Ashkan Hajighafouri, C.M.T.


I believe that one of the most powerful forms of healing is the human touch. Through Massage Therapy, I will facilitate your body's natural ability to heal itself. Specializing in Swedish and Deep Tissue, I understand the importance of well-maintained muscles and how taking care of them helps us in our day-to-day lives. I graduated from the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville with honors and became State Certified 2 days prior. I chose this profession because I wanted to better the world one body at a time, through the benefits of massage, using hands powered by compassion. So, come with me as we go beyond chiropractic, and step through the door of Massage Therapy.


Mark Nguyen, C.M.T.

I Graduated from the National Holistic Institute - Emeryville.

My training included 900 educational hours in both Western and Eastern modalities. While being in school, I also juggled externships, working the public clinic as a therapist and supervisor, and tutoring fellow students as well.

My compassionate nature gives me the ability to easily connect with clients to better help facilitate their healing.

Throughout my massage therapy practice, I have become comfortable with all types of clients and understand that each person and body is different, and therefore needs a fresh understanding and approach to properly meet individual client needs.
