About

Benessere Fresno is a space with a unified team of restorative practitioners who provide services to cultivate balance, peace and enhance quality of life.

Meet the team

A community that aspires to improve and support well-being. With a convenient location in Downtown Fresno where you can enhance your own positive and restorative well being through self-care professionals, varied classes and workshops.

Juggling career and family is a challenge and balance can seem elusive. We are often adjusting and re-adjusting to many roles simultaneously: Daughter, Mother, Sister, Wife, Girlfriend, Grandmother, Employer, Employee, Supervisor, Board Member, Pet Owner, Property Owner, Friend and Citizen (to name a few). Yet, with the support of energizing and restorative techniques and procedures, composure and well-being can be achieved.

Benessere Fresno is inspired by a vision for the need for competent practitioner services in Downtown Fresno which will enable people to access various forms of well-being processes and also provide education about current sources available for attainment of deeper strength and serenity.

Take care of yourself – you are the only one who really can.
