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 a word play on Nahuatl: Nahuatl (English: /ˈnɑːwɑːtəl/; Nahuatl pronunciation: [ˈnaːwatɬ], known historically as Aztec, is a language or group of languages of the Uto-Aztecan language family. 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 medicine wheel. The black/West: signifies the spiritual, Yellow/East: signifies emotional, red/South: signifies mental and white/North: signifies the physical. Massage tends to all these elements in an effort to help you center yourself again. Whenever any one of these elements are thrown off it creates a domino effect. It is very important to make sure that these do not go ignored. Yes we are strong and resilient but we are not invincible. We have every right to take care of our self. Massage is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. We only have one body. Materialistic things are replaceable, our body, mind and spirit are not.
Be kind to your body and your body will be kind to you.
