My name is Mariana Gonzalez. I am a licensed massage therapist and a recent Graduate from Texas Center for Massage Therapy in Houston. As a passionate Massage Therapist, I understand the concept that our bodies are often capable of healing themselves if they are given the chance at homeostasis.
“A healer is not someone that you go to FOR healing. A healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal yourself”
I know how to listen, feel and respond to each individual’s needs. My unique style of bodywork fuses sports, deep tissue, Swedish and Shiatsu. It is my belief that great therapy is founded on communication. For this reason I create an atmosphere of trust, integrity, and comfort in the office. It is my goal for clients to feel entirely comfortable communicating their needs. Whether the need is the volume of the music, the brightness of the room, the pressure being used, or the specific technique being used – the more I know your preference, the better I can serve you. Please communicate to me all your requests and concerns as soon as they surface.
Glow’s mission: To be client focused through respect, integrity, honesty, and compassion and to promote health and wellness through massage and bodywork.

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Out Call* $95.00 per 60 min
Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It’s used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Combination massage is just that: a combination between Deep, Swedish, Stretching, Shiatsu.
2 hour Session only $190
Shiatsu uses a variety of manual techniques, including pressure, kneading, soothing, tapping, and stretching to access the vital Qi (pronounced “chee”). This is the vital energy in our body that underlies all functioning of the body. In the case where the client’s energy is low or deficient, the practitioner uses specific techniques to enhance and vitalize the Qi. When the client is over-stressed, wound-up, or anxious, the practitioner employs techniques to disperse the “excess” energy. In this way, the Qi is regulated. Shiatsu works to alleviate conditions, restore balance, and promote health.

Suited for individuals involved in regular physical activity or those beginning a work out regimen. The massage can be modified for pre- or post- events. We can focus attention on the areas of the body that are aggravated by specific sports or weight lifting/training, just let the therapist know the problem areas that need specific attention. (Medium to Deep Pressure)
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
