Your local Pensacola, FL massage therapist.

I am an independent massage practitioner, NOT a spa.

  • If you have muscle pain, stiffness or soreness you have come to the right place.

  • I practice both proven, classical massage techniques and myofascial bodywork techniques.

  • I do my best to keep current on medical research to both balance and inform my 20 years of experience.

  • You won’t find me doing voodoo or waving healing crystals, but some people swear my massage techniques work like magic.

  • Massage and bodywork is what I do for a living (to pay the electric bill, mortgage, buy groceries). Although this small business will not make me rich, I can wake up each day and affirm “I am rich” because the people I serve are a treasure and pleasure to work with.

  • I am a male massage therapist. It is estimated 80% of massage therapists in the Untied States are female; get this, a century ago it was just the opposite. Nonetheless, I am not creepy. The massage therapy I practice consists of non-sexual, safe touch; it involves safely and respectfully working with people. Excellent customer service has little to do with gender and everything to do with trust. My practice is built upon professional communication and trustworthiness.

  • Consistently providing great massage & bodywork while managing a small business is indeed physically and mentally demanding. Therefore, I am committed to taking the best care of myself. That means, I treat my body as a temple.

I live a health focused lifestyle, so that I can daily deliver the best care to my clients decades to come.

Who I serve.

All ages and stages of human beings.

As a pet owner, my own dogs and cats love my massage too, but I do my best work with humans.

I have specialized training and years of experience in working with:

Athletes-Performers- Active Adults- Chronic Pain- Whiplash- Neck, Back and Shoulder Pain- Sciatica- Sports Injuries- Tendinopathies- Repetitive Strain and Overuse Injuries
