Landon has received over 1,000 hours of formal training in San Diego at Body Mind College, the School of Healing Arts, and the International Professional School of Bodywork. Landon’s skills as a therapist were largely influenced through his training with Dr. Barry Green; a pioneer in holistic healthcare. After finishing school, Landon continued to teach for Dr. Green until relocating to Jackson, Wyoming. He was chosen to be Lead Therapist for the spa at The Four Seasons Jackson Hole–where under his leadership they earned the title #1 Spa in North America by Conde Nast–and also founded Sustainable Skin Care, LLC, before opening Profile Massage three years later.
Landon’s bodywork is focused on targeting postural imbalances that create pain, dysfunction and psychological stress. Over time he gently corrects these postural problems and then works with his clients to inhibit the pattern from re-developing. Landon’s technique combines neuromuscular therapy, progressive deep tissue, and parasympathetic massage, and is influenced by his experience with somatic psychology and the practices of yoga and Tai Chi. His goal is to focus all his attention and awareness on each individual, sustaining this concentrated focus through the entire session without interruption. When this is accomplished he can be most responsive and thus most effective, with no time wasted. The attention and commitment that he gives his clients have earned him an extremely loyal following in Jackson Hole. Most of Landon’s clients have been working with him for several years.
In between his clients he stays fit by climbing in the alpine environment. Landon has climbed fanatically in the Tetons, establishing a new line of ascent in August 2010 on the north face of The Enclosure, Grand Teton–a region that had previously been thought to have been climbed out. He is also one of the few remaining bastions of the dying art of inlay, and produces some of the world’s finest work in his medium. He brings a singular drive and passion to all that he does, whether it be art, climbing or massage therapy.
