Brian is a Certified Massage Therapist, Health Educator, and Reiki Master Healer.
He is an Honors graduate of National Holistic Institute, and has studied CranioSacral Therapy at the Upledger Institute and Advanced Anatomy in the Cadaver Lab at California State University, Northridge.
A firm believer in the body's ability to heal itself, Brian sees his work as a powerful aid to that natural process. Through gentle and deep manipulation of the soft tissues, he is able to stimulate the immune and central nervous systems, helping regulate pain, break up adhesions, and restore energetic balance. He is passionate about helping people feel better, and is committed to helping his clients maintain balance and live healthy, relaxed and energetic lives.
He specializes in treating chronic pain and tension, with a particular focus on migraines, headaches, and disorders of the back, neck and head, as well as injury rehabilitation, sports massage, and regulation of the body's energetic flow. His technique combines elements of Shiatsu/Acupressure, Myofascial Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, PNF Stretching, and Joint Mobilization. He understands that every client's specific needs are different, therefore each of his sessions are customized to best address these unique qualities.
Brian is a lifelong musician and visual artist, having shown an aptitude for the creative arts at a very young age. In addition to his creative pursuits, he spends his free time meditating, reading, baking and cooking healthy food, and spending time in nature. He keeps himself fit by cycling and practicing Hakkoryu Jujutsu and Iyengar Yoga.
