He also practices Pregnancy Massage, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, Swedish Massage, and Sports Massage.  He combines different techniques that open and renew tissues along with slow movement to ensure everything has been worked thoroughly.

The Lauterstein-Conway School for Massage Therapy.

How do you describe your massage/work to others?
Deep relaxing thorough massage. I like to start by opening up the muscles with some Myofascial work before digging in with palms and thumbs, rarely do I use elbows. I specialize in removing problems from the body and work very well at removing built up tension with a sensitive sense of touch, as well as being knowledgeable about how the muscles interact with one other and not just massage where you hurt but figuring out what is causing it, fixing the problem, and helping you on the road to recovering and maintaining your body.

How has receiving massage affected you personally?
It has made me come to realize the amount of respect and care we need to give our bodies.

What do you do to stay healthy?
I enjoy swimming, walking/hiking/running, paintball and laser tag, kayaking/paddleboarding, every day free weight workout and self body workout.

What do you like about working at Myo Massage?
The freedom of not having to give a basic massage like you see at so many franchise or spa type massage businesses.
