Jono/Matahi was born in Tahiti and grew up with hippie parents between Polynesia, Bali, and India.

After a long, formative period of traveling across Asia and studying meditative practices and Earth medicine with shamans, he eventually went into more academic training. He graduated from the Kimura Shiatsu Institute in Japan and studied marine biology at the University of San Diego and graduated from the British School of Osteopathy.
His work combines various elements and mind-body techniques from all these different traditions, yet he specializes in myofascial osteopathic work and shamanic emotional release.

When not working in his private practice or surfing, he also teaches various bodywork seminars along with anatomy and philosophical aspects of yoga.
