About this pro

I have been a massage therapist for 20 years. I incorporate massage into treatment for neuromuscular problems. I was trained by an instructor from Belgium. The technique is long deep strokes done at a very slow pace. This allows using more pressure without causing any discomfort. I warm the massage lotion as it feels better when applied to the skin. I use a hot towel on your face and then at the end to remove the lotion. I can do 60, 90, and 120 minute massages. Feel free to contact me with any questions. 

I enjoy meeting new people and helping them to feel better. I also still enjoy the people that have been with me for years. There are those who feel a periodic treatment is integral to their health and wellbeing. 

I enjoy making massage a part of a treatment or as a stand alone intervention. I like the physicality of it. I specialize in deep tissue and sports massage. I recognize the benefits of a great massage all by it's self.

  • Joshua L.

    You can definitely tell Ed has been at this for years. The massage far exceeded my expectations. He was able to help me with my shoulder/neck and low back issues. He knew exactly where to go. I slept great that night and will definitely be going back to see him.

  • Jonathan R.

    Ed was thorough, sensitive, and non-intrusive. A very business-like, vigorous massage. I will definitely return and I recommend him enthusiastically.

  • Gail G.

    Ed listens to all my concerns. He has successfully addressed both pain an neurologic deficits after emergency surgery. He has also helped my anxiety quite a bit. I feel like I got my life back

I have a Bachelor in Nursing and a Master of Acupuncture Degree. I have been a nurse for years with experience in Critical Care and Behavioral Health Nursing.

After my own phenomenal experience with acupuncture, I decided I wanted a career tha allowed me more undivided time with people than nursing allowed.

Children as young as six. My oldest patient is 91. Besides physical issues, I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in life and would like to move forward.
