About CAN

 

Integrity . Experience . Service

In the past 15 years I have discovered that massage therapy is irreplaceable. I am certain that it stands alone in what it can do for restoring the mind and body to balance and peace. I’ve come to take pride in a profession with a body of work that I find more and more everyday is really able to help people’s quality of life. I’ve worked with hundreds of clients from all over the world and acquired over 1000 hours of certified training and over 5,000 hours in actual practice. I have come to learn how to effectively (in many cases) address chronic muscular pain, stress, tension and physical immobility through massage, bodywork and movement education.  Besides my accredited base schooling at 950 Hours, I have advanced my education with professional certifications with the Oakland Raiders NFL Team’s Physical/Massage Therapist, Feldenkrais Based Movement Therapists, Trigger Point Clinicians, Holistic Chiropractors. I have accumulated extensive experience from years of private practice and  full time work at spas, sports clubs and centers in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Colorado, and Southern Oregon. 

 When I do a massage and bodywork I work at a depth level, and always tailoring the treatment or session to the needs of the individual and to the needs of the day. My vast and extensive training and experience gives me an advanced lens on everybody I see. These days I find myself resolving painful muscular conditions held in people’s bodies for years or even decades.  I enjoy giving people the relief they have found no where else. I consider massage therapy to be a cornerstone in stress management, health care, and a powerhouse for fostering wellbeing for all ages. I live to connect with people, the great outdoors, and the great mystery. 

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