Fernando Artiga

Fernando knew touch was one of his callings since he was a teenager.  He has been practicing massage over fifteen years having completed basic massage schooling at three different schools and furthered his studies with mentors. Understanding anatomy and years of dance experience have given him the confidence to really dive deep and learn how to bring harmony to our over all health. Inevitably, this led him to study the mysteries of magic and Shamanism. Through shamanic studies and the healing arts, he has found a language informed by intuition and Spirit guides which facilitate the body’s natural healing intelligence!  Fernando’s healing style is a combination of deep tissue and myofacial release. He follows major muscle groups and using combination of intuition and client feed back, he gets a sense of what the body needs. This gentle and yet firm approach is refined by his knowledge of anatomy and Chinese acupressure points!  Fernando will be offering: Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Shiatsu/Acupressure at $2 per minute
