Daniel Tsukayama, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist & Certified in The Rolf Method of Structural Integration

Born and raised in Hawai’i, as a kid I discovered a connection to the island ecology that remains my most reliable reference to basic sanity. Building on this relationship, I spent the first several years of my adult life living and working in some of Hawai’i’s most remote places, including the uninhabited islands and atolls of the Northwestern Hawaiian archipelago. My experiences as a field biologist in these places have helped to form my understanding of the endless beauty that arises from healthy ecosystems. While my appreciation of ecological patterns continues to inform my life, my undying intrigue with our species’ tenuous reputation on the planet has incurably blurred the margin between the observer and the observed. The endless source of inspiration emerging from these margins has­ most effectively made me a student of the human body, and I have come to fancy it as both hologram and metaphor of the cosmos at large.

My interest in bodywork began in 2009 with Hawaiian Lomilomi, which emphasizes practitioners’ cultivation of awareness as precedent to manual manipulation. With this basic approach I have been given the creative ability to call from a variety of tools. I am most recently a student and practitioner of The Rolf method of Structural Integration which both challenges and validates my understanding of bodywork’s ability to affect meaningful change.

It is with a natural faith in our collective spirit and a keen curiosity about the experience of being human that I hope to inspire health and creativity in others.
