about us


Takade Yasuo Kenneth 


Kenneth has been a working therapist and yoga teacher for almost 20 years. He specializes in treating chronic pain issues and injury with an eclectic bodywork style which incorporates both Eastern and Western ideas and modalities. Drawing from his experiences working with thousands of clients and years of study and teaching, Kenneth uses techniques drawn from Western therapies such as deep tissue and sports massage to Eastern therapies such as Shiatsu, Tui na, and Thai massage. For the last 10 years, he has been using a style incorporating Osteopathic theory and Traditional Thai yoga massage called Osteothai. Osteothai uses specific techniques that give back vitality and movement to problem areas while giving a holistic overall body treatment. Traditional stretching and compression techniques from Thai massage are blended with techniques that increase the range of motion in the clients joints and improves the circulation of blood and fluids that are needed for the body to recover itself. Gentle harmonic, rocking, pumping, rotational, and oscillatory movements bring down an overexcited nervous system and sets the stage for the rebalancing of a pained and injured body. It can dynamic in its approach, gentle if need be, or a combination of both according to what the patient's body is saying. Almost everyone can receive Kenneths treatments as there are few contraindicated conditions that prohibit this type of bodywork.
