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.

John is the best in the business

Loved that I felt like a new person afterwards! Loved that he gave me exercises to follow up/maintain what he did. Loved that he said this will prob be a one time fix and didn’t try to sell me a package or any products. But, I will be back, even though I’m doing his stretching exercises I want to go back every so often to stave off problems. I want to address problems when they start instead of after they’ve been persistent.

I am 100% convinced that John is the best therapist in the greater metro-Detroit area. Always professional and extremely knowledgeable, it seems as though John is able to diagnose any painful area or mobility issue and get right to the heart of what is causing the problem. I always leave feeling that my concerns were completely addressed.

I was really impressed with John. He came highly recommended from some trusted friends, and even after one appointment, I noticed improvements in my shoulder. He was very courteous, professional, knowledgable, and I’m optimistic he can help me with my joints and muscles. I will definitely see him again.
