Michael O’Rourke graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, New York where he was trained in multiple modalities to include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Medical Massage, Elder Massage, Shiatsu, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, and Energy and Polarity Therapy.
Mike places the highest value in the therapist/client relationship. He tailors each and every massage specific to his clients needs. Mike believes that the most important thing he can offer beyond any technique is a mindful and compassionate presence, which can facilitate the innate healing ability within the recipient. Mike lives in a positive, happy, and holistic mindset each and every day and his energy and smiles are boundless and truly contagious. One of Mike’s favorite quotes is, “Your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe.” Mike loves nature and being outdoors. When not training for some random half marathon you can find him running, rock-climbing, camping, hiking, biking, or playing one of his many favorite sports.
