Growing up, my family would always have me massage their hands, feet, calves, back, neck, shoulders,
face.. basically a full body massage. Being my father's daughter, I am naturally very strong. My mom and
brother LOVE deep tissue massage, and without schooling, I naturally and from experience got to master
the art of massage.
By high school freshman year, I had 2-3 clients in math class, and about the same in drama. Never for
money, of course. I just loved to do bodywork. I looked into it as a career, and their statistics of length in
the industry and finances had my doubtful that this was the path for me.
I love marketing and am very independent, so I went to Shasta College for a few years while working
four jobs willingly. But after taking a break from college and settling down to focus on 1-2 jobs, I started
some critical thinking about my future. I was exerting my energy towards industries I wasn't passionate
about. I love to work, but I could have been using all my energy towards something I can call my own
and gives me the responsibility I crave. I wanted to build an empire.
In October 2013, I went to the CASA Superhero Run to support abused and neglected children.
Following the run, I saw free chair massages and waited in line for one. I started asking the lady
questions: Where did you get your schooling done? Marinello Schools of Beauty. Do you like your job?
Yes, it's rewarding and fun. Do you make enough to make your life comfortable and happy? Yes.
That settled it. I signed up for my massage therapy program at Marinello and started in January 2014.
I started my business, Jordan Fisher's Therapeutic Massage, in August 2014, immediately following
graduation. After four years, being the newly wedded Mrs. Jordan Valenzuela, I decided to expand my
family and business. My old sole proprietorship ended, and I created Shasta Strong Massage and
Wellness, LLC on Hartnell Avenue in Redding.
My husband, Zakari, and daughter Anabelle (3 years old), have been the blessings at home that make
life wholesome.But we wanted another for our developing "empire." So we welcomed baby Niko in early
August 2019. As our babies are growing, so is my business. Expansion can be scary, but we don't grow
when we stay inside our comfort zone.
I am a passionate mother, athlete, bodywork professional, and creator. I have exceptional goals and
ambitions. And even if I don't meet them all, I never want to stop learning and growing my empire.
Communication is key. I need to know what you're feeling, experiencing and what you're looking to gain in order to best help you. In turn, I will explain the treatment and what you can expect to gain from it.
My vision for Shasta Strong Massage and Wellness comes from my love for my community and also, conveniently enough, reflects my personal style of massage. I hope to bring more awareness to personal care and promote healthy lifestyle choices for Redding and the surrounding communities.
We have quite a few luxuriously comforting treatment rooms, each inspired by our majestic Shasta County landmarks and surrounding areas.
The first to your right, and the smallest room is inspired by our own Happy and Central Valleys, here in the Northstate. Valleys symbolize a time of rest. Take your time in this session to do just that.
Rivers symbolize time. The scenic Sacramento River runs 382 miles straight through Redding. If you also happen to be coming through Redding, we encourage you to take the time to enjoy yourself with a therapeutic massage and just be in the moment and mindset of self-care.
Our largest of the rooms is the Mountain Room. With Lassen 50 miles to the east and Shasta 60 miles to the north of Redding, they embody obstacles to overcome, as well as illustrate a beautiful future on the horizon. We invite our couples, friends, and pairs of family members to bond and repair yourselves, together. For your convenience, we installed ashiatsu bars in this room to provide the option for single, side-by-side, or couples' ashiatsu (barefoot) massage, as well as other offered modalities. Together, you can overcome physical and emotional obstacles by treating your bodies with a session like this.
Lakes, like water, are said to be the giver of fertility. In addition, it can represent the transitions of life. Be taken care of by our therapists in this room for a pre-, post-, or current pregnancy massage (prone,
reclined supine, or side-lying for maximum comfort). This room often smells of Young Living's "Gentle Baby" essential oil. We also allow anyone going through a major life transition to find a sense of peace
here with their session.
Very secluded at the end of the hall, with a personal restroom, is our Sky Room. Although it may not be a Redding landmark, we can't deny the beautiful skies we experience here in the country setting. The Sky Room provides a heavenly energy when experiencing any spa session.
