His sensitivity and awareness allow him to customize each session to the needs of the client. He specializes in Swedish, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release.
Matt graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Therapeutic Massage in 2006. He is also trained in both Orthopedic Massage and Craniosacral Therapy and integrates techniques from both modalities into his work.

This is the kind you’re most likely to encounter at a spa. Stress-reduction massage can also induce a state of mind called the Relaxation Response, which has been shown to minimize the effects of stress and boost your immune system. Everyone knows that a stressful day will cause the muscles in your shoulders and neck to tighten. For some, symptoms can even include a tense jaw, back ache, fatigue and headaches. When you’re feeling overwhelmed and even simple movement is stiff, our Stress-reduction Massage is likely to bring you immediate relief.
For more severe or chronic pain you should consider our Therapeutic Massage.

OUR SIGNATURE MASSAGE. Blends a general Swedish-based massage with muscular therapy techniques to reduce significant tension due to either muscle strain or excessive stress. Some discomfort may result during treatment but a renewed sense of ease and feeling relaxed should last for several days. All sessions are customized for individual needs.
With that in mind, we ask that you please communicate with your therapist about the technique and pressure to be used. You may need to upgrade to one of our Advanced Bodywork modalities (see Integrative Bodywork or Deep Tissue Massage) if your pain involves several muscles or fascial lines. But if your wish is to feel relaxed and still have some of your pain & tension reduced our Therapeutic Massage is probably right for you.
PLEASE NOTE: 1-hour is recommended when it’s your initial session.
At MTW we strongly feel that because you have a tension pattern that is unique to you, your session should be customized to meet your individual needs/issues. Our therapists are skilled in many healing modalities which they combine to provide you with a truly therapeutic experience for your mind, body and spirit. Our hope is to educate and encourage you to be an active participant in your own health and wellness.

CranioSacral Therapy works with the subtle bones of the skull and sacrum to balance the cerebrospinal fluid which influences many bodily functions. A very gentle approach to re-balancing soft tissue structures often compromised by injury or trauma, it has proven to be very effective in the treatment of chronic pain, migraine headaches, low-back pain, TMJD, and other stress-related symptoms.
Usually only one or two sessions are needed to help make a significant change.
