About Alex

Hey guys welcome to my about me page. This is me interviewing me for Sports massage magazine. May happen. You never know. Meanwhile I am never sure whether to write autobiographically in the first or third person so um here we go…

Probodywork Massage LogoAlex 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 but he does offer good advice on demand and speaks his mind fluently in several languages.

Mostly a regular joe, he was born in Rome during the summer of love, attended American schools in North Africa and the Persian Gulf, came to Texas for his college degree.

Some of his most cool claims to fame are:

  • surviving a Masai ambush in Kenya
  • encountering a UFO in the Swiss alps
  • being disqualified from an ice hockey team for being Italian
  • seeing the Grateful Dead when they were all still alive
  • being in the room with Pere Aristide, Dan Quayle, and Yasser Arafat at the U.N. Human Rights Conference
  • shaking hands with Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins
  • throwing blessings into the fire at Shiva’s temple
  • visiting Jim Morrison at Pere Lachaise and Bob Marley at Nine Mile
  • crossing the Atlantic three times on a ship
  • and fifty+ times on a plane
  • watching Archbishop Milingo refuse to lead a group exorcism
  • receiving sweat lodge Inipi Wakan ceremony from Servando
  • substituting for the Byrds when they cancelled a show
  • teaching fish how to jump out of water
  • mountain biking the Big Bend from Texas to Mexico
  • riding a horse through midday traffic in Bombay
  • having his songs applauded by such greats as Django Mack and Joung-Sik Chung
  • chanting with Tibetan Lamas and meditating with Zen monks
  • dipping into every important repository of Holy Water in Rome
  • experiencing bioluminescence in the Arabian sea
  • crossing the English channel on a sailboat to experience oysters and champagne in France
  • spending two years living on the rooftops of Venice
  • friending a baby moray eel in Tahiti
  • clearing myofascial trigger points like there is no tomorrow

  • Starting in elementary school, Alex has received world-class beatings education in several martial art systems

    Judo
    Wushu
    Wing Chun
    Tai ji quan
    Tae Kwon Do
    S.P.E.A.R.
    Systema
    Aikido

    Due to an extremely low pain-tolerance that would make most he-men giggle, Alex has caused endless consternation to most of his teachers and the highest rank he has achieved is: a belt to hold his trousers up.

    Although some of his 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 martial art training and self-healing work have enabled him to live semi-normally and he encounters banana-peel-moments with face-saving grace and aplomb.

    Renowned for his therapeutic intuition and compassionate mind, Alex could never hurt a fly however he does have an intensely serious side. It is said that he once morphed into a green hulk to discourage his attackers.

    A regular at local playgrounds, he tries to inspire parent friends to find their inner child. Alex welcomes any opportunity to brachiate on the monkey bars or practice forward rolls in the grass.

    He loves hanging out at Makerspaces with the kids and facilitating the imagination run wild.

    With his trusty iPad on hand he likes to study anatomy, compose a sonnet for this blog or add a paragraph to an ebook that may someday 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 you at his office in Mountain View, California.
