About Us

My name is Wes Haferkamp. I am a bodyworker trained in the “Middleway Method” and I have been working for 4 years as a professional bodyworker.

 The nature of my work changes vastly from client to client. Some regularly come to me to receive light-touch fingertip-only work for face, neck and hands (for example). Others demand I use every ounce of strength I have to achieve adequate pressure for their needs, which is always an enjoyable challenge.

 Every injury is treated differently, even to the point of avoiding contact if the area is inflamed enough. These are techniques I use frequently for healthy bodies:

I’m not a local, so I was a little nervous about booking without a referral. I had an injury so was even more concerned about getting a massage from someone I didn’t know. But I knew within the first 5 minutes that Wesley is a consummate professional: empathetic, thorough and insightful. And it was clear very early in our session that Wesley is highly gifted and skilled in his practice. I have already booked another appointment.

Wesley’s deep tissue technique is incredible. He is able to pin point the pain and work out the dysfunction in the body with firm pressure that allows the body to let go of long held tension. His professionalism and personality make you feel safe and cared for. After a session, I feel immensely happy, rejuvenated, healed, and more aligned.

I found Wesley when I was suffering a near week long tension migraine a few months ago and he worked wonders! He is consistently consciences of my needs and comfort level and remains completely professional at all times. As a woman going to a male massage therapist it is essential that I feel safe and comfortable at all times, and with Wesley, that's exactly how I feel. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great massage.

Awesome! Wesley took seriously my request for deep pressure. I had been experiencing muscle tightness in my neck and shoulder area and for longer than I care to admit in my lower back/hip/upper buttocks/psoas. Wesley fixed me! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Looking forward to a tune up very soon. -Connie S.

Wes was very focused on my needs and would frequently ask "Is this alright?" during the session to be sure that the pressure was good. I really appreciated the cozy, professional space and his fresh (yet unscented) flannel sheets as well as his great use of draping techniques. If you're looking for an effective and therapeutic massage... look no further!

As a female, at first I was apprehensive about a male massage therapist, but Wes made me feel safe, relaxed and nurtured; I really appreciate the deep and focused pressure that I could not find in the female therapists I had gone to before. Wes can intuitively read my body and know what areas need the most attention and yet is very receptive to feedback or direction. I highly recommend Wes, especially to anyone who is suffering from a chronic pain or injury - he will help you to heal.

Wes has strong hands and is incredibly knowledgeable of the body. He worked out trigger points and knots I've had for way too long. I'll be back very soon for more deep tissue body work for sure! Thank you again Was :)

I have been searching for the right massage therapist for some time in Arcata. In the last year I have gone to five different people. After I saw Wesley the first time, the search is over. He is GREAT!!! I have sciatic and piriformis issues that bother me daily. I do all the stretches and advice they say, but I still suffer, and the only joy I get it is really deep tissue massage. Trigger point. Fascia tearing. Wesley brings it all! And he takes pride in bringing the level of depth I require. I recommend if you're looking for something like this! You won't regret it.

Wesley is awesome and knows his stuff! I've gotten massages from professionals before, and while they feel nice, I've never been to someone who lets me know what is going on with my body and how we can fix it. He keys into all the places that need to be worked on and I can feel a difference in my body afterwards. Gives me hope that one day my neck and shoulders won't hurt anymore! I would definitely recommend Wesley to anyone.
