About Us

Massage therapy is not just a job, it is my calling! I am versatile with many massage techniques. I do not just provide you with a traditional "feel good" spa massage. I have 29 years of hands on experience.

I have worked with local chiropractors, osteopaths and neurologists. My goal is to find the root of the problem which is causing the symptoms that you suffer from. I specialize in finding solutions for pain and problems related to issues of the body that no one else can seem to find answers to. Here is an example of one of my guest.

I have had chronic back pain for over 5 years. I have been treated by multiple chiropractors, I have had a failed injection in my spine, all to no avail. I cannot sit for more than 15 minutes without intense pain. Then I found Javier. After just one treatment I feel lighter on my feet. I have been able to sit today for over 30 minutes without pain. I think I have found some hope to my hopeless situation.

There was nothing that I disliked. Knowing that there was a specific area of distress,that is the area you spent the time. as time allows it would seem to redo that process only at 75% and 25% the rest of the treatment on the rest of the body ,if all that makes sense.

Over the last 11 years I’ve been to 4 doctors, 5 physical therapists, 5 massage therapists, 5 chiropractors and even 1 accupuncturist all in an effort to cure my excruciating back pain. After many MRIs, X-rays, two out patient procedures at OSMC, and way too many highly addictive prescription pain killers... the pain was still there. Everyone was at a loss as to what was causing the pain. Truly, when I felt that all hope was lost of leading a pain-free active lifestyle again, I met Javier. It took 1 year of visits, but my back is 100% better. I can lift weights, split firewood, and even just walk without any of the pain that even a top sports medicine doctor in our area couldn’t figure out. After looking at one of my MRIs I felt that he was very honest about his ability to help my back heal and how long it might take. Never once did I feel like he was taking advantage of my pain to schedule unnecessary appointments. My husband and I have recommended Javier to many family members and friends. So far everyone who has seen him has had nothing but great things to say about his services.
