Massage Therapy

Danielle Imbagliazzo, LMT

Danielle got her start into massage therapy by working on her father, who was an injured Longshoreman, when she was a child.  Growing up she suffered a few of her own sports injuries playing school and travel sports (basketball, softball and volleyball); because of this, chiropractic care and massage therapy were incorporated into her life.  Possessing a healing touch and an interest in the human body, Danielle enrolled into the massage therapy program at N.I.T. in Long Beach where she graduated in November of 2000.  Since then she has been a Chiropractic Massage Therapist; Danielle specializes in:  Deep Tissue, Swedish Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Frozen Shoulder Treatment and Reflexology also utilizing other modalities she has knowledge of.

Danielle still enjoys playing the sports she played when she was growing up as well as rollerblading, biking, traveling and crafting in her down time.

Jiri Cizek, LMT

Early in his clinical rehabilitation career, Jiri Cizek (J.C.) worked in a hospital setting, receiving much of his professional inspiration from his mother who was an emergency room nurse.
While assisting in his mother’s rehabilitation after she underwent back surgery to relieve scoliosis pain, he became deeply involved in learning about spine and sports rehabilitation. He subsequently became certified as a fitness trainer and opened a sports training center. Owning and operating a fitness center turned out to be an extremely rewarding profession for J.C., where he relished the opportunity to help athletes, as well as non-athletes, achieve their personal goals.
When J.C. relocated to California, he began working in clinical rehabilitation settings where he assisted in providing care to patients with severe disabilities such as stroke and brain injuries. He continued to pursue work as a fitness specialist with amateur athletes who participated in endurance fundraising events such as marathons and MS bike rides. Becoming more involved in the Southern California community, J. C. also assisted in the organization of several fundraising events.
As his rehabilitation and sports training work deepened, J.C developed a strong interest in massage therapy.
“Providing hands-on therapy became my passion,” says J.C. “Watching people respond to myofascial treatments by experiencing immediate relief from conditions such as headaches, shoulder, neck and lower back pain, was extremely rewarding.”
Jiri Cizek took his massage therapy to the next level by completing his formal Neuromuscular Therapist (NMT) training at the prestigious Western Institute of Neuromuscular Therapy in Laguna Hills. He continued working with medical professionals in multidisciplinary rehabilitation settings ensuring his patients felt comfortable, while he assisted in every aspect of performance to maximize progress.
Mr. Cizek is a dedicated team player who supports and practices his motto, “to help all patients the way I would like to be helped,” on a daily basis.
