Central Oregon C.C. School of Massage Therapy
How do you describe your massage/work to others?
I do my very best to tailor each session to my clients individual needs at that moment. My focus is on myofacial release and trigger point therapy to assist in the healing of injuries and to maintain healthy stress levels in muscle systems to avoid injuries in the first place. Educating clients about how their body’s work is an important component of massage therapy. I like to draw maps for people and show them how it all works together.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
I like to attend workshops that demonstrate how massage therapy can be incorporated into an overall wellness program and facilitate dramatic changes in people’s health and how they feel in their bodies. My most recent workshop was hosted by the Integrative Medicine Department at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. I very much wanted to see how a world class medical research institution welcomed massage therapists and other alternative medicine practitioners to the table. I believe the future of the profession and of medicine is one of inclusion and I want to do my part to help make those changes happen.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
Massage is one of the best things life has to offer. It has helped me when I’ve been injured. It helps ease the weight of the world and makes me feel human.
What do you do to stay healthy?
Walk every morning with my wife, daughter & dog. I bike commute ~ 50 miles/week for the adventure and exercise. I lift weights a few times/week to keep everything in working order. For fun I like to dance, garden & swim. I enjoy using my body, trying new things and testing its limits.
What do you like about working at Myo Massage?
Myo has a knack for attracting interesting clients and engaging body work needs. I love working in an environment full of intelligent, educated and dedicated professionals who love what they do and are at the top of their game. Basically, I’m a body nerd and working at Myo makes me feel right at home.
