Welcome!

For the past 20 years, I've been a full time Licensed Massage Therapist in South Florida; providing Neuromuscular & Sports Massage Therapy for sports related injuries, injury prevention and performance, orthopedic conditions, pain relief and management, functional movement and postural corrective specialist, stress management and relaxation education. I've been blessed with the opportunity of working in both the entertainment and health industry; blending two of my personal passions, the performing arts and the healing arts. 

I've devoted over a decade working exclusively with elite athletes in the performing arts, giving me a unique perspective, understanding, knowledge and clinical experience working with mild to moderate non-medical dance and performance related injuries. Professional athletes require a unique and sport specific approach to treatment and maintenance, physically, emotionally and mentally, to maintain an optimum level of performance, health, longevity, and most importantly remain injury free. Which is why I consider Massage Therapy and its many different modalities, like Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy to be the perfect complimentary form of conservative treatment for improved performance and injury prevention for any conditioning and wellness program.

Mastering, yet always continuing to learn new innovative research based clinical modalities and traditional methods in the healing arts, has been and will always be my passion and dedication. 

So weather you're a professional performing artist, competitive athlete, weekend warrior, or just a health conscious individual, with a goal of maintaining an optimum level of health and performance, improve recovery and recuperation time from training or injury, correct posture and functional movement, and live pain free, let's schedule your appointment. I look forward to working with you.

Wishing you good health and happiness.

Christian is a caring professional whose technique includes educating me on the functioning of my body, addresses the discomfort with massage and provides exercises on prevention. It's a total package that is much appreciated!

Love the warm mat you use and as always you make me feel like a million dollars afterwards. Thank you for treating my back!

Informative and effective

The whole allotted amount of time was not devoted to the massage, some of the time was spent preparing the room, undressing, possibly going over medical history. I didn’t realize or I would have booked for a longer massage time.

Incredibly professional, knowledgeable and listens to you as he determines what areas need more work. This was the best experience I have had in Miami!

I enjoyed my massage so much! Christian has a wonderful knowledge of the physical stress that performers undergo, he was able to address all of my concerns with great care. He even showed me how to use my trigger point massager, which was super helpful. Would definitely recommend!

I felt very comfortable with Christian and I was really happy with how informal my session was. He pays close attention to all areas of the body and made sure I was aware of what was going on the entire time together. Looking forward to being treated again, thank you for a good start to my day.
