Techniques & Philosophy

Michael specializes in:

Deep Tissue

Trigger Point

Sports Massage

Shiatsu

Thai Massage

Reiki

Swedish Massage

Michael treats each person as an individual and realizes that not everyone will respond to the same treatment the same way as the next person, and therefore by having a wide range of techniques, is able to treat the client with the appropriate amount of sensitivity. He also encourages clients to aid in their own recovery or therapy through stretching, hydrotherapy (ice/heat) and any other tidbits of personal experience that he can offer.

 

Personal Interests

Michael enjoys hiking, kayaking, biking and yoga. He has been doing yoga for 15 years and has taken some preliminary courses so that he may one day become a yoga instructor. Michael also moonlights as a professional musician and is an award winning songwriter.
