Massage Therapy is a healing modality involving the manipulation of muscles and soft tissues of the body. My signature therapeutic massage blend incorporates the appropriate mix of techniques and essential oils based on health history and the situation in the body. This is ideal for those that receiving massage on a regular basis, where each session builds off of previous sessions. Most clients receive the greatest therapeutic benefit from seeing me weekly for recovery of chronic pain and muscle reconditioning, and every two to three weeks for muscle maintenance, general stress relief, improved body awareness, and occasional aches and pains.
How can massage help me?
The health benefits of Massage Therapy varies from person to person, but can include relaxation and body awareness, relief of muscle tension and pain, improved range of motion and flexibility, increased energy, more restful sleep, reduction of stress hormones, increased serotonin and release of endorphins, improved circulation, increased immunity and more active fighter cells, more efficient digestion, easier breathing, improved posture, and a greater sense of the mind-body-spirit connection. I am not a doctor and do not diagnose illness or disease, but have knowledge of many conditions and how Massage Therapy can relate to the healing process. Massage Therapy can be recommended for post-operative recovery, and to minimize, reduce, and realign scar tissue from injuries or surgery. For all serious health concerns, please consult the appropriate medical doctor or healthcare professional.

"Michael delivered a great massage, finding all of my problem areas. I felt well taken care of during my session and left feeling super relaxed. My shoulders felt better than they have in a long time, and I'll definitely be back for another session soon!" ~ Megan in Arlington, VA
"Michael is attentive and takes notes after each session. He reviews them each time I come in, to follow up and see what I'd like to do different or the same. I was so impressed that I bought my mom a massage and now she is a regular customer too. I'm very happy with the business as a whole." ~ Laurie in Stone Ridge, VA
"I was extremely stressed out and had just pulled a muscle in my leg. Michael was very professional, he was easy to talk to, and I felt completely at ease. The massage was perfect and he encouraged me to tell him if I needed more or less pressure. When I left I was walking in the clouds (without a trace of a limp!). I have to add that I was palpably less stressed for the rest of the week." ~ Jessi in Sterling, VA
"Thanks to Michael for introducing me to Essential Oils and an awesome recipe for DIY deodorant. I used lavender in mine and I must say...not only does the scent last longer but it even withstood a strenuous workout!! I'll be throwing away my Tom's deodorant and sticking with this from now on" ~ Tonya in Boston, MA

"Michael was very attentive and took time to find out what type of massage I was looking for, any special needs I had, checked in with the level of pressure, and had really nice technique." ~ Bonnie in Oakton, VA
"What an amazing end to a stressful week! Who knew what wonders a 60 minute "escape" could provide. Michael and I discussed my health history and what I was looking for. He was very professional and made me feel right at home. Let me just say the massage was wonderful! I left feeling like a brand new woman and can't wait to go back. I will be recommending this place to all of my friends." ~ Noel in Gainesville, VA
"I recently suffered from a herniated disc and had gone through rigorous physical therapy. Mixing in a massage from Michael once a week was just what the doctor ordered. Not only was the environment peaceful and soothing, the massage itself was always @ a comfortable pressure level. He knew when and what to ask to make it as satisfying for me as possible. I highly recommend Michael."
