    John seemed very knowledgeable about the body and was able to target my specific problem areas. He was very professional and the environment was peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely go back.

    John was amazing! We hired him for 2 massages and he came to our house. Can't say enough how relaxed and comfortable we felt. We now plan to utilize his services going forward. I highly recommend him and would give him 10 stars if that was an option!

About this pro

knowledge is power... So is power😉... Combine the two together and you got someone that can do some really detailed manipulation of muscles, with the power to work deeply and effectively.... but that's one end of the spectrum.. I also do less intense work for those just wanting to relax👌 Regardless of the style I use, maintaining a presence of mind throughout the session keeps me in tune with the client and able to think about how best to address any postural dysfunction; your needs come first. I enjoy reducing a person's hurts and helping them be their best self.. my job, as a bodyworker, is to help get a person's body back to a neutral posture by addressing the muscles that are either locked short or locked long in thier tug-o-war with eachother; I try to make that fight an even match.... also, consider how far a person is willing to go.. sometimes a person may just want to mellow out on the table.. and that's ok too.. I like to mix it up anyway.. otherwise it feels repetitive
