Tom is certified in Therapeutic Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Structural Integration, and Active Isolated Stretching, and is a Master Myoskeletal Therapist under Erik Dalton.

He is also nationally certified in Synergetic Structural Integration under Magnus Ecklund. This is a deep tissue form of myofascial work which is very effective in loosening fascial restrictions. It is performed with little or no lotion and on top of the sheets. It is based on the work of Ida Rolf and is deep structural postural work.

The client wears shorts, sports bra, tube top, etc. It is not a relaxation massage but is very effective as it involves different positions (sidelying), active involvement by the client, and stretching. It is much more structurally and posturally based and is more effective in returning the body to its natural balanced state than regular massage.                                                                                            Tom also is proficient in sports massage and stretching. He is nationally certified in Active Isolated Stretching under Aaron Mattes. This form of stretching was developed under Aaron Mattes who is known as the guru of stretching. It was developed by Aaron Mattes  and is the most effective type of stretching.  Clients wear gym clothing to receive this. Athletes and people who love to work out benefit greatly from both Structural Integration and Active Isolated Stretching.

Tom’s technique is very good and helpful for my pain
by Kristie on Jun 25
The massage I booked was for pain management because I was having issues moving my neck. Tom was very knowledgeable with each neck muscle stretch and explained every procedure. He also made sure I was comfortable during each stretch. He didn't just work on my neck muscles because he could tell I was tight all the way down my entire back. I can honestly say this procedure was a "no pain no gain" experience. I went home, applied ice and took ibuprofen as directed. He worked out the, stretched out and extended each tight muscle until it released. The next morning, I was able to move my neck. After one year of having neck pain and headaches. I want to thank Tom so much for making my neck, back and head feel so much better.

They were very attentive to the way the body needs to be attended to. They were very communicative during the massage and they made it relaxing at the same time.

Tom gets it!!!!! He listen's to your descriptions, inputs his knowledge & then goes to work on helping you. This is not your typical massage...it is far more constructive.
