I received my massage therapy training at West Side
Tech from a distinguished member of the Florida
Massage Therapy Board.
As a retired businessman, native New Yorker, long-time
competitive runner, race walker and athletic coach, I
understand from personal experience the benefits of
massage for body, mind and spirit. I understand the
unique needs of both athletes and seniors.
I became interested in Massage Therapy after completing
the last mile of a very hot and humid 1980 Honolulu
Marathon with hamstring spasms. 2 Japanese therapists
worked on the hamstrings for 30 to 45 minutes by
utilizing a Shiatsu Massage Technique.
The very next day I ran 10 miles with no ill effects from
the marathon. So I made a resolution that some day I
would help others in the same way.
I enjoy helping all achieve the goal of optimizing the body
to perform either every day activities or athletic events at
the highest possible level.
I've attained numerous awards and experience in:
Coaching and playing basketball & soccer.
Coaching Track and Field.
Coaching Long Distance Runners & Walkers.
Sports & Event Team Coordinator for the Central
Florida State Massage Therapy Assn.
