About Christopher

I opened CAN Therapeutics Massage Clinic in the Fall of 2019 after moving to Ashland from Santa Monica with my wife Kym. Since then it has been an incredible adventure of learning, healing and service. These days I find that my clinic is filled mostly with folks who have pain conditions that haven’t been resolved by any other means. From plantar fasciitis to chronic headaches, debilitating neuropathy and folks who have had strokes. I am honored that I have acquired the skills and knowledge to be able to help release people from what can be sometimes decades of chronic pain.

I began my practice in San Francisco over 15 years ago at the World School of Massage and Holistic Healing Healing Arts. There I trained in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage with the San Francisco Giants Team Massage Therapist and other more energetic modalities. In my first year of practice in the East Bay after becoming certified I found that for some people I was putting a band aid on, and not helping to get to the root of clients pain. This sent me on a quest throughout my twenties and early thirties for healing modalities including lifestyles that would lend themselves to optimal health and well-being.

Throughout my twenties and into my early thirties, while using my basic massage training to live and travel in the world I trained with experts in the field of manual therapy and movement therapy, including an advanced apprenticeship being trained to take over a trigger point therapy clinic. The culmination of my education, training, practice and personal experience with the body has given me a wide lens and perspective with unique and skilled perception when working with the Human Body. With this I bring to each individual case I work with.

When Covid hit I began to focus my services online. The Online Clinic was built. Now my main focus is split; helping people around the world have the tools they need to live without chronic and debilitating pain through online therapeutic treatments and offering premier 10 Day bodywork vacations, where people to drive or fly in to where I am and receive world class bodywork attention and receive ground breaking, and guaranteed results.

When I am not working with people, you can find me walking the dog with my wife on a beautiful trail, meditating or training for a marathon. I prize family and friendship, truth and love and above all else, being a good servant to life.

I look forward to being a part of your path towards health and longevity.

-Christopher Allen Neuman

The wisdom of the animals has much to teach us humans about health and longevity. The animal kingdom naturally deploy’s an innate bio mechanical routine i’ve come to call ‘functional pandiculations’, which allows their muscles to stay supple, flexible and strong. When’s the last time you saw a bengal tiger with back pain?

Humans possess the same potential for health and well being however we lack the instinct that would allow us to unlock this hidden system of optimal existence. We have to be taught it, and that is where Christopher’s Motion Potion comes in.

Based on the ingenious work of the late Dr. Thomas Hanna, Moshe Feldenrkais and Hans Selye, Motion Potion is an effective and efficient set of movements you can learn and do anywhere, on your own, everyday, to get out of pain and stay out of pain, for life.

Using timeless wisdom from the animal kingdom, there is hope for chronic and debilitating, and otherwise untreatable pain.” -CAN

Dea Parks, Retired Plumbing Company Owner

Christopher’s easy to follow instructions and gentle movements gave me almost instant relief from my hip pain.

Adama Hamilton, Senior Hakomi Trainer

I almost didn’t do my online treatment with Christopher this morning because of lower back pain. The movements were subtle, gentle, and amazingly effective!  Pain reduced by 95% after the class!!!

Karen Kimsey, Co-Founder Co-Active Training Institute

“I’m a firm believer in Motion Potion!  The Chronic pain in my right hip cleared up completely and I know that just a few minutes a day of regular practice will keep my body mobile as I age. What a gift!”

Gina Belt, Retired Lawyer

“Christopher’s movements focus on restoring various muscle groups to their potential so that they can aid you in better overall locomotion.  And after decades of ill-advised positioning of arms, legs, shoulders and hips, who doesn’t need that?!? The video collection consists of relatively few repetitions of small movements that ultimately make a big difference in how you feel and move afterward.  Some days it is nothing short of miraculous, other days it puts a spring in my step, and always it relaxes me and makes me more aware of my posture and the manner in which I conduct everyday movements.  These movement lessons have alleviated my longstanding peripheral neuropathy, shoulder and neck pain, and perpetually constricted calves.  I am grateful to Christopher for bringing this modality of healing.”

Julie Teffeteller, Relationship Expert

“Before working with Christopher, I had really bad neck and shoulder pain from really horrible posture. I felt like it was always distracting me, and sometimes even stopping me from doing certain activities. I had seen several doctors about this, and had even gone so far as getting injections in my shoulder which I deeply regret! I’d aslo seen a couple of chiropractors and massage therapists. That really helped but wasn’t very lasting. I had to keep going back for relief (which was expensive) and it didn’t  do much to help my posture. Motion Potion® is a game changer!!! These videos are easy to follow, and it’s really quick to do the movements each day. My neck and shoulders feel SO much better, and I feel like this is really easy to maintain with the daily movements. This is so much cheaper and healthier than expensive surgeries. Highly Recommend!!”
