Richard has studied and been working with the human body for more than 20 years, training in many forms of hands-on therapy, movement, sport, meditation, and bodywork. After receiving his first degree from Arizona State University in kinesiology and wellness, he moved on to complete his Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. He travels frequently to New York, Asia, and Europe to work with clients. Over the past 10 years, Richard has combined his diverse experience working the human body into Five Senses Therapy which uses several complementary modalities to help create balance, move toward optimum health, and release old traumas stuck in the body.
Five Senses Therapy
Five Senses Therapy is a careful and effective combination of techniques to bring the body and mind towards a state of balance and achieve profound results on several levels. It can be especially useful in releasing old stagnant energies which have become stuck in the body from traumas, injuries, stress and posture.
This intense form of therapy has been extremely effective in addressing imbalances and creating a lighter more free human form. Client and practitioner work together using TCM, breath, and deep structural bodywork to identify and release difficult areas.
We are products of our lives. Every thought, food, movement, emotion and injury you have ever had has brought you and your body to this exact point today. At one time in our lives we were free to move without restrictions and our physical alignment was supportive of our adventures. Over time, most of us develop some stress, pain, restriction, misalignment or imbalance. These developments reduce our ability to move freely and inhibit the flow of vital energy throughout our bodies.
His clients have seen positive results for pain, stress, anxiety, old injuries, postural issues, mobility, post surgery and improved athletic performance. Release, realign and take a journey towards a healthier more optimal you.
