RAF KING - OWNER OF LIVING KINETICS
Licensed Massage Therapist & Qi-Gong Practitioner
"I've been doing bodywork since 2008 and I have even had the honor of being a Massage Instructor at the Arizona School of Massage Therapy for 5 years. I got into bodywork because of my father. He was in a terrible accident with a drunk driver and the result was a faulty spine. Through bodywork and re-patterning exercises we were able to get him off of pain medication and get him mobile again. I'm thoroughly convinced I can do this for more than just him!"

Why We Do What We Do
This service is truly all about you. Its always been our dream to help those who truly need it. We have a desire to reach out to those who can't normally afford massage/bodywork, yet need it the most. We believe that everyone deserves pain free mobility at a pain free cost.
According to Dr. Kelly Starrett, "98% of dysfunction you find in your typical gym is just preventable disease." Meaning, not only can you stop pain 98% of the time, but you can also prevent it from coming back! We, Living Kinetics, are dedicated to the belief that 98% of the time we can do something about it. We do what we do because 98% of the time, there's hope.
Living: not dead, having life; currently active or being used; having the form of a person who is alive.
Kinetics: a branch of science that deals with the effects of forces upon the motions of material bodies or with changes in a physical or chemical system; the rate of change in such a system; the mechanism by which a physical or chemical change is effected.
Living Kinetics: For us, Living Kinetics represents the study of lifestyle changes that impact your quality of movement.
Why the name Living Kinetics and Why the Wolf Pack Mentality...
We chose the name Living Kinetics because we believe that it defines what we focus on as wellness practitioners: the science of living movement and the effects that those movements and forces have on quality of life.
Also, it sounds pretty cool!
Why do we act like a bunch of wild dogs? Well, we don't actually hang out in a group, howling, hunting, scavenging, and fighting for the role of pack leader but we do like to take after the wolf in a few other ways. We believe in providing leadership and clarity to those who are searching for it; we believe that we can more easily travel from a place of pain to a place of mobility if we are working together; we believe that as a team we are unstoppable. We also admire the wolf's natural movement abilities and strive to enlighten the Human Animal of your own capabilities!
We like to think of Living Kinetics not as a business but as a community. A place where people of all levels of wellness can feel welcome and encouraged. We offer you a community of support and of hope, a community that has a defined sense of leadership and guidance, and a community that will work together to ensure the attainment of your wellness goals and the survival of your quality of life.
Welcome, my friends, to the Living Kinetics pack...
