Align with Self

A.J. Rodriguez L.M.T.

I am an Iowa City native who appreciates the diversity in this great city. I appreciate the values Iowans hold in integrity. We are kind to our neighbors and offer help to those in need. I notice how these values attract kindhearted and open minded people from all over the world to join the community we share here. I want to bring together as many people as possible, sharing the experience of energy and body work. I have been on a healing journey of my own for many years ...

I am an Iowa City native who appreciates the diversity in this great city. I appreciate the values Iowans hold in integrity. We are kind to our neighbors and offer help to those in need. I notice how these values attract kindhearted and open minded people from all over the world to join the community we share here. I want to bring together as many people as possible, sharing the experience of energy and body work. I have been on a healing journey of my own for many years now, the impact that holistic living has had on my life is profound and goes beyond words.

The ability to comprehend some of life's miracles go beyond our physical senses, yet miracles happen. Some things in life are unexplainable, no amount of reasoning or logic can contain the vast beauty and wonders of the universe. I have gone through many transformations in my life and I give credit to a healthy and natural approach to life. We are meant to enjoy every moment of life and honor our complete self. Mental, emotional, spiritual and physical bodies. I have embraced a plant based diet and I am an advocate for yoga and wellness. We are all here on earth for healing and I am no different. I have made progress along my life's journey and I know there is much yet ahead of me. I intend to help others to find the tools they need along their path of oneness.

I offer many bodywork and energetic techniques to assist in the promotion of healing. My goal is to release tension and pain with compassion and intention. When one area of the body is being healed, naturally another aspect of us is healing, mirroring to us that which we could not see from a previous outlook we once had in life. Many levels of healing take place simultaneously and I enjoy bringing awareness to the fact that we're continuously working to maintain balance and bring our mind, body and soul into alignment.

All massage techniques have their own place in healing from tigger points to gentle touch. Self-care is extremely important for us all and I love to recommend self-massage and foam roller techniques, along with yoga asanas and stretches. I am an advocate for any holistic path that shines light on self-awareness, healing and well being on all levels.

AJ asked about my needs, let me know his approach to meeting those needs, and made sure to focus on those, while providing a wonderful, relaxing massage! He found the areas needing attention, and worked out the kinks! Take the 90-minute option!

AJ was great! He listened to my areas of concern and took a holistic approach working my muscles through various massage techniques and stretches. I felt afterwards like I had a deep muscle massage but not feeling like I’ve been beat up! I will be back again to see AJ!

I struggle with daily pain due to scoliosis. Aj was very attentive to the spots that cause issues for me, and even found some areas I didnt think were attributing to that pain. My muscles are much more relaxed today. I will recommend, and I will return!!

The massage was everything I would want it to be - relaxing and rejuvenating at the the same time.
