Scott was born in Long Beach, CA but quickly moved to the outskirts of Sacramento where he was raised by his accountant and schoolteacher parents to appreciate the great outdoors, cooking, gardening and a do-it-yourself attitude. Manual therapy became a part of Scott’s life when his mother became nearly bed-ridden from sciatica during high school. He witnessed, firsthand, how bodywork could make a difference in someone’s life; easing those mundane, simple, daily life tasks that we wouldn’t typically think of as difficult. Coincidentally, he also discovered he had a knack for doing it too.
Scott graduated from East-West College of the Healing Arts in 2013 with a focus in myofascial and neuromuscular bodywork. Every session he strives for a personally tailored massage that balances relaxation with maximum therapeutic benefit. Finding life’s insidious, mundane behaviors and linking them to areas of physical restriction has become a passion and is largely what guides his sessions. Stylistically this manifests as careful reading of the body’s tissues combined with nuanced trigger-point as well as active and passive pressure release techniques. While being sensitive and nuanced is his typical approach, elbows certainly fly as needed. Everybody is unique and style flexibility is key in helping our bodies feel safe and comfortable enough to release.
Scott is working toward a pre-health degree with the intention of becoming an Occupational Therapist. In his off time, he like to nurture his inner nerd with cooking, gardening and sewing projects while nurturing his soul and body with cycling and disc golf, preferably in the forest.
