Richard is originally from Severna Park, MD, but moved to Colorado where he graduated from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood with an AOS degree and certificates for CranioSacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, and Reflexology. He has returned to Maryland and we are fortunate to have him on our talented staff of bodyworkers.
Richard enjoys integrating his specialty therapies with deep tissue work to help clients reach their optimum healthy balance. He also enjoys working with athletes incorporating sports massage techniques to help the athlete achieve their best performance and for post-event recuperation.
Richard has an eclectic background which has ultimately brought him to his passion for massage and bodywork. He was a master painter and drywall finisher for IUPAT Local #1 (Baltimore) and Local #79 (Denver) for 11 years, and and electrical wiring specialist building wind turbines with Vestas Nacelles in Colorado. It was at this company that he began volunteering as a massage therapist for his fellow workers where he gained tremendous insight into the powerful benefits of massage therapy.
Richard is excited to be back in Maryland where he resides with his wife and two young children. His answer to "where would you go on your dream vacation?" - "Anywhere but Kansas!"
