John’s philosophy is that you are your own best help at being aware of what is occurring with your body and giving it what it needs to keep it in optimum condition. Within his practice, his goal is to initially help eliminate or decrease pain and restore normal function while determining and addressing what caused the issue. By changing the bad habit you decrease or eliminate the cause. Rebalancing the body is then achieved with massage treatments combined with stretching and strengthening exercises. Exercises are performed and instructed during a session and given as self-help homework. Through all this, you will become more aware of your own body and how it is functioning. With the exercises learned/demonstrated by John, you can help your body daily. Eventually, you will only require regular maintenance massage tune-ups and added homework if needed.
