He specializes in myofascial, neuromuscular therapies (NMT), deep tissue with a focus on injury treatment. His work is slow and methodical with the intent to create positive change to muscles and soft tissue for the purpose of relieving tension in specific areas for specific pain. A level of depth is achieved at the behest of client tolerance in order to achieve goals and can be intense; the work is not fast or obtrusive.

As a medical massage therapist I am here to provide support in the client's healing process and educate them to the current prevalent theories on what is happening with their muscles. If a condition is alterable and that is their goal, then we will work to their comfort levels, and sometimes beyond, to reach those goals. I try to use the tools that are most appropriate to the conditions, which means sometimes I may be incredibly light and sometimes it will feel like I am bone deep. We are going to work at the source first, then reconnect the area, the body and the mind as harmoniously as possible.
