Douglas Garcia is a Licensed Massage Therapist (in NJ, with PA license pending) and Reiki Master. In 2014, he graduated from the National Massage Therapy Institute, where he studied neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, sports massage, geriatrics, pre- and post- natal massage, active isolated stretching, deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and anatomy / physiology.
Douglas's journey as a healing practitioner began in May of 2013, when he was attuned to work with angels as an Integrated Energy Therapy practitioner, and when he, soon after, advanced to intermediate level. He became a Reiki master in February of 2017; thus, it was energy work that introduced Douglas to the world of healing modalities.
In October of 2014, Douglas became a practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, further continuing the empowerment process. NLP is a set of processes that work with mental and emotional behavior to inspire mastery; with the tools of NLP, one is enabled to transform oneself by interrupting patterns of behavior and by anchoring positive empowering emotions. These tools are like a road map to the unconscious mind and can be great accelerators for personal growth and development. Throughout 2014 and 2015, Douglas studied iridology, which involves an evaluation of a person's iris to best understand their individual health type, to determine inherent strengths and weaknesses, and to assess specific organs and systems of that individual. Through iridology, Douglas has developed an enhanced method for approaching a person’s unique level of stress, areas of tensions, and biological influences of physical discomforts.
Douglas’s approach to healing is intuitive, multidimensional, accurate, and effective. His knowledge as to the structure and function of the body is well-established and inspires his passion for healthy living. He considers himself to be in a constant state of learning of the mind- body- and spirit connection, and finds joy in the small things in life, and feels equally happy for the health and success of others as he is for his own health and success.
Douglas is currently offering Reiki at the Healing Arts Collective, until his massage therapy license is transferred to Pennsylvania, at which time he will open his schedule for massage therapy. Stay tuned!
