Early on, Macaylan was a stay at home mom as her husband, Austin, proudly serves in the United States Navy as a nuclear electricians’ mate. She and Austin have 2 gorgeous sons, Kashton (4) and Chance (2) and as they grew, so did Macaylan’s desire to reimagine her dream.
Enrolling in the National Holistic Institute in San Jose, Macaylan was entirely sold on the curriculum and completed the 900-hour program. “I ended up at labarre by chance as my externship was at TrioSpa and I fell in love with the studios at 1445 The Alameda,” Macaylan shares. “I ended up reaching out to owner and founder, Lisa Alberino, and we struck up a great relationship. That’s where it all began and I am very excited to get started at the beautiful space.”
Drawn to massage therapy to combine the love of science with her love for wellness and simply helping people, Macaylan has jumped in with an enthusiasm and desire that warms our hearts.
Her eagerness spawns not only as a culmination of her journey, but also as a true believer in what she is doing. As a recipient of massage therapy, she knows first-hand the importance and healing effects from massage therapy. From prenatal to Swedish massage, all of the modalities have done something special for her.

The studios were a perfect fit for Macaylan and she was a perfect fit for labarre!
“Everything is so well decorated and put together… it’s the cutest place I’ve ever seen in my life. I just love it. I show pictures to my friends all the time and they tell me they want to come! I also like the sense of community. The way the staff members interact with each other and the guests as well. Labarre feels like a big team and everyone supports one another and are pushing for the same goals. The sense of community is really there.”
