Brendan Van Valkenburgh
Clinical Expertise:

Brendan has experience with clinical, spa, and in-home settings although his focus has mainly been treating acute and chronic pain in a clinical setting. He feels that an informed patient is empowered with the necessary tools to navigate the sometimes daunting road to wellness. He uses an incredibly effective three-step approach to his treatment. This includes:

1. The examination and removal of factors that have caused and are perpetuating the pain that are often hidden in the obvious subtleties of everyday life;

2. A direct and intuitive process of locating and releasing adhesions that have formed in the soft tissues of the body, which restrict mobility and cause sometimes debilitating pain; and,

3. Training the patient how to address their pain using simple and remarkably effective methods that can be practiced by the patient at home, on the job, or wherever pain may strike

Philosophy of Care:

“I am inspired by and grateful for every opportunity to return a sense of relief to a life where living with pain has become a reality. An informed patient is a patient empowered with the necessary tools to navigate the sometimes-daunting road to wellness.”


Brendan received his certification in massage therapy from the Career Academy in Anchorage, Alaska. He also became certified in Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy from the Myo Pain Relief Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Extracurricular Activities and Personal Interests:

Brendan celebrates and studies a diet of raw, organic food and instructs in basic raw food classes. He greatly enjoys life in fatherhood, art, music and outdoor recreation.
