I'm an independent licensed massage therapist working out of a Chiropractic Sports Therapy Center in North Dallas, TX near the Galleria. I provide Therapeutic massage and corrective bodywork to address stress, injury recovery, pain management and to improve sports performance for a variety of clients or all ages. My goal with each client is to tailor a therapeutic session to address each person's individual needs. I have a restorative touch that that will leave you feeling refreshed, with improved flexibility and a more peaceful emotional and physical balance. I hope to see you soon on your journey to greater health.
What I love most about my job is the difference I can make in a client's wellbeing and health in a short amount of time - I find the work very rewarding. I'm passionate about what I do and believe therapeutic body work is transformative.
Roger did an exceptional job listening to what I had going on and discussing what he thought would be best and what he planned to do. The session was extremely helpful and I plan to continue working with him to further my results. It was an outstanding experience.
Roger was amazing. He incorporated a lot of stretching that I so needed. He consistently checked on me to make sure the pressure was ok and he was very thorough. I highly recommend him and I look forward to my next session with Roger.
This is YOUR session - it’s all about YOU, and I want you to get the most benefit possible from our time together, so speak up! If you’re uncomfortable for any reason or just want something adjusted; different pressure, more time on an area , different position, tilt the face-cradle, shift the leg bolster, don’t like the music or if you are too hot or too cold - let me know. I can easily make an adjustment that will make your session more enjoyable and relaxing. So don’t hesitate to communicate - I’m happy to accommodate your requests and you will have a better session.
Please arrive about ten minutes early for your first appointment. There is a short new-client intake form required by the State of Texas which should take about three minutes to complete. This is where you record any past or present injuries, and other physical conditions I should be made aware of. You may also download the PDF form, print and complete it at home. Arriving a bit early gives you time to complete paperwork, visit the restroom and to relax. Pro Tip: this is a great time to switch your cell phone to silent mode.
We’ll spend a couple of minutes discussing the intake form, which areas you would like worked on or avoided, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed, techniques to be used, your draping preference and determining if there are any contraindications for massage.
If you choose to undress for your session, I’ll step out of the room to give you privacy while you undress as much or as little as you’d like, then you’ll settle onto the comfortable, heated massage table under the fresh top sheet and I’ll knock before re-entering. For conservative draping sessions, only the body part being worked on is exposed and nothing is uncovered without your permission.
If at any time you’re at all uncomfortable please let me know and we’ll adjust the table position, technique, temperature, draping, music or whatever is needed to make your session more enjoyable and relaxing.
At the end of your session I’ll leave a hot hand towel for your use, step out of the room to allow you privacy to redress, offer you a bottle of water, address any questions you may have and schedule your next appointment.
I graduated with honors from the School of Massage Therapy at Parker Chiropractic University in 2009 and have since completed additional training in various advanced techniques including: Orthopedic Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Sports Massage, Kinesio-Taping, Lymphatic Drainage, and Thai Massage. While each of my sessions is therapeutically focused I strive to make the session as relaxing and restorative as possible and often mix in techniques such as: Swedish, Myofascial, Hot Stone, and Reflexology.
I hold a Personal Training Certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine. Additional college credits include classes in nutrition, exercise physiology, anatomy & physiology kinesiology and gross anatomy. I also hold a BA in Management Information Systems.
My standard rates are:
60 minute session - $75
90 minute session - $95
120 minute session - $125
I work with a wide range of clients from all walks of life - male, female and transgender individuals. My clients and clinic patients range in age from 12 to 95 years old. I’ve worked on professional athletes from the NFL, PGA and NBA and on senior citizens recovering post-op from a procedure. Many of my clients are health care professionals - doctors, nurses, dentists, medical technicians and other massage therapists. Others have high-stress jobs in finance, IT and management. I do my best to treat every person on my table with equal respect and adapt a wide range of techniques to meet their individual needs and health conditions regardless of where they are in their walk in life.
