I have been practicing massage since 2011.  I was an instructor at the Omaha School of Massage & Healthcare of Herzing University until relocating to New England in 2017.  I am licensed in Nebraska, Iowa, and Massachusetts, and am Board Certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.  I hold a membership with the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals because of their devotion to education and sharing knowledge.

I began my career in massage therapy because helping people to feel better gives me purpose.  I hold a strong faith in the body’s ability to heal itself.  As a massage therapist, I am able to help a body to release tension areas, and return to its normal working condition.

Among the many benefits to receiving regular massage therapy, these are two that I find most noteworthy.  An advantage for everyone is its ability to enhance your body’s immune functions.   For many, the key benefit comes with massage’s ability to reduce pain from several chronic conditions.  You can find some of the other benefits from a list of resources below.

There are many different techniques and types of massage therapy.  Each of these have specific indicators for their use, and many work best in tandem.  I have taken advanced training in:

 • Deep Tissue

 • Reflexology

 • Swedish

 • Oncology

 • Sports

 • Resistance Release

 • Neuromuscular

 • and more

Clinic Manager

I coached aspiring massage therapists to perform successfully in a clinical environment serving the public. Working with other instructors, we held our students to very high standards to encourage further advancement of the level of expertise expected of our field.

Advanced Spa Therapies Instructor

This course was designed to explore the physiological effects of the mechanical and chemical treatments available. We provided a fun way to learn new tools, techniques, and perspectives that allow student therapists to become capable care providers.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Reflexology services

I work as a nurse and put a lot of ware and tare on my body. Tom was able to get rid of my knots, relax my neck and help with my migraines. I highly recommend his services.

The whole experience was great. Loved the home made message oil!

Tom was really helpful with releasing my muscle tension and also helping relieve the intensity of my nerve pain with massage and a technique that helps with range of motion and realigning what gets out of place from the ways we compensate for pain in our bodies. I am pretty picky about massage therapists and I think that the combination of Tom's skills in approaching my multi-layered pain/injury issues was extremely beneficial to my quality of life and personal work on healing. He also helped me after the massage with suggestions on exercises to help open up places in my hand and shoulder that have gotten out of place from my pain. I would definitely recommend him to anyone working with an old injury, pain, or just needing some relaxation from stress. Thanks so much Tom. You are good at what you do, have a range of techniques in your massage bag, and seem to really care about your clients well being. That's a winning combination for those of us looking for quality care. Thank you again.

My appointment with Tom A. was great. Tom's knowledge about the muscles, connective tissue were very helpful. He took extra time with me. I would recommend having a massage with Tom.
by Ken on Mar 15
Tom has the perfect balance of deep-tissue and 'regular' massage. Of all the people I've tried, he does the best job of addressing my pain points. His neck/back work in particular is excellent.
by Derek on Jan 13
Tom did an amazing job. He explained to me what he was doing and why he was doing it before hand. I was 100 percent happy with his services and will use him again.
