“I truly believe that in order live well you have to feel well. My mission is to help people feel well.”
Carlos Matutes is a Holistic Health Practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Tui Na, Shiatsu, Athletic and Swedish Massage. Educated at the world-renowned Mueller College of Holistic Studies in San Diego, Carlos received his degree in Asian Therapies in 2005. Carlos is also a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, as a certified Health and Nutrition Coach.
Balancing the hard sciences of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology with Traditional Chinese Medicine, this program gave Carlos a thorough understanding and appreciation of the human body. Carlos’ passion for holistic health began with a love of cycling. Recently, he became a Certified Schwinn Indoor Cycling Instructor so that he can help his clients with off-season fitness and sports-specific conditioning. Additionally, he holds a TRX Certified Group Exercise Instructor designation. TRX is a suspension training system that builds core strength, flexibility and stamina.
While it is important to find relaxation and “de-stress” during a bodywork session, Carlos’ main focus is to help people achieve optimal health and wellness. He uses various techniques such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)- based bodywork- Tui Na, Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai Massage. These modalities utilize pressure from the fingers, hands, forearms and elbows to treat imbalances in the body, and to help alleviate structural issues. Although relaxing, TCM- based bodywork leaves you energized, and ready to take on the rest of your day.
For athletes, weekend warriors, and even the gardening guru, therapeutic athletic massage is just what you need. Focusing on trouble spots, more vigorous work is done to loosen knots, spasms, and stiffness.
