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.

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 !!!!

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!
