Ben grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina and has always had an interest in improving the environment around him through social interaction, constructive communication, and mindful touch. He moved to DC in 2005 armed with a BA in communications where he gained experience working in nonprofit management, finance, and customer services.
In 2013, Ben decided to change careers, and follow his interest in holistic health and mindful touch to the Potomac Massage Training Institute. He graduated in 2015, with rigorous training in relaxation and deep tissue massage, and since has pursued further training in myofascial release and Reiki.
Drawing on these modalities, and often integrating essential oils, Ben works with each client as an individual to establish a clear therapeutic plan for the session, or for a set of sessions over time. He relies on his communication skills and training to translate the techniques of massage therapy into an experience of being on the table. This approach ensures that clients know what to expect before the session begins, and can use that awareness to relax into each session, allowing the healing that comes with mindful touch to occur.
Ben brings an enthusiasm for physical conditioning and maintenance, a passion for education, and a commitment to routine holistic and therapeutic care to his clients. In his free time, he loves to explore cooking with health conscious ingredients, regularly attends local musicals and cabarets with his husband, Chris, and enjoys playing in his back yard with his dog, Piper
