I am a loving husband and father of one child. I worked for 30 years in the Technology arena supporting servers and storage arrays. I recently became a massage therapist to help people support their journey to promote health and improved wellbeing through massage therapy. I chose this path because of my own experiences with its powerful benefits recovering from chronic pain from years at a desk using bad postural habits. Regular Massage along with chiropractic care, exercise, and acupuncture greatly improved and helps me maintain my body to keep it in good shape. Massage became a mainstay for me due to its ability to not only help my body heal physically, but to promote good health through lowering my stress levels, improving my sense of wellbeing, reducing pain associated with muscle tension and improving my body's health markers. I regularly receive massage about 2 times a month.
In working together we can help you achieve what you need most whether it is relaxation or dealing with a chronic issue.
