Izzy Sanchez, LMT, CSC I, SOMA Breath Adv. Instructor

I have a mission in life: To help you live a joyous and pain-free life. I started this path in the strength and conditioning field as I wanted you to experience the freedom, energy, confidence, and joy that only a fit body and mind make possible. But there was a problem. Amid the success stories there were those whose progress came to an abrupt halt by unexplainable injuries. Eventually, my own injuries made me understand how hopeless conventional medicine was at providing healthy long-term relief, and motivated me to look for my own answers. When my search brought me to the world of Manual Therapy medicine and I finally experienced relief, I knew I’d make it part of my life. Of all the forms of Manual Therapy I studied, Counterstrain became my choice because of its uncanny ability to resolve the most stubborn issues through highly precise, deep, but gentle techniques. I’ve had the pleasure of completing every Counterstrain course offered by the Jones institute, and to be part of the first official graduating class of the Counterstrain Mastery Program—now the Counterstrain Academy—under the guidance of Timothy Hodges. And now, as of August 12th, 2023, I'm also part of the first official class of Certified Fascial Counterstrain Therapists (CSC I). Counterstrain has made a profound difference in both my personal and professional lives. I feel blessed for having developed this amazing set of skills that help people understand that there’s a rational answer to their pain, and that if they do their part, they, too, will find healing. My immense gratitude transcends words and motivates me every day to keep learning and improving as a therapist and as a human. I look forward to welcoming you to my practice. Coach Izzy
