Bryan

Massage Therapist

Bryan has been practicing since 2014, after graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage. His favorite modality is Swedish Massage and he likes to focus on the core fundamentals of the field. What inspired him most about massage therapy was seeing so many people not live up to their full potential or do everything that they were created to do simply because their bodies weren’t well cared for. Bryan believes that his bodywork, in turn, is helping to make the world a better place!
