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


  • Great experience wi definitely return and recommend

    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.

  • Fantastic massage! Wesley took the time to understand my issues and provide the appropriate treatment, then gave me things to work on.

    Wes explained all the different methods that he utilzed while working with me. Really appreciate it when a practitioner asked for feed back and actually listens.

  • 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.

    Very knowledgable and listens well.

  • Great experience! Will definitely come back for any issues I may have in the future.

    Wesley is awesome (sense of humor = great) and my session with him was just what I'd hoped for. He listened better than any other masseuse I've ever worked with. I'm very much looking forward to next time!

  • Great knowledge and skill creative use of comforting shifts dynamic quality of whole body approach to healing and relaxing

    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.

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.

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 :)

Business response:

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry about the miscommunication regarding credit card payments. I now have a card reader and am able to take credit card payments in person.

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.

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.
