Brian Jose

Brian Jose- I am a licensed massage therapist located in the historic Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Having been a commercial fisherman for over a decade, I understand how over-use and occupation related pain and dysfunction can interfere with one's ability to enjoy life.

Through careful consideration, I cater each session to meet the needs of the client on an individual basis. Employing deep tissue techniques, trigger point therapy, breathwork and myofascial release, I bring awareness back to the body in order to achieve pain reduction and increased function. Athletes can maximize performace with my help. My injury treatment work gets results!

"The benefits of improved body awareness have helped me to overcome chronic pain and anxiety issues in my own life, and now I enjoy bringing this experience to my clients!"


Angela Amos- I found massage therapy out of necessity. In my mid-twenties, after a decade of chronic back pain due to sports injuries and poor nutrition, I had my first massage appointment. The relief I experienced was unimaginable, I had forgotten what it felt like to be out of pain. These ten years since, I have been on a personal health quest. Through regular massage treatments, a yoga and weight training routine and proper nutrition, I am maintaining a lifestyle that allows me freedom of movement and recreation that I thought was lost to me. With this new strength and passion for learning, I graduated from Port Townsend School of Massage in 2008 with the intention of inspiring my clients to be active participants in their health and vitality.

"I combine muscle specific, effective treatment work with relaxing deep tissue massage for a session that is tailored to your needs. I combine a variety of techniques, including Myofascial Release, Neurofascial Release, Thai Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Alexander Technique and Lomi Lomi. I am most practiced in treating chronic low back, hip and neck pain and am prenatal/postpartum certified."

Brian Bacungan- I trained for years, blending calisthenics, powerlifting, martial arts, and meditation. However, a lack of self-care left me with a tense, achey, broken-feeling body.

Massage therapy helped me to discover techniques I that could use to help restore balance and reconnect with my body. I graduated from Cortiva Institute in 2012. Today, I use my love of anatomy and physiology to deliver massages that not only work the body but educate the mind.
