[Practice Philosophy] [Why I do what I do] [A little bit about me: hobbies, family, interests]
By combining the three spheres of Athletics, Medicine, and Massage, you see why I specialize in the specific niche I do. As a high level athlete for several decades, I know what my clients are going through. Either the hits on the field, the pain of recovering from a season ending injury, or the hours spent in the gym preparing for the upcoming weekend, because I've been through it for decades. I can help the patient recover quicker. Thus the reason why professional athletes from 23 professional teams,11 college teams, Marathoners, Professional Dancers, gym rats, Wounded Warriors, and other Injury Rehab patients have used me over the years. Patients nicknamed me "The Fix-it guy", because they would walk in hunched over in pain, then walk out standing straight up, and running up the stairs. I incorporate sports stretching into the massage, which some patients have said, "This stretching by itself feels better than the entire session from a previous therapist. My first eighteen years in sports I only had one pulled muscle because of the amount of stretching I would do off the field.
The Medical Sphere includes my strong interest in working in conjunction with Physical Therapists, Personal Trainers, Chiropractors, and other Doctors in order to speed up the recovery process of their patients, or improve their lives. Working with the Elderly demographic for years, plus being around my own grandparents in their decline, has taught me how to work with Dementia \ Alzheimer Patients in Memory Care \ Assisted Living Homes.
The Massage Sphere includes two train tracks. The Left train track I have maxed out the educational limit in this industry by receiving my Bachelors of Applied Science in Injury Rehab Massage, with a Minor in Healthcare Management. On the Right train track, I have maxed out the industry's standard by achieving the highest status of Board Certified Massage Therapist with NCBTMB.
Fifty percent of massage therapists only have a high school diploma. It is rare for one to have a BAS degree, plus having that degree in massage is almost unheard of. Most massage therapists quit after their 7th year in massage. I'm in my 17th year, and don't have any plans to stop for several more decades. Most massage therapists can't work more than four hours per day before their body and concentration give out. Working on professional athletes requires me to work up to nine hours a day on their day off from training without tiring.
