MASSAGE | MYOPRACTICS | SOUND HEALING
My early life was spent in Oregon and California, where I grew up in a family of creative artists and jewelers that allowed me to develop my artistic side. In high school I trained as a long distance runner and was one of the first high school runners sponsored by Nike. I went to the University of Oregon for rehabilitation of athletic injuries and ran for University of Oregon and almost made it to the Olympics. I then received a degree from the Heartwood Institute in California, one of the finest massage and holistic healing arts schools in the country.
My love for health and fitness brought me to become a body builder, personal trainer and massage therapist in NYC for three years. In 1997 I moved to Sedona where I discovered myopractics - a lost art that works much deeper than chiropractics - manipulating bones, muscle, and fascia. I learned from and apprenticed under Curt Harmon for three years - one of the greatest myopractors in the United States.
Sedona has become my home for the last 25 years with it’s amazing eclectic new age spiritual community. I was able to connect with like minded people and here discovered my love of sound healing. I love to combine sound healing with body work, energy healing and myopractics. These modalities combined have now become my specialty.
What is Myopractics?
Latin for "muscle practice" - Myopractics focuses on reliving pain and achieving deep relaxation. It is unique from chiropractics in that it begins by loosening up the tissues, fascia, tendons and muscles before manipulating the bones as a more holistic approach.
Sound Healing & Energy Work

"Vance is amazing!! He cares and is truly passionate about his work. He practices out of his humble abode which has a bunch of trees out front and then inside has sound healing gongs and Buddhas. Good vibes abound, but if you're into bougie spa vibes, this ain't it. This is for those who want the deep WORK that feeds the soul. He's also a great source of info on where to go for hikes or kayaking etc because he's super into that stuff. He's a true local gem!!!"
