Tim Knutson, Somatics & Massage Therapy

I became interested in massage therapy after I was injured at work.  I had sciatica and between my chiropractor and his massage therapist, the healing that took place for me was profound.

Around this same time, my wife (we are now divorced) developed fibromyalgia.  To help her with the pain, I gave her a massage every day for 8 years.  This experience taught me so much about how the human body responds to massage and how healing can take place.   I was inspired to go to school and get licensed in order to help others who are on their own journey to wellness.  With my experience and the training I have as a professional therapist and somatic educator, what I offer to my clients is a holistic (and Whole Person) approach to healing and transformation as my focus.  I specialize in deep tissue massage and neuromuscular therapy, and Shiatsu massage (acupressure).  I am very excited to be currently attending a 3 year training program with Hanna Somatic Education in Novato, CA, which is a system that teaches voluntary control of the neuromuscular system.  My current clients have received some great results from the Somatic exercises they have learned.

To me, the healing nature of massage is something that all of can benefit from, especially in this fast-paced (and often stressful) technological society.  From personal experience, I have found health and healing from massage. And now with the addition of Hanna Somatics to my own life and practice, I see that our bodies have unlimited potential for healing and balance.  My desire is to share this knowledge with my clients and empower them to find the most freedom in their bodies.

In 2015, I started my own emotional and spiritual healing journey & learned of Flower Essences in school. I was immediately drawn to them. Through the use of flower essences and self help techniques like coloring, meditation, deep breathing and EFT (tapping), I am on the path to accepting and loving myself and all the facets my past. I am grateful that I found flower essences or they found me and I can share them with the world.”

Relaxation Massage is a therapeutic massage that helps to relieve stress, improve circulation, and alleviate muscle tightness, aches, and pains. Massage sessions are customized for each client based on their individual needs. Hot towels and aromatherapy are included based on client preferences.

Oncology Massage can be a powerful healing support for those dealing with cancer. Therapeutic touch can alleviate feelings of isolation, relieve disease and treatment symptoms helping people feel cared for, whole and empowered. Oncology massage is customized for the client and their needs based on the client’s specific contraindications (i.e, tumor site, progression of cancer and needed treatment accommodations).

Deep Tissue Massage is similar to Relaxation Massage, but with deeper pressure beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Private Yoga Sessions are designed for each individual client’s situation. Sessions can be customized to teach techniques to support greater calmness, poses to develop strength and flexibility, or developing confidence to move into group yoga settings.
