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.
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.
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!
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.
Jay is simply the best. I’ve been working with him for 3+ years and not sure what condition my body would be in without his masterful hands and vast knowledge…And he has a great sense of humor. THE BEST!
Jay has helped me to ferret out some long term complex structural issues. His curiosity and creativity have been tested by these issues but they have met their match and are on the run! Thanks Jay, for the great work!
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.
Jay uses relaxation techniques to calm the muscles. Painless, effective, and I feel recharged after.
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’s a fantastic massage therapist. He has helped me with some pretty non-specific physical complaints that I had no idea could be addressed with massage therapy. He is fantastic at his job and also a great person! Go see him and get a massage now! You won’t be sorry!
