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.

Highly reccomend AJ! I have always had severe back pain and a pinched sciatic nerve that I started seeing a chiro for and it helped but my muscles were so tight not much progress was made. After my visit with AJ, which was his 2 hour deal for $100, I have noticed a difference in my posture and how tense I feel. I hold alot of tension in my shoulders and lower back and it was pretty tender when we started but by the end i didnt even feel my nerve pinching. The conversation was fun and open along with his high regard for my own comfort and respect, I would love to become a regular cleint soon for his great work and prices!

The shiatsu massage provided by AJ was very relaxing and helpful if you are an active person to help relieve muscle soreness associated with working out/activities.
by Betsy on Dec 14
AJ was fantastic. He took time to listen to my concerns and 'listen' to my body with his hands. I woke up the next morning feeling better than I have in a long time. He cares for people and even gives advice at the end of the session on stretches to do based on where he located problem areas to help continue healing between sessions. I highly recommend AJ's services!

AJ always makes you feel comfortable and he is professional. He knows where to find your tight and sore spots. I always feel like I'm on a cloud afterwards.
