His skills come from different avenues of his learning career, budding from Massage Therapy to Muscle Activation Techniques to Matrix Repatterning, which he essentially applies to his treatments which ever is suitable to each individual client.  It's important to get to the root cause instead of the symptomatic experience.  The source of the dysfunction does not always present itself where the pain is located. 'The fun part in treatment is being able to collaborate all that I know to get to the essence of the problem.'  Pain is just a warning so an investigation is needed to rule out what it isn't. He also gains knowledge through his many injuries and understanding how to build back himself to be able to train in many disciplines. Failing is part of learning and is vital in trying to succeed.  He maintains to sharpen his skills by studying under innovators and thinkers in the field of not only health science but as well as Professional Athletes, Professors, and Clothing Designers to name a few. Originally from the Philippines and at a young age was helping move his Grandfather's limbs due to multiple strokes.  He saw the importance of being able to move freely and to not take this for granted. He continues to search for methods that can improve the body in mind, body and spirit.
