Boulder College of Massage Therapy- Teaching Assistant

From 2008-2010 I was a teaching assistant at BCMT for the Kinesiology Program and for the "Normalization of Soft Tissue" class. I was mentored by Mary Ann Foster and Natalie Morgan.

Massage Envy- Longmont, CO

Worked as a MT in a high volume massage clinic between the years of 2008-2010. The benefit of this employment was to be able to have a plethora of hands on experience directly out of massage school without having to run my own business.

Aveda- Mammoth Lakes, CA

I was employed as a MT in 2010 at an Aveda spa dealing with a majority of Sports related sessions.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Bri on Nov 13
WOW! This is probably the best massage I have ever gotten. I am a mom, and Rarely... rarely take time for myself. Michael asked what I wanted to get out of my massage. I let him know I wanted to relax, and he took it from there. He led me through some very easy relaxing meditation as he started to release the tension throughout my body,and whenever I would get distracted (I am a mom after all) his breath would bring me back to my own. The pressure was spot on, as was the temperature ( he was able to adjust the massage table to the temperature of my liking ) I never felt exposed or self-conscious during my massage, he kept me well covered, and I was able to focus on relaxation rather than my hips. His massage oil/lotion was wonderful, it had a very light relaxing fragrance, but not overpowering. Wonderful experience. I highly recommend Michael. if you aren't sure what to get your loved one for the holidays, especially those hard to buy for moms, take my advise, and get them a massage!!! it is really is a gift that will leave them feeling better for a long time, and allow them to take some time for themselves (something this mom is always struggling with)

Best therapeutic massage I’ve ever had!

Michael's combination of his personal touch mixed with his incredible professionalism made for a delightfully healing and overall invigorating experience. I will be recommending him to any and all who seek relaxation, professional healing, and the ever so necessary revitalization required for a healthy lifestyle. Shawn Louth

Michael was incredibly skilled and professional creating a secure and relaxing environment leaving me in a state of relief and euphoria. He has the strength and knowledge to dig in deep and therapeutically release chronic knots and their associated discomfort. Hands down one of the best masseuses in the Eastern Sierra!

I generally have a difficult time letting anyone into my space but I felt completely comfortable and relaxed. There was nothing about this experience that wasn't good.

Best massage I've ever had-hands down. Michael has amazing expertise in neck and shoulder therapy techniques. I now have hope that someone in Bishop may be able to help me heal chronic pain that I've been dealing with for many years.

It was a wonderful and healing massage experience for a first-timer. Truly a master at his craft.

Michael has great skill and understanding of how the muscles and joints move and that skill was clearly demonstrated in his massage technique. I had an issue with my shoulder and he helped to release it. One of the best massages I've had.
