Luis is known for his ability to help his clients find the root cause of their injuries and heal them at a faster rate than they would be able to do elsewhere. Luis’ deep understanding of the detoxification systems allows him to aid tissue recovery more quickly than simply providing therapy. Along with his knowledge of Advanced Sports Therapy Techniques, Functional Integrated Exercise Programs and Nutrition Response Techniques, Luis is a highly skilled practitioner that can help any client with the journey to optimal wellness no matter where they are today.How Luis discovered his passion for helping others grew when he needed help himself. After experiencing an injury on the job in his previous work as a general machinist, he had a hard time finding the care he needed in order to fully recover. After exploring many paths for healing, Luis found relief with myofascial release therapy and sports massage therapy. This motivated him to learn more. By 1988 he had begun a new career in health focusing on sports massage at the time. By 1996, Luis had established himself and had the opportunity to work with two Olympic track athletes. With only six week left in trials the Harrison twins were both suffering from debilitating injuries to their legs and hips without finding relief. Luis was able to join their training team and help them compete at full strength in the ‘96 Olympics and take home two gold medals and a bronze.As his career and client base continued to grow, Luis needed his own space in order to continue his path. So he took a leap of faith and opened Mind Body Motion in 1998. By 2003 Luis had established Mind Body Motion as a staple in the community for health, healing and wellness. Luis has always thrived to expand his knowledge, which is how he discovered the C.H.E.K Institute, where he has become certified and Exercise Coach, Holistic Lifestyle Coach (Level II), and a C.H.E.K Practitioner (Level II).Luis had a vision to create a place where people could come to get constant results with their goals, whether that be injury repair, weight loss, internal healing, performance enhancement or pain relief. After decades of working toward this goal, Luis and the rest of the team at Mind Body Motion have become that place and will continue to strive towards excellence in the years to come.
