The significance behind my logo and name is not only my way of paying homage to my ancestors but also coincides with what I do for a living. Nawat is short for Nahuatl, an ancient language which is on the brink of extinction. It is shortened because many people have trouble pronouncing Nahuatl correctly. Spelling Nahuatl as Nawat assures that when you are reading it you are also pronouncing it correctly. When I am massaging, my hands are communicating with your muscles through touch. I can feel the muscles that are holding, I can feel when they are relaxed, I can feel when they are tensing up and I can feel when they are releasing.Based on what your muscles tell me I modify my touch accordingly.
The pin wheel in the middle is the Native American medicine wheel. The black signifies the spiritual, Yellow signifies emotional, red signifies mental and white signifies the physical; massage tends to all these elements in an effort to help you center yourself again. Whenever any one of these elements is thrown off it creates a domino effect which is why it is very important to make sure that you do not ignore any one of these. Yes you are strong and resilient but you are not invincible. You have every right to take care of yourself. Massage is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. You only have one body. Materialistic things are replaceable, your body, mind and spirit are not. Be kind to your body and your body will be kind to you.
