MA, LMT, Thai RTT, RYT-200, Reiki Master Teacher

Travis’ journey started as a child, when he would step on his dad’s back to help him find pain points and provide relief. Later on, he discovered yoga and meditation, which helped him build awareness of the mind-body connection. Read full bio

Why did you decide to become a massage therapist?

I know from personal experience how good body work can make a huge difference in a person’s life. I like to share what I have learned from my own journey to help people recover and push further than they’ve gone before. Plus there is so much room for creativity. I love it, and it will never get old for me.

Why did you decide to bring your practice to ASC?

Relationships are important to me, and ASC has a sense of community. It has been around, it has a great reputation, and I really like where it’s headed. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I like a place that has room to grow.

I like the diverse set of skills that can be coordinated as a team. Through my work with non-profits, I have seen how a single person receiving multiple modalities gets further quicker than they do with just one type of care. I am very interested in being part of ASC growing into a multi-care type of environment.

I really appreciate a place that wants to collect diverse skill sets in order to best support people, and I think my own specializations will be a really nice contribution.

How would you describe your approach to massage?

While this question is always easier to communicate through touch than through words, my bodywork focuses on somatic, therapeutic touch. I constantly learn new techniques, which so far include: deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial, Muscle Energy Techniques, Active Isolated Stretching, and Swedish.

In addition to that, I specialize in Thai yoga massage. I also teach and practice yoga and reiki, and in my own life I practice Zen Buddhism. All of this contributes to the somatic work I bring to the table (or the Thai massage mat).

Yoga and Thai massage have a long history of holistic practices to support peoples’ lives, and the bodywork is incredible. They are very supportive in getting the body to open itself up and use its own abilities as an ally in healing.

Anything else you’d like potential clients to know?

My goal in life: I just want to help people be the most themselves that they can be.

I grew up on a farm.

I love to garden and cook.

I love the arts and outdoors.

Fun fact of the day: a duck’s quack doesn’t echo.
