Mar Osorio – LMT
Hello Hello! My name is Maricel and I prefer Mar. I am Colombian, adopted in 2000 and have grown up in Madison, Wisconsin ever since. After I g
raduated High School , I attended Madison College and joined the Therapeutic Massage Program with an interest and wanting experience in anatomy. I decided to challenge myself and learn more about the human body in success to find answers about my sciatica. I was suffering from sciatica in both hips from natural hyper-mobility, over stretching, and in general dancing to my limits. For years I kept receiving integrated treatments such as sports massage, craniosacral work, occupational work, integrated massage, chiropractic care, physical therapy, etc. Finally in June 2014, I went to Italy for 2-3 months to dance and clasped during Modern class due to loosing feeling in both my legs from an extreme sciatic flare up. I received sports massage, clothed therapeutic massage, electro-therapy stimulating cell growth, and chiropractic care. Since then, I have not had a problem with my sciatica in sense of dancing and everyday life. I was so appreciative and grateful for having the treatment I did while in Italy, that I wanted to learn more about how to help others with their conditions. Whether it be a disease, muscle pain, joint pain, general relaxation, mental illness, prenatal, etc. I wanted to learn how to help the human body connect with the mind and better knowledge myself and others. I am still in the process of becoming my own massage therapist in means of finding my strengths and imbalances. I hope to offer every individual that comes on my table the best relaxation, mind-body connection, and deep gratitude for themselves. I am thankful for working at A Healer’s Hand and helping you fulfill your stress free and relaxation goals.

After growing up in Wisconsin, I decided to get out of the cold and move to the sunny Santa Monica, California. After settling down in So Cal, I started going after my life long dream of working in the beauty industry. Where I could help woman to look and feel their best. I began doing makeup for weddings, special occasions, and auditions. But after getting my Esthetician’s license, I found myself in the middle of the lash extension phenomenon. I’ve always had a thing for lashes. I carry mascara like some woman carry lipstick. One day after seeing a photo of lashes that were so incredible, I literally had chills—I had found my passion!
For the last two years I’ve been helping clients to love how they look from the moment they wake up, until they brush their teeth and smile at their lashes in the mirror, before heading to bed. I create a unique lash look around each client’s desires to assure everyone leaves feeling beautiful! So Cal was great, but the Midwest called me home. Now I’m ready to share everything I learned in a city where woman take their looks very seriously, even on camera.
