Hey everyone, I’m Tim- I was born and raises in Alpena, grew up on a dairy farm. I’m a graduate of Irene’s Myomassology institute, in Southfield. I’ve always liked nearing people feel better, and improving the lives of others. I especially enjoy giving a therapeutic style of massage- working with things like post accident/surgery recovery- stiff neck, frozen shoulder, sciatic pain, chronic back pain- I love the look on my clients face when they can move their arm again! Outside of my practice, I’m engaged, my fiancé and I own a small hobby farm with chickens, ducks, goats and a steer. We also have two dogs, a Great Dane and a red heeler. And three words that would sum up who I am Balance , chaos, and tranquility I’m a big believer In balance in all things- light is nothing without dark- my life is a giant contradiction, and I love it!
