About the Therapist/Owner
Carol Knop started doing massage in 1986, taking a brief break when her daughter was born. She, her husband, and daughter settled in Los Gatos in the mountain area in 1991. She went back to doing full-time massage again in 1996 and started Abintra two years later. She took the esthetics program at San Jose City College and got her esthetician's license in 2010. She is state certified and Board certified.
Carol continually learns as much as she can about massage, body work, anatomy, skincare and the effects of stress and aging and how to combat them.
She uses mostly Swedish, pressure points, and sometimes deep tissue and has a nice, intuitive touch. Every massage is customized for each individual, because everyone responds differently to various depths of pressure and techniques. Every facial focuses on making you feel and look wonderful with the same nurturing care.
Massage and facials can be an integral
part of re-conecting with your body and
stimulating your body's natural healing
abilities. You will feel nurtured, relaxed,
