BRIAN COOK

LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST, CERTIFIED QIGONG INSTRUCTOR

Since 1985 Brian has practiced massage inspired by methods of the West and the East. Western techniques include Swedish Massage, Polarity, Sports Massage, Myofascial Cupping and the Trager Approach. Turning to the East, Brian studied Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Tok Sen Massage, Tuina Chinese Acupressure and Qigong Energy Healing.

But throw away the syllabus. A massage session is not about technique, it’s about you, the client. Together we can encourage effortless movement and cultivate a peaceful state of mind.
