Tao Body Worker
Classically trained in Asia in Eastern massage and healing energy modalities by the father of Tao Energy, Zack has developed a therapeutic repertoire called PolaMaxTM. The goal of the PolaMax treatment is to achieve the trifecta of wellness: balanced energy, efficient detoxification and improved circulation. When all three are optimized, we feel amazing. Zack’s integrative and intuitive approach allows him to work with your body and provide the treatments it most needs, at that moment. Typically, this combines the healing touch of massage along with intentional qi energy movement along the body’s twelve major meridians to create a deep state of relaxation so that healing can occur. You leave feeling calm, focused and energized—ready to face anything.
