Fred believes in “the importance of a better you.” His massage services are open to locals and visitors alike, and always customized to best meet individual needs for health and well-being.
Fred has worked in a number of industries, from sales and customer service to education, but it was his experience working with handicapped and disabled adults that first made him realize his passion for helping people. Today, that passion is realized through aiding clients in their efforts to live healthier, stronger lives.
Fred draws upon several different techniques and modalities, resulting in a unique and individualized experience for each client. He takes the time to get to know his clients and their concerns along with their histories at the start of each meeting. He strives to help them achieve relaxation, reduced stress, pain reduction and improved circulation.
In order to make the most of each session, Fred also takes care to talk about healthy habits and lifestyle choices with his clients. These can range from nutrition to posture, and are driven by his desire to help people live, feel great along with educating them in continuing to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A typical session may include Swedish, deep tissue or myofascial release techniques in order to relieve pain and facilitate injury recovery. Fred also incorporates energy work, reiki and stretching techniques. It is his goal to address the root cause of pain, whether it is body mechanics, anxiety or anything in between.
Fred believes in the benefits of massage not only for personal comfort but for quality of life as well. Bodywork, he says, can lead to greater confidence and self-esteem. He hopes to treat his clients to what he describes as, “a level of healing and relaxation that rebuilds the self that has been damaged by stress to the body and soul.”

I highly recommend Fredrick Dennis. I met him last year when I had severe back pain and neck pain. When he works on you he tunes into your body and when you leave you are feeling great. Frederick is constantly taking classes and upgrading his skills. He is not just a massage therapist, he is a gifted healer. I particularly like to book his two hour massage. It's not just a feel good Massage it's therapeutic and healing. I have several friends that I have referred to him and they call me up after a session and thank me for helping them find him. He is the best massage therapist we've ever been to!
