David R. Almo, MA, CMT, ESMT 

While David R. Almo was in elementary school he developed a curiosity in the study of the human body. In Junior High he was introduced to weight training and fitness from a simple PE class, and these two early interests lead him to getting a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology from California State University, Chico.

He stayed at Chico State to pursue a Master of Arts degree during which time he taught Exercise Physiology Labs, was involved in numerous research studies and projects and was a peer advisor.  The ever growing understanding of the human body, anaotmy, physiology, kinesiology, that was what interested him the most. Once he earned his M.A. David then started studying massage therapy, something that had a longtime pull for him.

With the indirect encouragement from a friend and “the planets being aligning just right” he took his first massage class and began his jounrey into the world of the Healing Arts.  With his previous education David brought an understanding of anatomy and physiology to massage sessions and classes...




Energy work? What exactly is this?


Let’s start with some definitions of energy:

  • dynamic quality

  • a usually positive spiritual force

  • a fundamental entity of nature that is transferred between parts of a system in the production of physical change within the system and usually regarded as the capacity for doing work.


Now let's bring quantum physics in with how we can and do utilize energy for ourselves and those around us.


“...realize that we are all energy, radiating our own unique energy signature. Feelings, thoughts and emotions play a vital role, quantum physics helps us see the significance of how we all feel. If all of us are in a peaceful loving state inside, it will no doubt impact the external world around us, and influence how others feel as well.


“Studies have shown that positive emotions and operating from a place of peace within oneself can lead to a very different experience for the person emitting those emotions and for those around them.” (Nothing is Solid & Everything is Energy – Scientists Explain the World of Quantum Physics, by Arjun Walia, September 27, 2014.)


We have all experienced this.  We’ve been around those people that when they walk into a room, the room seems to brighten, and likewise when others enter the room the lights dim.  And I’m sure you have been around a certain person or place, and you know that something isn’t right, you get those “bad vibes.”  That’s energy at work.


“Even though the body appears to be material, it is not. In the deeper reality, your body is a field of energy, transformation, and intelligence.”- Deepak Chopra


So energy is all around us, its in us, and it is us, and it goes by different names.  It has been called chi by the Chinese, ki by Japanese, prana in Sanskrit, or Life Force ...


“The real question is not whether life exists after death.  The real question is whether you are alive before death.”
