Located in scenic Incline Village, Nevada near the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe, San Soma is a retreat from the stresses of everyday living. Founder and skilled massage therapist Denne Babbin-Simon brings more than 25 years of experience to San Soma, taking massage therapy in Incline Village far beyond simply working tired muscles. Our name was created to match our focus. San meaning healthy and Soma meaning body, we help to create healthy bodies in the clients we serve. We understand that the vitality of a healthy body helps us perform well at work and recreation. Through a massage by Denne Babbin-Simon at San Soma, we work to create increased balance and well-being in the lives of all of our clients.
San Soma is located within The Lotus Center, which also houses Lotus of The Lake, another massage therapy business, and Nalini Studio, a holistic facial and yoga business. By working together, our three businesses provide clients with more opportunities for health and well-being through the increased services we are able to offer.
Our team consists of Denne Babbin-Simon, owner of San Soma; Carolyn Witt, owner of Lotus of the Lake; and Jesalyn White, owner of Nalini Studio. A few other select therapists also work in the center as needed.
From all of us, we are looking forward to having you as our guest at The Lotus Center.
