I have over 2,000 hours of training and continue to study and evolve my approach to helping my clients gain deep relaxation and stress relief, as well as freedom of movement and injury rehabilitation. I like to work according to what each client needs to support optimal functioning and health.

My bodywork is infused with the Body Mechanic Method ® principles. The Body mechanic method ® is a sensorimotor approach to learning that engages the body-mind to help clients become aware of their movement, posture, and structural holding patterns that contribute to tension, pain, and unnecessary limitations. These compensation habits—often learned after injuries, accidents, and trauma—will start to change, reminding your body-mind of the way it was organized before the trauma, bringing you back to earlier, more functional ways of moving and being.

I encourage my clients to be active participants in their healing process which brings harmony to mind and body through my nurturing, therapeutic touch. My experience of body mechanics, strength, flexibility, and holistic outlook allows them better body functioning as well as more spacious living.

Outside of my bodywork practice, In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. Thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, hiking, biking in nature and enriched by traveling. I like to stay emotionally and physically fit with Yoga and bodyweight training. My bodywork has been influenced by many years of these practices as well as meditation practices, which nourish me deeply, professionally and personally.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Apr 09
I had the lymphatic drainage massages and to be able to leave an honest review I had actually went to another massage therapist and the comparison is huge. Ladies or Gentleman your lymphatic massages are suppose to be somewhat uncomfortable, so the few massages I recieved here were really not helping me nor therapeutic for my healing and recovery. There has to be enough pressure applied to push out fluid, increase circulation, flush out lactic acid and metabolic wastes and to smooth out the swelling. I had a bbl, 360 lipo and your massage therapy can make or break your recovery. I now know that I didn't recieve that going here, which I was very disappointed to say. Cleanliness, professionalism was great, but the most important part for me, the massages was just not a proper lymphatic drainage massage.

I had lipo 360 a little over a month ago. I found Me. Ortiz on google. The experience has been amazing and I am draining very well and healing great! I would recommend him for anyone especially a lymphatic massage if you have just had surgery!
