Fred Moura, LMT
Fred is originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, where he worked for 15 years as a professional rock climber. He moved in 2009 to New York City, where he got his NASM certification as Personal Trainer and his Massage Therapy License at Pacific College Oriental Medicine in 2012. He has also been trained in Yinova’s Reproductive Health Bodywork Program.
After being in the lab dissecting bodies with Tom Meyers and Todd Garcia in 2015, he opened his own practice, Shifting NYC. Inspired by his “new” understanding of the body and its connections, he changed his approach to movement (Passive or Active) in general.
In 2018, he created a method of self-healing movement sequencing called Movement Empowerment Class, which he always prescribes to his patients/clients as homework, so they can create the necessary awareness about maintaining their tissues as playable and supple as possible.
In 2020, Fred worked with his wife through her whole pregnancy, including assisting her on the natural vaginal delivery of their baby girl at a birthing center. He is now a proud father of a 9-year-old and a 1-year-old, both of which are one of his fountains of love and pure energy.
He brings to the table all the energy and focus he has gathered throughout his years of rock climbing, his deep connection with nature, and the rhythms of life.
