Marcelo Castilho, Massage Graduate
Marcelo is a graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy. He is a firm believer that Massage Therapy is about treating the whole person, beyond the muscles. He strives to provide his clients with an experience of feeling safe, calm, connected, accepted and heard, so that people can feel in their bodies and find their bodies as a friend.
As a former marketing research and public opinion research analyst, Marcelo has always been interested in hearing people's experiences and the impact of those experiences in their quality of life. In terms of his relationship to the body, Marcelo grew up in Brazil and developed a strong connection with his own bodily experience. He enjoys volleyball, soccer, capoeira, cycling, playing guitar and practicing yoga with his wife. He developed his manual skills as a chef in his own restaurant in 2002. From that experience, he has brought the quality of his touch to his massage practice. Marcelo utilizes a touch that can be firm and delicate, at the same time - an intuitive touch that is specific while taking into consideration the broader scenario.
Bringing all of this together, Marcelo hopes to offer you a deep and thorough nervous system regulation that builds upon your own self-healing capacities and, therefore, promotes long-lasting effects.
