Alex has a couple dozen minor hobbies and two main jobs: he is first of all a dad and then a somatic therapist.
He tries not to do therapy on his kid nor daddy his clients. However, he does have informed beliefs on just about everything and speaks his mind fluently in Italian, French, and Spanish.
An average joe he was born in Rome during the summer of love, raised in North Africa and the Middle East as an airline kid then migrated to the USA to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology which he uses to great benefit to understand the world.
Some of his most cool claims to fame are:
Starting in elementary school, Alex has had the good fortune to study the movement concepts of Judo, Shaolin, Wing Chun, Taekwondo, Taijiquan, ROSS, Systema, Aikido, and the S.P.E.A.R system with a number of world-class benefactors.
Due to an extremely low pain-tolerance that would make most he-men giggle, the highest rank he has achieved is: a belt to hold his trousers up. Only comes in handy in situations that would cause regular humans to expel a cold hard brick.
Although his many women friends say Alex carries himself quite handsomely, he is a recovering klutz due to early mercury poisoning and close-calls with immovable objects. His training and long-term self-healing work has enabled him to live normally and encounter banana-peel-moments with face-saving grace and aplomb.
Renowned for his mild demeanor, mindful care, therapeutic intuition, and gentle bed-side manner, Alex could never hurt a fly however he does have an intensely serious side.
He once morphed into a green hulk in order to scare off five attackers who still don’t know what hit them.
He loves hanging out at Makerspaces with his child and facilitating the imagination run wild.
Often found at local playgrounds with other kids and parent friends, he welcomes any opportunity to brachiate on the monkey bars or roll in the grass.
With his trusty iPad on hand he likes to study anatomy, compose a sonnet, or add a few paragraphs to an ebook on personal ergonomics that he hopes will revolutionize the way people recover from myofascial pain.
Alex’s experience with massage and bodywork goes back almost twenty years and yet he charges a very accessible low price in order to keep therapy affordable for people from all walks of life.
He is available to consult with new clients by prior appointment at his office in Mountain View, California.
