Derek's Approach to Healing
Reconnecting the mind to the body through touch, breath, and movement.
I offer massage therapy, mat pilates and shiatsu and acupressure.
I love to help you learn about your body: to help you discover how the tension you don’t feel in one spot causes the pain you do feel in another; how bringing strength to a muscle that is tight will help it to relax; that no sensation in the body exists in a vacuum. If you let me, I’ll nerd out real hard about anatomy and physiology.
When the mind and the body learn to communicate and cooperate the spirit has its chance to shine.
I attended the Swedish Institute in New York City in 2010 studying Clinical Deep Tissue Massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine assessment tools like tongue and pulse evaluation. After over 15 years of practicing Pilates as a competitive swimmer and tennis player, I trained as a Mat Pilates instructor with Balanced Body in SF in 2014.

Are you a Queer Nightlife Performer?
Ask about the discounted performer rate. Are you a drag queen, drag king, burlesque performer, DJ, gogo, or indie theater player? You are pillars of the greater queer community.
You’re at the forefronts of this war, being loud, making us laugh, making a point, and fighting for our rights. I want to support you in the best way I can so you can keep doing the important work that you do.
