Meet Victoria Tugwell

My intention for each healing session is to be focused, guided by intuition and intentional touch, to promote a whole-body healing experience unique to you or  companion animal.


Victoria started as a qualified veterinary nurse with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons UK in 1987.  While working in the veterinary field, her roles have included managing the smooth running of hospital teams and surgical teams, training nurses, and starting/growing a satellite veterinary practice. She currently works in a number of holistic veterinary hospitals in the SF East Bay.

 Her passion and curiosity for muscle energetics, movement and healing began in 2007. Being an active participant in many sporting activities, and after different injuries and many frustrations, her focus turned towards injury prevention and functional movement. This lead her to become a Licensed massaged therapist and Reiki Master.  She has studied Five Element Theory of Chinese Medicine, Bowen Therapy, Distance Bowen Therapy, She is a Yomassage Therapist graduating with Honors.
