Our Therapists


Rhonda LoPresti

Massage and Hypnotherapy
Holistixs of San Diego

Rhonda Walsh LoPresti is a Holistic Health Practitioner and Hypnotherapist. A native San Diegan, she has a BA in Psychology from Scripps College, fulfilled a 1000 hour program of massage study at BodyMind College and is a certified hypnotherapist. With 23 years experience in therapeutic massage and compassionate consulting, she continues to explore personal growth and awareness processes, emotional release work and body-mind principles.

Exploring Tibetan Buddhism in the monasteries of Nepal, Rhonda has studied under Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, a Tibetan meditation master and teacher since 1987 and retreats with him annually. Her journeys have included a 6 month intensive study project of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China and a one year world tour visiting cities in Europe, Egypt, India and Thailand seeking alternative therapies and holistic healing.

Her ongoing studies and personal practice supported Rhonda in having two successful homebirths of her own. Various hypno-therapeutic techniques prepared her for conscious birth planning and natural labor and delivery. As fascinated as she is with the birth process, she has an even deeper passion in working with spiritual end of life care, inspiring and nourishing those facing terminal illness. She continues to explore programs in conscious dying and highly values the meaningful process of life celebration and resolution. As a San Diego Hospice volunteer, she has had the privilege of honoring life in all its transitions.

Private sessions with Rhonda are individually inspired and designed with the intention to address the client holistically. Creating deep relaxation, clients typically experience rejuvenation, stress reduction, meditation, preventative medicine and personal empowerment. Sessions may include therapeutic massage, deep tissue, theta-healing, breathwork, guided imagery, TFT and EFT methods, emotional release and energy work. A seeker by nature, her earnest desire is to assist you in accessing your own inner resources.

“My sincerest wish with a client is that they feel profoundly
connected, comforted and inspired in our session and
experience a transforming shift in authenticity, peace and purpose
within the enchantment of their life.”

Owner of holistixs of san diego, Rhonda celebrates a 19 year center anniversary this 2014 and her dream continues to be realized in hosting a dynamic community of professionals offering an extensive range of healing therapies for well-being and transformation.
