My name is Gavin Herr and I am a Bodyworker in Santa Cruz. I graduated from the National Holistic Institute where I studied Massage Therapy. I had previously graduated from Whittier College with my B.A. in Kinesiology in 2014 and followed my now-wife to Santa Cruz for her schooling. Now that we're here, we couldn't picture a better setting. I am currently working out of Precision Physical Therapy, but am happy to make house visits when it fits in my schedule.
A session with me will begin with a discussion of previous injuries and conditions to make sure our session is therapeutic and not taking you back 2 steps in your recovery. Then we will go over your activity level and any problem areas. Once I have all the logistics, we can begin the bodywork.
I perform focused bodywork for each client, incorporating Swedish with Deep Tissue, Myofascial techniques, Trigger Point work, sports massage, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching. I find that the best work is done by blending these modalities together and using their strongest aspects, where appropriate, to assist your body in the recovery process.
If you're looking to learn a bit more about me and my approach to massage therapy, simply give me a call or send me an email. If you and a group of friends are interested in getting some bodywork, contact me and ask about group rates! I look forward to hearing from you and should respond within 24 hours.
