Welcome!


For the past 20 years, I've been a full time Florida Licensed Massage Therapist, practicing in Miami; specializing in Advanced Clinical and Sports Injury Massage Therapy for treatment of non-medical acute to chronic musculoskeletal orthopedic conditions, pain management and relief, functional movement and postural corrective specialist, stress management and relaxation education. 


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, as well as two decades working with sports athletes of all types and levels.


My advanced clinical skills, training and experience attained over the past two decades, sets me apart from other massage therapist. Developing a systematic approach and individually customized therapy program, starting with a medical history, assessments for; orthopedic conditions and injury, functional movement and balance, muscle testing, joint range of motion, postural imbalance, emotional, mental and physical stress.


Through this approach, I've provided therapy for the following conditions:

  • Acute and chronic stress
  • Depression, Anxiety, Panic
  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain due to repetitive strain, injury or non specific conditions
  • Muscular spasm, trigger point pain
  • Neuromuscular Impingement (pinched nerve)

  • Knee- Patellofemoral Syndrome, Iliotibial Band Syndrome, Posterior Knee Pain, Knee Sprain
  • Ankle- Lateral and Medial Sprain, Posterior Ankle Pain, Achilles Tendinosis
  • Foot- Morton's Neuroma, Plantar Fasciitis, Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendinosis, Hallux Valgus (bunion pain)
  • Shoulder- Rotator Cuff Strain, Subacromial Impingement, Scapular Dyskenisis
  • Elbow-Tennis (lateral) and Golfer (medial) Pain
  • Wrist- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Extensor Tendinitis
  • Dance and the Performing Arts related non-medical injuries
  • Sports related non-medical injuries
  • Headaches- Migraines, Tension, Cluster
  • Balance- Vertigo, Ear pain
  • Jaw Pain- TMJD

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 while aging gracefully, let's schedule your appointment. I look forward to working with you.

Wow! This is more than a massage. Chris is not only very professional but very knowledgeable. His intuition is outstanding. It is very had for me to relax but today I was able to melt into the table. I left feeling physically, mentally and even emotionally at peace. I can’t think him enough!

Christian is a true professional and so talented at his work. When you see him for a massage, you get a lot more for your time with him. He is a great source of physical, mental and nutritional information. He is caring, gentle and shows interest in understanding your personal needs and how to address them. Just one visit with Christian and you will be back for sure.

Excelente Terapeuta. Muy preparado y con un amplio conocimiento médico del sistema nervioso y músculo-esqueleto. Pero lo mas importante es la sensibilidad que tiene para encontrar los puntos de tensión y las diferentes técnicas que usa dependiendo del lugar y el dolor en cuestión. Un gran descubrimiento!!!

Was excellent and really helped so Thankyou.

Christian always takes the time to fully understand what it is that you need from him. If you just wanted a general overall massage he is definitely great at that. But he’s particularly good at zeroing in on specific areas that are causing you problems.
