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.

Excellent massage Therapist in Richmond.......
by Theresa on Aug 27
I've been getting massages from Gerry for about a year now. During that time, I've alternated between deep relaxation massages and massages that focus on specific parts of my body. Gerry is a skilled and professional massage therapist, and I'm so happy to have found him.
by Catrina on Aug 14
The massage was heavenly and unlike many other places your massage isn't shortened for the time it takes you to get dressed and undressed. Best place I've been!
by Kathy on Aug 11
It was very relaxing.

Ion Foot Bath is a must for everyone who takes their body and health seriously. Gotta give it, at least ONE try!

Great value!

I always feel perfectly loose and relaxed after.
by Catherine on Jul 04
I love the 60 minute massage I get weekly. Not only are they relaxing, they are very therapeutic for me in that they release the tension I hold in my neck and back and make my weeks much more comfortable. I feel the pain when I miss a week. Technically, Gerry is excellent. He uses many different techniques in massaging an area which feels wonderful. He seems to know how to use just the right amount of pressure for me too. I love his massages 100 percent and highly recommend him to everyone,
