Note from Jay
I have over a decade of experience working with people from all walks of life. I have had the honor of working with athletes, people suffering from chronic pain, musicians, and even a man who was catastrophically attacked by a grizzly bear in 2003.
I take a strategic and planned approach to help people find relief from pain, and reestablish an active and mobile life again. I have a firm belief that the experience of pain and the therapy to help alleviate that pain is unique to each person. I don’t buy into the one size fits all mentality. I work closely with my clients and take their feedback so we can create a working space together that allows them to feel informed, comfortable, and inspired.
I’ve been seeing Jay for about 6 years, initially for a frozen shoulder, which he definitely helped release. Now I am not suffering any special conditions, but Jay is so sensitive to what my body is telling him that I have a different treatment every time and always leave feeling like my body is a unified happy mass.
Jay is a trusted ally and I highly recommend him if you want improve your body’s ability to move & handle stress. I’ve seen Jay for preoperative care for spinal fusion surgery & shoulder surgery. I believe that Jay’s approach has increased range of motion and minimized recover time & pain for both. Both surgeons were impressed. Other bodywork with Jay? Plenty with low back issues for 20+ years complicated by injuries from car accidents. With Jay’s help, I am more active and have much less pain!
Jay was great. Reviewed my case, carefully chose how to approach it, and went to work gently but firmly, informing me of what he was doing at every step. Exactly what I needed. Thanks!
Jay uses relaxation techniques to calm the muscles. Painless, effective, and I feel recharged after.
I have been seeing Jay for his excellent care for over 10 years. He is always evolving as a massage therapist, perfecting his technique, learning new ones and tailoring treatment to your needs. Not only does he provide top notch body work, his stories and conversation are equally as good. Between the great massage and conversation the hour, sadly, flies by too quickly. Book an appointment today!
I have been going to Jay for various upkeep of my body for years. His mind is able to connect the dots in a sophisticated way, and his massage work is quite effective and respectful. He also has a good sense of humor. I recommend him to close friends regularly.
We call him “McMasterhands” in our house as both my partner & I are clients…His work is conscientious, therapeutic and thorough. I really appreciate his grounded and humor filled approach…Jay is the best!
Just when I think a chronic pain will forever be with me, Jay works his magic and its gone. No two sessions are ever the same. He’s a thinking-person’s LMT.
I have been seeing Jay for massage regularly for a few years. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled and conscientious massage therapist. He will work closely with you to address your specific issues, all with a great sense caring and humor.
I’ve had tendinitis in my right arm for close to a year now, and I finally gave myself a gift and went in to see Jay. I’ve only had one appointment with him so far and I already see improvement! He totally knows what he is doing.
