Having been a weekend warrior most of my working life, instead of slowing down in retirement it has provided the time to abuse myself even more. So meeting Lois and addressing my aches and pains is priceless. She is as warm and engaging as she is knowledgeable in massage. A session with Lois will prove what a jewel we have in the Ojai valley.

I knew Lois gave a special massage since my first time with her. I'd been suffering from a whiplash from a car accident a year before I'd seen her and it was still bothering me. I am never afraid when Lois works on my neck; she is so knowledgeable of muscles and posture. She does resistance moves to improve my neck's flexibility, something no other massage therapist has done for me. She has also improved some other issues such as an old shoulder injury and low back pain. I have been working with her for two years and between her and my chiropractor I don't have any symptoms of whiplash anymore.

I've been seeking pain and stress relief through massage therapy with Lois for over a year. I'm deeply grateful for her extraordinary dedication and skills. She is the best massage therapist in Ojai and the best I've ever been to!
Lois makes me feel relaxed the moment I see her-she is so kind and thoughtful. I value her communication on and off the table, as we're able to work together in the process of what I feel is healing and restorative. As a mental health counselor, I cherish each moment Lois is intentional, respectful, and intuitive in using her knowledge, heart, positive energy, and skills with the body's many systems.
Lois is strong and gentle in her focused massage therapy. She makes an effort to help educate me on my posture to relieve pain as well as stretches I can do throughout my body. With a long commute during the week, this has made a world of difference.
The healing body work Lois does stays with me for weeks and feels like it keeps expanding the more I see her. Without a doubt, Lois is a blessing in my life. I'll always be grateful-thank you Lois!

I’ve been to many massage therapists in the last 25 years since I injured my neck at work. Many of them were excellent practitioners.We recently moved to Ojai, and I was faced with finding someone as good as my therapist in Colorado. My first try was dismally unsuccessful.Then I had the wonderful fortune of making an appointment with Lois. I immediately found her to have a great, intuitive feel for finding trouble spots. The most amazing thing about Lois’ work is that the beneficial effects – including two long-standing,very painful areas – weren't just “quick fixes” and are no longer an issue for me. Six weeks after the fact, the problems have not returned. I am able to do things that formerly caused me pain. This is one of the remarkable differences that puts Lois heads above the other therapists I’ve had over the years.

I have been to well over a dozen masseuses over the years and have experienced a wide range of massage techniques. That said, I have continued to search for a masseuse that possesses the right combination of skill, knowledge, professionalism, strength, personality all while keeping in mind the goals and objectives of the person receiving the massage. With my first visit to Lois Dominguez I began to think I might have found the right masseuse. Subsequent visits confirmed it.
Lois is incredibly knowledgeable about the anatomy and structure of the human body. In some ways her techniques remind me of the way professional trainers will work with athletes to improve their body mechanics. With each massage I come away with progressively improved healing and energy that has greatly reduced pain that I have carried for years. She's a real find.

"When Lois came to me I was in bad shape and couldn't even turn my neck due to an old injury that flares up once in a while. After a wonderful massage I was amazed that my neck was back to normal and I could move it with no pain. I couldn't believe it; I was so grateful. I highly recommend her to everyone, she has magic hands."
