Michael Cole, Licensed Massage Therapist

Michael Cole

Michael graduated from the Institute of Bodywork Studies and has helped many clients since becoming licensed in 2004. He has advanced training in many areas of massage but his primary focus has been in the field of medical massage. Medical massage combines hot stones, swedish, trigger point, myofascial release, deep tissue and sports massage techniques in an effort to relieve the aches and pains associated with living in a stress filled world. As no two people have the exact same problems, each massage is tailored to the specific needs of the client.

Michael’s skills continue to grow through continuing education and private studies that focus on a full body approach that provides relief from immediate pain as well as long lasting results.

When asked about the future of massage Michael replied, “With the rising cost of healthcare in our country I think people are looking for alternative ways to keep themselves healthy. Right now if you have aches and pains you have two commonly perceived choices: medications from physicians or manipulation from chiropractors. I believe medical massage will be a strong third option.”

Michael always puts the needs of his clients at the forefront of any massage service and strongly believes in educating and informing his clients.
