"A massage with Michael is not like anything I have experienced in all my years of regular massage therapy. The depth of his massage technique is amazing. And, his calming presence and touch leave you with a resotred peace of mind. Thank you Michael. Each appointment is always such a treat."

-Ashleigh R.

I attended the Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork on the island of Kauai in 2005 and have held a private practice as a Holistic Massage Therapist and Myofascial-Connective Tissue Bodyworker for 14 years. My training and experience working with thousands of clients brought me to see the multitude of layers which affect our lives, and I became very drawn to find and experience subtle methods of healing, for I knew deeply that well-being and vitality comes more naturally when we can look at the health of the body as a product of the energy and vibration we hold and manage through the means in which we operate in our lives.

 

I studied and became certified in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, an approach to working with the intrinsic rhythms and tidal patterns in the fluids and bone structures of the body, based on Osteopathic research. The experiences in those settings and sessions with clients doing cranial work led me more and more to want to know what is this hidden innate wisdom, this Breath of Life, that seems to move through the body, that seems to be expressing itself in ways that are beyond our control. For it seemed that health comes when there is balanced movement and harmonic flow throughout the interconnected systems of the body.

 

And then in 2013 I met a true master, and Andean Shaman of the Light who came to live in America 20 years prior from Colombia to initiate and assist souls who wanted to devote their lives to the preservation of what is sacred and pristine in our world and in ourselves, to serving the power that creates and sustains all life through the work of correcting ourselves and being more accountable for our actions, our energy, our choices, and to being those who could assist others to recover the honor and dignity of their spirits as well.

My strongest ability lies in my stable and humble accountability to work with clients from my heart with no ulterior motive but to assist and serve, building a strong relationship and close association in order to enable the spirit to reconnect with its own root and origin, a reflection that ripples and echoes deep in the soul that is here to fully empower itself in co-creative alliance with the power that sustains our lives.
