Since 1992, 30 years of forging
Science, Intuition & Sensation


"Tailored for the connoisseur of massage, the Wakefield Method is a series of MindBody Sessions that transcend Human Experience."
Alena Taylor, Whole Life Expo

Welcome to the next frontier in MindBody work,

Imagine for a few moments a truly remarkable sensory experience beyond anything you have received professionally on a table before.

An overwhelming envelope of luxury & power that takes you to a deeper, more pleasurable, transcendent state of being than you ever thought possible.

Powerful, long strokes of penetrating pressure are woven seamlessly into fluid, elongating stretches that lengthen muscle & connective tissue from every angle.

This unique focus of irregular stress, release & passive stretching dramatically increase your flexibility & range of motion, creating a durable "feeling of space & freedom" as you finally overcome the deadening forces of gravity.

Sensitive yet profoundly deeper touch that engages you at the cellular level, stimulating positive, long lasting changes physically, mentally & spiritually.

The Wakefield Method is performed in Silence* with each session a completely tailored experience that is different for each individual, each appointment.

PS. Visitors to this site are perplexed by the dichotomy of my being both a Healer & an Open-Hand Bodyguard. I offer this from St Francis De Sales (1567-1622). "Nothing is so strong as Gentleness, nothing is so Gentle as real strength ...



I love what I do & improving the Quality of your Life, is why I am here.

Sharing with you the deep, flowing Luxury of The Wakefield Method is Effortless. 

Prepping you for high stress Meetings & Ultra Physical Performances is Simple.

After all I have been refining The Wakefield Method since 1991, primarily around the needs of Dancers, Athletes, Yogis & the Massage Connoisseur. 

ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO READ ANY FURTHER, everything you needed to know was in the ABOUT Page.

But if you are here because you are in Intractable Pain, I know what Pain is & how to help you transcend it.

My first 23 years were spent growing up unfettered & outside In wonderful New Zealand as a Wild Spirit. 

It seems that four weeks each year were spent in Hospitals & ER's recovering from motorcycle accidents, rugby & other calamities.

Especially when I was old enough to leave school & started working on the Farm & in our very remote & beautiful National Parks.

Falling out of Helicopters, horse & cattle injuries, impaling myself on barbed wire fences & chainsaws, etc were far more typical than not.

Until I almost lost it all, in February 1986 I intervened in a fight with a large Gang of Men & was knocked into a Coma & not expected to live.

6 weeks later I awoke with a scant memory of who I was & had to relearn who I was & to walk & talk again.

But at 22, I had little choice but to press the Restart Button again & get on with Living.

18 months later in October 1987 after much humiliation & struggle, I left NZ for good & came to the USA to run Track & play Rugby in Colorado for 6 months before going to play rugby in Australia.

Fell in love with America & decided to stay. In 1992 a series of tendon injuries while preparing to run Track semi-pro in Europe bought me to my knees & Massage first as a patient. 

It seemed so effortless & fundamental I went to school & then opened my first Practice in Newport Beach.

At the same time, I have balanced being a Healer with my unique skills as a Fixer mostly in the 3rd World & this work in itself has added Shrapnel, Concussion & other serious injuries to my Medical History.

At 58, I have fractured over 50 plus bones, many of those same bones like my feet, legs & arms repeatedly.

Sometimes I walk with a slight Limp, my Speech is sometimes Indistinct, I am Battered & Scarred in too many places but I am not in the ground yet & feel like 21 after my morning coffee, in fact I am healthier, stronger & more vital than Men in their 20's.

But its because of my experiences, I know your Pain & how to move you beyond it. 

I know what High Performance Athletics are & how to return to even higher levels of excellence when all seems at once lost.

I know what being confined to a Wheelchair & being told emphatically by Physicians that Emergency Surgery is the only viable option if I wanted to walk again.

Only to stubbornly wheel myself out & start all over. And Crawl. And then Walk again. Albeit with a slight Limp. Sometimes.

All is not lost, I am your Partner in Health & there is Light & a lot more Fun & a lot more Living just ahead ...

OpenHand Bodyguard

As of October 2016, I no longer accept any overseas work & my contracts here are Limited. All enquiries must be vetted through Attorney Robert Goldberg at (949) 274-0646 

Here is my schedule for Personal Protection & specific, not negotiable working requirements. Understand that as a OpenHand-BodyGuard in the USA I do not, carry Firearm Protection of any kind. 

My clients are usually high visibility individuals, business owners & private people & their families, whom have incurred a threat that has proven unassailable by conventional means*. 

I am not a Preventer, nor do I provide constant close protection, my specialty is Interventional Security, I excel in solving people problems.

In essence, I am a Fixer ...

My clients demand a low profile & therefore utility of the "giant" bodyguard, with or without a firearm, is unacceptable in terms of discretion & open-ended risks.

I always work alone, with unfettered communication from the principal(s). My specialty is Threat Elimination, Single or Multiple Targets. 

I dissolve each threat in a style that is both personal & unambiguous in its communication. My low key, subtle personal appearance & worldwide experience allow me to blend in to almost all situations, allowing benign coverage but with overwhelming results that are intelligent & discreet.

Because I work alone, I'm generally not interested in Close Protection or any Public Detail. Should we need an outer fold of associates, armed or not, I am always the Team Leader. My role is always protection of Principal(s), with Associates responsible for maintaining Peripheral Integrity. 

As additional support to supplement your Network of Target Locators, Witness Personnel & Legal, my Command Vehicle contains the very latest in Encrypted Wireless Technology to simultaneously record & upload all Contact Transactions in real time, providing all the substrate necessary for Clarification (typical in such Complicated Human Interactions), may the need arise. 

I am cleared at both the US State and Federal SRII Level. I possess two passports, New Zealand & United States & maintain a current FM3 for Mexico. I am fluent in English & Spanish, conversant in Japanese & have an initial working knowledge of Vietnamese, Korean, Mandarin & Cantonese.

Hourly Fee of $775-900 plus Expenses, Cash Envelope Only, with a Minimum Contract of 6/Six Hours*.

* Regardless of any financial remuneration, I am not interested in conditions, that are, or could be, considered ExtraLegal within the USA, it's territories, or by any host country of operation.
