Chris Shelton has been a licensed massage therapist since 2007. Prior to becoming licensed as a Massage Therapist he worked as a Personal Trainer for five years, which has given him a solid foundation of functional anatomy.
Chris has also received additional education in myofascial work, a kind of connective tissue therapy. When this therapy is performed, it can help free the connective tissue that houses the muscles (which is often bound and tight from overuse, injury, repetitive strain and postural imbalances), consequently, allowing more freedom in movement, pain reduction, and a greater sense of fluidity and ease in day to day activities.
