Sean was born in Gainesville, FL at Gainesville Region Hospital. Before going to massage school, he wanted to help people in a holistic way, addressing a person as a whole person rather than only certain parts of them. He decided that massage was his first step to doing so.
He graduated from Florida School of Massage. While in school, Sean gravitated towards Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT). NMT is an effective massage technique that is based on scientific foundations and used by Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, and other practitioners around the world. There are two main ways of practicing NMT, and Sean is highly educated in both. Sean likes how NMT combines and works well with deep tissue therapy; he can work one whole muscle but can also focus on each fiber inside that muscle and find where there are tension and adhesion. He can get very detailed while also being comprehensive. This creates a lot of relief for his patients.
He notes that NMT is extremely effective in a short time period, especially for acute complaints. This makes it perfect for our 25-minute sessions and still great for the 55-minute sessions. Clients typically say that they receive the most focused work they’ve ever had when they see Sean. While NMT can be extremely helpful, it’s important to keep in mind, with chronic conditions, all modalities take time to work. For someone with chronic complaints, it could take about 2-3 months to get to the point where they feel fully back to normal. Sean says, “It takes time to break rhythm or cycle”. With acute issues, however, he usually sees people have relief within a week or two.
Sean loves FOOD and just went back to being vegetarian. He’s a wonderful human being and can’t wait to help you with your concerns.
