** COVID-19 Update **

May 16, 2020 Update:

According to the Florida Department of Health, the State Surgeon General has confirmed that Section 5 (Elective Services) of the Governor's Executive Order 20-112 applies to massage therapists. This clarification allows me to reopen my two offices, which will begin on May 18, 2020. 

I will be wearing a mask to protect my clients and their families, as well as my co-workers and other clients who may be in the building. Clients are asked to please wear a mask when entering the building. We will do all the necessary disinfecting of surfaces and physical distancing. However, anyone who chooses to receive a massage understands that there cannot be physical distancing during that session and they are assuming any health risks because of that and do not hold the therapist liable in any way.

The first openings will be offered to clients who lost their appointments, followed by other clients in chronological order. If you are a new client, feel free to contact Howard for other possible openings in the schedule that haven't been taken.

April 30, 2020 Update:

Since the governor has extended his order for Personal Service businesses, I will not be opening until that is lifted. He said that it shouldn't be months from now, but possibly weeks. Hopefully, I'll be able to open by late-May.

April 29, 2020 Update:

Updated Symptoms List from the CDC:
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Cough
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

              --- OR ---
at least TWO of these symptoms:
- Fever
- Chills
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Headache
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell

April 25, 2020 Update:

Since there have been more discussions lately of "opening Florida," I have begun putting a plan together for what changes/requirements my business will need to have when I'm finally able to open. I'm considering sending a questionnaire email with all the possible changes to the clients who either cancelled their appointment in mid- to late-March and the clients who I had to cancel from late-March through the month April. If you have any ideas for what questions you'd like me to ask everyone, please email those to me. I'm looking forward to helping you again with my massage therapy, but only if we all feel safe!

April 20, 2020 Update:

At the current rate of the virus spreading in Brevard County, it's looking doubtful that my massage business will be able to open on May 1, 2020. Please monitor this page for any new updates.

The New England Journal of Medicine just released a paper on an experiment with a video that shows the spread of potential virus particles when talking. It mentions how the "droplets" dehydrate and become "aerosol," which is what lingers in the air for possibly up to three hours. This helps explain why it's important to wear a mask in public places until the amount of the virus spreading is at a much lower level. Here is a link to that paper:

https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2007800 

March 31, 2020 Update:

As of today, my massage business is closed at both locations, due to the pandemic. 

I just learned that the virus can be carried invisibly through the air for up to three hours, not just on surfaces that can be disinfected. If you want to read the story that proved this and convinced me, go to 

https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-03-29/coronavirus-choir-outbreak 

Even though I have no other source of income, I plan to stay at home for my safety and that of my clients and their family members until at least April 30, 2020. If you are scheduled for a massage during April, I will contact you at least 24 hours before your appointment and, hopefully, we will be able to reschedule it to May. But I most likely will not know if that's possible until late April.

Thank you for your continued support! I look forward to us all getting back to our best lives after this passes!


 

You've found the best choice for your Therapeutic Massage needs!
An experienced massage therapist who listens to you, 
uses proper pressure, and gets you the results that you need!

As a full-time Licensed Massage Therapist since April, 2002 with more than 10,000 massages given, Howard specializes in massage techniques that can provide you the most relief, especially if you have muscle pain, limited range of motion, or old injuries. His clients get results quicker (less sessions = less cost) than many other massage therapists because he uses techniques that others don't use.

He is skilled in treating soft tissue conditions that have not been helped by other common therapies, such as muscle relaxant drugs, Physical Therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, steroid shots, or surgery.

To customize your massage session, Howard listens closely to your history and your goals, then adapts his techniques carefully and applies a massage pressure that meets your comfort level. With his unique style of massage, he can help you reach your wellness goals in fewer sessions than many other massage therapists can.

And if an intelligent therapist is what you're looking for, it would be difficult to find another like Howard--he scored in the top 1 percentile on a standardized IQ test (California Test of Mental Maturity) for admittance into Mensa International, The High IQ Society. But instead of working in the computer industry or as a rocket scientist, he uses his intelligence to continually research the most effective ways to help you!

Howard's clients describe him as:

professional
caring
knowledgeable
effective
a therapist who really listens!

He specializes in therapeutic massage for many conditions that haven't been helped by other therapies or other therapists. Before scheduling a massage with any therapist, be sure to ask the massage therapist if he or she has had success in treating your specific condition. 

Howard has had years of success in treating clients with the following conditions:

Howard also offers Alpha-Stim treatments for pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, fibromyalgia, and migraines.

Office sessions available in Melbourne and Cocoa.

House Calls available in Melbourne, Palm Bay, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, Melbourne Beach, Rockledge, Cocoa Beach, Suntree, and Viera
