Licensed Massage Therapist & Reiki Master 

About  AJ

In 2015 Anthony, or AJ for short, began his career as a yoga teacher after finishing a 200 teacher training with Yoga For Life in Portland, Oregon. Beginning his yoga journey through DVD's, AJ used the teacher training to deepen his personal practice. While working as a part time yoga teacher, helping to balance his stressful retail career, AJ began traveling the globe to complete more training's.

While on his second retreat in Nepal, intuition led him to look at massage schools, and AJ was able to complete the 800-Hour massage program at East West College of the Healing Arts, in Portland Oregon and transition out of his stressful retail job.

Similar to his journey to deepen his knowledge in yoga, AJ enjoyed the science and the art of massage and continued to further his craft through becoming a Reiki Master under Marie Manucheri in Seattle, Washington, and seeking out electives such as Tui Na - a Chinese massage modality, Cupping - both fire and suction, and different spa techniques such as mud and salt scrubs, body wraps, aromatherapy, and hot stones.

 

Aj continues to further his search to learn new modalities, and will be training in the art of Ashiashu Massage, a luxurious deep-tissue massage where the therapist holds on to specially-attached ceiling bars to maintain their balance while walking on a client's back; delivering long gliding strokes with constant broad pressure to provide a soothing experience. In August 2019, AJ packed up condensed his belongings to only what would fit in his Jeep and he moved back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, bringing his knowledge and thirst for more education with him.

ASHIATSU BAR MASSAGE

Meaning "foot" (ashi) "pressure" (atsu), ashiatsu, this is not your typical massage. And although ashiatsu sessions may appear unconventional, with the therapist holding on to specially-attached ceiling bars to maintain their balance while walking on a client's back, this type of bodywork is a luxurious, deep-tissue massage.  The therapist uses long gliding strokes delivered with consistent, broad pressure to provide a deep and soothing experience.   Deep tissue fanatics and athletes love this massage!

REIKI TREATMENT

The Reiki practitioner works as a channel to connect energy from the universe to the client. The effects may be felt in the client’s body, mind, or spirit.
