Izzy Shafey , RMT

With a natural attraction towards all things physical mixed with years of meditation experience, Izzy balances his innate inclination to keep moving with the serenity of stillness and finds these qualities at their peak while practicing Massage Therapy.

With a diverse background in mixed martial arts, sports and Yoga, firsthand experience has shaped Izzy’s understanding of the amazing feats the human body is capable of as well as how it feels when things are out of balance and need healing attention. Bringing full awareness to every session and every touch, he aims to bring vitality and tranquility to every treatment.

Although he recently graduated in April 2018 from the RMT program at WCCMT, he is a practiced body worker with a background of 4 years as a Zenthai Shiatsu therapist. This combination of Thai massage, and Japanese Shiatsu massage rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine along with his RMT training gives Izzy a unique approach to treating the human body from both a Western medicine perspective and a holistic Eastern comprehension.

A long time enthusiast of exercise, yoga, martial arts, surfing, healthy eating and an overall positive attitude, he practices what he preaches in his everyday life. Along with such an active lifestyle he is also familiar with injuries, and the recovery process required to overcome them lending him a compassionate mindset towards healing.

Izzy’s focus while at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy was in exploring the ailments commonly experienced by the modern worker, from postural misalignment, neck pathology, repetitive strain disorders, TMJ dysfunction, reduced mobility, headaches, sprains, strains and the most frequently experienced condition by everyone in our technologically driven age… stress!
