Overview

Second Moderna vaccine shot received on 2/17/2021. I offer therapeutic and relaxation bodywork centrally located in the neighborhood of North Park in San Diego. I studied over 1500 hours at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) to obtain my Holistic Health Practitioner status.

My style incorporates Asian modalities, as well as western massage techniques. Although I offer an excellent relaxation massage using a spa-like approach with essential oils and hot towels, my specialty is in therapeutic massage.... My therapeutic approach assists in aches/pains and injury recovery. I focus on stretching exercises using Perioceptive Neromuscular Faciltation (PNF) to increase range of motion and increase performance. I also utilize Asian techniques such as cupping and gua sha to relieve stagnation, increase blood flow and reduce pain.

I have been providing massage services for the LGBT community for over 7 years.

I began seeing Dominic 5 years ago for an injury and have been seeing him ever since. I am an active middle aged (48) guy. crossfit, softball etc. I would never be able to stay that active without his services. excellent massage therapist and overall a very nice guy. Down to earth and a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him.

I have known Dom both as a massage therapist and friend for a few years now.
Not only is he is knowledgeable in the physiology of muscles , he knows how to treat problem areas with deep massage, stretching, and cupping.
He is very professional at what he does, yet has a wonderful sense of humor, a warm compassionate heart and an assured gentleness in his touch.

I just had one of the best therapeutic massages in my life!

A therapeutic massage engages your senses through the use of soothing music, aromatherapy scents and massage oils, as well as the massage itself. Because a massage is an emotional as well as a physical experience, a massage therapist needs a range of professional, personal, social, and physical abilities. My experience with Dominic was all the above and more.

Dominic is very professional, uses great technique and pressure, really listened to what was hurting and helped relieve the pain in my arm and stress throughout my shoulders, neck and back. He is also an excellent communicator and made sure he understood my goals as well as my preferred style (deep tissue).

Dominic is a caring and emphatic individual who has an intuitive understanding of the body. He is a true healer and it is clear that he is meant to do this type of work. Bless those hands!!

Dom knows what he’s doing. Not only did he find the source of my pain and massaged it out, he gave me some exercises to do on my own to strengthen weak muscles. He’s my “go to” source for massage now!

I don't think my neck has felt this loose and pain free in many years! Can't wait until the next massage session! I slept incredibly well last night. Thank you again so much for seeing me in such short notice.

Massage was perfect. I asked for a healing/sports centric massage and he delivered. Came into massage with cuff/shoulder issues from lifting/athletics. The next day all issues were resolved. Very professional and highly reccomended. Will return.
