Croft treats pain as a road map to the unwinding of trauma and habit… the opportunity to create limitless perspectives. Through specialized massage his clients are able to afford a healthy journey through life… lives full of wonder and tales of amazing experiences.

Croft’s intense desire to pursue more meaningful life goals and an athletic background in competitive bodybuilding (Mr. Bermuda 1990 and 1991,) masters swimming and Bikram yoga inspired him to achieve a Diploma in Advanced Neuromuscular Massage Therapy and Health Education (ANMT) from the National Holistic Institute (NHI). After 1350 hours  and advancing with Honors Achievement, he enters the field of massage therapy with a passion for contributing to not only the optimization of sports performance for both the recreational and elite athlete but anyone who routinely stretches their physical limits through strenuous activities such as parents with small children or office workers with extended keyboard hours.

Thanks For Getting Me On The MEND

I think Croft's approach is spot-on. I notice an improvement a day or so after I have had a visit. I would highly recommend him to my friends and colleagues. This isn't a typical type of massage. He really gets to the heart of the problem and it's not always what you think it is. I like that some of my old energy is coming back and I think that's due to Croft's work on my messed up neck and back issues.

Croft is an excellent practitioner, always looking for underlying issues that cause the pains, soreness or tightness. Superb!

Amazing is the right word indeed. I had to book a 30 minutes session because I really needed help sooner than the first one hour session available. In such a short time Croft was able to take note of all challenges in my body and help me with my pain. I left feeling much better (pain reduced 80%) and able to move much easier. I was more flexible than I was in years! Next day I felt even better. Can't wait to go back to work on some old chronic stuff. Thank you so much!

I am in recovery from a lower back injury/surgery. I was looking to improve my flexibility, strength and I was hoping to relieve some of the chronic pain I continue to feel. In one visit I have felt more tension relief than in the past few months and some of the pain has lessened. I purchased10 sessions to also cover my other family members and so far, everyone has complimented on the overall wellness, the professionalism, and effectiveness of the sessions. I look forward to my next few sessions and continued progress!

This was my 10-year old daughter's first experience here and was very happy with the results. She felt more relaxed and was ready to play soccer this weekend. She had a prior session from another therapist in San Diego and said this was more beneficial than the last one! She liked the one-on-one treatment and felt very comfortable with the therapist. She said she would recommend the treatment to all her soccer friends!

Good discussion of possible sources of pain and how to proceed with therapy to try to address the problems. I've signed up for more sessions and have good hopes that this will help alleviate some of my hip pain.

Great figuring out the issue. This is not a fluffy massage! This is deep tissue work but specific and not whole body. Very good work!

Croft is an incredibly skilled and professional. His portion of the office space is clean and well organized. I appreciated his reference library and trigger point charts; it gave me a good idea of the information he has studied. We took about 15 minutes to talk about the online history form I had completed; his calm, casual, and non-judgmental demeanor made it easy to talk about my pain and goals for my session. The technique he utilized was new to me. He communicated the methodology well and it made me feel at ease while he was working. After the session, I felt absolutely amazing! The pain and physical restrictions were gone and I didn't feel beat up like I have in the past. This isn't your typical massage session and the results are proof enough that Croft is a highly skilled therapist. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with chronic pain and joint dysfunction.
