Curriculum Vitae

Gay Lee Gulbrandson, a resident of Berkeley, CA, has a BA from Beloit College, WI. She is a certified MLD therapist by the Dr Vodder School - International (DVSI, 1996), and is a certified Dr Vodder School MLD instructor since 2002.

Her qualifications and accreditation include certified massage therapist (1979), AMTA member (1988-), orthopedic massage certification (Hendrickson School 1991), NCTMB exam certified (1995-), BCTMB Board exam certified (2015-), NLN member (1996-), CLT-LANA certified (2002-), CA-CMT Registered (2013-), etc.

Gay Lee has 2 grown sons and is happily married. She is an innovative, dynamic and respected teacher and travels frequently to teach MLD throughout the USA.

GAY LEE HAS A THRIVING PRIVATE PRACTICE IN MLD AND COMBINED DECONGESTIVE THERAPY (CDT). She began with Swedish Massage and then added Orthopedic Massage (Hendrickson Technique). When she heard of Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) she found what she was really looking for. In 2002 she completed Teacher Training as a Basic Course Instructor in MLD, and in 2011 Advanced course certification followed.

Gay Lee's teaching has inspired health care professionals and therapists and estheticians to address physical conditions and assist post-surgical cancer patients with swelling related conditions that are often inadequately addressed by the traditional medical community.

Gay Lee teaches a deep understanding of how the lymphatic system impacts the health of the entire body. MLD has a profound effect on the skin. Gay Lee has taught many massage therapists and estheticians over the past 20 years using effective multimedia presentations, handouts, and efficacious sequence of the Dr. Vodder method treatments.

  • Lodging near (and at) Bloom Healing Botanic Spa:
    You have several options when traveling to The Bellevue Club (TBC) and needing overnight accommodations.
    The Bellevue Club (TBC) itself is home to a handfull of hotel rooms. These rooms can be booked by calling
    Bloom Healing Botanical Spa at (510) 984-4550 or by emailing us at hello@bloomspa.care .
    TBC offers a free, secure parking garage. Rooms and rates are included below. Please note that these rooms are first come first serve and are not guaranteed until the reservation is completed.

    1 suite @ $167/night
    4 rooms with access to a shared balcony @ $126/night
    1 room with no balcony @ $110/night

    For those looking for a traditional hotel stay, we recommend booking a room at the Oakland Marriot City Center located at 1001 Broadway Ave. It is in a walkable neighborhood, close to public transportation, and offers a paid parking garage, urban city experience with a lively nightlife and bar/restaurant scene.

    Another fantastic lodging option is to AirBnB your stay. We do receommend sticking to the Adams Point, Lakeshore, Rose Garden and Piedmont neighborhoods.

    Alternately, Rebecca, owner of Bloom Healing Botanical Spa has three rooms available in her home, just a few short miles from the Bellevue Club. These rooms, again, are first come first serve and start at up to $100/night. You can be sure to expect a relaxing, non-toxic environment, friendly dog and cat, community, mentorship, and light breakfast with tea and/or coffee. These rooms can also be booked by calling Bloom Healing Botanical Spa at (510) 984-4550 or by emailing us at hello@bloomspa.care.

  • Bloom Healing Botanic Spa is an exclusive skin care and full service spa overlooking Lake Merritt.The classroom is attractive and spacious. Access is easy from Oakland Airport, nearby lodging shuttles, taxi, BART, or Uber/Lyft, or nearby San Francisco. PARKING: Student parking is in the parking lot next to the one-story building.

    Oakland is in a renaissance, but isn't a tourist attraction like SF, which can make traditional lodging a bit more challenging. If you aren't finding something in your price range from the list included, we recommend sharing a room with someone as opposed to finding something "cheaper". Do NOT stay at a motel!! While Oakland is considered to be relatively safe, it is definitely an urban experience that requires a bit of street smarts.
    Lock your doors. Don't leave anything in your vehicle. (if driving) Don't walk alone late at night.
    Neighborhoods are block by block, so you can end up in a very undesirable situation very quickly. I recommend staying within the outlined area in the map provided if you are looking for a safe, quiet, and walkable environment with small shops, cafes, and low-key nightlife. That doesn't mean you'll die if you venture outside of the lines, but I do not recommend venturing out of them for lodging, as a matter of financial convenience.
    It should also be noted that Oakland is also experiencing a housing crisis. Do not be alarmed by the tent cities, however, keep your distance and don't stare or take photographs, please. It is disrespectful.

    Weather in the Bay Area is generally mild, but we do have micro-climates that require wardrobe adjustments from one nieghborhood to the next. Also, this is Northern California, not Southern. Do not be fooled by temperatures in the 50's or 60's - we are known for fog and a cool climate. Most buildings do not have central heat, and most restaurants and cafes will keep doors open year-round. Bring lots of layers and a bag to carry them in. Wear warm socks and shoes that can stand up to moisture. Bring an umbrella and/or a water resistant jacket with a hood.
