About Chad

Chad has been teaching yoga and practicing massage therapy for almost twenty years. The theories and applications of Rolfing were a natural progression, and his practice has evolved to include a seamless blending of his prior educations with the progressive fields of Rolf Movement Theory. 

 

He is a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.

 

Chad is certified by the Hawaii Department of Education to teach massage therapy. His class topics have included myofascial, deep tissue and muscle-energy techniques, as well as neuroanatomy, assessment, and integration.
