Morgan is a highly skilled masseur with a great deal of experience, and an amazing range of expertise in different massage techniques and traditions. He combines thorough knowledge of anatomy and musculature with excellent instincts and intuition for reading the body. I went to him several times with activity-related injuries (a back problem from skiing, a shoulder injury, etc) and each time, he was able to figure out a treatment that improved my mobility and decreased my pain significantly. I have referred several friends to him, and they have had similar experiences. His office is bright and spotlessly clean, and I suspect anyone would feel comfortable with and confident in his treatment. Best of all, he is a true professional–prompt, efficient, thorough–and seems to really care about the needs, health, and comfort of his clients.
