John has been doing massage as a full time pursuit for over 22 years. Most people come to him the first time because they are in pain, or have some muscle or groups of muscles tendons or attachment points acting up. John does an excellent job of getting people out of pain, and helping them restore their range of motion in one, or a few sessions. But he can also do a very relaxing Zone you out to never land massage, his version of Esalan Massage.
John uses a combination of massage modalities in each massage: Swedish massage strokes and Esalan Massage strokes that are similar, but more flowing, and some of which go the length of the body, getting the client in touch with the whole of their being. Deep Tissue, Trigger Point or Neuromuscular type work to relieve pain from knotted up tissue in muscles; Connective Tissue Massage ( similar to myofascial release) that relieves tension and pain in skin and connective tissue, and helps release stubborn trigger points or knots in deep muscle; and Reiki integrated with his version of Reconnective Healing. These are methods of working with the energy field in and round the body to restore the self healing wisdom of eh body-mind-spirit continuum. The energy work also helps release stubborn trigger points in muscles and Fascia. learn more...
But what John really looks forward to is getting his clients beyond having a massage for pain relief to a massage that they receive for the pleasure of it which allows them to zone out and get really relaxed while any areas that frequently act up are worked out without disturbing their sense of peace and tranquility. John usually does a massage that takes between an hour and 15 minutes and an hour and a half of actual on the table work John finds every knot and region of tight connective tissue and gets it to release. But he uses some relaxing, feel good strokes, before during and after the deep work to make it an overall pleasant experience.
John’s interest is in helping people have healthy happy lives by giving them excellent massages, and stimulating their interest in nutrition and health so that they can learn more about how to take care of their bodies and so that they will function well in the stresses they encounter going through life.
