CranioSacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

I developed my distinct rhythmic massage style I call ISOCHRONIC TOUCH over many years, working both privately and at premier gyms, training facilities, and Yoga studios in the tri-state area.
My massage is a mixture of deep relaxation and healing through the integration of Eastern and Western styles of touch coupled with my energetic studies through the practice and teaching of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
My approach to the body is an educated, focused, no B.S. style of combating stress, relaxing tension, encouraging your bodies self repairing of problem areas and educating people about functional wellness.
I am an Artist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer, Kundalini Yoga Instructor, and founder of
IN TOUCH MEN wellness workshops.
