Central Oregon and the city of Bend provided year round adventures to keep them both active and outdoors.


Jonathan grew up on the coast of Maine and enjoys all activities involving water. A captain, boatbuilder, fly fisherman, and surfer, he appreciates living in Camden where the ocean, lakes, and rivers are just minutes away. His positive energy and enthusiasm are just a few of the qualities that express his contagious love of life.

I so so appreciate a therapist who can intelligently “crank” on my back pain. Jonathan is my go to guy!

Liked Jonathan's receptivity to what I asked for and his gentle personality
by Robin on Sep 03
Jonathan was super knowledgeable about the issues I was having. He was able to show me on a tablet the muscles that were affected and how I could use a lacrosse ball at home to help alleviate the pain and loosen the muscles up.

This was the most effective massage that I have had in years. Very professional and knowledgeable.
by Shannon on Aug 25
Jonathan was great, very knowledgeable. I really liked that he had visual aids to help me understand exactly where my pain issues originate from in my body. The discussion before & after my massage was good. He had very helpful suggestions for what I can do on my own to alleviate my pain, and assist my body in healing itself.

Jon did great job putting me at ease

Jonathan was incredible. He took great care to listen to my descriptions of my issues and to talk me through the treatment as he worked. Afterward, he showed me (with an awesome app on his iPad) the exact muscles he worked and gave me suggestions for exercises I can do at home and at the gym to improve my strength and mobility. I'm looking forward to going back to get more work done.
