My name is John and I am a Board Certified Massage Therapist. I graduated from Sister Rosalind's School of Massage and Clinic in the spring of 2003. At the time, it was one of the best schools in the Twin Cities for massage therapy.
Since I am a firm believer in constantly improving my craft, I have participated in numerous continuing education seminars. Two forms of hands-on therapy that have really resonated with me are John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release and John E. Upledger's Craniosacral Therapy. I have found both to have a gentle, yet profound affect on the body itself.
In my free time, I am a dance instructor at the Social Dance Studio in Minneapolis. My beautiful wife, Andrea, and I go out dancing whenever we can because it is a great passion of ours.
About my Massage Practice
The type of bodywork that I practice is not the traditional relaxation massage, but more focused on the treatment of both acute and chronic pain. My clients have included those with nerve pain, headaches, lower back pain, fibromyalgia, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and plantar fasciitis just to name a few.
Your First Session
My goal is to get to know where your body is out of balance as quickly as possible. I do this by asking you to fill out a general health history form and conducting a body structural analysis. To better facilitate this, men should wear loose fitting workout shorts and women should wear both loose fitting shorts and a sports bra/tank top.
