Luke Shoemaker

Performance Specialist, Massage Therapist

Luke’s passion with the psychosomatic arts began with a study of psychology, where he began to explore the relationship with and interplay between the body and mind, and understanding it more so as one unit, the bodymind. By intentionally working with the neuromuscular reflexes and effectively eliciting hormonal stimuli, the efficacy of the session is improved. By incorporating elements of Shiatsu and Activated Isolated Stretching into the preparation and inter-set recovery, the quality and grace of the movement is optimized.
