Greetings and salutations! My name is Mike, and massage has been a part of my lifestyle my entire life.
I graduated from the Connecticut School of Massage Therapy, and specialize in Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Sports Massage. I am licensed, nationally certified, and an active member of the AMTA of which I am a member of the Sports Massage and Community Service Teams.
I am currently attending classes for craniosacral therapy, and have completed levels 1,2, & 3 of the Qigong Science Foundation for breathing and healing techniques. I work at several wellness centers in the Hartford area providing massage to a broad range of clients, of which several are classically trained musicians, and professional athletes as well.
I have been practicing martial arts for 40 years, and hold a seventh degree black belt in the art of KaJuKenBo, as well as extensive study in Aikido and Arnis. Healing is fundamental to martial arts, and massage is the perfect way for me to integrate that aspect into my life.
I attended my first concert at the age of 17, it was 1968, and I was totally blown away by the Jimi Hendrix Experience at the gymnasium of Stony Brook University. It was full speed ahead after that (back then you could see a show for $5)! Hooking up with Dr. Dot was of course a natural fit. So give me a call and let me melt that tension right out of your body!

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
