"Be the change you want to see in the world" - Buddha

I began my path in alternative health and natural therapeutics in elementary school. I had a fascination with herbs and how they can help make us feel better. I began gardening and grew herbs that I used in a rudimentary but useful way. From there my passion for natural medicine grew. I learn early on that I had a gift in my hands.

I began my path in alternative health and natural therapeutics in elementary school. I had a fascination with herbs and how they can help make us feel better. I began gardening and grew herbs that I used in a rudimentary but useful way. From there my passion for natural medicine grew. I learn early on that I had a gift in my hands. It had it's start with working on my older siblings, walking on their backs or rubbing their necks and shoulders when they were stressed, and by the time I was in middle school I found that I could sense and manipulate energy. I would later learn to harness this as a way to help friends feel better. I kept this as a side hobby while entering the "real world" and eventually found myself going to school in 2010 at the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics where I became a Massage Therapist, and a Natural Therapeutics Specialist as well as a Core Synchronism Practitioner. Since that time I have studied Herbology and Natural Therapeutics as well as continue to grow my practice. I have had many of the same clients since starting my practice. I specialize in Myofascial Release, Swedish, Shiatsu, Energy Work, Core Synch, and many more modalities. I integrate all modalities at my disposal for a fully integrative treatment. I will regularly use essential oils in my work to help the body and mind to relieve tension or facilitate healing. 


When I am not practicing body work, I develop my skills in art, photography, woodworking, gardening, graphic design, writing and music production. 

My perusal philosophy in life is to pursue all that I hold a fascination for. This definitely makes for a variety that might label my life as spicy, after all variety is the spice of life.

Great massage, listen well for needs and had warm strong hands. Felt great after the massage.

Michael was very knowledgeable. He massaged my sore muscles and was able to lessen the pain. He even gave me stretches to do at home.

Michael is an exceptionally talented massage therapist. He uses his intuitive knowledge to find problem areas that others have missed or ignored. Well education, Michael is an interesting person who has a very diverse background and varied interests. His expertise shine through the session, and the results are nothing short of amazing. Michael's suggestions for aftercare and use of products appear to be on target. I will schedule appointments with him whenever I can.

You are very professional. I felt like you were mad at me for using the Groupon or for some other reason.
