The resident black belt massage therapist and movement specialist, Jay provides a grounded approach to releasing and relieving soft tissue pain and integrates Tai Chi to strengthen and coordinate the body.  Studied in karate, tae kwondo, aikido, muy thai kickboxing, and kung fu, Jay utilizes his knowledge of the body's ability to deliver and receive force to help create personalized programs for clients seeking a deep awareness and connection to their bodies.

Jay has over 20 years of experience working as a  massage therapist and teaching advanced medical massage procedures. He has worked extensively with patients suffering from carpal tunnel, TMJ, migraines, and low back pain. His dynamic knowledge of kinesiology and ergonomics allow him to provide a well rounded therapy that both calms and galvanizes the body.

With a degree in the influence of religion on science fiction and fantasy literature, Jay is fascinated by personal narratives and how they inform client perceptions of the world and themselves. Providing visualization, free association, and martial meditation exercises, he prepares clients to navigate the internal dialogues of self that inform our belief systems and behavior.
