About this pro
Donna Paul Today at 9:23pm Chad worked on me last night and I feel like a new person today. It was a very special massage unlike most I've had. His method is so unique. As distinctive as he is-- a man with a big heart and soul, and unbelievably great hands. His deepness doesn't hurt-- it embraces your body-- or hand, or arm, or leg, in a way that he's massaging healing into it and allowing it to let go. From the instant he touched me-- my 8 weeks post operated on foot-- I trusted him and knew he was brilliant. I've had a lot of body work and I know Chad is a master. He is in superb shape so he can focus his strength during the massage in very amazing ways. I can promise anyone, a massage with Chad will blow your mind. And the next day, you will feel freer, lighter, and overall sharper in your mind, because your body has less pain. I can't wait to go back to Chad. He is my go-to now in LA. Treat yourself go see Chad and he uses great oils, his studio smells divine and he's an all around wizard of healing. But without any of the woo-woo stuff. He's the real deal.Apr 4, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. My standard rate is $150/hour. I provide discounts for loyalty, frequency, testimonials and referrals. The price I advertise on Thumbtack is an introductory discounted rate of 20% off for first time clients only. There's lots of differing options depending on how frequent you are wanting to visit and how long-term of a commitment you are willing to make. The most loyal clients that visit on average twice a week or more can see that hourly rate discount to as low as $90/hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I meet with a new client we discuss their goals for treatment and I get a brief medical history concerning skeletal or muscular issues as well as any systemic illness. I then describe my approach as it applies to them as an individual, how I will attempt to alleviate their symptoms to return them to optimal performance of the musculoskeletal system. That's just the analytic part. We then start to converse, getting to know one another while I start with the massage. I think it's important that my clients understand what it is I'm trying to achieve when I'm massaging tense areas, so during the first few sessions theres a lot of conversation about anatomy, physiology, structural integration and acupressure theory, etc. I also want to be sure there's a rapport, mutual respect, and trust that develops. The relationship is physical, and I realize that some clients will only relax their muscles once I've proven not only my abilities as a massage therapist, but that I'm relate-able to as a decent person as well.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a lifetime of education, both formal and informal, when it comes to massage. When each of my parents were about the age I am now they both studied massage and became certified therapists albeit in differing fields. My dad studied structural integration and Rolfing, and is now in Eastern medicine school studying acupuncture, herbs, and shiatsu. My mother on the other hand became a reiki master and specializes in cranial-sacral treatments. She dedicates her practice patients dealing with treatment for various cancers. With the belief in the effectiveness of both of those differing sides of body and energy work I decided on a formal education in Kinesiology, receiving my Bachelor's of Science from the University of Texas, and surrounded myself with practitioners of acupuncture, reiki, yoga, and structural integration. After working for Equinox Fitness Clubs for many years, directing the personal training department on client retention and behavioral change strategy, I started an endeavor that would solidify my understanding of how structural integration can benefit both athletes and individuals engaged in regular exercise. I, myself, started practicing mixed martial arts and sought treatment of a structural integration based sports massage therapist. He healed me every week, allowing me to compete with those mixed martial artists that were 10+ years my junior. The next evolution in my understanding of the body came when I took a 1 year global sabbatical, experiencing and studying massage in 30 different countries, including Thailand and Turkey.
