Raffi is a solution-oriented and forward-looking Bodyworker. Since licensing in muscular therapy 2009, he’s continued with out interruption to certify in a witch's brew of orthopedics, myoskeletal alignment, functional fitness, and many other advanced neuromuscular therapies. He believes that having a good laugh and a balanced diaphragm our two powerful antidotes to staying young, and being an efficient mover. He has a strong movement background in hitting the trails, CrossFit, yoga, martial arts, and skateboarding, and has explored many other physical endeavors in which have leant nicely to his unique broken foot print. After the fun loving abuse or collective wear and tear he’s made a commitment to aim high and to keep those personal standards for the long run. Nature has taken its course and lead him to supplement more specific functional movement training, or neuromuscular re-education into his life as a means for maintaining balance and mongoose like reflexes. He also has adapted the extensive training he’s had with the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI), into his practice which aids him in his holistic approach and assessments.

Work is a type of worship for him and practices what he preaches. Raffi consistently loves learning advances in the field of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, while he passionately aims to remain current with the needs of his clients.

When not working with clients or studying, Raffi can be found exploring the great outdoors with Mrs. K.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Gregory on Nov 05
Unbelievable what ONE single appointment did. Can not wait to go back! Raffi is insanely nice, informative and knowledgeable. He said his approach was "less is more" and I was shocked at how accurate this was. Some minor tweaks that I never would have thought of have already been paying off. 10/10 would recommend!

I've been a client of Raffi's for almost fifteen years. He is an excellent listener and skilled practitioner, taking a wholistic approach to healing. My routine treatments with Raffi allow me to live a more comfortable and fuller life, I highly recommend.

Raffi is a brilliant and intuitive practitioner. He listens deeply to your body and responds. I have been to him several times over the past 18 months, and on each visit he is able to realign what is out of whack for me and give me suggestions for keeping things in order moving forward. Grateful!
