Duane began practicing massage/bodywork therapy after a lengthy career as an Emergency Medical Technician. From experiencing the benefits of massage therapy treatment for his own work related injuries and stress, Duane was inspired. He attended Ashmead School of Massage graduating in 2006 and made shift into rehabilitative bodywork therapy. Since then Duane has enjoyed the humble privilege of working with some amazing human beings and strong spirits, that are his clients and patients, to achieve more pain-free and mobile lives. Incorporating the importance of movement and stretching into his technique, Duane combines multiple rehabilitative bodywork and massage therapies to provide the most optimal treatment outcome to each of his clients and patients. Deep tissue, Trigger Point, Manual Ligament Therapy and Cupping are only a few of the techniques Duane is well trained in and practices regularly. When Duane is not working in the office you may find him at a finish line of a local marathon working on deserving athletes or traveling around the country with the USC Trojan Swim Team at various championship events. Most importantly, when Duane is not working he is with beautiful family either traveling or hiking or fishing or biking or just hanging out enjoying bubble tea or pho or chicken adobo and always with their dog, Koa Duane is credentialed as a preferred provider with most major insurance companies. Please call, text or email to confirm. Located at 510 6th Avenue inside Hawthorne Natural Health, (www.hawthorn-nh.com), downtown Tacoma in the Merlino building around the corner from The Grand Cinema and Corina Bakery.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Nutrition services

by Pryce on Apr 23
my best massage experiences are where the masseuse has their hands on me for most of the hour. I like when all areas of the body are given a once over, including toes, feet hands, and fingers. I enjoys a mixture of relaxing motions and deeper work in areas that need it.

Duane knows what my body needs after all these years of working with him. He fixes all the usual glitches and gets me "back on the road!" And we always have a fun conversation along the way.

Very much a most positive experience from an extremely competent therapist. I will most certainly return for further TX.

I value the method of massage technique used. Explanations tended to be long-winded but thorough. Knowing his background in conventional, emergency medicine and sports related injuries put me at ease: he would have confidence with my mundane issues and have a strong understanding of connective tissue disorder.

Duane is very skilled, has a great approach, and explains what he's doing and why.

Duane is a perceptive and well-att Bed healer. I went in with a new and very painful problem. He listened carefully, asked questions, and did some more assessment before getting into the bodywork. I deeply appreciate his knowledge, skill, and talent for connecting—which is unusual and a gift.

I’m a sufferer of chronic upper back and neck pain. I also have plantar fasciitis in my right foot. I came to Duane for massage to help with these areas and I really liked his techniques. I rate his massages as excellent because he: * Asks good questions to help determine what areas to work on * Listens to my body knowing when to apply the right amount of pressure and depth of pressure, * Takes time and doesn’t go too deep too soon, * He checks to confirm the right amount of pressure is being applied, he doesn’t just assume * Is respectful, caring and personable Having received massage for over 20 years, I rate Duane’s foot and neck massage on my top two problem areas, as the best I have ever received. I will continue to get massages from Duane in the future. Thank you for helping me to feel better Duane!
