About the Practitioner

Cody Spann, LMP, License #MA60401812

My massage practice is science-based, which means that I avoid making claims that can't be backed up by evidence. For me, massage is a tool for helping people feel better, and I focus on techniques that have concrete, anatomical reasons for achieving this.

One of my specialties is working on office workers and other people who spend a lot of time at the computer. As a former office worker, I know the value of having a massage therapist listen to you and work on the areas that are most bothering you, whether that's your low back, shoulders, neck, wrists, or all of the above. Another specialty of mine is working on athletes pre- and post-workout and during the recovery period after a marathon or other intense event.

When giving a massage, I use my knowledge of anatomy and physiology, my understanding of multiple types of massage techniques, and information from the client to provide a massage that is beneficial and enjoyable. This can include relaxing Swedish massage, sports massage, deep tissue work, trigger point therapy, bits of Lomi Lomi, and PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) work.

Before getting into massage, I got a Bachelorer of Arts in Psychology from Western Washington University, found that I inexplicably enjoyed statistics, and went to work as a Research Analyst at Labor & Industries. After a few years I realized that I would probably be happier as a massage practitioner, so I went back to school at Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy and Massage, graduating in July of 2013. I love being able to see the results of my work - people coming out of my massage room more relaxed, less pained, with better range of motion, and just generally feeling better.
