I’m from Chicago originally, moved back to Las Vegas in 1999. I have a wife, 2 daughters, and a son. They are absolutely the reason I choose to do what I do. I’ve been active my whole life riding bikes, running, swimming, etc. growing up. I also train boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Ju-Jitsu and have had a lifetime of aches and pains. I suffered from what doctors call “migraines” since I was about 8yrs old, making me puke and cry. I had shoulder pain to compliment the headaches for about 20yrs. Knee surgery for a stretched ACL, and 2 compressed discs in my low back(L3-L4, L4-L5). All before the age 26! I thought just like everyone else, that this was a “normal” part of life.. I was definitely wrong. I started massage school in March of 2011 and soon realized I was in the right place. We received massage once or twice a day, usually 5 days a week, for 7 1/2 months. I left feeling better then I ever have in my life! I started working at Massage Envy as my first full time massage job. I was there for about 4 1/2 years and is really where I found my passion in recovery/rehabilitation. I was honored to be most booked/highest requested therapist for my last 3 years. I then started learning personal training and vitamin/mineral deficiencies in the body. Wanting to approach the body from all angles for recovery. My knee surgery ultimately failed after 9 years and I started having the same issues again. Through simple stretching and exercise, mixed with a little massage and nutrition, I’ve been able to return my knee back to before it was injured. I have no back pain (correcting my posture for my knee), my headaches are gone, and no shoulder pain. All through massage, exercise, and nutrition! I’ve also learned through my clients that we all have similar issues, the world seems to abuse us all in about the same way. Through simple understanding of ourselves, we can take back our power and start to feel better. Truly empowering people to be healthier through a holistic approach.
