Andrew is a Certified Massage Therapist [CMT], a long-time road racer, track cyclist, mountain biker and former USA Cycling Certified Coach.
“Over the past few years, my work has morphed into a rehabilitation-oriented physical therapy, not just massage.
“My job is really to prevent injury and/or psychological issues common to high-level training techniques – especially burnout – then on getting my clients and athletes back to their full ability and competitive focus after injury or issues.
“I train my athletes and clients to take better care of themselves from every angle: diet, sleep, timing, efforts, and rest. Client who stick with my programs see marked improvements in their overall lives, not just their athletic abilities and they LOVE how I listen and give crucial feedback.
“I work from a physical and a psychological standpoint: these two aspects of human nature strongly influence each other.
“Just ask any serious athlete.”
