Carlos knows exactly what to do to make my body feel and move better. His SOMA massage techniques have worked the muscle tightness out of my back and hips. I know longer have to worry about having a sore back.

Carlos is an amazing practitioner. He listens to his clients, and is adept at addressing their concerns while creating balance in the whole body. He draws from an immense collection of different techniques and modalities he has studied, and uses these to provide the best results possible for his clients.
