" Nothing happens until something moves"...Albert Einstein

  • A deep connection to my grandmother who instilled in me a desire to help others and the support and motivation of my wife Amy Gervais lead me to a career in massage therapy. I enjoyed playing music for most of my childhood, through college and beyond, and now enjoy long walks with my dog Emma and adventuring the world with my wife.

We use pain free, gentle manual therapy techniques to achieve motion, break up / realign scar tissue, reset muscle firing imbalances, reset muscle resting lengths, and treat tissue dysfunction. This approach promotes homeostasis (balance) in the soft tissues and the nervous system allowing for treatment of the cause of the pain or strain pattern rather than just the symptoms.
