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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

The best masseuse around!!
by jeanine on Oct 21
I actually felt taller when I left. I cannot believe how stressed and tight my muscles were. Definitely will be back.

John answers all my questions. He also makes sure I understand what I can do at home as well.
by Karen on Oct 13
I like how John is trained in his field. He knows when to make the joint work harder or not so intense. I truly believe this is opening up my joints. I had an injury to my knee over a 16 months. I can now bend it longer. I’m so happy to find John. Thank you John.

John has really helped me. I’ve been recovering from some knee issues and he’s helped my knee get back to normal. He’s also started changing my shoulder mobility. I like that he gives you things to work on to help keep issues under control too.
