John graduated from the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, CA in 1999. His massage practice has been focused on injury rehabilitation and balancing the compensation patterns that develop in the body due to postural factors, chronic pain, both current and past injuries and day to day stress.
I have been a massage therapist for twelve years. I specialize in therapeutic swedish, deep tissue massage, and structural balancing work. There is a never ending amount to learn about the body and its healing processes, and I want to continue to add to my tools and knowledge. I love working on a variety of people with different needs and issues. Every treatment is a unique experience based on that person’s specific needs that day.
For seven years I practiced full time at a medical spa and inclusive health center in El Segundo, California. I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts here in Portland in 2000. I’m happy to be back, and I love the community of St. Johns. In Portland, there is a growing awareness and consciousness of the importance of massage therapy as both preventative and curative health care. Contributing to that awareness makes having my own business here very rewarding.
I do various body treatments, as well as several different modalities of massage therapy. Check out the menu of services for an in depth description of each treatment that I offer, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
