Registered Massage Therapist
Liam believes that the key to good health is a holistic approach. Every facet of one’s life can affect the others. The mind controls the body, the body affects the mind - which in turn causes further change in the body - repeating in cycles and creating imbalance. As a graduate of the Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy, Liam studied more than simple physiology and massage techniques - specializing in scar tissue development, natal growth, and the nervous system. Liam takes an integrative medical approach to massage, combining Swedish and myo-fascial techniques with stretching, movement, and exercises gleaned from his years as a stage performer to create treatment plans based on the specific needs of each client. Liam provides education and encouragement, rooted in understanding.
