Our journey began over 35 years ago, both of us working in the profession of Physical Therapy, starting in the clinical setting of hospitals, corporate Industrial, and eventually running a successful private practice together in La Jolla for 30 years. Throughout our careers there has been a passionate pursuit of greater knowledge and treatment principles of the amazing human body, and the refinement of the manual art of "hands on" skills. Our interests led to extensive training in the areas of Myofascial Release, Cranio-Sacral, Strain-Counterstrain, Energetic Balance, and various other systems of soft tissue/osseous bodywork. Additionally, along the way we received certification as Personal Trainers, Reiki Energy Practitioners, and Joel is a recognized Yoga Teacher very active in the San Diego area since 2010.
In 2017, we left the PT world to continue our paths of discovery, both enrolling and graduating from the Pacific College of Health and Science, gaining degrees in Massage Therapy, and Suzanne going further to receive the AAS/Associate of Applied Science in Holistic health. Our studies have been a fusion of Asian-Western bodywork. This fusion of traditional Western styles is paired with Asian techniques and a greater understanding and application of the acupuncture meridians, the associated internal organ systems, and the associated acupoints.
Our approach to treatment is a "hands-on" total body assessment of your symptoms and dysfunctions to facilitate a more complete balance of the spirit, mind, and body. We are committed to assisting each individual to reach their goals of optimal function and vitality. MYST Wellness is here for the best YOU!
