“This was the first time I had a massage here. Michael was a wonderful person. He did the job brilliantly and I was feeling comfortable throughout the massage. I will be again going there after a month. I will have no hesitation to recommend my friends for the same.”
“Very thoughtful therapist who takes the time to listen to your needs and understand your pain points. You leave feeling so much better.”
“It was the best massage I ever had! Michael was fantastic.”
“The therapists are very knowledgeable in technique and pressure for specific problem areas, and adjust as needed based on feedback. The entire staff is always very welcoming, from the appointment to treatment.”
Michael had a strong desire to find a career in which he could help athletes alleviate and heal from sports related injuries and to simply prevent future injuries. By chance he stumbled on massage while looking for effective methods to treat sports related injuries and after a couple of weeks of doing research and exploring various massage schools, he found that he was drawn to the Colorado School of Healing Arts. Even though his original focus was on sports massage, the short time he spent at CSHA proved to be an effective catalyst in fueling a new dedicated love of massage as a whole.
While sports is still his favorite type of massage, Michael strives to continue in developing his skills in a variety of modalities, and to further understand the mechanical and physiological effects that massage has on the body. What he enjoys most is using massage to put the body in a parasympathetic state, which stimulates "rest and digest". This is done to facilitate relaxation, promote healing and improve flexibility so his clients can spend their days pain free.
