Dan Vigil began his professional life in the corporate world, maintaining a nine-to-five lifestyle until he realized that he wanted to have a more direct impact on others. And so he delved into the healing art of massage therapy and opened Alvino Massage in 2008. Despite his skilled hands, he claims his most valued gift is his ability to listen, which he uses to consult with clients about their ailments and interpret the whispers of seashells. He untangles striations with several modalities, including hot stone, Swedish, and Thai, which he trained for in Thailand. On his website, Dan publishes regular newsletters about the benefits of massage.
