DOMINIC QUIN-HARKIN, CMT
Certified and licensed in massage since 2008, Dominic is a San Rafael native and a well-balanced healer providing massage, energy balancing and life coaching in the SF Bay Area. He combines physical and emotional, western and eastern, medical and spiritual.
Before massage, his background includes being a 4-year college athlete (UC San Diego Men’s Water Polo), NYC-Trained in Dance (jazz, tap, ballet), and 8+ years of coaching (competitive swimming, water polo) from young ages to high school and college level. He has been practicing bio-energy balancing for 16 years, which focuses on psycho-somatic trauma release, clearing blocks and balancing chi. Dominic has been a lead therapist and trainer at Elements Massage in Greenbrae and has worked in spas in both Park City and Deer Valley, UT, as well as in celebrity gifting suites for the Sundance Film Festival and the Academy Awards.
His customized massages operate under the motto “muscles should be coerced and not bullied.” His deep tissue is patient without being forceful and painful. Sessions include helping clients gain knowledge of stretch, warm-up, and workout routines.
Being a “Gentle Giant”, Dominic caters to all types of clients ranging from Sports Injuries and Rehab to the stress-relief rejuvenation and pampering. Regardless of the modality used, the end result is feeling balanced and lighter, not the soreness commonly associated with deep massage. His featured modalities include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Therapy, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral, Prenatal, Reflexology, Lymphatic, and Reiki and Chakra Balancing.
In his free time, Dominic is also an actor and Jazz vocalist playing North Bay venues.
