Utilizing intense but comfortable stretches along with deep soothing pressure, Alex’s treatments aim to affect the core of your structure and not just the muscles and superficial meridians. He can work with a wide range of issues and specializes in treatment of the neck, shoulders, lower back and hips. His style is strong and supportive but by request Alex can also gives subtle energy work as treatment.
Alex’s childhood served to lead him on his way to becoming a therapist. His mother, being an energy worker, reflexologist and yoga teacher, taught him healing touch as a small child and guided him through meditations and basic yoga practice. In 2002 Alex obtained certification in Reiki, practicing on friends and family. After a few years he chose to learn the more hands on technique of Shiatsu, choosing this art for its balanced focus on both physical and energetic therapy.
Alex began training Shiatsu in 2005 from Kokoro Dojo’s intensive diploma program, graduating in and maintaining a professional practice since 2007. He maintains continuing studies in advanced Shiatsu techniques as well as Martial Arts (Aikido) and Ki Development.
