Languages Spoken: English, Spanish
From the tender age of 6 or 7, my fascination with massage therapy emerged, an inexplicable inclination that marked the beginning of a lifelong journey. Though unaware of the significance at the time, I found myself providing massages to the adults around me, a precursor to a calling that would shape my future.

What drew you to Massage therapy?

I remember as a child (6 or 7) giving the adults around me massages. I've always been drawn to it somehow. I didn't know what I was doing of course, but the inclination was there from the start.

What type of massage do you specialize in?

My work is an amalgamation of thirty years of practice in the art. I am fortunate that every three to five years over that span, I have encountered new disciplines and teachers that have transformed the way that I work. But if I were going to try to encapsulate it, I would say structural realignment work in the pursuit of less pain and/or better physical performance for my clients on a day-to-day basis.

Why did you choose this type of massage?

I love getting a good relaxing, fade-off into Lala Land massage and I'm happy to provide that. But when I'm in physical pain, I want to see someone who can make it better. So that's what I strive to do.

How do your talents benefit your patients?

That's for you to find out.

What is your favorite health tip to give your patients?

Grass-fed butter is a superfood that's loaded with vitamin A. Don't believe the hype about margarine and other oxidized vegetable oils. Those oils lead to inflammation.

What is your favorite hobby outside of work?

I love playing chess and waxing philosophical about all things interesting.

7. What would you tell a patient who is nervous about getting their first massage?

You're safe. Your boundaries will be respected. Sometimes the massage might be intense if a tender spot is found. But the goal is to get your nervous system to down-regulate, not ramp up. I can usually tell if someone is holding their breath or clenching their muscles while doing a treatment on a specific tender spot. But don't be afraid to use your voice. It's your massage and you are the authority about what's happening so no need to worry.
