ADRIANNA , LMP

Massage has been a part of her life since she was a young child. Growing up, she would constantly get shin-splints, sometimes the pain was so severe it was debilitating. Her Mother would massage her legs to help ease the pain. Massage worked better, and more efficiently than over the counter medication that we normally self-prescribe for acute pain. When she was older, Her Mother developed Plantar Fasciitis, she would use similar massage techniques to ease her Mothers pain. This, is where She believes her passion for massage therapy started within her heart.

It was in October of 2007, when She answered her calling to become a massage therapist by attending Nevada School of Massage Therapy. Upon completing education in October of 2008, She acquired a position in the rehabilitation department of the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center. While at LVVSC, She introduced massage therapy as addition to their standard therapy practices, which has now become a part of their standard practice. In 2010, She relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and transitioned massage from veterinary medicine to chiropractic care and various alternative medical practices.  

Adrianna, completely believes in the healing aspects of massage therapy. From breaking down of scar tissue post-surgery allowing for better blood flow and increasing range of motion, to de-stressing the rigors of day to day life, massage never ceases to amaze her with its endless applications and benefits. Throughout her 7yrs as a massage practitioner, massage therapy has taught her and continues the importance of caring for one’s body as a whole (mind-body- spirit).

She states “Massage helps us in many ways, bringing us back to center, allowing us to breathe, guiding us in ways to heal ourselves on multiple levels. Massage is an ever growing field, filled with new discoveries and new techniques, deepening our understanding of the human body. Truly, massage has woven threads of healing into my inner being. I consider myself fortunate to be able to say, I love what I do, my only hope is that you will love what I do too.”

KEVIN , LMP

Kevin was born in Bellevue, raised in Tacoma and later moved to Alaska to become a man. Kevin has a wealth of life experiences which has taught him to enjoy all of the little moments, celebrating his successes and learning from his failures. Kevin moved down from Alaska with his family in 2013, which allowed him the opportunity to take a new turn and return to his real passion.

With a desire for helping others and the need to work with his hands, Kevin saw his path in life and become a massage therapist. Enrolling in Body Mechanics school of Massage and Myotherapy in 2002, he discovered his talent for trigger point, deep muscle therapy, and an understanding of the human structure. He was unable to finish the program at that time but was able to take that knowledge with him to complete his degree ten years later with the Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics in 2015. His education was rounded out with a more holistic outlook of the human body and a greater appreciation of the body’s ability to heal itself. Although he enjoys traditional relaxation massage, along with prenatal work, his first love is trigger point and other structural pain relief modalities.

Kevin’s other passions include board games with his family and other social hobbies which rely on imagination, a sharp mind and keen intelligence. He is an avid practitioner of martial arts through the use of Tai Chi and western martial traditions.

Her mother had to go through physical therapy and massage therapy to help with the pain and get her back to normal again. One day when dropping off her mom for her a massage, Jocelyn had become very interested in massage after seeing her mother progress in her treatments and started doing more research on massage therapy she loved how diverse this career field was.

JOSH, LMP

Josh was interested in massage while he was attending Everett Alvarez High School in Salinas, California. Helping others was something he knew he wanted. He took his first massage class months after he graduated in 1999 and knew it was the career he would pursue. It took a while to reach, with life getting in the way as it does, but massage was always in his mind.

He started working in retail as a picture framer at Michael’s arts and crafts. It provided him an opportunity to work one on one with people helping with their visions of what their art should be. He quickly learned that the best part for him was seeing the customers face when they saw the completed vision. Solidifying his want to help others achieve happiness. Josh next went into finishing work in construction. Though different in most respects, knowing the houses he worked on were going to people realizing a dream of ownership, he pushed himself to do the best work possible to ensure their happiness.

Josh has completed many massage classes through the years in different states finishing with Everest College in 2011 and getting his licensure. He has worked for the last five years with chiropractors and massage therapists learning from them and honing his skills. He specializes in relaxation and deep tissue massage and is taking an interest in modalities that involve the movement of the body and its role in the healing process.

Some of Josh’s interests include reading, and spending time with his family. He is also working on becoming physically healthier and looks forward to the time when someone has found that pizza and pastries are good dietary foods.

CARSTEN, L.Ac. EAMP

Many people discover acupuncture in different way. Often times they come to it as a last resort. While acupuncture is more and more common today, it is not usually the first choice people seek out to treat health problems.
For Carsten Rode, the situation was the same. Struggling with consistent shoulder and wrist pain he was attempting to treat these conditions with medication. Ultimately unsuccessful, the conversation turned to surgery. Knowing the minimal success rate surgery has in relieving pain,

Carsten sought out alternative options. Eventually he found himself in an acupuncture clinic. Carsten would have never thought during his first visit that several years later he would be so compelled by the results of his care. He decided to reconstruct his career path and become and acupuncturist himself.

Originally from Germany he grew up in a household of doctors and nurses. He always respected and liked what his family members did to care for others. However, he never truly supported the methods. As a child, witnessing patients stop and thank his father for helping them improve their health, remained imprinted in Carsten’s mind. This lead to his decision to return to school and attend Bastyr University in Seattle.

The intense training was an eye opener to the possibility of treating ailments with such traditional and new approaches. Every condition provides a new challenge. Carsten enjoys to find the root cause of an ailment. The biggest reward for him is a patient who smiles a little more after each treatment.

Carsten is a board certified Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM). His experience ranges from serving patients in multiple clinics as part of the Bastyr teaching curriculum as well as opportunities to treat Seattle Marathon participants. He has assisted his wife in building a successful Integrative Health clinic in Issaquah and spent some time in a fertility clinic in Seattle. He has also sought out opportunities to spend time with MD’s at a Group Health Urgent Care and shadowed an Orthopedist at the ER of the Medizinisches Zentrum Staedte Region Aachen in Germany.
