Ben graduated with over 900 hrs of massage training from National Holistic Institute in San Francisco. He specializes in a variety of modalities both Eastern and Western, ranging from: Swedish, Prenatal, Deep Tissue, and Myofascial Therapies, to Ayurvedic Abhyanga, Shiatsu and Tibetan Stick Therapy (Yug Cho).
He completed an internship in Ayurvedic Bodywork and related therapies, such as Shirodhara and Netra Basti, and continues to study in a 4 year Tibetan Medical Program with Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and Eric Rosenbush at the Sorig Institute. In addition, he holds a B.A. in Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts, and approaches his bodywork with a compassionate presence and artful touch.
Ben believes massage can play a vital role in both the treatment and management of many illness and injuries, especially those of a stress- related nature, as well as supporting and optimizing an already balanced state of health.
