About Mike

I began studying acupressure and massage therapy (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in 2000, just after graduating from high school. Health and wellness have always been a passion of mine. Both for myself and others. I studied TCM, and anatomy/physiology, practiced yoga, and participated in acupressure massage clinics with the Tao Institute for ten years.

I graduated in 2010 with certification as a reiki practitioner, acupressure technician, and yoga teacher.

My practice is based upon the five element theory and balances with the wisdom of nature.

I currently volunteer and practice acupressure massage (no needles) with The Center for Self-Healing. In 2016 I took a break from our acupressure massage clinics and ran for State Senate. I campaigned again in 2020 and lost a second time. I’m employed full-time with Benton County Human Services and enjoy helping the people we serve in our local community.

My holistic style of practice offers people a chance to feel comfortable wherever they are in this ever-changing journey we call life. Like the yin yang symbol, I feel that people benefit most from a mix of Western (allopathic) medicine and Eastern holistic health therapies. An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.

When we work with the 12 main meridians and the eight extraordinary vessels the Chi (Qi) energy flows freely and circulation increases bringing about physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Credentials can be provided upon request. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.
