About Richard

A licensed massage therapist with a strong foundation in both Western and Eastern massage techniques, I studied massage at the Swedish Institute after previously earning a BA degree in sociology at SUNY Buffalo.  I am trained in various  therapeutic techniques: Swedish, myofascial release, shiatsu, deep tissue massage & trigger point therapy.  Currently, I work in spa environments, make house calls through and occasionally see my own clients as I steadily build my own practice.

    Whether it is pain relief, relaxation or addressing a specific injury or condition, every client is unique. Therefore I like to tailor the massage to the client’s needs by first assessing needs through both verbal and written intake. Once this is done a customized plan using a specific massage technique or integrative approach by fusing different modalities is crafted to address the client's specific needs and general well-being.
