Translates: Wise-Warrior “One Who Gives”
Soothing Escape was developed to alleviate the cause of muscle tension, not to treat the symptoms.
Describe a recent project you are fond of?:
I have worked with many ranges of people from the elderly inside nursing homes providing gentle compression and Manual Lymphatic Drainage, to working with the children of Our Children’s House Of Baylor in Los Colinas observing the physical therapy rehabilitation of the children with; cerebral palsy, recovering from brain tumors, and traumatic experiences that frequented the facility.
A passion in sports and performance training lead to my tenure working with the athletes of Paramount: Strength and Conditioning where I acted as the Clinical Strength Coach, there to prevent injury during /post powerlifting and strongman competition.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?:
I enjoy the satisfaction that when receiving massage on a consistent basis, during every massage we are working to influence positive empowerment of your entire body; from the inside boost of your immune system to the outside invigoration of your muscles.
How does your service stand out?:
When I work with my clients, I ask questions first to hear what you tell me what your body is in need of and then at the beginning of every massage session I take time to balance/center myself to feel where your body is calling out to receive bodywork
Why choose bodywork as your profession?
“Bodywork is life. I was going to be a lawyer or a psychologist. My spirit wouldn’t let me pursue or stray away from working with the body. My end-game is Physical Therapy, specializing in hips and knees. Taking that into fact, I played Texas football, and the standing squat till your gluts graze the grass was considered proper form. Let’s say my hips didn’t fit their form. Not until freshman year college yoga where I was handed a rope and my hips released. That day my understanding of mobility was not found in how strong or how much weight on the bar, though was found in the ability to connect with my body from the muscles into the joints which is where strength is truly found.”
