About my Practice
I bring to the table over 44 years of experience doing massage, and 41 years teaching. I graduated from a 1000-hour massage therapy course at Lindsey Hopkins in Miami in 1976 and from Bastyr University in Seattle as a Naturopathic Doctor in 1984.
I owned and directed a state-approved massage school, Healing Arts Institute, from 1990 to 2011. I ran the school so that I could have a venue to teach, and so I could bring in great teachers that I wanted to learn from. I have produced videos (now DVDs) on Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Side Lying Massage, and Massage Cupping that are sold and used in massage schools worldwide. I also have the DVDs online in the Massage Technique Library at www.massagelibrary.com
Since selling my school I have had more time to travel and teach advanced massage workshops in schools around the US, Canada, and Australia. My workshop schedule is at https://massagelibrary.com/events/
I have the great fortune of being able to share office space with my wife, Mariko Mally, RN, MFT. Mariko is an excellent marriage and family therapist. Our practices are complementary, as she sees people for their mental and emotional concerns and I see people for their physical concerns. We are now practicing in the house in Roseville where Healing Arts Institute began in 1990.
In my practice, I use a variety of techniques from Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, and Orthopedic Massage to help clients with chronic pain. Orthopedic Massage works with the muscles and connective tissue to bring balance in the body, relieving stresses on joints that can cause dysfunction and chronic pain. The goal is to help give you a greater pain-free range of motion.
I also offer a teaching practice in which massage therapists bring in their clients and we work on them together.
Please note that although I am trained as a Naturopathic Doctor, I practice as a massage therapist. If you need help with a medical condition I can refer you to a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the area.

Take I-80 East to the Auburn Blvd./Riverside exit (exit 102). Stay in the left lane at the exit so that you go around the cloverleaf and go north on Riverside. Stay on Riverside for one mile until it ends then turn right on Douglas. 112 Douglas is a one story house on the right side of the street.
Directions from Rocklin and points East:
Take I-80 West to the Douglas Blvd. exit (exit 104). Turn right on Douglas and go 1 mile. 112 Douglas is a one-story house on the left just before Douglas ends at Riverside and Vernon Streets.
Feel free to park behind the house. The signs about towing are for people that are not our clients.
About 1 and 1/2 years ago, I performed a set of heavy one-armed kettlebell presses without warming up properly. A dumb thing to do, I must admit. I tore my right rotator cuff in two areas--the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. Both were grade-two tears and took a long time to heal. Unfortunately, once they did heal, I still could not enjoy my normal workouts because of pain and weakness. Fortunately, Dr. Mally was able to work on me and helped me obtain a full recovery.
Any movement involving force or weight-bearing hurt. Evidently, I had a lot of scar tissue at the sites of healing. Dr. Mally did several sessions, using his multi-directional eccentric contraction therapy. He explained to me that this broke down scar tissue that had formed improperly and allowed the creation of more functional tissue, and he was correct. I could feel myself getting stronger and moving in less pain after each session. After about 7 sessions, I was able to perform exercises that were not possible for me to do before therapy because of the pain involved.
I highly recommend Dr. Mally's work--he has a deep knowledge of orthopedic therapy and a dedication to healing. I had met over the years many people he had helped, which is why I sought him out for my own therapy.
