About Us

I specialize in therapeutic, sports, medical & prenatal massage
I use a combination of techniques like range of motion, stretches, deep tissue, Thai, Swedish, myofascial & trigger point release to achieve the best possible results for each client,
Deep tissue doesn't mean that it has to hurt, I tailor each individual clients session based on their specific need & comfort.

I have over 15 years of experience working with clients who have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. The focus for clients with Fibromyalgia is to engage the body using integrative massage techniques in order to sustain health or facilitate a more healthy lifestyle.

It really was an amazing experience. I was so relaxed and comfortable. I would not change a thing! I did have some right sided neck pain for about twenty-four hours, but I used the Bio-Freeze as directed. I hope I can get to a point where I can do once a month maintenance. Perhaps we can discuss goals at my next visit.

He listens to what yours symptoms are and works on that area to improve any issues going on. You won't get a better deep tissue massage. I have a back issue going on I switched my husband appointment and I took his appointment and he also got me in 2 other times in the same week to continue to work on the low back issue.

I have a stressful job; I drive a lot for work; I am a runner (for exercise, the sport, and for mental relaxation). And...I do not stretch out nearly enough. As a result...my muscles get very tight and knotted up. Tom did an excellent job assessing my situation, and working out the knots. I asked for a deep tissue/sports massage. I learned good (great) stretches, and got relief from the tight (knotted up muscles). I ran today (less than 24 for hours after my massage...and felt great. I strongly recommend Tom Patefield for a deep tissue massage!

Tom listened to and addressed my needs, as well as attending to issues I didn't even realize were causing my symptoms. HIs calm, professional manner helped to ease any anxiety I felt about potential pain from the process. I will definitely return. AND, I will tell all of my friends about my fabulous experience!

Tom is well rounded with his intellect and physical skills. He has strong hands. This is especially important because it means he doesn't have to compensate with his elbows like too many other message therapists have to. He's personable and friendly. I was completely comfortable and relaxed. I'll be going back.
