After graduating from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology, Allen attended and graduated from the National Holistic Institute – San Jose Massage School. He is a Bay Area native and enjoys living a healthy, active lifestyle by playing sports, exercising and meditating daily. For the past 8 years while attending college and massage school, Allen has been coaching and mentoring young adults in badminton, a sport that he cherishes and plays during his free time.
Allen became a massage therapist to fulfill his purpose in life – to assist others in enhancing not only their physical health but also their emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. He practices many massage modalities including Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue and trigger point therapy, incorporating some or all if need be to address the specific needs of the client. Allen shares in author, teacher and psychotherapist David Richo’s philosophy that “our wounds (scars) are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
Allen has a passion from learning and growing from the experiences and lifestyles of others, and interested in traveling around the globe to experience what the world has to offer. During that journey, he will make sure to incorporate visits to Hawai’i, the Bahamas or anywhere else that has a beach.
