massage therapist and physical trainer
My passion for massage therapy and exercise rehab training started in 1989 with a medical group of 9 rehab facilities throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside county, where I worked as a rehab rover technician. The knowledge I learned from working on patients with pre and post-surgical Orthopedic, Neurologic, stroke (GAIT Training) and amputations was incredibly valuable.
Next on my path was helping high functioning level paraplegics walk again at a Spinal Cord Institute, in Pacific Palisades. And, in the Physical Therapy Transitional Head Trauma rehab unit at Long Beach Memorial Hospital I gained amazing experience seeing people come back from life-altering injuries.
Then in 1995, I found myself in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley (Arcadia) working in a facility that geared itself to professional/college/high school athletes and the weekend warriors in all facets of rehab. Pre & Post-surgical: Neck, Shoulder, Hip, Knee, and ankle injuries. During that time I began my own private clientele, which was 24 years ago and counting.
… When the pandemic hit at the beginning of 2020, I decided to take a sabbatical from my massage work and focused on family, mainly my 95-year-old father and a few aging aunts and uncles in their late 80’s.
At the beginning of this (2021) summer with things going somewhat back to normal, I decided to look for a place locally, where I might be able to be of help in my own community (San Pedro) and here I am at “ABSOLUTE BEST” with an incredible staff with exceptional trainers and Practitioner’s that put patients first.
I look forward to meeting everyone and passing along my knowledge and skills to help as many patients in their rehab journey of becoming as healthy as they can be in all aspects of health, mind, body and spirit.
