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. Integrating massage therapy with chiropractic treatments, acupuncture, physical therapy and other medical treatments throughout his practice has given John the experience to successfully treat many common conditions. Injuries from motor vehicle accidents, repetitive stress (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), headaches, sports injuries, acute strains and chronic pain. In his therapeutic massage, John uses techniques from Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Shiatsu, Reiki, and Myofascial Release to relieve pain and balance the myofascial systems of the body.
In addition to massage, John also practices martial arts and yoga and enjoys exploring nature with his family.
