In his college years, Jonathan underwent two levels of training in Reiki and studied other forms of martial arts and fencing before diving headlong into his Tai Chi practice in 1989. Then, after six years as a naval officer, Jonathan attended the prestigious Cayce-Reilly School of Massage Therapy in Virginia Beach at the Association for Research & Enlightenment (A.R.E.) and became a licensed practitioner in Virginia. Parallel with this program, he trained in Holotropic Breathwork and became certified as a facilitator in Integrated Breath while also teaching Tai Chi. After a career in teaching physics and raising two children in Lancaster, PA, Jonathan more recently graduated from the Lancaster School of Massage and is presently a PA Licensed Massage Therapist.
