About Us

My Background:
I am an independent massage therapist trained at Arcata School of Massage. I employ techniques from Swedish/Spa massage, Deep Tissue Manipulation, Thai Yoga Massage, Myofascial Release, Chinese Pressure Points (acupressure), Neuromuscular Repatterning, Sports Massage (training and recovery) and countless other influences. I work out of the Isis Healing Arts in Sunny Brae (Arcata) but I am happy to travel to anyone's house so they can get treatment in whichever space they choose.

My Work:
I typically work best at medium to heavy pressure, though I can use light-touch energy work techniques depending on a client's needs. I describe what treatment techniques I intend to use so clients are not surprised while trying to relax. I have most of my experience treating the following:

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • 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.

    Very good. Will book another appointment. Very pain relieving, helped to relieve pain.

  • This man knows exactly what to do! He takes feedback from the client, in the form of what sensations they are experiencing during the session, and Taylors the session to each client.

    Excellent massage, super professional, super relaxing!

  • Wes is a committed professional who works hard to help me get relief from my pain. I will continue to get massages from him because I can tell that change is happening, though it takes time to undo years of tension.

    I've been to several massage therapists and none are like Wes! I suffer from insomnia and after my first massage with him, I slept like a rock the whole night through! Wes is magical!

  • 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.

  • Deep tissue work really helped, well worth it, thank you!

    Good focus on areas I needed.

Very attentive to client throughout, which made for a tailored experience. Even went a bit over session in order to make sure that all tough spots had been thoroughly worked out.

I really appreciated and enjoyed the pressure and depth. I only wish there was more time for more work to be done. I made an appointment for my next session the same day I saw Wesley, so a good impression was definetly made.

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.
