Our Therapists and Hours
Why and how did you get involved in your profession?
Massage has always been in the back of my mind, but didn’t take steps toward the dream until working multiple jobs wore on me enough to stop prolonging entering massage school. I went to the Columbia River Institute of Massage Therapy and had an great experience learning different methods.
What did you do prior to working at Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic?
I worked at Lake Chelan Physical Therapy for 3 years and Local Myth Pizza for about 5 years.
Describe your key services, areas of specialty, and what sets you apart from others in your profession?
Massage therapy is my service. I have the ability to switch therapy types from deep tissue to relaxation based on what the patient wants as well as how they respond-everyone is different. I like to think of myself as consistent. I can apply lots of pressure or not too much, firm and consistent. Having worked in a physical therapy office, I like to incorporate small movements in with my massage.
Describe your family life, hobbies, involvement in community, and passions.
To be honest, when I was growing up my family was not a touchy family, we occasionally gave each other hugs but that was it. As of recent, we are all much more connected even though we are quiet. My hobbies are music, video games, guns, our dogs, rock hunting, bowling, and always learning something new. My wife and I try to do anything that we can to be involved in our community here in Chelan/Manson. My passions are definitely music, I play guitar, baritone, and saxophone. I also often play video games with my friends, it's a great way to stay connected with friends who no longer live nearby, it is fun and relieves stress.
