“The beginners mind is the mind of compassion.” - Shunryu Suzuki

Javier’s journey into massage therapy began with an exploration into the world of Qigong.  Qigong is a holistic practice that involves movement, meditation,slow deep intentional breathing, and a calm state of mind. Qigong’s roots are in Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM ) and Martial Arts.

Javier’s journey into massage therapy began with an exploration into the world of Qigong.  Qigong is a holistic practice that involves movement, meditation,slow deep intentional breathing, and a calm state of mind. Qigong’s roots are in Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM ) and Martial Arts. Javier’s first Instructor was Dr. On Wong L.Ac. , DC., from whom he learned the fundamentals of Qigong practice.  Occasionally he would observe Dr. Wong practice Traditional Chinese Medicine in a clinical setting. It was then that Javier recognized the healing potential of this holistic approach and paved the way to his future studies.

In the following years Javier met and began training  with Master Yun Xiang Tseng a prodigy of Wudang Monastery. Under the guidance of Master Tseng, Javier deepened his practice and became a Certified External Qi Healer. External Qi Healing or EQH is a non-tactile ( no touch ) system developed by Master Tseng its objective is to bring balance to the three dantian ( centers of Qi energy ) to rejuvenate and restore a deep sense of well being. After working on the general public as part of  the External Qi Healing training program, Javier realized working with people to facilitate their healing was his calling.


To further his education, in 2015 he enrolled in the Academy for Massage Therapy in San Antonio,TX. His experience in massage therapy school brought about a shift in his understanding and approach to helping people.  He saw the need and effectiveness of massage therapy to bring about relief for soft tissue related pain. He also recognized the power of massage to induce the benefits of the parasympathetic response ( a state which encourages the body to relax and repair ). Javier saw an opportunity to bring together the best parts of his overall training and understanding.


In 2016 Javier decided to open his own massage therapy practice Garza Y La Luna Integrative Therapy. His vision was a practice where he could offer thorough assessment, and customizable massage treatment tailored to his client’s needs.  He wanted to have the time and ability to sit one on one with his clients,usually not possible working for a traditional massage therapy establishment.

Javier brings with him what Shunryu Suzuki ( Zen Buddhist Monk and Author ) called “Beginner's Mind” - the state of seeing through fresh eyes. Javier is committed to serving his client’s to the best of his ability, and is constantly seeking opportunities to further his training - as demonstrated by the wide array of services he offers. His client’s well being is his main goal, if there is something beyond his scope or ability then he is committed to helping his clients by directing them to the right kind of practitioner.


If you are in need of massage therapy, consider the personalized approach Javier offers and the value it adds to your treatment.
