Derik Newton, LMT
About my Work

My Journey into the science and art of bodywork has been one of healing and discovery. The extent to which change can occur through sensitively trained human touch was unknown to me as a former athlete living with chronic pain from an incurable lumbar spine injury.  I understand how pain and decreased mobility can affect the whole person – body, mind, and soul – and I now revere the potential for healing that bodywork can offer.

I am a graduate of Cortiva Institute, have studied Myofascial Therapy with David Vendetti, and trained in Reiki with Shelley Devine.  These experiences have helped me to understand that deep tissue manipulation can be performed with sensitivity and compassion, and that profound transformation can flow from the lightest touch.  My practice today focuses on effective communication with the client in order to achieve his or her goal, whether it be minor stress reduction or significant structural change.  I am a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
