Chris believes that “massage therapists in the past have not been given enough credit for the healing power that we possess. Now in 2020, medical research is finally starting to back up the importance of having elite soft tissue practitioners that can identify pathologies quickly to heal injuries but can also help anticipate potential problems as preventative care. Additionally, the more we know about our clients the more we can aide them on their journey to pain-free living. This is why we are dedicated to understanding each client’s mind, body, and spirit together as a whole.”
“I am an Eagle Scout, so trust is very important to me. I also played Semi-pro football for the MidCoast Falcons, and have loved watching and playing sports my whole life. My friends would describe me as being very athletic, driven, compassionate, respectful, and easy to talk to. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, a healthy lifestyle, and helping as many people as I can. ‘What you give to the world is what you get in return.’”
