Work with John


John's work is based on the principles of Hakomi somatic psychotherapy: unity, holism, organicity, mindfulness, and nonviolence. His main modalities include Esalen® Massage and Deep Bodywork®, Myofascial Release, Osteopathic Manual Therapies, Thai Yoga Bodywork, and Sports and Medical Massage. 

John’s appointments organically fall into three categories, but his emphasis is always on learning what techniques work best for you and your goals. And he knows people’s needs change over time, so an approach we find helpful early on in our relationship might not be the best later on.
