Take care of yourself!

I've been practicing massage therapy since 2012. I attended the Arizona School of Massage Therapy where I studied multiple modalities. My primary focus after graduating ASMT has been deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, structural integration, and combining them with my unique flow, developed through my decades long practice of Qigong and Baguazhang.

I've been practicing massage therapy since 2012. I attended the Arizona School of Massage Therapy where I studied multiple modalities. My primary focus after graduating ASMT has been deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, structural integration, and combining them with my unique flow, developed through my decades long practice of Qigong and Baguazhang. 


 Something that sets me apart from other therapists is that the power of my massage is derived from my stance, rather than my shoulder strength. This results in a more consistent massage, in flow and pressure.

My philosophy about massage is rooted in the importance of self-care and the impact on an individual's life. When you get a massage you are doing something to take care of yourself, both your mind, body, and soul. Massage isn’t about pampering yourself, in fact, the idea that taking care of yourself is somehow a luxury, is insane. Massage is about being a better you. It’s about being better to yourself, to your family, to your work, and even better to your neighbor in traffic. It’s about walking through life with less weight on your shoulders and more smile on your soul.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Amber on Jul 24
I can count on one hand the number of truly skilled massage therapists I've seen over the past 20 years; without hesitation Dirk surpasses them all. He brings with him commitment to a wonderfully relaxing and therapeutically uplifting experience. Beyond that, Dirk has the undeniable gift of a calming presence. For those who may have body issues like me or anxiety about massage, this is a rare and invaluable tool that goes a long way in creating a neutral space, allowing us as clients the opportunity to further improve our mental well being with practice and patience. The only negative I could possibly muster is that… there is only 1 Dirk!

Dirk did an amazingly awesome job! It was my first experience with a masseur and I’m afraid I have been ruined for all other masseurs

Always feel so much better after my time with Dirk. Had some mobility issues with my left shoulder and after my session no more issues.

The hot stone massage was one of the most relaxing and therapeutic things I have experienced in a long time. I tried to go about the rest of my day after my massage, but ended up crashing on my couch before 8 p.m. It was glorious. Dirk is extremely knowledgeable about the muscle systems and the physiology of them. Explain to him how bad it hurts and show him where, I promise he'll be able to help relieve the pain. Dirk has exquisite professionalism and a calming presence, in combination with his extensive knowledge, he is the perfect person to go to for a relaxing and healing massage.

Dirk was wonderfully attentive to all of my concerns, very knowledgeable, and always aware of any discomfort I may have been in throughout the massage. He also was quick to inform me of massage aftercare, and how I would be feeling, so I was left with no surprises. With how I feel after the massage I will definitely be returning to him for future massages.
