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 un-average joe by all descriptions, he was born in Rome during the summer of love, raised in North Africa and the Middle East as an airline child, was college educated in the USA, and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.
His dubious claims to fame are:
Starting in elementary school, Alex has had the good fortune to practice the basics of Judo, Shaolin, Wing Chun, Taekwondo, Taijiquan, ROSS, Systema, and Aikido with a number of world-class benefactors but the highest rank he has personally achieved is green ie. a belt to hold his pants up.
Although his women friends say Alex carries himself quite handsomely, he is a natural 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.
