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.

I have gone for two massages now and both times have been excellent experiences. I have felt comfortable and there is a great level of attention to detail. I'm looking forward to my next visit!

Gerry asked great questions and tailored the massage to my needs. As a massage therapist myself, I am extremely picky and I believe his work to be the best I have experienced.

Gerry has been my masseuse for years. He takes the time to get to know you and your bodies needs. He is very intuitive and has passion for what he does.

Gerry is very professional! He gets to know you and makes sure you are comfortable before he starts the massage. Communication is great as long as you communicate with him about pressure during the massage. He will lighten up or apply more pressure as you communicate. No need to be shy! Gerry is so professional and makes you feel at ease! Scheduling is a breeze too! Great massage and looking forward to going back!

My problem area is in my middle back, however, I'm not a small person. Gerry skillfully and effortlessly maneuvers my body to stretch and massage the muscles and maximize therapeutic benefit. I feel great after every session. God less him, lol.
