Co-Founder Reena Kaven started Studio Mantra to focus her energies on providing exceptional bodywork services in a nurturing community that addresses the entire person - mind and body. Reena is a Nationally Certified Massage & Bodywork Therapist (LMT, NCMBT, CMLDT, CEIM).
After years practicing law in New York City, in 2006 Reena Kaven found a new and welcoming home in Austin, Texas, where she lives with a somewhat sterotypical German, their beautiful son Cash and a dog named Angus. Having grown up in a family that was focused on health and wellness, she has continued to seek out new and different ways to nurture and aid the body in its own growth and healing processes. This quest led her to leave the practice of law and seek out a new career - her calling, if you will - as a massage therapist and bodyworker.
Reena continues to educate herself in therapeutic bodywork, continuously training and gathering more tools to provide for her clients' needs. She is a graduate of the Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage and has Advanced Training & Certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (Vodder Method), Massage Cupping, Neuromuscular Techniques and Thai Massage.
Moreover, Reena is dedicated to helping provide the best life for mothers and children. Reena studied with the premier instructor in Bodywork for the Childbearing Year - and is Certified in Advanced Prenatal, Labor and Postpartum Therapeutic Massage. Reena is also a Certified Educator in Infant Massage and offers classes and workshops on Infant and Pediatric Massage at Studio Mantra.
