I BELIEVE IN GIVING PEOPLE THE PROPER TOOLS OF INQUIRY. OFTEN WE NEED TO IDENTIFY THE MOVEMENT HABIT BENEATH THE PAIN TO ALLOW TRUE RECOVERY FROM CHRONIC ISSUES.

I have been in practice for over 17 years with 1800+ hours of bodywork and sports medicine education. I have helped over 1000 clients recovery from chronic pain and limitation through soft tissue therapy and teaching better engagement in the body. He has worked with Cirque du Soleil, the Olympic Training Center and many professional athletes in the competitive and performance world. My work focuses on issues such as tendonitis, joint pain and injury recovery. When you can fully recover from acute and chronic injuries you can return to what you love doing with confidence--at home or on the field.


Restricted tissue creates a mechanical problem.  movement and

vitality both increase when the tissue is freed from adhesion.

What led me to soft tissue therapy and movement coaching?

My interest in bodywork and movement performance came about through the study of martial arts in my teens and my search to overcome my own migraine pattern. Growing up I was plagued by headaches and chronic pain when I did sports. Through careful training with martial arts masters and treatments with Chinese Medicine Doctors I was able to solve many of the alignment and structural weakness problems holding me back.

Since then I have been involved in sports medicine and movement coaching so I can help other people who struggle to hit their training goals without being held back by constantly recurring pain. 

 

Proper alignment is achieved when there is a connection between

posture, Breath and engaged soft-tissue.   

 

After years of training internal martial arts from Tai Chi Chuan to Bagua, and studying such training methods as Hardstyle Kettlebell and Qigong, I have developed an awareness of kinetic movement, fascia and joint loading that is hard to find in text books. The skills of observation from training these movement arts still has an impact on my work today.  

I'm always glad to meet anybody who is pushing themselves and looking for better solutions to recover faster or handle injuries.  I wouldn't have come this far if I hadn't found bodywork early on. I'm glad to be in a position where I can share what I've learned along the way.
