We had the good fortune of connecting with Beckham Federico and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Beckham, how does your business help the community?
Massage therapy stimulates blood flow through out the entire body. With the holistic approach, Manuel muscle manipulation increases longevity within the muscle. Activating internal healing, ones immunity is reactivated and reset. Massage helps the body recover in ways you cannot receive anywhere else. A 60 minute massage is equivalent to 5-8 hours of a good nights rest.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Aside from Massage, I am a poet. I have been creating flows, that I refer to as “flowetry”. I utilize everyday life for inspiration. Poetry has a way for personal healing. If we listen to our inner Rhythm or vibration, creations sparks. In my life, words become stories, become affirming activations for self. I have incorporated custom poetry with massage! This was a technique I used quite a number of times. I feel the need, to utilize poetry and massage to inspire others, as I then, am re-inspired. This is how I continue to grow. At times, there are writers blocks. Frustration does set in. I will then, take a break to reset my mind. Sometimes it’s a day, sometimes a week. Patience, perseverance & determination, are key words that I always see in my mind. Both massage and poetry, teaches these. The body is an immaculate vessel, that is so delicate. Which should be handled as such, yet so resilient! Yet, both poetry and massage are holistic stimulants, that I know have helped many. I want people to know that massage can be customized, completely to your preference. Many people, do not like to be touched. If massage, true massage, can be givin a chance it can change your daily life. Poetry is life changing as well. A beautiful way to activate and recalibrate your mind.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well, the name says it all. Pirates Cove. An ancient place, not far at all. Worth the views, trails, beaches, people. We bring community and healing to this specific area. Within Pirates Cove Guard, we are here for land preservation, but also to help new comers along the way. Sometimes folks get lost from their groups, some folks are down and out and try to end it all, some just need a safe space to rest. We are here! We’ve already had group members save lives of folks who attempted suicide. A non profit organization that offers fun, education, tours, Polaroid photos, massage, reiki, spiritual support, addiction recovery support. The only expectation: clean up your trash and leave with a smile! After arrival of this place, you wouldn’t have time to venture off to the city but the city is great! Pismo and San Louis Obispo are about 15 minutes. Our mission for Pirates Cove & Guard: self awareness

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There is a group that I am part of We are called Pirates Cove Guard. We are located at Avila Beach, Ca. We here are dedicated to preserving and restoring the land. We innerstand that earth plays a part in healing. So we dedicate our time and efforts, along with our talents to those who come our way. When we receive visitors, we educate them on native land and the importance of land preservation and the benefits. Just as the land, we should or want to, at least, preserve our bodies. These statements lead to the question, “what do you mean?” I, then incorporate the relation with earth and the body. This conversation diverges their curiosity. Allowing inner reveals to be healed, or acknowledged. The interaction can be very short or in depth. All we ask is “clean up your trash and leave with a smile”
