About CAN

Expertise. Integrity. Service.

My name is Christopher Allen Neumann, and I love to help fix people’s bodies. I love being the guy that can provide hope when hope has been lost. For many of us pain is debilitating and I love seeing joy return to people’s lives. In fact it is the greatest reward in my life to be able to help clients and patients regain freedom of movement and freedom from pain. 

 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.
