** COVID-19 Update **

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. Howard and others in his office do not wear masks and you are not required to wear a mask.


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 a 38 on the Wonderlic Personnel Test and scored a 144 (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:

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.
