About Us

Ritual Therapeutics Massage & Bodywork is located in the heart of downtown Auburn Ca. We offer holistic bodywork in many different styles and modalities, from basic Swedish to Deep Missue massage, Prenatal Massage Thai Massage, Cupping Massage, Pilates/Corrective Exercise Training, and Nutritional Coaching. Our focus is to aid each client in their own unique journey to a pain free, peaceful life through comprehensive bodywork and compassionate touch.

Our Philosophy

We believe that holistic bodywork is most effective when it is experienced with regularity... that massage should be a personal practice created to help ease the stresses of everyday life and developed to provide the body with the proper tools needed to heal from physical and emotional trauma and injury. As well as creating a harmonious balance of mind and body, we believe massage and bodywork should be a ritual of self.

Our Therapists


Brooke Poletti is the founder and owner of Ritual Therapeutics Massage & Bodywork and has been a bodyworker since 2000. Certified in Therapeutic Massage, ACE Massage Cupping, as a Pregnancy Massage Specialist and DFRTM Practitioner, she balances her comprehensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology with a compassionate touch to provide a therapeutic yet deeply relaxing and nourishing experience.

Anja Frydendal has been utilizing bodywork techniques both on the table and the mat for the past 15 years. Clients and colleagues often call her the “muscle micromanager” for her ability to target specific muscle origins, insertions and actions, offering in-depth attention to areas that may be causing dysfunction in the body. She specializes in slow, deep, focused sessions on the table and brings in more full body treatments to her floor work and is a Certified Prenatal Massage Specialist . During Thai sessions on the mat, a more holistic approach to the body is taken, allowing her to find areas of fascial and energetic stagnation in order to bring movement and flow back into them. Anja loves tailoring each session to fit the specific goals of each person she works with. In her off-time, you can find her cooking, camping, and playing with herbs. Anja is available for appointments Tuesdays and Fridays 10am-6pm.
