Jon Stange

Jon Stange, LMT

Massage Therapist

Jon Stange is a practitioner of the highly specialized bodywork form known as Rolfing® structural integration, based the paradigm of fascial manipulation for lasting health.

Jon grew up in Malibu, Calif., where he cultivated a lifelong love of exercise and wellness. A "hands-on person" from the start, a career in massage therapy seemed like a natural progression for Jon, leading him to initiate a career in bodywork in 1995.

While Jon began his professional career in private practice and as an independent contractor for clinical wellness offices, health clubs and sporting events, by 2006 he sought to advance his skills through the study of structural integration. In 2007, he enrolled in the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, Colo., receiving his diploma soon after.

At Inner Light Manual Therapy, based in Santa Monica-Calif., Jon applies his lifelong passion for the visual arts to help clients envision, explore and discover comfort in their physical and mental selves. By deeply connecting with his clients, he has helped many to work through painful, chronic conditions and to find freedom from a variety of conditions.

For Jon, Rolfing® is a profound experience that he and his clients share together. "We are on a journey together to find meaning and clarity—to evolve," he says.

What to Expect

With Rolfing®, clients are asked to look inward to determine where imbalances stem from, making it in itself a unique modality. "We are trying to actually change someone's physical structure," says Jon. "The process is fairly simple, yet the complexities of understanding how the whole person is involved on an emotional, spiritual energetic path of healing can be challenging."
