A graduate of the Cortiva Institute of Seattle with prior training at The Brian Utting School of Massage, I have been practicing therapeutic massage since 2010. Having worked primarily in clinical settings, the focus of my technique has largely been injury treatment and pain management, though I am a strong believer in the systemic benefits of mindfulness and relaxation. With an emphasis on neuromuscular therapy for the treatment of trigger points, commonly referred to as “knots”, and deep tissue techniques, my style is slow, specific, and tailored to each patient’s goals. Once the plan for each massage is established, the rest of the treatment is typically quiet and deeply calming, with many patients falling asleep. In addition to the hands on treatment, I believe that educating people about daily self care techniques for pain prevention is crucial to a well rounded approach.

Michael could tell exactly where my trouble spots are and did his best to help those tight muscles release. I also appreciate the soothing music playing softly in the background.

Michael was very professional and I felt very comfortable. The massage was fantastic and I'm very excited to see how it will help with my fibromyalgia pain.

Great work. Communicated and asked questions regarding what I wanted to be the focus of the session and he stuck to the plan.

Michael is a wonderful massage therapist. Every time I leave his office I feel a million times better. I would choose Michael if you are someone who likes a firm, steady, slow and intense pressure (though he will adjust to your preference). I used to feel strain/fatigue running from the base of my skull through my neck/ upper back but since seeing Michael, I feel great! Also, while Michael is also very friendly and will talk to you during the massage he stays very focused on what he is doing and tends to stay on the quiet side. I personally like this because then I can focus on my breath and getting air to my tired muscles and he can focus on his technique and working out the kinks with intense focus. It makes for a very relaxing environment. No pressure to hold a conversation and I always leave rejuvenated.
