About Us

For nearly twenty years I have been discovering and experimenting with the human form. We are creatures of habit and sometimes those habits create a world of pain. Examining your posture and your muscle movements, I create a plan for you to get better. We can adapt into new habits that make us stronger, more flexible, more powerful than ever before.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • He's like a forensic specialist, looking for the source of your pain. Now I might finally get some relief after not being able to solve the problem myself for so long.

    Chris gave a great explanation of what was going on with me. He addressed my issues and gave me exercises I could do on my own to continue recovery.

  • Chris is easy to work with, knowledgeable, and professional. I look forward to my future sessions and improving my efficiency with the use of his bag of tricks.

    Chris is Rad. His training and experience always leads him to the solution for what is acutely ailing you.

  • I like the idea you give tools we can do at home. I definitely like showing techniques which show you how you can make the muscle stronger

    Chris is unique in what he has to offer. His passion about body structure, alignment, and function translates into a high level of experience and skills. After each treatment, I leave with new insights and improved body awareness. Thank you, Chris!

  • I liked the way you are an excellent thinker and listener. I could tell he was thinking of how he was going to proceed with me. In our very first visit my foot that has hurt for a long time quit hurting and my knee and shoulder have been given hope and a plan to relieve this pain. I also walked out with ways other therapists have never tried with me before. It's al about being safe and trusting in the person working with you !!!!

    He is very informative, thorough and conscientious. I now understand my body better than ever before. I have already recommended Chris to two friends and two family members since my appointment yesterday. Thanks Chris!

  • Chris is a gifted practitioner who listens well, shares insights, and has a vast knowledge base. If a massage therapist is needed, look no further!

Chris is an excellent practitioner. He is one of the most knowledgeable in his field. He goes beyond just massage. He works with your muscles and core to strengthen them as well as tone them. I have recommended Chris to many of my friends and patients. He is the real deal!
