Instrument-Assisted, Soft Tissue Mobilization.

It is our mission to consistently achieve the ability to help our clients attain goals previously thought impossible by using our various massage Methods.
Hello! My name is Chris and I am the Owner and therapist of Methods Massage. Since the age of 5 I have been a year-round athlete. I played football, baseball, and wrestled until I graduated high school. Then I became interested in personal training, nutrition and fitness competitions. I discovered massage and sports therapy in high school because I constantly beat my body up and needed a quick form of recovery to get back in the game. After experiencing the beauty of massage I knew that it would always be a part of who I am, eventually turning into my profession!
After graduating High School I worked as a PTA in Hayden, ID for 3 years, but I still craved more knowledge and techniques for injury prevention and recovery. Which is what ultimately led me to look into further schooling to become an LMT as well.
I have a passion for fixing people as well as getting the athlete to perform at their optimal level. And with a background in Personal training, Physical Therapy, and Massage It allows me to create the perfect catered session for your lifestyle. Life is too short to live in pain, so please stop by METHODS and let me get you on track to living a happier and healthier life.
