A professional massage therapist with a bachelor’s degree in physical education, Brazilian-born Alfredo Araujo customizes his massage sessions to address the therapeutic needs of each individual. Deeply relaxing, the gentle techniques of Swedish massage range from the gliding strokes of effleurage to the rhythmic taps of tapotement, helping to relieve joint stiffness and foster circulation. A firmer modality, deep-tissue massage utilizes directed pressure to dissipate adhesions nestled below the surface, making it well suited for athletes and those training for a cartwheel marathon. Pressure from fingers and palms helps to promote healing during shiatsu sessions, and water aids in the facilitation of therapeutic thermoregulatory reactions during hydrotherapy sessions and squirt-gun fights.
Family Massage Therapy with Alfredo Araujo
South America may seem like an odd place to learn shiatsu massage, but that’s where Alfredo Araujo first discovered his passion for it. Born in Brazil, a country with a large number of Japanese immigrants and strong ties to Japanese culture, Alfredo began studying shiatsu techniques. He came to the United States to continue his education and earn his license, learning Swedish, sports, deep-tissue, and hydrotherapy modalities along the way. Today, Alfredo aims to reduce pain and promote relaxation with his soothing treatments.
