Jeff has been an active bodyworker and movement educator since graduating from the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular & Massage Therapy in 1994. His 20 plus year journey to understand and coalesce the best that the field of bodywork has to offer has led him to study with many teachers in the field of health and wellness engaging his never-ending desire to grow and learn. Delving into many forms of bodywork, awareness practices, movement trainings, and an ongoing study of human anatomy contribute to the knowledge base he offers his clients. Jeff holds certifications in various forms of bodywork including Kinesis Myofascial Integration, Neuromuscular Therapy, Shiatsu, Chi Na and Myofascial Release.

Many years of private practice inspired Jeff to begin teaching others. For six years he was a respected teacher of Myology ,Neuromuscular Therapy, Postural Assessment and Myofascial Release at The Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. Interest in the martial arts spurred by Saturday morning Kung Fu Theater in childhood led to years of study with Sifu Mike Stults in Chuan Fa Gung Fu and eventually to a black sash and instructor title in the system.
