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

by Gregory on Mar 18
The work that John does is unmatched. I am sold that he can fix all of my ailments! I have never been to a massage therapist that afterwards you see performance improvements. I spent thousands on PT's and Chiros trying to address my issue with pain and weakness in pushing movements from my shoulder and after one visit, I am miraculously better. Even people I know mentioned that they have seen an improvement.

So pleased to hear John is experienced with the issue I’m having and confident that he can fix the problem. It’s exciting to know that there is something that will help with the tightness and pain I’ve experienced and I’m looking forward to getting more things resolved with future visits. I feel very confident in Johns ability to resolve my problems and propel me to reach my fitness goals.

My overall experience was excellent. John knows exactly what to do and how to do it. I have had to stretch, roll, band stretch , mobility exercises everyday to keep pain free and mildly limber along with monthly deep fascial tissue massage. Thank you John for all that you do!
