Tom became a massage therapist after retiring from the software development business. He received his massage therapy certification from Parkland College, and  graduated with more than 750 hours of hands-on training and massage experience.

Tom's interest in massage therapy began in the late 1990s. Over the years he has relied on massage therapy to recover from knee pain, hip and sciatic pain, and to recover from a shoulder injury. He knows first-hand how beneficial massage therapy can be for overall health and wellness.

Tom's practice focuses on detailed, custom-tailored massage work designed to get results. Whether you’d like to focus on pain relief, preventative care, or recovery from an injury, he’ll create a customized massage treatment plan for you. Tom’s integration of deep tissue and Swedish massage techniques combined with trigger point therapy is highly effective in relieving stress, muscle discomfort and tension.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Sahar on Sep 11
It was the best back massage I've had in a while!
by Anonymous on Sep 06
This was my second massage with Tom and have really enjoyed both experiences. Tom is incredibly professional. He listens to and addresses the problem areas that you point out. After 2 visits, I feel as though I have more energy and much less pain in my shoulders and lower back. The service that you get for the price is outstanding!
