John Hatanaka, LMT

Kinetic Therapist / Manual Therapist

John Hatanaka has been practicing as a licensed massage therapist for the last eight years and predominately has worked in high end spas in the Aspen area. His healing arts originate from his foundation training in 2014 where he had the pleasure of studying at the Aspen Massage Institute. There he gained introductory experience in a variety of different modalities offered by a host of different instructors. He walked away gaining a specific interest in the more eastern based systems such as CranioSacral, Shiatsu, and Acupressure. While his practice is quite physical, helping to alleviate client’s various ache’s and pains, he also identifies quite strongly with being an energy worker and has explored the deeper depths of following the ancient Japanese art and clairsentient quality of Reiki. He comes from a Japanese background himself, which lends itself to a further synchronistic commonality with this form of energy work. While his path has come about quite organically, his vision is more spiritual in nature stemming from his travels to India in 2017.
