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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by amy on Dec 04
Really great and has the hot stone option which was a nice addition
by David on Dec 01
TJ is a great and unique masseuse with a strong pair of hands. Good feel from a good person. I felt great after and feel great today.
by Deb on Nov 14
So much knowledge, great massage. He even taught me how to stretch and prevent future injury. TJ really impresses me with muscle and skeleton knowledge more than any of the other 12 or 15 massage therapist I've worked with. The Hot Rock is a wonderful addition to relax my painful sciatica plus it's really nice in the winter to have that cozy warm table

TJ’s approach to massage therapy is wholistic, precise and professional. The physical space and attentive care provided allowed for a thoroughly enjoyable and therapeutic session. TJ ‘gets it’

He is generous with his time and really gets the knots out.

I only see TJ for my massages every time I come back into town from Georgia. TJ, you are the only one that can get my neck and back feeling better.
