Coral Esparza, LMBT
Since a young age, the health care field has always been Coral’s calling. She started off as a Veterinary Assistant, then went back to school to become a Dental Assistant. Although she enjoyed the knowledge, compassion and understanding she gained in both fields, she felt it was not where she was meant to be. In 2013, Coral was involved in a car accident that caused significant neck injury. She decided to pursue a chiropractor for treatment and it was during this treatment that she met a massage therapist that helped her reduce the pain and tension from her injury.
Amazed at the results, Coral decided to go back to school to became a massage therapist. Her new goal was to make an overall impact on people who, like her, had suffered some form of trauma. She started working for a spa, which she enjoyed, but soon found that deep tissue massage was a more effective form of treatment rather than a relaxing massage, which just reduced stress. She found a chiropractic office that was hiring and thus began her to wellness.
Deep tissue and myotherapy is crucial in order to break down scar tissues adhesion to the surrounding injured area. A holistic approach to treatment with this type of therapy produces amazing, life changing results. Coral has always been able to gain a deeper understanding of massage in general but continues to look for new way to improve her techniques to provide the highest level of care for each person. She feels beyond blessed to have the opportunity to work for yet another team whose goal is to make a difference for every person that walks in the door. She looks forward to meeting each one of you to help you live your best life!
Rolfing Structural Integration
Mike’s 20+ years of unique bodywork experience allows him to view each unique client’s body as a puzzle of relatable intricacies waiting to be solved. He began with getting curious about his own body and wound up joining a martial arts class. He was hooked and quickly realized how moving in non-linear ways often reduced pain and began integrating a new sense of wholeness in his own body. A short time later he needed to learn more and applied to National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL to begin a career in massage therapy. This gave him an extensive background in anatomy and physiology. Having a massage practice brought about a dual sense of integration; his techniques began helping people reduce pain and he was feeling better in his own body while doing the work. Mike continued working on clients and also began developing stretching and exercise protocols clients could use to further their healing.
That still wasn’t enough! Mike found Rolfing Structural Integration™ when a visit to his Rolfer fixed chronic mid-back pain; by working on his ankle! He was so intrigued he found a way to make it to the school that year. A career in Structural Integration has allowed Mike to view your body in many connected dimensions. He can watch you walk and he sees why you are compensating, even if that is not the area that hurts. He blends soft and firm techniques to bring about profound changes in posture and movement. Sometimes this is uncomfortable and it should never hurt. Mike will find a way to deactivate your nervous system and help you let go of patterns which may not suit you anymore. He also practices Rolf Movement™ which is just as integrative as the table work and gives you tools you can use at any time.
Mike uses his integrated body to enjoy yoga, mountain biking and hiking throughout forests, mountains and beaches.
