After a 15-year career in the culinary arts as a pastry Chef, Roman was inspired to shift his career towards the healing arts.

In 2018, Roman became a Licensed Massage Therapist and began working for a national established franchise spa in Los Angeles.  That following year, Roman followed his desire to study for and complete a certification program to become a Craniosacral Therapist. Body work has become a very fulfilling transition that brings him joy and enthusiasm to learn and grow his skill set.

In 2020, Roman was introduced to Somatic Trauma Institute by a close friend. He has been working hard towards the S.E. certification which he hopes to fulfill on November 2023.

Roman likes the expression, 'when one door closes another door opens'. He has taken that expression to heart and hopes to be of service to his clients with all the tools he's learned and will continue to learn in the coming years. 

Roman brings strong hands yet receptive and gentle massage,
influenced by his Tai Chi training. He is known for "finding the troubled spots." Training in 
Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, and Integrative Craniosacral Therapy. 

 

Roman works to reinvigorate and move the body to activate your inner healer.
