I am a graduate at the National Holistic Institute, San Jose, 2011. Completed a 720 hour program and received a letter of excellence. Since graduation I have volunteered as a teacher’s assistant to help assist the instructors with the daily lessons. I am very versed in anatomy and Kinesiology and love to share my knowledge with the students I work with. I also help demonstrate proper form and technique ranging from trigger point and deep tissue to Swedish and everything in between. Joined the Sports Therapy Massage Team at school, traveling with the team to all the local marathons, triathlon and bike races performing pre and post massage for the athletes. I was also chosen as the junior class representative to speak at open orientation for students that are interested in becoming massage therapist.

My main focus is myofascial therapy, trigger point, deep tissue, and passive/active release therapy. Being knowledgeable with myofascial and trigger point allows me to find and help release the area of pain or tension. This does not mean I can’t do an excellent Swedish, or a relaxing massage. If one of my clients becomes pregnant I will continue to work with them and have seen many of my clients throughout their full term of 40 weeks.

I worked for Massage Envy for a few years where I was named lead therapist and nominated for massage therapist of the year. I gained my experience working with a wide range of clients meeting their needs and helping them achieve a state of well being. I also worked closely with patients for four years as a physical therapist assistant and have been teaching for Golds Gym as a Spinning Instructor for over 10 years. In 2015 I became the team therapist for The Wolf Pack, a Bay Area running club for (mostly) post-collegiate athletes looking to still get in some competition and training. I look forward to working with my clients combining all my knowledge to help each one feel better than when they came in.

Wow, Javier does a great deep tissue massage! Very strong and deep, yet knows how to go lighter when it's needed. Great job!

Great therapist! Listens to what I have to say; my concerns and questions. Remembers things about my body from appointment to appointment. Great pressure without without leaving me bruised, so I know that he is working my muscles properly.

Javiers professionalism and skill is amazing. I have tried many things for my foot pain and nothing has worked as quickly as going to Javier.

Javier is the best! Knows exactly what muscles need to be worked on and always seems to find that one spot where all my tension is held. By the end of the massage my muscles feel great and finding myself less prone to muscle tears and aches that I use to experience during periods of intense physical activity.
