Tom is so great! I prefer deep touch and he always finds the precise spots that need work and always gives me such relief from discomfort/pain. As a chiropractor, I can always trust Tom when I refer a patient to him to take care of them in the best way possible. Tom's professional and calming demeanor is always so comforting and his hands truly are gifted. Thank you Tom!

About me

I do therapeutic massage that helps to get to the root cause of pain. It relieves tension in the body and restores fluid movement and addresses the deep issues of pain. Problem areas I work on include: neck/shoulder pain, hip imbalances, low back tension, sciatica, carpal tunnel stress, TMJ, rotator cuff injuries or any repetitive motion injury. I'll be happy to consult with you about any condition you're concerned about!

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and raised in the countryside, I was close with my parents and 2 siblings. Moving to California in the mid's 70's, I lived in the wilderness of Big Sur for 3 years on a journey of learning to grow my own food, providing for myself, self discovery and spiritual awakening. It was there I met the master yogi Baba Hari Dass and after receiving a B.S. in horticulture and getting married, I moved to Mt. Madonna Center in Watsonville to immerse myself in the 8 limbed system of Ashtanga yoga. My work at MMC was as varied as the weather: organic vegetable garden manager, water system operator, fireman, financial reconciler, administrator of personnel as well as daily operations, security officer, emergency responder, herbalist, and bodyworker. Since 1999, I have collected herbs at 9000' in the Sierras and made them into medicines. In 2006, I learned Swedish massage at Harbin Hot Springs only to be followed shortly thereafter with orthopedic massage. I helped teach the Swedish course at Harbin for several years, the last time being Jan 2015 before the devastating fire later that fall.

Since learning yoga and meditation in the late 70's, it has become a daily practice for me with profound effects. The traditional Ashtanga yoga that "Babaji" taught us is steeped in selfless service, humility, non violence, truthfulness and subtle wisdom. I bring these qualities to my massage practice for a deeper understanding of the nature of life and we the people who live it.
