Daniel Hernandez, Massage Therapist:

I was born and raised in Mexico. I attended Alief Taylor High School and upon graduation I attended the University of Houston. After two years I decided I needed a career change and developed an interest in massage therapy. I attended European Institute for Massage Therapy as well as Avalon School of Massage. I joined Fiori Spa in June of 2009 to share my knowledge and provide guests with balance of mind, body and spirit. My areas of expertise are Swedish massage, deep tissue, and maternity massage.

Karem Rosales, Massage Therapist

Hello! My name is Karem Rosales and I was born in Guadalajara Mexico. I moved to Houston in 1990 where I attended Hambrick Jr. High, before graduating from MacArthur High School in 1996. I took an interest in massage and attended MRC Day Spa and School in 2001. I have been massaging for 16 years. I hold licensed certification in Hot Stone therapy, Pre-Natal/Maternity massage, Sports massage, and Deep Tissue massage. My specialty is performing deep tissue massage – as I believe that it’s the most fulfilling massage to the human body due to the numerous daily stressors and life factors we encounter. I hope you will come visit me at Fiori!

Ruby Estupinan, Cosmetologist

I was born and raised in Cali, Colombia and I came to the United States in 1999 in hopes for a better life in which I have also become a U.S. Citizen. I validated the hours that I had previously completed in my home country at the Institute of Cosmetology & Esthetics and I also received my full cosmetology license and certification in nail practice. I have been a beautician for about 25 years total and I have been a staff member at Fiori Spa for 12 years as well. My favorite service to provide is a clean and thorough pedicure.

Katie Sloan, Esthetician:

I started working at Fiori Spa the beginning of2015, after moving to Texas from Portland, Oregon. Starting out at guest services and event planning, and when my license for Texas arrived, I began doing Esthetics. I’ve been a practicing Licensed Esthietician since 2002. I’m so excited about this opportunity to be at Fiori doing what I love, in such a beautiful setting. I look forward to offering luxurious and therapeutic spa facials. I’m happy to educate guests on what will be best suited for their skin type using Yonka and Hydropeptide products. I also love waxing!

Maritza Cofield, Licensed Nail Technician

I moved to Texas from Maryland about 9 years ago. I received my training at Feja’s Hair Design and Wellness Spa. I Love being a Nail Tech because I find joy in making our guest feel relaxed while washing their worries away. When I give a manicure – I don’t cut away the cuticle, I just remove the dead skin. Why? Because cutting away all the cuticle causes the cuticle to dry out and crack. I know my trade well and take pride in making sure you are well taken care of every visit! I am glad to be part of the Fiori Team. I find that this is a great opportunity to meet such wonderful guests.

Carly Manuel, Massage Therapist

I received my Massage Therapy education at “Winters School of Massage Therapy” in Houston, Texas in 1999. Prior to becoming a massage therapist, I spent 20 years studying ballet and had the honor of learning from renowned teacher/choreographer, Patsy Swayze. While working at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado, California, I became proficient in Deep Tissue Muscle Therapy. Many of my clients were America’s finest, The Navy Seals and SWCC. I believe our bodies have an innate ability to heal itself and through touch therapy, I am passionate about bringing pain relief, rest and relaxation to every client I work on. I practice integrative massage, which means I combine techniques and different modalities based on each clients needs! From deep tissue, to hot stone therapy, trigger point therapy, aromatherapy, and reflexology, I believe in the healing power of touch. My all time favorite is hot stone massage therapy. The reason being, it is so relaxing, and healing and gives the client such a sense of very deep relaxation that is hard to achieve in any other massage modality. Fiori is a beautiful spa to relax and restore your senses!

Carolyn Ostin, Massage Therapist:

I started my profession in Massage Therapy in 2002, but have studied therapy work from a very young age. I have certifications in Advanced Orthopedic Massage and Pain Management, Somatic Neuromuscular Release, Sensory Awareness, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Therapy, Deep Tissue Shiatsu I & II, Thai I & II, along with my basic training. I have applied this in rehabilitation in hip and knee replacements, frozen shoulders and hips, scar tissue, chronic tendon issues, releasing and balancing muscle groups, injuries, energy work and much more.
