May 24, 2002, was the day that changed my life. At the time, I was a football coach over at Manatee High School. It was a Friday afternoon, practice had ended, and I hopped on my motorcycle to head home. While driving home, a truck pulled out in front of me and I had a horrible accident.

I was sent to an accident clinic where for 3 months, I was getting massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments, ultrasound, electric stem, traction, decompression, rolling table, etc. The problem was that three months later, my pain level really didn’t change.

I told the doctor that I was done with treatment since it wasn’t helping and that’s when he suggested… let’s try some massage. I remember I kind of laughed out loud and said, “Ok… where’s my white robe and cucumbers for my eyes?” Because that was my perception of massage, something you’d get on vacation.

But instead, it only took 4 sessions, and I was 80% better!!

I couldn’t understand why the specific massage work I had helped so much while all the other therapies they offered didn’t.

That’s when I knew what I wanted to do. I’m actually grateful for that motorcycle wreck because it’s put me on the path of helping people out of chronic pain for over 15 years now.
