About Tom

My Vision

I have a "vision to make movement better for everyone. Because when we are free to move, anything is possible."

My goal is to help you achieve the freedom to move without pain, and to give you the tools and skills to find balance, flexibility, so you can perform your best and have more fun.

My Story

I have been in practice doing Hellerwork Structural and Movement Integration since completing my training in 1985. I continued my education with Joseph Heller through advanced workshops and classes. I've studied Cranio-Sacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute and continue to study Visceral Manipulation with the Barral Institute.

I'm known for my highly skilled and sensitive touch, as well as for my expertise in body mechanics and movement. Throughout my life i've worked with skills that require balance, strength, and sensitivity. From designing, shaping and testing surfboards to playing saxophones and flutes as a professional musician.

Teaching people to breathe is one of my areas of expertise. From my background as a professional musician and my practice of yoga, I've discovered the impact that relaxed breathing can have on your daily life. Restricted breathing is one of the main symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks and depression. My sensitivity in working with these problems has been a key to many people's health and well being.

I have worked with people of all ages, from babies and children to elderly clients, and I feel my gift is to help when people are going through crisis and life transitions.

This has come from my personal experience of the dramatic change Hellerwork made in my own life. From helping people improve their posture and eliminate pain, to helping people be more consistent and confident in sports and performance arts, to delivering a more powerful presentation at a meeting, my own discoveries can help me guide you to discover your own potential.

When I'm not working, I spend as much time as possible with my wife, son, and my two daughters. I stay in shape for work, hiking and travel with my wife, surfing and if my daughters move out, after the Covid-19 pandemic, I'm hoping to get my chops back on the sax and flute.
