Justin graduated from East-West School of Massage & Integrative Medicine’s Advanced Massage Therapy program with a focus in Medical Massage.
His goal has been to develop an integrative approach combining many techniques optimizing effectiveness and heightening the experience of massage therapy.
This approach intends to seek out the source of potential ailments, developing an interactive method that has a lasting effect and increases well being long after the appointment has ended.
In January of 2017, Justin became a certified Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher. This fulfilled a desire to develop a deeper understanding of the body’s energetic system and how it can be used to interpret imbalances within the body.
Justin has shared his love of education through various teaching assistant opportunities, he was most involved with a course through the University of Iowa developed by Dede Dancing, a local Massage Therapy practitioner and teacher. This course was geared towards assisting University of Iowa Medical students with surface anatomy, palpation techniques and overall interpersonal interaction.
This class has proven to be a very effective means towards improving medical understanding, but has also aided in bridging the gap between Massage Therapy and the Western medical profession.
Justin’s hope is to nurture a greater sense of well-being within the community, raising awareness of each persons own roles in manifesting wellness for themselves and in interpersonal relationships.
