Fabiana Vidal is from Porto Alegre, southern Brazil. She holds a Bachelor Degree of Arts in Social Science from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
In 1996 she traveled to Los Angeles, CA to study english and visit friends. That was the turning point in Fabiana’s life purpose. In 1999 she got certified in massage therapy at IPSB Institute of Psycho-Structural Balance, Los Angeles.
She has been a skillful massage therapist since, specialized in many techniques and modalities including, swedish, deep tissue, craniosacral, oncology and medical massage, Reiki and crystals therapy, clinical aromatherapy, among others.
Fabiana has always been interested in continuing education, leading her into becoming more knowledgeable and skilled in complementary therapies. Her own self-care practices gave her the tools to teach and support her clients on their own healing journey, and that lead her to Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program and Restorative Yoga Teacher Training.
Fabiana works at Torrance Memorial Hospital since 2012, she started as outpatient massage therapist, and since 2018 she has implemented Integrative Therapy services, providing care for oncology patients as a pilot, now she coordinates the Integrative Health & Wellness Program, providing patient care and nurse education.
She also worked for many years at a local Chiropractic Integrative Health Clinic teaching Restorative Zen Yoga, her signature class. At Palos Verdes Beach & Athletic Club she is the Senior massage therapist since 2000. In addition Fabiana has a private practice in the South Bay area as a Holistic Integrative Massage Therapist since 1999.
The Integrative Holistic Program became Fabiana's passion guiding her to share its benefits, teaching workshops at local yoga studios and wellness centers educating her clients, patients and community. Restorative Zen Yoga became her signature class in the South Bay area since 2015.
Fabiana’s work has been described by her instructors, students and clients as, “skillful, loving, compassionate, peaceful, present, passionate, devoted, authentic, intelligent, deep and caring.”
