Skyler Thomas acquired his Master’s in Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine from AIMC Berkeley, where he learned to apply traditional therapeutic modalities such as Chinese herbalism and acupuncture in conjunction with conventional medical protocols. His interest in acupuncture started after experiencing its ability to elicit mental paradigm shifts and tap into the body’s self healing potential, and believes it should be widely accessible.

Skyler worked in the sports medicine department of UC Berkeley, coordinating his treatments with the training regimens and rehab schedules of athletes from across the UC’s sports department.

Outside of sports medicine Skyler worked at West Berkeley Family Practice treating under-served communities and experiencing the breadth of medical conditions endemic to those populations.
In addition to acupuncture, Skyler is proficient in herbal medicine, cupping, electro-acupuncture, rice-grain moxibustion and myofascial bodywork.

Eric Espinoza is a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) who began his interest in body mechanics many years ago. Eric has always known he wanted to help people the best that he could but was never sure how he could help. He started at Long Beach City College studying body mechanics and was very focused on athletic training and anatomy courses. He progressed his interest and moved to California Healing Arts where he was introduced to the world of massage.

Starting at California Healing Arts, he knew he belonged there and that this was his calling. Eric graduated top of his class focusing his craft in Sports Bodywork, Neuromuscular, Myofascial Release, and Medical Massage. He graduated in 2018 and passed state exams to become a LMT. Eric was able to bring healing to those that were in pain and relief to those that were stressed, so he created Balanced Body Massage. Now he aspires to bring a sense of healing to everyone that he meets, through the touch of massage.

As our lives tend to speed up we focus on all of the work and all the stress that comes with it, his goal is to provide time for those who search for a healing experience. We all put our busy schedules in front of our health, and he wants to show those who take the time how they can incorporate little things into their busy schedules to promote relaxation. During your session, Eric’s desire is to provide you relief from pain and stress, by creating a personalized approach based on your individual needs.

Eric looks forward to creating a wonderful experience for you, through the healing art of massage!
