Deep Concern for the Client and Desired Outcomes

Michael's bodywork draws its roots from his study of Body-Mind Centering 2008-2010 with renowned movement educator Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen founder of the School for Body-Mind Centering and Amy Matthews, co-author of Yoga Anatomy.  These two inspired Michael to obtain a massage license through ACC and develop the skills and methods of translating movement awareness into practical hands-on protocols.  Each session is always customized with deep concern for the client and desired outcomes.  Thre...

Michael's bodywork draws its roots from his study of Body-Mind Centering 2008-2010 with renowned movement educator Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen founder of the School for Body-Mind Centering and Amy Matthews, co-author of Yoga Anatomy.  These two inspired Michael to obtain a massage license through ACC and develop the skills and methods of translating movement awareness into practical hands-on protocols.  Each session is always customized with deep concern for the client and desired outcomes.  Three years ago Michael began developing a real-time evaluation method to precisely resolve myofascial pain patterns.  


A client can expect a session that moves seamlessly through stretch, targeted or general therapeutic massage, into either recovery or movement integration.  Session lengths can vary from 30min - 2 hours depending on need.  Recommendation for new clients is to attend four sessions of any length within the first 14 days to establish a solid understanding of the work and intelligence of the body to organize around new proposals for health and function.

Proud father of three divergent creative kiddos; himself a third culture kid growing up overseas traveling the world and glad to call Austin home since attending University of Texas Plan II '91.  Secret to life:  stay inspired!  Loves to dance every week and rough play with his son Ezra.  New challenge:  go to law school for intellectual property 2021.  Thank you Austin!
