Experience and Professionalism.

I have been practicing massage and bodywork since 2001. Much of that experience has been in Chiropractic and Clinical settings.

I specialize in:

  • Chronic Pain Relieve
  • Injury Rehabilitation
  • Sports Massage
  • Stress Relieve 
  • Proactive Health Management
In my experience providing and receiving massage therapy, I have found it to be one of the most effective therapies for providing balance, health and well being to the client. I do not believe in the phrase "no pain, no gain'. My focus is to coax your muscles into relaxation. Relaxed muscles are happy muscles that are ready to heal and restore balance. 

I believe communication is the key to a successful massage session. I take time to thoroughly assess what your needs and desires are for the massage outcome. I encourage feed back during the session to assure that the pressure and techniques of the massage are appropriate and that you remain comfortable through the entire process. 

My passion is my profession helping people relax and restore health. I have been practicing and teaching holistic therapies since 1997 starting with the natural healing technique of Reiki. My experiences with Reiki were so profound and fulfilling, I chose to make a full time profession of helping others by becoming certified to practice massage therapy in 2001.

Healing is about restoring balance to the mind, body, and spirit. That is the foundation of holistic, complimentary therapies and the approach I take in my craft. I feel the most important quality a therapist can have is the ability to really listen and empathize with clients to understand what they are experiencing and what they need from their therapeutic session. I strive to understand what my client's needs and desires are at the beginning of each session and tailor the techniques I use to achieve my client's goals that can include: relaxation, pain relief, maximizing wellness and/or enhancing physical performance.

My next professional goal is to become certified as a personal trainer to gain more insight into the functions of nutrition and exercise and their affects on the muscles and health. My favorite forms of exercise are routines with a Swiss Exercise Ball, walking and hiking.

Outside of my profession, I am married and father to 7 children. I love the outdoors and am most at peace when camping in the woods. I like to brew beer and mead as a hobby and can be found cooking on the grill no matter what the weather is.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

Awesome package!

Gerry was ready for me when I arrived. As this was my first visit we discussed my history and made a plan to work on my primary issues first. I usually prefer pay as you go but I was so pleased with my massage that I signed up for a series of three massages to continue working on my issues. Thanks Gerry for a great massage.

I never once felt pain, even when he was working out my tightest muscles. It was the best massage I've ever experienced. He is extremely thorough and uses different modalities.

As usual, the massage was amazing! I'm already looking forward to the next one I have scheduled.

Gerry is a top notch professional massage therapist. I've been going to Gerry for massage for years, but each time he asks what to focus on, listens carefully and always delivers the relaxing and healing experience I need at that time. He loves helping people and it shows.

Gerry made me very comfortable and listened attentively to my needs. He applied different techniques and listened to my body. I look forward to my next session.

Gerry is the best therapist I have been to. He is not just a massage technician. He is a highly qualified healing massage therapist. My husband bought me a x-mas certificate to a local corporate massage company. I will never go back, it is a waste of money compared to what Gerry offers. I am back in the hands of Gerry and will not spend my money anywhere else.
