In session, I need to know what you're experiencing physically and what you're looking to gain from your session. In turn, I will explain the treatment and what you can expect to gain from it. I take notes after every session to build your personalized treatment plan.

I began my health and wellness journey in my 20s while training in various martial arts; primarily in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.
In 2015, I took a break from martial arts to concentrate on my work as a public speaking instructor for middle school students. It was during this time that I began my own fitness journey by losing 20lbs. I obtained my personal training certification shortly afterward.
I started my journey at City Sports, working with clients from various backgrounds and age groups. With the arrival of the COVID lockdowns and the closing of the corporate gyms, I moved my services online and led many of my former clients in maintaining their health despite the sedentary lifestyle imposed during that time.
I'm now a personal trainer with EXOS, I also provide massage therapy services under one of Silicon Valley's premier chiropractic offices, and lastly I provide Stick mobility and massage therapy services at the Dao Wellness & Acupuncture Center in South San Jose.
I look forward to meeting and working with you on your health and wellness goals!
