I began my career in massage therapy because helping people to feel better gives me purpose.  I hold a strong faith in the body’s ability to heal itself.  As a massage therapist, I am able to help a body to release tension areas, and return to its normal working condition.

Among the many benefits to receiving regular massage therapy, these are two that I find most noteworthy.  An advantage for everyone is its ability to enhance your body’s immune functions.   For many, the key benefit comes with massage’s ability to reduce pain from several chronic conditions.  You can find some of the other benefits from a list of resources below.

There are many different techniques and types of massage therapy.  Each of these have specific indicators for their use, and many work best in tandem.  I have taken advanced training in:

Deep Tissue

Reflexology

Swedish

Oncology

Sports

Resistance Release

Neuromuscular

and more

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Ken on Mar 15
Tom has the perfect balance of deep-tissue and 'regular' massage. Of all the people I've tried, he does the best job of addressing my pain points. His neck/back work in particular is excellent.

Tom did an amazing job. He explained to me what he was doing and why he was doing it before hand. I was 100 percent happy with his services and will use him again.
