoga

About Ninaya


Ninaya Strandberg, Watsu and Nutritionin Santa Barbara, CaliforniaBorn in Sweden, I settled in California twenty-five years ago in order to deepen my study of the many aspects of natural healing. I am a holistic health educator and I specialize in healing with warm water, primarily through Watsu and colon therapy.

After decades of study in various holistic disciplines, I have refined a program in which I work one on one with my clients to develop a protocol for physical and emotional cleansing.

My healing sanctuary is nestled in Santa Barbara’s beautiful Mission Canyon. I like to work with people who are ready to take responsibility for their health and well-being. My strength is in supporting such a journey with knowledge, wisdom, compassion, humor, and gentle prodding.

Having home-birthed two healthy children, I have a particular interest in working with women preparing for and moving through pregnancy and birth. The health of a mother’s tissues is crucial in the healthy development of a child. The cleansing process is continuous, as life is cyclical, so I continue to work with mothers, fathers, and their babies, after the birth.

Through the basics of massage, proper nutrition, exercise, colon therapy, and watsu healing, I will effortlessly guide you toward a healthier, stronger, more sure and stable sense of your self, so you’re able to be what you were born to be in this world.
