Reduce pain, reduce anxiety and be more active with massage therapy. 

I treat clients with varying levels of pain from surgery*, accidents**, falls, work outs and activities such as hiking, tennis, golf, running or cycling/biking. I have several clients that use relaxation massage to help reduce anxiety.***

The techniques I use are designed to minimize pain during the massage. I rarely use firm pressure to achieve results. I will gently move the ends of a muscle closer together and hold, which achieves amazing results with minimal discomfort and lasting effect. You need only relax on the table and allow the technique to work. 

Areas of therapeutic practice include  SMRT (Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique) and Swedish Techniques.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Jan 19
I started going to Michael after numerous sessions of physical therapy (and chiropractors) spending a ton of money without any relief. I decided to search for a medical massage therapist that would understand my problem and someone I could communicate with. My first experience (and ongoing) with Michael was great! Michael is very professional and communicative and always has great aftercare tips.

Michael's sessions are like a wonderful tune-up for my body. I highly recommend him.

I book for muscle flexibility maintenance and repair. I leave feeling invigorated.

Michael's use of the Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique made for a very different massage experience. It is such a contrast to deep tissue and Swedish.

Exactly what I was looking for. I scheduled a second appointment immediately afterwards

Michael is a very skilled massage therapist. He has taken the up most precautions to keep his office sanitized and safe during the current pandemic.

It was wonderful!

There are NO dislikes. I have been 100% satisfied every time I have gone to Affordable Massage Healing. Michael is extremely competent, polite, and caring. I go home feeling much better after every visit.

Michael is always able to greatly improve whatever painful/stiff areas are bothering me. Regular sessions are essentially healthcare/preventative medicine at this point; they allow me to better recover from and continue taking on challenging workouts/hikes. HIGHLY recommend.
