Hello and Welcome!
My name is Tom Hardesty and I have been a certified massage therapist since 2002. I am skilled in several massage techniques, from relaxing Swedish massage to therapeutic techniques such as deep tissue, sports and neuromuscular massage. I also incorporate Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki when needed, as well as specialty techniques like lymphatic drainage and pre-natal massage.
The body is a complex organism with many inter-related systems, and healing is often required on multiple levels. My philosophy is to treat not only the symptoms of the pain and dysfunction, but to also go deeper, when necessary, to find and address the root cause of the problem. I do this through a combination of deep tissue, light touch and subtle energy techniques.
My own healing journey began many years ago and I use my personal experiences as well as those I have aquired in my time as a massage therapist to help my clients find not just relief from pain but also wellness and vitality.
