Gil R.

Massage Therapist "CMT"

Gil Rutherford is a state licensed, nationally certified manual therapy professional who uses a variety of traditional and specialized bodywork techniques to help clients improve their overall health and well-being.

With more than 20 years of experience in the healing arts, Gil initiated his study of the body and mind by exploring Buddhist meditation practice back in 1985. He was educated in Costa Rica before founding Creative Peace Threads, a non-profit organization committed to aiding Mayan people.

Gil continued to expand the scope of his skills through further research in India, Scotland, South East Asia, Central America and the Caribbean, and considers himself a "lifelong learner" in all areas affecting life on earth. He earned his license in manual therapy bodywork in 2007, first in Oregon and then in California, and has studied alchemical healing, reiki and CranioSacral Therapy.

Gil continues to build upon his skills with the study of Visceral Manipulation and Osteopathic Manipulation, as they apply to soft tissues within his practice. He specializes in therapeutic massage for injury recovery and rehabilitation, and has worked in tandem with chiropractors and physical therapists to help his clients overcome complex musculoskeletal conditions.
