The Invitation

In each moment lies an invitation to return to what is present – your breath, your heartbeat, your very existence.

Sometimes, we’ve spent minutes, days, and even years disconnected from what in our field is wanting attention, forming into an imbalance – may it be pain, stress, disease, challenging relationships with people and money, and so on.

The Invitation

In each moment lies an invitation to return to what is present – your breath, your heartbeat, your very existence.

Sometimes, we’ve spent minutes, days, and even years disconnected from what in our field is wanting attention, forming into an imbalance – may it be pain, stress, disease, challenging relationships with people and money, and so on.

My life’s path has brought me to offer you support on your return towards Self. That is, the integration of the parts – physical, mental, emotional, energetic, spiritual.

You choose what you are wanting to address on any given session. Through our flow of communication, shared intuition, my acquired skills, and your body as an access point, we bring awareness to what is deserving of attention – this can be a specific injury or trauma, chronic pain, stress that is unclear, or many other states of imbalance, in order to hold space for healing (revealing the lost information).

With these words I invite you onto the therapy table to take a profound breath and drop into a space of presence and healing.

Infinite Blessings,

Apolo

Apolo uses his hands with intuition and precision. I was very receptive and completely comfortable and relaxed the entire massage. With Apolo's added creativity you can trust to receive all his attention and possibly the best massage you will ever have.. Massage therapy is his passion and his caring & empathetic attitude shines through brightly, all while holding a safe space for energy work. I feel restored, balanced and more connected to my internal and external body. Thank you Apolo, you are a unique gift to the world of healing and massage!

Javier is a gifted, compassionate healing artist. He has the ability to deeply listen with his hands and applying a very personal touch that was very therapeutic and healing. As a bodyworker my self I've received many massages and by far he stands out one of the tops. The office is located in a beautiful serene place, away from the noise with plenty of parking. Once I walked in he greeted me and went to the massage room. I loved the space and energy of the entire facility, very clean, fresh, welcoming and safe. His space is also very welcoming and peaceful. After telling him a whole story of how I was feeling at the moment he was very intuitive in selecting a music that made the session special. So a deep sense of intuition and really listening to my underling mood that was able for him to pick up and execute through his work and art. A true gift and a natural. My body, mind and soul felt rejuvenated, cleansed and touched with compassion after the session and also in a therapeutic level, my aches and pains vanished and increasing range of motion. I am very grateful to have received from an amazing therapist that is making a healing loving ripple for every person he touches.

I loved my massage from Javier! He was intuitive and present with his touch, checking in with me when he noticed if there needed to be any adjustments. He has a very comforting presence and I trusted his abilities. He addressed every part I asked him to and did not go over-time. I felt so relaxed and grateful for the time spent with him, it made the rest of my day even better. Best way to start my morning thats for sure.

My session with Javi was wonderful and everything I could have asked for. He asked me about my well-being and what I wanted from the massage and how I wanted to feel after. I felt safe to tell him what was going on physically and emotionally. I had been feeling irritable for days before the massage, and after receiving his touch and presence I felt back to my normal state of happiness and peace. The physical massage was lovely as well, very thorough, excellent pressure, meeting my edge but not going past it, and addressing all areas of concern I had mentioned and then some. His oils/lotions he used on my skin smelled so good. He even had dark chocolate on his desk for after! Hands down one of the best massage experiences I’ve had. So grateful.

Javier has a very sensitive touch and is totally in tune with his patients' requests. All in all it was a wonderful experience!
by Sophie on Jul 04
Very targeted massage - the therapist took the time to talk and inquire about areas of particular discomfort, tension, or soreness, ultimately providing a very effective and productive massage.
