Congrats to personal trainer Tyler Kragerud on earning his licensed massage therapist (LMT) credential from East West College of the Healing Arts! He adds this to his Fascial Stretch Therapy and personal training certifications to deliver holistic and comprehensive services to the Hyatt Training community.

“My focus as a massage therapist is on providing manual therapy for those looking to enhance movement, performance, and wellbeing through a blend of Tui Na (Chinese massage), fascial release (structural bodywork), and deep tissue massage. These modalities combine well allowing healing at multiple levels including structural and energetic.

Tui Na can be both relaxing and invigorating at the same time which suits our community of working professionals who need to stay engaged throughout the workweek. It also couples well with orthopedic issues commonly experienced in the gym and recreation. Tui Na is commonly performed with clothes on and combines effortlessly with Fascial Stretch Therapy, easily integrating into a full therapeutic session or pre/post workout add-on.

Structural work resonates with me in terms of observing the body as a whole system interconnected by fascia. It makes sense to strive for full-body alignment and fascial balance to create a sense of ease, especially with reoccurring issues. I believe massage can play an integral role in weight loss, stress management, educating body awareness, recovery, and rehabilitation.”
