I have over 25 years experience as a massage therapist specializing in pain relief and improving function in those suffering auto and work related injuries. My interest in massage therapy began in 1987 following an auto accident and witnessing the relief from low back pain my wife received after receiving trigger point therapy treatments. Intrigued by this experience I soon studied myomassology (massage therapy) with Irene Gauthier at The Myomassethics Center (Currently Irene's Myomassology Institute) in Southfield, MI. I subsequently became an instructor at the school, teaching for 18 years, as well as building my practice. In 2000 my wife and I were involved in another auto accident in which I suffered  injuries that kept me from working for 12 months. During this rehab period I pledged to work exclusively with others injured in auto accidents. 


I am currently the owner of Michigan Auto Injury Massage Therapy, LLC and provide in-home massage therapy to those injured in auto and work related injuries. After receiving information from my patient's I direct bill their insurance companies and those without deductibles will pay no out-of-pocket expense for our services.

I look forward to working with you to help meet your rehabilitation goals.
