Meet the founder

Elk Hills Massage and Bodyworks was founded in 2014 by Sybil Riipinen with the purpose of bringing pain relief, relaxation, and a state of well-being to her patients.

Sybil has always had a love for the outdoors, wildlife, farm animals, and health. Her dream was to start a farm so she went to massage school as a means to earn an income that would fund her passion for farming. During her studies she became so intrigued with the many benefits of massage and the life changing difference she could make in people’s lives that she decided to make massage therapy a lifelong career.

Sybil has experience and knowledge of the use of a wide range of massage and spa techniques including Zen Triggerpoint, Zen Bodytherapy, Ayurvedic Massage & Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue Lomilomi Massage, Cupping Massage, and Active Isolated Stretching. She finds great joy when she is able to identify the source of her clients’ pain and then sees the relief on their faces as they feel that pain disappear.

Interesting facts about Elk:

Elk are one of the most “regal” animals of North America and found in the country’s western mountain ranges. They are considered an animal of great strength, power, and stamina. It is believed that if an elk comes into your life that it can mean you are overdoing it, you are about to hit your stride, and it’s time to slow down and pace yourself. The elk is a sign of perseverance to keep pursuing your desires and allow yourself time to see the peak of your success.
