Alex Garcia, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist

Alex brings compassion, intention, anatomical expertise and the connection of food, movement & bodywork to Root. Having a background in Counseling Psychology as a Pediatric Eating Disorder Group Therapist, Alex has an earnest desire to help people heal through whole body health modalities. In 2021, he pivoted his role from a Group Therapist to a Massage Therapist after graduating from East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland.

His passion for whole body health through food, movement and bodywork led him to Root Whole Body, where he now purposefully practices massage. Alex is fascinated with the power and capability of the body – and is especially fulfilled to help support active clients to do what they love to do most. A massage experience with Alex is one that is deep, slow and relaxing. He specializes in Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Trigger Point Therapy techniques. He is also skilled at Myofascial Release, Cupping, Hot Himalayan Salt Stones and Sports Massage. As an anatomical expert, Alex also enjoys educating his clients about how their muscles function and how massage benefits optimal muscular health.
