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.

Javier is the best! I slept wrong the night before and my whole neck and shoulder were hurting. He worked out all the soreness and I'm back to feeling great.

Javier has good technique and listened to my requests

Javier was very thorough in getting information from me about my current problem and exactly what work I wanted done. He did an amazing job of going deep where needed without going over my pain threshold or leaving that intensely "bruised" feeling I have experienced with other therapists. He was especially good at tricky or regularly ignored areas: the jaw muscles that are affected by my TMJ, pectoral muscles (I understand why some therapists can be skittish about working this area on female clients, but I said I wanted it done and he did it without ever putting his hands where they didn't belong), and some little muscle in my back under my shoulder that he told me the name of but I forget it and that was causing me some serious misery. I have a desk job and he said that it was a muscle that gets used a lot while using a computer mouse. Anyway, I have chronic problems with painful muscle tension in the neck and shoulders and he did a miraculous job of getting those knots untied!

Best massage I’ve had!
by Derry on Dec 20
Javier is more than a "feel good" massage therapist. He knows how to attack my tight and sore muscles and spasms to make a difference so when I leave I feel so much better than when I came in. He is amazing!!
