My name is Christopher John Aquino. I was born on November 26, which makes me a Sagittarius. I grew up in Montreal, Canada until I moved to Southern California in early 2000. I am devoted to my family and forever grateful for my wife of 12 plus years and loving mother of our two beautiful, smart, and witty girls who still love to cuddle. I studied Kinesiology with a focus in Fitness at McGill University. Upon moving to Orange County, California, I attended the American Institute of Massage Therapy and the Sports Massage Training Institute. At the time, I also worked as the assistant fitness manager for 24 Hour Fitness where I wooed my wife who also worked for the company.

I eventually left 24 and pursued my dreams of operating my own mobile massage therapy business. I have had a lot of success working with all types of professions. My calling has allowed me to travel the world and meet inspiring people. I continue to work and support athletes of Team USA, CrossFit Games, and numerous athletic and charitable events.

I love to learn! I want to know everything, probably to a fault. I’ve taken many seminars, some were useless, and others were game changers. To feed my hunger to know more and to become a better health care provider, I received my Associates of Science degree from Concorde Career College as a Physical Therapist Assistant. I graduated as the top student (4.0 GPA) and was recognized with the awards co- Valedictorian and most accomplished PTA by seasoned Physical Therapists. I love sports, I like to play video games when my wife permits, I love to shop (especially online), but most of all I enjoy laughing and playing with my family.

 

Family and friends are very important to me, and without them I would not be where I am today!  I’ve been a massage therapist now for almost 15 years. I still love what I do and the way it helps people to relieve stress and reduce pain. It still makes me smile every time a client/patient says, “that was the best massage/treatment I’ve ever had!” But now I incorporate everything I’ve learned and use what I know works for me and my clients.

My favorite foods are sushi, BBQ, and ice cream. My hair keeps getting increasingly grey with age (my wife continues to remind me). Yet, I still get carded when purchasing a lotto ticket at Stater Bro’s, it must be the Asian genes!

One of my favorite movies is Pitch Perfect (don’t judge me). Despite living in Southern California, we rarely go to the beach unless it is for work. My new favorite activity is Spikeball, check it out, it is super fun and guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

If I had more time, I’d design t-shirts. My Facebook profile pic is not a selfie. My friends like to call me “Aquino”, but my favorite is “God Hands”.
