About Us

Touch Matters, your experience matters.
I offer Swedish massage and cranio-sacral work. 

I am glad for the opportunity to work alongside you in massage therapy,
 to work with you for well-being.  
I invite you to self-connection, to mystery, to listening with your body.
Sometimes in the course of a session, poetry or prose comes to my mind.
There's an option to hear remembered writings aloud as you receive massage.

I trained at the Cortiva School of Massage, completing certification in 2009. Since that time I have grown my practice in several locations, while also keeping up with my family.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I had a great massage at the start of my vacation! It was relaxing and restorative.

    Already have referred two friends!

  • John is very giving of his talents and responsive to you indicating too hard or too soft and let's you be in control so you're not just laying there suffering through the massage to feel guilty about communicating your preferences.

    The chair massage is excellent, especially for the neck and spine.

  • John is a strong and sensitive massage therapist who knows his work very well. He asks frequently your level of pain comfort or discomfort so you can work together for your maximum benefit. He makes the best of the work space he has.

  • Second time. John is professional and has great skills.

    Amazing touch. Very pleased with his approach. Looking forward to booking again soon.

  • Always does a great job!

    I am always reluctant to try a different massage place, but I am glad I did. John was great! The pressure was exactly what I needed and communicated throughout the massage. He focused on my trouble areas and I am looking forward to my next massage! Thanks for a great experience!!!

John was so kind, professional and caring to both my husband and me. If we lived in the area, we would be regular clients. Thank you for accommodating the schedule change and for your healing touch!

John is the perfect therapist. Having only tried massage therapy once in the past, I was hesitant about giving it another shot with someone new. My appointment with John was very comfortable from the beginning, and it is clear he has a high level of integrity and great skill with therapeutic knowledge and practice.
