About CAN

 

Integrity . Experience . Service

 Hi and Welcome! I’m Christopher Allen Neumann, and I opened CAN Therapeutics in the Fall of 2019 after moving to Ashland with my fiance Kym. I began my practice in San Francisco over 15 years ago, and am passionate about the healing power of massage. 

I believe that massage therapy is irreplaceable. And restores the body and mind to balance. I’ve worked with hundreds of clients from all over the world and have acquired over 1,000 hours of certified training and over 5,000 hours of clinical practice. And I continue to be amazed at how bodywork transforms a person’s quality of life. Not only does it provide relaxation and relief, but it also has the ability to heal longstanding injury. I address chronic muscular pain, stress, tension, and physical immobility through massage, bodywork, and movement education. 

Besides my accredited schooling, I have continued my education with professional certifications from: the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco Giants Team Therapists, Trigger Point Clinicians, Holistic Chiropractors, and Somatic Movement Educators. I have accumulated extensive experience from years of private practice and also working at spas and sports clubs in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Colorado, and Southern Oregon. 

I love tailoring sessions to the needs of the individual and the needs of the day. I have a gift for ‘hitting the bullseye’ and instinctively finding the exact spots that need work to find solution for my clients. These days, I find myself resolving painful muscular conditions held in people’s bodies for years or even decades.  I enjoy bringing the relief that hasn’t been found yet. I consider massage therapy to be a cornerstone in stress management, health care, and a powerhouse for fostering well-being for all ages.

I live to connect with great people, the great outdoors, and the great mystery of life. And look forward to being a part of your path towards health and longevity!
