Owner & Massage Therapist
Reena Kaven started Mantra Massage (fka Studio Mantra) in 2015 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) since 2012.
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 and Neuromuscular Techniques.
Moreover, Reena is dedicated to helping provide the best life for new mothers. Reena studied with the premier instructor in Bodywork for the Childbearing Year - and is Certified in Advanced Prenatal, Labor and Postpartum Therapeutic Massage.
Starting in September of 2020 Reena we will continue the massage legacy of Studio Mantra in a slightly different format. Reena Kaven will take over the entirety of the current Studio Mantra space and reopen it as Mantra Massage. This newly revamped space will expand to seven treatment rooms and continue to offer massage and skincare with the services that you've come to love, along with several new and exciting offerings!
Reena hopes that you continuing to enjoy your massages and facials in a new, beautiful and safe space and is looking forward to seeing you in person soon!
