Thomas Richter

I hereby declare that massage is the best way to achieve world peace!!!

.... Ok, maybe not. But it would be a good start right? Hiya! I'm Thomas Richter, but my friends and clients call me TJ. I have always been a healer growing up in many various ways. It seemed almost intuitive for me to help someone with an illness, be at someone's bedside to be that positive support or work on someone who had a sore muscle. Until now, however, I had never put those energies into a focused intention like I do when I massage. I had chosen to be a massage therapist because it is...

.... Ok, maybe not. But it would be a good start right? Hiya! I'm Thomas Richter, but my friends and clients call me TJ. I have always been a healer growing up in many various ways. It seemed almost intuitive for me to help someone with an illness, be at someone's bedside to be that positive support or work on someone who had a sore muscle. Until now, however, I had never put those energies into a focused intention like I do when I massage. I had chosen to be a massage therapist because it is the only practice that I found that the practitioner actually has dedicated time to be with the client. I did consider being a doctor. That would have been fun but have you ever waited in a doctor's office for 2 hours just to see the doctor for 5 minutes. You have? Me too! But that isn't my style. A nurse would have been equally as fun, but with what I would want to do I would be the one trying to be in 4 rooms at once. They haven't mastered cloning yet so that is a no go. 


OK, all bad attempts at joking aside. Through all the hardships and trials I have faced in my life (we all have had these, right?) I have learned that this is what I am supposed to be doing. This is what I am good at. This is my passion in life. I want to be a part of any potential clients wellness or recovery plan. My training at the school is deeply rooted in Swedish massage, but I have learned to grasp my intuitive nature to listen to the body to provide results that satisfy my clients wishes. My education gave me the ability to be able understand what the human body has or is going through, how to be a part of the healing process and help aid that process in the most effective way I can. With these 2 halves now working as a whole, there is a whole new dimension of the art of healing I am exploring and sharing with clients one by one.

by Shannon on May 08
I visited TJ three and a half hours after I completed a half marathon and had no idea what to expect or how my body would react. That all disappeared the minute I walked in. TJ is amazing. The ambience of the massage room, the relaxing music, his massage technique and patience made this an amazing experience. I have found my long-term massage therapist and highly recommend you book an appointment with him when you can. I know I plan to :-) thank you so much TJ :-)

TJ is very educated and passionate about human anatomy and how it interacts with the muscular structure. His massage technique is slow, steady, deep if you like it that way ( I do) I feel loose, stronger and even cleansed after each session. He is not rushed for time, he is kind and will educate me anytime I have questions. I have terrible injuries that are not healing with chiropractic care, TJ started using his Cupping techniques on my neck, back and shoulders and WOW! Great results so far:)

Friendly, made sure I was comfortable and did not take off time for intake. Asked my opinion on music, aroma and areas to focus on.

EXCELLENT MASSAGE! The best Swedish massage I've had (and I've had a lot). TJ took several minutes before the session to thoroughly review my pre-appointment sheet and expectations/desires for the massage. He also has some unique and awesome additions to his massage parlor like a pregnancy cushion for prenatal massages, arm rest for face-down portion of massage, and starts the massage face-up. I also like firm pressure and TJ definitely was able to give a firm presssure! It was amazing! He alotted the full 90 mins to the massage despite the questions beforehand which is becoming more and more rare. I'll definitely be coming back and recommending him to my friends/family!
