Aloha! My name is Alec! I have a beautiful wife accompanied by two fur-children. I graduated high school a year early in the top five percent, earning myself two free years of community college. I spent two years following a path towards Network Security and came close to getting my associates in Science and Arts. I was even accepted to the University of Advancing Technology but soon decided that working with computers wasn’t what I was meant to do in this life. I know that helping people reconnect to their body to heal is my true passion in life.
I have been practicing massage since the age of three but I became professionally licensed in 2014. One of the biggest reasons why I started this path was because of my mother; one night she asked if I could feel a small ball in her shoulder and to rest my elbow into it. Since then, I’ve helped my family and friends as much as I could. It wasn’t until I had a line of people at family reunions that I decided to look into this career path a bit more in-depth. I’ve always been the person to rely on for help and giving advice so everything fell into place when I started with Arizona School of Massage Therapy.
Safety as well as comfort is my biggest concern during a session because I believe you will be most relaxed when those principles are intact. The most common compliments I receive are towards my flow and ability to provide sleep-like relaxation while working out the most obnoxious knots. After taking more classes on Myofascial Release, I’ve learned easier ways for my client to enjoy the session and not just during the weeks after. I tend to let my intuition take me to where the body tells me to go while staying in the pressure zones my client finds to be the best fit. Other classes I have taken include Facial Rejuvenation paired with Lymphatic Drainage, Infant Massage and a refresher class in Trigger Point for the upper body.
In the future, I am interested in learning beneficial techniques for clients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and cancer. I would also love to take Hypnotherapy classes to help my clients travel deeper into their own healing.
