PAIN RELIEF MASSAGE
With over 10 years of experience providing therapeutic massage, Michael has crafted a signature massage style focused on sustained pain relief and deep relaxation.
The health intake is thorough, so he understands some of the experiences that have shaped the function of your body, what you do on a daily basis, where you hurt or have limited range of motion, and what expectations you have about therapeutic massage.
His therapeutic style of massage incorporates warming-up the muscle tissue with traditional Swedish techniques, so Deep Tissue massage isn't painful, combined with stretching, traction, and myofascial release techniques, an immersive environment conducive to relaxation, and subtle energy work to tie it all together. Detailed. Intuitive.
Michael's massage practice is located within the BOND Wellness Studios @ 13354 Midlothian Turnpike, Suite 101 - Inside you will find a quiet and relaxing environment with strict protocols in place for sanitation and cleanliness, and air purifiers within the treatment rooms for added safety and comfort.

"Michael was very thorough, both in the intake process and the actual massage. He spent time asking questions and listening to concerns. He answered all my questions very professionally and knowledgeably. The massage was thorough and addressed all the problem areas that had brought me in for the service"
"I worked with Michael years ago, and he was good. We recently reconnected and I am so thrilled we did. He’s really developed his own style that combines the science of anatomy and physiology with the intuition of touch. His draping is impeccable and he was able to help relieve months of stress and physical contraction that seeing other more specifically aggressive therapists were unable to do. He does focused relaxation that really accessed the parasympathetic system while still addressing the fascia and muscular contraction that can cause so much pain and discomfort. The fire cupping is awesome!!! I’m so exited to start seeing Michael on a monthly basis."
"Michael is a skilled, compassionate massage therapist. He takes the time to assess a client's needs before the massage begins. During the massage, he is able to apply just the right amount of pressure, using techniques that really help "undo" the deepest levels of tension and provide the most relaxation. I'd highly recommend Michael to anyone!"
"I was extremely stressed out and had just pulled a muscle in my leg. Michael was very professional, he was easy to talk to, and I felt completely at ease. The massage was perfect and he encouraged me to tell him if I needed more or less pressure. When I left I was walking in the clouds (without a trace of a limp!). I have to add that I was palpably less stressed for the rest of the week."
"I started with Michael because of a shoulder injury, which he helped heal back to health. He gave me back my range of motion, and I would highly recommend him for therapeutic massage!"
