Hi! I’m Candace Kuchar, owner of Camarillo Prenatal Massage and licensed massage therapist. It is my mission as a Prenatal & Postpartum Massage Specialist to help women feel nurtured and supported throughout their journey to, during, and from pregnancy and motherhood.

Serving children and families has always been a passion of mine since I come from a large extended family. This eventually inspired me to pursue certifications and training in both the fields of education and medicine. 

My professional experience began with receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University, where I studied developmentally appropriate teaching techniques for children- birth through age 8. After working with infants and families in a classroom setting, my heart led me to focus on supporting women, and I completed a certification in Medical Assisting and worked in a thriving Ob/GYN practice. Recognizing my commitment to improving lives and love of being a lifelong learner, I continued my educational journey and became a Massage Therapist and a DONA trained Postpartum Doula. For me, massage and Doula work, (although I am not a practicing Doula at this time) is the perfect combination of skill sets so I can offer the best adjunctive healthcare to support my community.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wellness journey to, during, and from pregnancy and motherhoodI look forward to meeting and working with you soon!
