Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Lymphedema Therapist, Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

Peter Shin has over 25 years of experience in therapeutic massage therapy. He began his journey learning Asian bodywork techniques in South Korea, studying acupressure,moxibustion, and cupping therapy. His motivation came from necessity, as his wife had debilitating lower back pain and he was determined to seek relief for her. As a result from his efforts, she is now in good health and their family of four is flourishing.

Upon completion of massage school training, Peter became Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, as well as a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. Although Peter performs massage therapy in several modalities, his special focuses are in deep tissue massage, acupressure, moxibustion, cupping, reflexology, Swedish gymnastics (Sport Massage), Thai massage, and Lymphedema therapy.

From experience, Peter believes that to receive massage therapy on a regular basis is one of the best health investments an individual can make. Over the years of being a massage therapist, he continues to research and study the human anatomy and physiology as he finds the human body a mystifying work of art and healing. His passion and drive to keep learning about human anatomy and healing is what sets him apart from any therapeutic massage therapist out there.

In addition to providing incredible healing therapy to Gentle Wellness Center patients, Peter enjoys belting out his favorite tunes as singing is his hobby of choice.
