Gaetano Paduano is OHM
has been nationally certified as a "personal trainer"
through the American Council on Exercise, since 1992. He specializes
in nutritional guidance, muscle balance, skeletal alignment, body

coached the men's and women's swim teams at UCSD dealing with
strength, nutrition, flexibility, focus and relaxation. Also, he has
done the same training with the water polo teams at Coronado High
School. Audiences ranging from 13-80 years of age have attended his
health, wellness & nutrition seminars.
2002, Gaetano has been certified in the United States through the
National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
(NCBTMB) as a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP). Many of his
clients started out as post-trauma or post-surgical patients who
could not reach their desired level of physical function through
other modalities and/or massage treatments from other providers.
bodywork is primarily deep tissue therapeutic and energetic. Gaetano
designed his own technique moving on the body in a manner, which
allows most clients to go into an altered state; feeling little or
none of the common pain associated with intense massage. Utilizing
his own specific therapeutic movement, Gaetano can achieve greater
levels of muscular release, thus bringing his clients to higher
levels of function and overall physical & psychological comfort.
sessions are usually 1.5 hours. Gaetano rarely does massage for less
than 1.5 hours unless a client has a single point of injury on which
to focus. Please note that even in 1.5 hours, it is impossible to
work effectively on the entire body.
the end of initial sessions, a common response from clients is, "I
am not in pain for the first time since…! I never have felt
anything like that!"
encourages people to schedule a “free” initial meeting to answer
all questions. This also will allow both you and he to evaluate
whether working together will be a mutually beneficial experience.
