Holden Zalma

Alternative Health Practitioner, Founder of MetaTouch Body Balance, Licensed Massage Therapist, Business Coach

Holden began his career as an assistant athletic trainer at the University of Southern California.  There, he worked to keep the student-athletes as injury and pain-free as possible. He graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in pre-physical therapy from USC.  After leaving USC he realized there was a major gap in the medical field. The most common course of treatment for muscular-skeletal injuries or pain was; drugs, injections, PT then surgery. Most of which would focus on the symptoms not the root cause.

Holden knew there was another option. He knew that if the root cause of the pain was discovered (using targeted manual therapy techniques to help return balance back to the body) it would lead to enormous increases in range of motion, reduction of localized and systemic pain and more consecutive pain-free days than other, more traditional treatments.

With this focus in mind, Holden created the “MyoAlign Technique”  This technique allows the practitioner to discover key fascial restrictions in the tissue and correct them, bringing balance back to the body and reducing pain. Holden teaches this technique in seminars to other practitioners and to all of his staff at MetaTouch.

With 28 years practicing bodywork and over 300,000 clients treated, Holden has been called a true healer.  His ability to quickly discover the root of pain and dysfunction, find a solution to that pain, all while connecting with each client’s specific needs, has allowed him to become one of the premier therapists in the world.  

His clients include everyone from business moguls, A-list celebrities, professional athletes to soccer moms and weekend warriors.  He has clients fly in from all 4 corners of the world to experience his touch.  

In addition to healing bodies, Holden also has a love of business. He has created a program to help other entrepreneurs start or level up their own health service business to 6 figures and beyond.  For more information check out www.businessholistic.com

Jessica McCargar

L.M.T, C.M.T Licensed/Certified Massage Therapist

When Jessica was young her mother suffered from constant migraines, neck and shoulder pain and would ask for massages. She enjoyed helping her mom get through this pain more naturally especially when the medications weren’t helping. Now as a practicing adult, she enjoys helping her clients find immediate relief from pain and tension. Jessica has a passion for helping others to live their best and happiest lives by having good health and self-care practices. She knows that healing begins from the inside out and loves to be the catalyst for that healing. She is a great listener and wants to hear about her clients lives to get to the root cause of the issue; whether it be nutrition and eating lifestyle, career shifts and desires, home life, or relationship blocks. 

Her favorite modalities that she feels bring the best results are sports massage, deep tissue with a slow and patient approach, and acupressure. These help the clients find immediate relief and better movement. She is also finding that guiding her clients to improved nutrition is having multiple positive results of; feeling better in their bodies, feeling nourished, increased energy, and easily able to get back on track. She also really enjoys helping her prenatal clients attain a relaxed state while their bodies are going through so many shifts. Clients find relief from back, shoulder, and hip pain that are common in pregnancies. 

She loves to express herself through dance whether it be Zumba, Hula, or out with friends. Walks on the beach solo or with a friend brings her peace, joy, and grounding.

He began his education at the Downey Adult School and has continued learning as an apprentice to Holden while working at MetaTouch.

Edgar has become a favorite among our athletic clients in need of a deep tissue or sports massage. But don’t let his strength fool you, he caters his treatments to each individuals needs.  If a gentler touch and a compassionate ear is needed Edgar is also you man.
