Jon comes from a background in elite Rugby in Australia. Following years of putting his body through the rigors of such a physically demanding sport, his international relocation to the U.S. provided him with the opportunity for a new career direction and to learn about managing chronic pain and injuries through Massage.

A graduate from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage, Jon's interests, training and focus is on fascial systems, clinical, athletic and deep tissue bodywork, as well as IASTM and kinesiology taping. 


 In addition to the aforementioned modalities and skill sets, Jon has recently completed his Level 2 Fascial Stretch Therapist certification at the prestigious and world renowned Stretch To Win Institute in Arizona. He is pleased to be adding such a corrective, powerful, effective and elite string to his bow, such as FST. 

Whether you are training at the elite level or toiling away as a weekend warrior, let "the Anvil" hammer out the kinks, keep you moving functionally, help you to recover and optimize your performance.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Jon is hands down the best therapist I have seen. He continues to help me with mobility issues that flare up regularly. The combo treatment of massage and fst stretching has helped me with plantar facitis, hip and knee pain. Highly recommend.

New experience for me and I feel my shoulder has loosened a bit. I look forward to working more together.

Jon is exceptionally knowledgeable and skillful. I have repetitive stress injuries so often feel pain but after a session with Jon, I walk out pain-free!!

Thank you Jon - the discomfort which I am experiencing in my left shoulder has dramatically decreased. Going without Alleve or Tylenol. Thank you!

Jon is the best. He is very responsive to information about what the current issue is, and draws upon a range of approaches to tackle it. I'm always happy with my experience with him.

There is no one better trained to care for your body than Jon. He is more skilled and knowledgeable than most physical therapists and doctors. He has been managing my chronic back injury for years, and I credit him as a large part of why I am still walking. His work on my spine, for instance, was critical in helping me avoid the spinal fusion surgery that my doctors insisted--almost four years ago--was urgently necessary and entirely unavoidable. He is also an amazing person: honest, dedicated, funny, and compassionate without being intrusive.

Amazing! I walked in with a frozen shoulder and a lower back that felt like it was about to go out. Jon listened to my issues and found the areas of dysfunction right away and got to work on them. I walked out feeling euphoric and with more mobility then before I injured my self. Can’t wait to go back and get my whole body worked on.
