Professional Massage Therapy Background
I have practiced massage professionally since January of 1999. I graduated from the rigorous Brian Utting School of Massage’s 1,000-hour professional licensing program and have subsequently completed more than 700 hours of professional continuing education.
My practice focuses on 1) the treatment of orthopedic conditions, especially those due to athletic activity and desk/office work and 2) relaxation and wellness massage. I am certified in orthopedic massage and have extensive training in neuromuscular “trigger point” technique, myofascial release, sports massage, massage ethics and professionalism, and craniosacral work, as well as a strong foundation in Swedish and deep-tissue massage.
I am an “anatomy nerd,” studying muscles and other anatomical structures every day. I also read widely on health care, medical research, and massage research.
Publishing and Marketing Background
Before my massage career, I worked in publishing and marketing.
Internet Marketing and Online Publishing
I have been marketing and publishing online since 1989. Even as I have become successful in my massage practice, I have maintained and developed my internet marketing and web publishing skills. This high-tech/high-touch balancing act explains why I am known in some circles as “the internet massage guy.”
College Textbook Publishing
Before my internet career I worked for a dozen years in college textbook publishing as an editor, product-line manager, marketing manager, and field sales rep.
