A better way of living with massage therapy!

I was drawn to massage therapy due in part to a almost natural ability I had to ease family members pains in part through massaging the neck or shoulders. This art I have more than fine tuned. I completed an associates of applied science in massage therapy from Rasmussen college in 2011. I went straight to work from their building my practice.

I was drawn to massage therapy due in part to a almost natural ability I had to ease family members pains in part through massaging the neck or shoulders. This art I have more than fine tuned. I completed an associates of applied science in massage therapy from Rasmussen college in 2011. I went straight to work from their building my practice. My techniques are a combination of stretching, relaxation, deep tissue, myofascial work, Lomi Lomi massage and various other soft tissue work. I tailor my sessions to your needs the combination stretching techniques with various other techniques can help to tame those stubborn pains and get you back to living it up. My work in conjunction with various other health professions has helped to address vertigo, low back pain, numbness and tingling, neck and shoulder pain and knots, sciatica, carpel tunnel, and various other soft tissue related dysfunctions. When not providing optimal massage therapy to my wonderful clients I enjoy time with my family, animals, and plants. I am a bonsai practitioner learning the fine art and loving every minute. It truly is an art that takes patience and time but is very rewarding watching the growth and life that happens as a result of my work. I bring that passion into my practice. I look forward to providing every client with quality therapeutic massage in much the same way and watching as your pains are minimized or subside and you get to grow more in your life. Thank you for choosing me to better your health!

Lomi Lomi

I created an intensive 5 day training in the ancient art of Lomi Lomi under the training of Kumu Gloria Coppola. This broadened my eyes to the sacredness of the mind body connection and I incorporate it in some aspect into every session.

Myofascial Release

I completed the 20 hr course on techniques for the hip and pelvis expanding into the concepts as taught by John Barnes. His concepts and work are very profound and have added another level of knowledge to my work. On the subtle techniques that can truly change structures.

Mattes Method AIS

This course helped me expand my knowledge of stretching and the mechanics of it all. It provided me with adaptable ways to reach muscles deep within the body through with minimal discomfort through isolating and actively moving them through different ranges of motion.

Never had myofacial release, it was great! I have also had Lomi Lomi massage and that was great also. I highly recommend Derrick. I even got 2 sessions for my husband to try myofacial release.

Derrick listened and approached his skill set with me based in MY needs and not a cookie-cutter approach to a first appt. Quickly made a follow up for next week to continue this wellness path

My aches and pains almost always disappear after a massage with Living Healthy Massage. I've been getting massages from him for nearly two years now.

Professional and is successfully addressing my particular issue better than any other masseuse! I am happy with the results!

As a CrossFit enthusiast, I've come to realize that sport massage therapy is just as important as time at the gym. Derrick has great technique and incorporates valuable assisted stretching. If you're looking for true RESULTS, I highly recommend him... If you're looking for some uber-plush atmosphere with a spa like ambiance, this may not be the place for you. Very clean... very effective... great tiered discount program.

Derrick has incredible skills in being able to locate and address areas of inflammation in my body merely through touch. I have been to numerous MTs over the years but none can compare to his skills and that is why I have been a client of his for over 4 1/2 years and will continue to seek his services weekly. I have referred him to several of my friends and they all agree.

Derrick has been my massage therapist for a number of years. I see him weekly. This particular appointment was in addition to my routine weekly session. I highly recommend Derrick if you are interested in receiving a therapeutic massage. Derrick is always able to address particular issues I am having often times without my having to point them out.
