Byron Wild, LMT, MBLEX, AMTA Member
Byron is a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute. He believes the foundation of healthy living is a synchronized mind and body and that his role as a massage therapist is to support clients explore and develop this connection for themselves. Every massage session is a tremendous way to get in our bodies and directly experience relaxation, ease, and dynamic strength. This felt reference point helps us orient to the demands of daily life in healthy ways. Before moving to DC in 2017, he spent more than 8 years living and working in meditation retreat centers in the United States and Canada. For him, massage is the hands-on complement to his contemplative training and Byron tries to bring the two together in his holistic, thorough, and interactive approach. He enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, and any opportunities he can find to be in nature. He also enjoys gardening, cooking and preserving food, and attempting to woo his girlfriend's cat - with no enduring success yet!

Mayumi Ameno, RM
Mayumi is a Japanese Master of Gendai Reiki Ho System. She enjoys her energy work in a variety of modalities including Applied Kinesiology, tuning fork sound therapy, and Hemi-sync guided energy healing. Her unique healing methods involve using the kinesiology muscle test and 14 tuning forks. Each tuning fork has the same frequency as one of the 14 of the Chinese Acupuncture Meridians. These body meridians serve as energy passageways throughout the body. Mayumi uses these techniques to unblock energy congestion in a client's body meridian and tune the imbalances in his or her mind, body, and soul. Mayumi works with Hemi-Sync technology, which mixes binaural beats, music, and other natural sounds to enhance brainwave activity in a variety of manners. Through spiritual guidance from not only her clients but also from other outside realms, Mayumi uses Hemi-Sync to help clear and relieve negativity from her clients' minds. Her Reiki work induces deep relaxation on both conscious and unconscious levels. She aims to reduce stress and pain, while activating her client's healing potential.
