I have been practicing massage therapy since 2014. I am certified in myofascial release and Rocktape fascial taping (level 2) and am 1 of only a couple hundred level 3 Fascial Stretch Therapists in the country. I am also certified in LifeStretch.

I received my Massage Therapy education from Oakland Community College after earning my A.A.S in exercise science from OCC as well and my B.S. in Health Studies from Siena Heights University.
I was a personal trainer, Olympic Weightlifting coach and Kettlebell Sport coach at a National level for 8 years prior to entering the massage therapy field.
I have always been fascinated with the human body, human movement and athletic performance. As I continued my exercise science career, I became more and more interested in the recovery and mobility and the impact that had on athletic performance. This is why I decided to pursue my education in massage therapy and ultimately start Vital Restoration Massage and Recovery.
For the past 5 years I have trained Kettlebell Sport full time (professionally). In this time I have become National champion 5 years in a row and have qualified and competed with Team USA for the past 3 years traveling to Russia, Germany and Ireland. I am also the current North American record holder in the 32kg snatch and the 32kg biathlon total.
I believe it is my experience, both educationally and athletically and my passion, that allows me to better relate to my clients and ultimately provide a better service.

Highly recommend John to anyone looking for a sport massage! He's very personable and makes you feel at ease. He's also super knowledgeable.... You can see his gears working as he's trying to figure out best how to work out your kinks! I'll be back soon!

John has great insight into how to fine the "real problem". More times than not, while "X" may hurt, the real issue is in another part of the body or a little further up the muscle. By focusing on "root cause", John is able to even more effective.

John looks for causation of your issues, finds it, then helps you implement a plan to overcome them. Most will say they wish they found him much sooner.

John is very knowledgeable and professional.

John paid very close attention on where my pain is located and developed a plan in a matter of mins. He even took a different approach to the first session to help relieve pain. I look forward to more sessions to help correct the issue area and strengthen it as well.
